Globsyn Business School, with its belief in learning ‘Beyond Education’, also recognised outstanding contributions of several of their student-volunteers who are a part of the Kalyani Youth Leadership Forum (KYLF). Members of KYLF undertake the B-School’s ‘care for society’ initiatives implemented under the aegis of Kalyani – a Bikram Dasgupta Foundation. Kalyani works with a credo of ‘touching human lives’ through projects aimed at providing long-term benefits to women, the elderly and the differently-abled. ‘Care for Society’ activities form a regular part of the event calendar for the management students of GBS whose leadership skills and managerial abilities are shaped while executing large format community development projects.
The 15th Annual Convocation also marked Globsyn Business School as the first AICTE approved B-School in India to use Blockchain technology to issue diplomas – a feat that has yet to be achieved by any other academic institutions in India, and among the very few to have taken this disruptive step globally. The rollout of the diplomas on Blockchain will allow the students and their prospective employers to access the diploma credentials from any geographical location, without any need to send or present physical certificates. All students graduating from the postgraduate programmes of GBS will now be able to share the credential of their diplomas with future employers and higher education institutions around the world without any hassle.
Enhancing on the technology-connect of the B-School, Rahul Dasgupta, Director, Globsyn Business School said, “Globsyn Business School was started in 2002 with a vision to create industry-ready managers for the technology-driven knowledge economy. Having been promoted by Globsyn with deep roots in IT hardware, training and fulfilment, GBS uses technology-enabled platforms and systems in all its operations and processes. With Globsyn now looking at Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Data Analytics and Internet of Things as an area of focus, the students of our B-School can only expect greater dependence on these emerging technologies to further improve the academic delivery process.”
