Prof. Charanpreet Singh. Praxis Business School was set-up in 2007 in Kolkata by a group of like-minded industry practitioners with high academic pedigree. Praxis is driven by the purpose of creating resources that will lead India’s transformation in the digital world. These leaders will be value-driven, will embrace diversity, will be tech and data-savvy, will communicate effectively, and will have the agility to respond skilfully to the rapidly changing global environment.

We achieve this by empowering students with the knowledge, skills, analytical ability, and management perspectives needed to provide leadership to business enterprises in a world that is becoming increasingly digital and fiercely competitive. Students engage in learning the fundamentals of business and their application in the real world, and the skills to apply analytical tools for intelligent decision-making.

Praxis provides an environment that is conducive to learning and growing as individuals. We give you the freedom to think, question, discuss, debate, absorb, experiment – learn by doing and learn without fear. This requires faculty members with the pedigree and maturity to facilitate debate and accommodate disagreement. We teach our students how to think, not what to think. Eventually we create better learners. This is our intent, and I think we are honest in our intent.

Careers360. Tell us something about the admission process?

Prof. Charanpreet Singh. Praxis has a three-step recruitment process. Aspirants can apply online and Praxis shortlists applications on the basis of academic profile, industry experience (if any), admission test (CAT, CMAT, XAT, MAT) scores, extra-curricular activities. Shortlisted candidates need to write an essay on a given topic. The personal interview, which lasts between 25 – 30 min, seeks to understand the fitness of the candidate for a PGDM programme, her/ his willingness and ability to learn, and standards of ethical behavior.

Careers360. What kind of infrastructure can students expect at the institute? Please elaborate?

Prof. Charanpreet Singh. Praxis has taken great care to create an environment that enables and encourages learning. The campus has well-designed informal spaces, as we believe that learning takes place as much in informal areas as in formal classrooms. The formal learning spaces are state-of-the-art lecture-theatres powered with the latest audio-visual aids. The ecological and technological aspects have been emphasized by designing an eco-friendly, wi-fi enabled smart campus. The campus has two academic buildings, spaces for both indoor and outdoor sport and beautifully designed informal spaces around a waterbody. Praxis is a ‘green’ campus with solar panels for generating electricity, groundwater recharge system, tree-plantation and green building initiatives.

Careers360. There is a lot of stress that is being made with regard to interaction with the industry as well as companies that recruit. What are the steps being taken by the institute in this direction?

Prof. Charanpreet Singh. Praxis was established by a group of people with an average industry experience of close to 20 years, therefore industry proximity is part of the DNA of the institute. Industry collaborates in a number of ways and at multiple levels with Praxis:

  1. We have a Board of Governors which comprises top industry practitioners who provide high-level guidance and direction to Praxis.

  2. Enterprises collaborate with Praxis to design the program curriculum and keep it relevant and contemporary. This has enabled Praxis to pioneer the offering of content in areas like business analytics, data science, digital business management, consumer insights and market intelligence.

  3. Industry professionals design and deliver courses at Praxis – as visiting and adjunct professors – enabling an intense interaction between them and the student community.

  4. Praxis runs a Distinguished Speaker Series for its student community, wherein senior industry leaders from across the globe deliver sessions on a variety of subjects. These sessions are conducted both in-class and in online mode and provide an opportunity to students to get insights into the real world of business.

  5. We are fortunate to have a loyal and ever-growing recruiter community. Ours is a symbiotic relationship – our recruiters get resources equipped with the skills they seek; we are able to find exciting placement opportunities for our student community. Recruiter feedback forms an important component for continual updating of our curriculum.

Careers360. Internships are now mandatory as per AICTE guidelines. Does the institute help students with this? If yes, how?

Prof. Charanpreet Singh. Praxis ensures that every student is provided with an internship from the institute itself and students do not have to seek internships outside. This also helps in the PPO conversions (which is currently at about 20% of the batch). Praxis has a structured internship-placement process in place. This includes preparing the students for GD’s, Aptitude Tests and interviews. PlaceCom - the student-run placements committee - conducts JD and role discussions.

We have a student mentorship program in place - where senior batch students have become mentors to a group of students from the junior batch. Under this the senior students help their mentees with role understanding, preparing for interviews and research about the organizations. This has helped boost the internship selection ratio immensely.
