The Corporate Relationship Program (CRP) has always been an intrinsic part of Globsyn Business School (GBS) and seeks to construct alliances that resonate with the industry, the business school and the student community.

Management education being an academic programme geared towards making individuals employable in corporate positions across the industry, most b-schools prioritize the issue of Campus Placements for its students. What makes GBS different from other management institutions is the perspective from which Placement for a student is looked at. For GBS considers Placement not to be an event that occurs once at the end of a student's two-year stint, but a process of continuous interactions between the b-school and the industry culminating in recruitment. At GBS, these interfaces with the industry are enabled and executed through the Corporate Relationship Program.
The CRP engages with the industry through three discrete channels:
- Corporate Connect
- Campus to Corporate
- Management Apprenticeship Programme
Globsyn Business School Corporate Engagement Model
Through 'Corporate Connect', CRP engages veterans of the industry in various domains to develop and design class-room deliverable content that familiarizes students with work-place skills required to chart out careers in the sector of their choice. Interactions with industry-experts reinforces through practical demonstrations the theoretical learning delivered in the conventional mode by academia. The 'Corporate Connect' Program thus becomes a concretization of Globsyn's philosophy of 'EduSkills' - an amalgamation of education and skills.
By developing on the concept of 'EduSkills' further, Globsyn has given shape to the 'Campus to Corporate' program, whereby, through a formal framework of structured interaction with a specific organization, GBS students go through the professionally enriching experience of internship with that company, provided they are able to clear the rigorous assessment at the end of the module. In the recent past, GBS students were provided with this opportunity to gain workplace learning at Vodafone and PriceWaterhouse Cooper through the 'Campus to Corporate' program.
The 'Management Apprenticeship Programme' (MAP), provides GBS students with a chance to work with renowned companies as an apprentice for a year which is preceded by a year-long management coursework designed and delivered by the experts from the company together with academicians. MAP is a unique programme in that the industry collaborates with academia to shape management students as individuals who are industry-ready by the time they graduate.
