Red and Green signified availability and non availability whereas Amber asked for time to think and Black depicted a mischievous existence.
Students Posing For The Spotlight Theme
The décor suited the theme. A freshly led outroad with traffic signals and imprinted signs cautioning pedestrians of curves and bumps ahead! The SBS plaza was looking class & beautiful with dazzling lights and the trendy balloons added glitters to the overall adornment. The evening started with couples making a ramp walk on the red carpet heading towards a glam photo shoot.

Dancing To The Beats Of Fusion 
The plaza wore the mysterious black and the darkness removed by brilliant bursts of high tech lighting. From red Armanis to green Valentinos, the freshers had it all on. At any given time, there were a minimum of 500 on the floor dancing to the beat of DJ Shilen. The music and the lighting were the charm of the evening as the beats compelled everyone to come on the dance floor. Lungi Dance, Dhating Naach and Badtameez Dil rocked the top charts and students danced their heart out to its remixes. Also the fusion songs were a hit amongst the students.

Blood Donation Camp At SBS

“The measure of life is not its duration, but its donation.”- Peter Marshall

If you’re a blood donor, you’re a hero to someone, somewhere, who received your gracious gift of life. The finest gesture one can make to save life is by donating blood. The blood’s main components- Red Cells, Plasma and Platelets are vital for many different uses like treatments for cancer and blood diseases, anaemia and in surgeries for transplants and burns. Plasma provides proteins, nutrients and a clotting agent that is vital to stop bleeding. Platelets are tiny cells used to help patients at a high risk of bleeding.

Blood Donation At SBS
Shri BrijMohan Chiripal, the Managing Director of the Chiripal Industries on the occasion of his birthday practices a tradition for Blood Donation for its employees. Every year, all the employees celebrate his birthday week by donating blood voluntarily.  The blood donation camp is carried across at all the business premises of the Chiripal group which includes the textile, education, real estate and other entities.
Volunteers received complimentary gifts for their contribution
On 12th of July , 2014 – the blood donation camp was organized at Shanti Asiatic School (SAS) premises in association with Shanti Business School(SBS). The camp had an active participation from the students, faculties and other team members of SBS & SAS and also from the neighboring areas. The blood donation camp was carried out by Chiripal Group with the help of Red Cross Foundation.
' Pride Frame ' - Inspired  many to donate
The camp had a very strong promotional campaign which resulted in a huge success in terms of donors. The camp had all kinds of donors-from the first time donors to people who have donated more than 20 times. The students of Shanti Business School played a major role in spreading awareness about the camp in neighboring areas and on social media.  Also the students came up with the concept of  ‘Pride Frames’ for the volunteers who donated blood. ‘Pride Frame’ was a small initiative to make the donors proud of their contribution towards the society and also spread the word for more awareness on the camp day.
Donors were highly appreciated by the Chiripal Charitable Trust and were given volunteer certificates for their noble contribution. It was a day of joy and celebrations for Shanti Business School & Shanti Asiatic School as they went home with heads high with their pride contributions.

Can your creativity make a fortune in Media & Entertainment

Media and entertainment industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the Indian market at present. Several factors influencing the high growth rate of this industry are the privatization and expansion of broadcasting channels, liberalization plans of the government, digital arrangement for film making and distribution and many more.

The Indian Media and Entertainment Industry (M&E) is a vibrant industry & has had a tremendous impact on the lives and the Indian Economy. The industry informs the country through entertainment & has been a catalyst for the growth of the large parts of the Indian economy. In 2013, the Indian Media & Entertainment Industry (M&E) registered a growth of 11.8 percent over 2012 and touched INR 918 billion (Source : FICCI-KPMG Report 2014). At the same time, the industry began to see some benefits from the digitization of media products and services and growth in regional media. This drives demand for various products and services. The media plays a significant role in our lives today and is all pervasive with touch points ranging from television to newspaper to films to radio to outdoor properties. With the addition of new media such as social networking services, animation and VFX, online gaming and applications running on mobile devices, a new dimension has been added to the world of media that was dominated by traditional media. In addition to their implicit impact, all media platforms provide a great opportunity to carry explicit messages to create social impact.

