“The thrust of business education is shifting from expansion of the business world to growth of leadership and towards a system
where the future managers are trained to be team players rather than individuals seeking the fulfilment of their own goals.”
The journey towards excellence always begins with self-discovery. JK Business School has been accepted by the Industry as an active and vibrant business education institution which is closely aligned with the corporate practices.
JK Business School prepares students for the managerial leadership that will be expected of them in the coming years. In order to be able to lead, they would have to be able to inspire, to be innovative and creative. They would need to communicate effectively and achieve results through teamwork and be sensitive, disciplined and responsible. During their years at JKBS, we get them started on the path of leadership by providing the best possible resources and an inspiring environment.
The power of the future lies in the power of mind. That is why education systems around the world are geared towards development of the power of the young mind through an enterprise approach that focuses on the evolution of ethical management leaders.
Our PGDM Programme is an exhaustive series of stimulating workshops, lively seminars, resolute team work, proactive task management; and focused hands an exposure to corporate practices, where a student develops aptitude to think both logically, laterally and act rationally. The recent global recession has, more powerfully than ever before, differentiated business leaders from mere business owners. Conscious effort is made to integrate their employability skills with the academic assignments. This makes JKBS students highly sought-after by industries throughout India and abroad.
It is an exciting journey and I look forward to your support in our initiative to nurture the Leaders of tomorrow
