Community Resilience is the Key to the Future. Here’s how FIIB is Unlocking it during the Time of Crisis!

The global crisis has dramatically changed the way higher education space has operated in the last few months. While gearing up for an online learning edu-force hasn’t been the easiest of the paths, going back to the fundamentals and creating a sense of community is what led FIIB to positively cater to the needs of each of its stakeholder groups even in these times of crisis. 

From keeping students active and engaged virtually with the campus life, to driving meaningful learning opportunities that further their career-growth, to organizing social events that strengthen our network with the wider academic community – FIIB has been on a unstoppable roller-coaster ride that has helped the RACERS community to move forward despite an extraordinary situation like global pandemic. 

Enabling Online Learning & Mentoring for students’ well-being

Being a provider of education, giving students a sense of normalcy and togetherness is the utmost priority in times like now. From virtual classroom to digital mentor-mentee sessions, nearly every student activity has been transitioned online so that students don’t miss anything, instead they make most of the New Normal MBA opportunities. 

Engaging with Alumni to Plan the Time Ahead

FIIB Alumni Cell introduced FIIB&YOU 2.0, an initiative to plan for the future with the extended community of FIIB aka Alumni. As FIIB community recently celebrated the 25 years anniversary, we used the occasion to strike meaningful conversations about planning for the future through Racers Cafe, the Alumni Advisory Committee, taking this as the right time to get connected, share ideas, and actively plan for continuing to deliver excellence in the next 25 years. 

Encouraging Research Amid Humanitarian Crisis 
FIIB Business Review initiated a dialogue between management practitioners, researchers and academicians in trying to find a way to address the current situation and help the management education fraternity to come up with solutions through the International Digital Conference-Editors Meet held on 2nd June 2020. The event was open to academicians, publishers, industry practitioners and early and advanced stage scholars. More than 300 participants from 18 countries participated in the meet which was a rich and engaging discussion for over 3 hours. Check out the entire Editor’s Digital Meet here.
