Knowledge through Practical Exposure

Tanvir Omar.

WHEN learning is limited to books, it can only open eyes to an extent, where as combining books and practical observation not only opens eyes, but sends signals to the brain to restore information and recollect when necessary and give order to other organs to react accordingly. Thus, learning with practical experience widens the horizon of knowledge and give students appropriate exposure to corporate culture. East West MBA club engraves this concept to its vision.

Throughout this field EWU MBA students got exposed to the operational process of the DBL group. The programme was formally inaugurated by Sr. HR Manager, DBL group. He revealed the company's background, business structure, processes and policies through a power point presentation. Throughout the presentation, students learnt how effectively DBL group has combined backward and forward linkage. DBL's commitment towards its employees was revealed through this presentation. Later, operational managers lead the students to different sections of the company starting from thread preparation to packaging section.

After lunch, the MBA club arranged a session for the newcomers. All the newcomers revealed their background and their interests and talents. Some sang, some said jokes and some did a bit of acting. After voting, five students were given prizes. The session was made more appeasing by the presence of the EWU MBA coordinator, Dr. Nazrul Islam.
