  17. 17. Brochure 2009 - 2010 Skill Enhancement Many students generally display limited skill sets. It has been Skyline’s endeavour to maximise each student’s professional and social skills and prepare them for responsible positions at the place of work. Management games bring out those areas which need most attention, among them being communication (written, verbal and body language) personal presentations, ability to work in teams, leadership and qualities of tolerance. HR experts also give training by identifying attitudes as well as personal goals and drivers. In each semester, special emphasis is also laid on corporate requirements and ability to understand each incumbency, face competition and sustain positions, and an ability to stay updated in the changing environment and stay ahead in knowledge of the relevant work area. Mock interviews and group discussions are held/conducted to test whether the students have been able to develop the skills that they initially lacked and later imbibed at the institute. Students are also encouraged to participate in inter-college events in areas of professional competence like business quizzes, paper presentations, business plans and advertising events. Students organise events on their own initiative and management with minimal support from faculty. This develops their organisational skills while keeping the perspective of managing within budgets. 23

  34. 34. SKYLINE BUSINESS SCHOOL SKYLINE SCHOOL OF COMMUNICATIONS SKYLINE INSTITUTE OF TRAVEL TOURISM From the Director’s Desk Through these pages, we give you a glimpse of a student’s years at Skyline. A glimpse of the expectations of students from us and our expectations from the students. Success undoubtedly will be spelt out when both expectations match each other. Our success story has been written by our students, who are now all over the globe. Students who are in organisations, that know us through them and vice versa. We have always believed that education must necessarily be a part of mainstream Business and Corporate activity. While interacting with Corporates during their project and internships we get immense insight into our students’ acceptability in the corporate sector, and whether they have imbibed skills which will lead them through their course. As the pace of change is unprecedented, the new world demands new skills and aptitudes. And this is our ultimate vision. To see our students well equipped for the new world. We invite those who wish to share our vision. Praveen Puri 42
