Exciting and eventful as always, last year at IoBM has been no exception. Following are some examples to give you a glimpse of life at IoBM in general:

Student life at IoBM is not just about presentations, reports, midterms and finals. In fact, there is a whole range of student-organized entertainment and events that take place throughout the year. Students on campus are genuinely interested in cultural vibrancy and a sense of community. In between the busy academic schedule there are seminars, talk shows, guest speakers, fund raiser bake sales, the Event Management class food and fun stalls, CBMUN, Green Day, Drama festival and so much more. One can never get enough of it.

To cater to the individual student’s choice, there are a number of societies for like-minded people such as:

Literary and Public Speaking; Finance; Mathematics; Entrepreneurs; Club IT; CBM Society for Health Managers; Egalitarians- Economics; Youth Enhancement; Enlighten; Industrial Engineering & Management; Dialogue; Marketing; Strategic & Human Resource; Entertainment Plus; Vanguard and the Sports Society; Mentor; SWAT and Music & Arts Society (MARTS). Each society is headed by a faculty advisor who is a senior member of the faculty or management and a team of student office bearers. These societies are diverse in their activities, organizing university-wide forums for students to talk about and debate social, economic, and political issues; organize seminars & workshops where they invite well known personalities from the business, government and corporate world. This provides them with an opportunity to exchange ideas and opinions with market leaders.

Our students participate in various events organized by other universities / institutes locally, as well as, nationally and have won laurels for their Institute. Social care is a regular feature of these societies. Every year in the month of Ramadan donations in cash and kind are collected and, along with the Management’s major contribution, distributed to the needy in various hospitals of the city. Among other regular features is blood donation camps put up from time to time.
