INLEAD Shines Again

Brand INLEAD is just getting bigger and better day by day. Last year INLEAD had made its mark by sending students in Commonwealth Games. In CWG games students were hired by different event companies and they were all given big responsibilities in the organization of the overall event. Students of last year batches were anxious and excited to showcase their talents and skills they have learned in the class by facing the real time situations like the opening and closing ceremonies.
As India is growing at a tremendous pace and after successfully organizing the Commonwealth games many international organizers are viewing India as a great potential for rising in the events industry which ultimately will reflect in INDIA’s GDP. Keeping this in mind JPSI (Jaypee Sports International) is bringing Formula 1 to India on 30th October. With two Indian drivers and one Indian team in the mix of things the craze of F1 is touching all time high.

INLEAD is all set to make its mark again with this F1 event. Through CIA (Corporate Industry Alliance) INLEAD has associated itself with different companies involving the hospitality and facility services and as well as the event companies. These companies have selected the events, facility management and the hospitality students to do the respective jobs. Events students would be helping in overall successful organization of the event while the hospitality and facility management students would be providing the best hospitality services to the esteemed guests who all will be coming on 30th of October. Students from INLEAD are very fortunate to get an amazing chance to be part of this event and gain some practical exposure as well.

So INLEAD wishes all the students ALL THE BEST to do well and make INLEAD proud once again.

Importance of OJT in Employability

Now colleges are coming up with the Internships or On Jobs Training (OJT) during the graduation/post graduation stage where students can apply the learning’s from academics in the real world. Through this they would be learning in a practical way and hence would be enhancing their skill sets which are needed for employability. Through OJT’s students would be getting Exposure (of the real world), Confidence (of facing real situations) and they would be doing Networking (making contacts) for themselves. OJT’s would also help them understand what are their real strengths and weaknesses.

Inlead situated in Gurgaon is one such institute which follows this pattern. They have divided their course module in four quarters. In quarter one student would be learning the basic concepts, depending on the course they would choose. Then in quarter two they would go for their OJT’s. Then in quarter three students will further enhance his academic knowledge and finally in quarter four they would either be having pre placements or the final paid internships.

This is in fact the USP of INLEAD Institute. Most Institutes provide Internship at the end of the course but INLEAD would be providing it two times just to provide an extra edge to its students in terms of Exposure and Confidence. INLEAD always motivates its students and makes them believe that they can lead their way through failures and achieves the desired success that they are looking for. It makes them ready to face real time tough situations in the Corporate World.

Brand Management, Want to sustain brand, diversify it

On 19th September Inleaders of July EMPR batch were privileged to attend the industry expert session given by Mr Prakash Chandra Mishra of Wizcraft International. He holds a designation of Account director, where he handles the overall image of Brand Wizcraft in the market. It was a fun Interactive session where he shared his knowledge with us on Brand Equity.
Mr. Prakash began his lecture by telling that how brand sustain its value in the market. According to him Digital marketing is the most important aspect of brand marketing and has gradually evolved a lot in recent 4 -5 years. It is the cheapest and the most effective method of hitting the target audience. During the interaction students came to know that WPP (Wire and plastic products) and PUBLICIS GROUPE are considered to be world’s top communication agencies. They both use Integrated Marketing Approach to help build a brand name in the market.
One another cheap and effective way of doing brand promotions is Public Relations. PR is simply unbiased way of communication which helps a brand in showing its credibility in the market and thereby gaining the essential trust from their target audience.
During the interaction one of the students ask that advertising is also considered as a good way of building a brand. On this Mr. Prakash said that yes it is a good way but it is always considered as a biased approach because Company valo ne ad agency ko paise die hote hai for doing their ad”.
Then he talked about brand equity. In layman terms brand equity can be defined as Goodwill of a brand which has been created in the market. Rapport of a brand is not created in just a day or two, it takes a lot of hard work and duration as well. ITC, GE, IBM, Godrej, Uniliver and Xerox all these brands are very old and they have seen success because of the diversification that these companies had gone under as they grow old and old. So Diversification is the necessity of every Brand. By diversification he means companies needs to have different and innovative products in their kitty rather than concentrating on just one. Brand equity can only be measured based on the product in the market and how easily that can be recalled in the minds of consumer.

My Success Story at INLEAD

My INLEAD experience will stay with me for the life time, guiding me to excel in my career aspirations. As a post graduate student of Corporate Administration and Facility Management, I believe that I made a wise decision in choosing INLEAD as a platform for my professional growth. The teaching methodology and the practical exposure at INLEAD are unique and have been developed keeping in mind the industry requirements and that’s what makes INLEAD stand out in the crowd.
After working for more than two years, I was a little apprehensive about coming back to the classroom. But once I joined the program and met my peers, I was sure INLEAD will be the catalyst for my success.

At INLEAD, the students are trained not only for their professional growth but are also groomed for their personal development that will come handy throughout their lives. The program itself is designed in such a way that during our internships we get a chance to be a part of the corporate world and know how the industry actually works. This really helped me prepare for my Final Placement Interviews and got me placed as Manager Operations in G4S Facility (India) P. Ltd.
INEAD Management and the Office of Student Affairs are exceptionally supportive and guide us throughout our time at the Institute. Personally, I think that INLEAD campus is beyond amazing, it is facilitated with all the latest amenities and the architecture is fabulous. With such a splendid Institute, I am proud to say that I am a part of INLEAD.
