College study programme benefits MBA students

Students from Bangalore successfully complete productivity, leadership and management study programme at City of Glasgow College.

MBA students from the RV Institute of Management in Bangalore took part in the course at the college’s Riverside campus.

The two week study programme, in partnership with the Institute of Productivity, is aimed at MBA (Master of Business Administration) students who wish to undertake an 'added value' programme in the UK, providing an introduction to productivity concepts and approaches to productivity improvement.

Carla Murray, Associate Director, Business and International at City of Glasgow College, said:

“We were delighted to welcome students and staff from RV Institute of Management. This study programme is project based with scenarios set by industry. It gives students the opportunity to apply their knowledge and test their understanding in a relevant work context while further developing their management skills.”

The students also took part in industry visits covering a range of topics relevant to both the global environment and competitive strategy of international business. Experiential learning sessions also allowed them to demonstrate and develop entrepreneurial skills including creativity, initiative, critical thinking, adaptability, leadership and resourcefulness.

Professor Daniel Khan, Chief Operating Officer for the Institute of Productivity, said:

“This programme helps students develop core leadership skills to help drive productivity performance, while offering a chance to develop valuable skills to compete in an increasingly competitive employment market.”

The study programme is delivered in partnership with the Institute of Productivity which has developed a range of validated modular qualifications relating to productivity and performance improvement.
