Student Life at JAGSOM

JAGSOM believes in the principle that a sound mind and fit body is essential for any management graduate to survive a long strenuous career. Students are encouraged to have a vibrant and engaging schedule during their two years on campus. Students are involved in a variety of extracurricular and cocurricular activities. The diverse clubs, events and competitions provide an opportunity to students to develop and showcase their talent.

Effective Execution (EE)

The Effective Execution intervention aims at enhancing the ability of students to address the challenges of collaboration, conflict resolution, timely and cost-effective execution of critical activities to achieve specific milestones in institution building activities.

The course focuses on developing execution skills of management students by focusing on ‘Learning by Doing’ as managers and future leaders. Students are expected to understand the role and responsibility of a manager, cognitive ambidexterity of an administrator and agile leadership style of an effective leader while facing the ambiguity of the VUCA world.

Each first-year student compulsorily becomes the part of one committee. The student is empowered to take a lead or a collaborative role to envision the committee’s developmental goals, strategic goals, and streamline routine activities.

Outbound Leadership Lab (OLL)

The Outbound Leadership Lab aims to help the students develop an ‘Individual Development Plan’ through experiential outbound activities and psychometric diagnosis leading to development of self-transformational activities. The activities are focused on Leadership and Team Building.

Personality Enhancement Program (PEP)

Since its inception, the Personality Enhancement Program has been an impactful catalyst in promoting fitness as one of the primary goals for every student. We are perhaps the only institute to have Personality Enhancement Program (PEP), a life-skill and lifestyle oriented program integrated into the curriculum as a credited course. This deals with the honing of the various aspects of Holistic Personality.

The PEP is conducted in two tracks, Life skills and Lifestyle

  • Life Skills: Projecting personality through sharpened communication skills, a well-groomed exterior, sharp negotiation skills and appropriate workplace etiquette.
  • Lifestyle: Practicing a fitness regime, but also be aware of own level of fitness and other factors that contribute to wellness.

Social Immersion Program (SIP)

Social Immersion Program (SIP), a unique initiative that sensitizes students to the needs of the community and enables them to identify their social problems through research. Students learn to design solutions for social problems through a Techno Economic Viability (TEV) study, thereby enabling sustainable, socially positive and measurable impact.

The School has tied up with many NGOs to facilitate the immersion component of the program. Some of the NGOs we partner with are World Vision India, Action Aid, Art of Living (AOL), Anti-Pollution Drive, Help Age India, Biocon Foundation, CARE India, CRY, Bachpan Bachao Andolan.

JAGSOM has selected 7 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations to focus on
