DBIMR Kurla Welcomes Freshers

By Mario Vaz sdb
Mumbai, Sep. 5. Don Bosco  Institute of Management & Research at Kurla, Mumbai welcomed  the 2nd batch of students on August 22, 2011. An orientation programme centered on 'light'was organised. Fr Mario Vaz, Executive Director initiated the proceedings with a welcome note.
Fr. Adolph Furtado, Director of DBCL (Don Bosco Centre for Learning)delivered the keynote  address  appreciating  the  various  initiatives  of the  Institute, particularly emphasising the  NGO experience of students and the Dharavi  Management Fest. These two forays, he hoped, would make students aware of how much can be done with so little. He substantiated this by quoting the example of a small country like Israel which has  more  venture  capital and  is also  a larger IT  provider than the USA. He also stated that he would like the Management Institute to focus on Research.

The  Principal Advisor, Mr. Conrad  Saldanha addressed the students and the parents and pointed out that the  Don Bosco  Institute of Management and Research emphasised  the  importance of achieving  'Excellence  with a  Soul'. He  also  pointed  out  how the  Management  Institute  had  responded to the  needs being felt  namely; Industry - Academia linkages, getting the best Faculty, creating  a level playing  field  by  giving  remedial/tutorial classes, making the  student  job - ready, the  Social  entrepreneurship  cell  and so on. He  assured the parents  that  the  focus of  the Institute  will  always  primarily  remain in striving to create  good  citizens as  per  the ideals of Don Bosco.

The  students  demonstrated  in great  detail  their  learnings  from  their involvement in working with  NGOs , the Dharavi  Management Fest, the  different  Guest  faculty  from  industry, the different  pedagogies  used  by  Faculty, the Industry visits, the  connecting with the students  of  Don Bosco University, Guwahati,  the  fun  involved  through the  celebration of different  days (Friendship  Day, Valentine's Day etc.) and the football triumph. The new entrants were made aware that this programme is tough and therefore needs total application and involvement.
