Firebird is an International Business School based in Coimbatore and is the brainchild of Shiva Texyarn Ltd & Bannari Amman Spinning mills Ltd which makes a turnover of Rs.2000 crore. For the group, Education is passion ! Sculpting a student’s life and moulding them to be industry ready is the motto.
We are a unique business school trying to bring visibility for the students from the classroom to corporate practices. In this regard, we have an industryready tailor made curriculum with Personality Enhancement Program and Action Learning Program intertwined into the academic. We are a stand alone, AICTE, Govt. of INDIA, approved Business School in Coimbatore having an award winning campus.
As an Industry supported B-School, we have few programs to bridge the gap between UG industry and PG industry practices. Towards this, we are organizing one day National Level FDP on “Action Learning Agility through Case Study Methodology” for Undergraduates and a few selected Postgraduate professors to encourage them to use Action Learning and Case Methodologies in teaching their students and also to connect them to corporate practices.
As per New Education Policy and the global industry norms, the degree courses are going to be four years where Action and Experiential Learning is important. This change will demand UG Faculty members to have a strong network in the industry, addressing interdisciplinary electives and project work competencies. All the above requires activity based learning, a Case study method of teaching to fill the gap and enrich the overall four year degree programmes.
Some of the important areas which will be focused in the FDP are from the model curriculum of AICTE recommendations, such as smart skill sets of communication, entrepreneurial mindset, industry collaborative efforts, integration of multi disciplinary electives and technology adoption.
The teaching and learning is holistic value creation process where in the participants need to remember and understand large complex issues. While understanding the issues, the learned principles need to be applied and analyzed to evaluate the best alternative options to create a value and productive based learning.
The program has been designed to create a platform where National and International level Directors, Deans and industry Leaders will share their rich knowledge to facilitate the pedagogy of Action Learning Program to produce industry ready and deployable manpower.
The program would start with an inaugural function and panel discussions followed by specialization area of action learning & case study programs. The best three participants of each specialization will be awarded with gold, silver, bronze mementos and certificates for all participants at the valedictory function by most eminent personalities of education & corporate world.
