Q: What is the impact of COVID 19 on your institutions? What steps have you taken like cancelling/postponing Convocation...?
A: Once lockdown was announced, we firstly ensured that our students could travel back home safely. All regular classes continued online as per schedule through Impartus software. All exams were also shifted to open book online mode. We were able to ensure continuity of learning through this difficult period with the hard work of our faculty and staff members and a robust IT infrastructure. At the moment, we are making mark sheets and provisional degrees available to students online. We have kept the Convocation on hold for the moment. We will consider having a remote Convocation if lockdown continues. 

Q: Have you made modifications in your Admission 2020 Process?
A: Yes, we have shifted interviews to online mode. But, the rigour of the interviews in being maintained even in this time. 

Q: Regarding MBA Commencement 2020, is it likely to be delayed by some time?
A: We are hopeful that the situation will improve and that we should be able to start induction and classes in last week of June or first week on July. However, we are fully prepared to shift classes online in the unlikely event that the situation continues to remain the same till July. 

Q: Have you or will you make modifications in your current academic program by including more online classes…
A: We are having synchronous classes with active interaction of students and faculty. The pedagogy remains similar to a regular class. We have further strengthened our student mentoring processes, which is also happening online so that students can have a support group in these difficult and uncertain times. 

Q: What impact will this have on Placements 2020?  
A: More than 90% of our batch had been already placed before the lockdown was imposed. For remaining students, many companies have also shifted their selection process online. We are confident of achieving close to 100% placement within next 30 days. Many students have already joined their organisations and are working from home. For those that are still to join, we are closely in touch with them and their organisations to ensure a smooth joining process post the lockdown period. 

Q: What is your message to MBA aspirants…How can they prepare better for an uncertain future...
A: “When fishermen cannot go to sea, they repair their nets”. These difficult times are an opportunity to focus on self-development and education. We as humans and fundamentally resilient and however difficult this crisis looks at present, I am confident that we will overcome it. As the economy recovers and changes over the next couple of years, we need to ensure that we are in a position to contribute and take advantage of a bounce back, when it comes. I believe an MBA from a high-quality institution over the next of couple of years will provide this preparation. 

Indeed, from the above interview it is clear that Jaipuria Institute of Management has taken many proactive steps to ensure that student-learning doesn’t suffer in these uncertain times, and Placements and Admission process continues smoothly.
