INTERACTIVE PROGRAM TO ENHANCE STUDENTS’ AWARENESS AND CONSCIOUSNESS ON THEIR CAREER CHOICE AND OPPORTUNITIES FOR SUCCESS: A TALK SHOW
This programe was organized by the Faculty of Business Administration with the end in view to inculcate on the minds of the students the importance of career choice and the good prospects of this career. It has been observed that the students are not confident on what major to take in their BBA program. We know that there are students who are strongly influenced by the parents, relatives, friends, classmates and others in their choice of a career. In order that the students can have a more reliable guidance on what major to take in BBA, this talk show was organized with no less than the selected faculty Department Heads, Program directors, Asso Dean and Dean elaborated on the rationale for taking the major and what opportunities or prospects await the graduates for their respective major.
Each resource person was given 3-5 minutes talk about the major. When everybody had spoken, an open forum was conducted to allow students to raise some questions specifically addressed to a particular speaker.
Some of these questions are:
-How does AIUB prepare our students for professional degrees in accounting?
-There is a perception that Marketing is just selling. Is this true?
-If Marketing is really a man’s job, what do ladies do then?
-How is International Business distinctive?
-Is there a position for a marketing major in the Bank?
-How will MIS help students in their upcoming career life?
and many more.
