Industrial visits are important in the career of a student who is pursuing MBA courses. Industrial visit provides an insight regarding internal working of Organisation. The theoretical knowledge is not enough for making a good professional career. With an aim of going beyond academics, industrial visits provide student a practical perspective on the world of work. It provides students with an opportunity to learn practically through interaction, working methods and employment practices. It gives them exposure to current work practices as opposed to possibly theoretical knowledge being taught at college. And industrial visits are minimizing this gap by acting as a bridge between them. Industrial visits are very important for every management student as it provides as clear picture to the managers in the making who have the zeal for a bright future. KICMA conducts regular industrial visit for the management students every year.
In an attempt to bring out the creative potential of young minds, KICMA is hosting national level management fest every year. The fest brings together the finest of management schools from all over the country to vie for victory in an open stage. It also helps the students learn to organise a management programme.
Young adults nowadays are faced with a number of issues related to academics and otherwise during their student life. They are in need of an outlet to express their emotional upheavals. This is where a faculty counsellor comes into picture. By making the sessions light and interactive, the faculty counsellor creates a favourable environment for the students to facilitate effective communication. Counselling helps the students concentrate better on their studies without getting emotionally drained by other issues. The total students in KICMA were allocated to six faculty members and a tutorial meeting has been held twice in a month. It provides a platform to all students to present their academics and personal issues with the tutor in charge.
