Value Added Curriculum
At NSHM, we know what it takes to help students innovate. To achieve this end, we have introduced various programs to give them access to a wide gamut of knowledge, necessary to secure the confidence needed to bag the best jobs and deliver excellent performances once placed.
Global Employability Programme (GEP)
This programme keeps our students abreast of the happenings in the international job market. While gaining in-depth knowledge in their respective curricula, the students also get the know-how necessary to bag international offers.
This provides the MBA students with the “X” factor in education- industry interface, dual specialsation, graded projects with excellent infrastructural help.
Prof. Krishnendu Sarkar has devised a unique plan to evaluate over-all performance of our students. “My Call” lists aspects of student life like punctuality, internal assessments, on-campus presentability, co-curricular activities etc. on a scale of ten. Students mark their own targets and performance and thus find out where they need to put more effort.
The club run by marketing communication students focuses on various aspects of brands and events. In every semester, a competition is organised for students to participate from different portals and industry stalwarts are invited to evaluate their efforts. The club is as old as the college and students, who are the committee members, get 360 degrees exposure in every aspect of branding and communication.
The club is mentored by Prof. Madhupa Bakshi, Prof. Manali Bhattacharya and Ms. Anindita Sarkar.