A study by PricewaterhouseCoopers asserts that the media and entertainment sector outlines a 35,000-crore trade in India and it is expected to grow over the next few years at the rate of about 19 per cent. It is also been stated that there has been a vast investment in the media sector in current times and it incorporated investment in the infrastructural services including broadband internet connectivity, home cable television, digital cinema as well as movie theater complexes. Indian media industry’s different sections - film, television, advertising, music and radio industry has witnessed a remarkable growth in last few years. From the era of black and white movies now it has reached to a level of high definition movies and broadcasting.

Businesses are successful because their products, neatly designed and attractively packaged, are ably aided by effective communication. The communication may be through various means and media and the packaging may be mind mindbogglingly complex at times, but all of these work hand in hand to give the product an edge over its competition in the market.

Most MBA aspirants do not look beyond a traditional MBA programme. They do not know that there may be a better programme more suited to their creative bent of mind and better meeting industry requirements. All the institutes put together providing Communication as specialization don’t even cater 1% of the career opportunities in Media industry. As a result there is a huge demand-supply gap that needs to be fulfilled. Traditionally, a regular MBA program focuses more on business related subjects and specializations. However, with increasing competition, Industry is also demanding domain specific specialization.

There are innumerable job opportunities in these sectors that are opening up. Presently, media industry has reached a level where it has been creating jobs for many people. It is considered as one of the most glamorous and lucrative career options. This field offers challenges and opportunity to work in odd situations which attracts those who do not want to make a career in conventional fields. The rise of the print media, the TV and broadcasting systems moreover led to the conception of the online media platform. Thus, choices for media jobs got better enormously. This consecutively has created newer and superior job prospects for the young media professionals in the nation. According to another report by speak, in the month of April 2013, jobs in the Marketing & Advertising, showed a double growth reaching to 10,07,000 of job as compared to 4,95,000 of the same month last year.(Source: NaukriJobSpeak)

The phased progress in digitization has been the stepping stone for the industry’s growth and success, thereby bringing about a paradigm shift in key indicators, particularly within the domains of TV and film sectors. In terms of print media, the rise in literacy rates, significant population growth, resilience in agrarian economy, the rise in incomes in smaller towns and the entry of big players in regional markets is likely to drive future expansion of regional circulation and readership across India.

One can expect to get in to Branding, Corporate Communication, Marketing and Advertising, Radio Planning and Communication, Journalism and Mass Communication, Media Data Analytics, Event Management and Digital Media Marketing after pursuing Communication Management Programme.

Therefore, if you have a flair for writing, advertising, branding, events, reporting, journalism and media management, communication management is the ideal option and will promise one of the most promising futures.

SBS Cup Cage Football Tournament

When one talks about cage football, the first images that comes to one's mind is that of the famous Nike ad where the likes of Francesco Totti, Luis Figo, Cristiano Ronaldo, Roberto Carlos play against each other in a secret tournament hosted by Manchester United legend Eric Cantona in a moving ship. The Secret tournament (also known as Scorpion KO) was a Nike Campaign, which featured 24 - contemporary football players and Eric Cantona as the Tournament Referee. The concept was a fictional tournament involving eight teams of three of football’s top players in a first-goal-wins elimination.. The matches were staged in an enclosed pitch on a ship. This was a very unique concept which took the world by storm and the breathtaking skills by the legends of world football that made the campaign an overnight favorite.

SBS Cup Cage 2013
The Ahmedabad youth is all set & geared up for a cage football tournament where the stars will be the local footballers. The SBS Cup Cage football tournament consists of various Champions titles for different age groups with popular championship titles as Under 14, Under 16, Under 19, Open group and Corporate. The Cage10 had a super success at Shanti Business School last year in June 2013 and the previous year in June 2012 with hundreds of footballers across the cities of Gujarat participating every year..

Shanti Business School is the pioneer in bringing the cage football concept to Gujarat. Along with providing venues and basic amenities for the tournament, Shanti Business School also helps in promoting this sport in the western region. The Cage10 football tournament is organized by Kickoff India and is partnered by Shanti Business School for the Gujarat zone. Kickoff India is currently India’s premier football website and provides exclusive content only about Indian football. 

Founded on 1st February 2010, Kickoff India’s content includes news, features, players blogs, and author’s columns. The website also includes the indepth statistics of India’s premier football tournament i.e. I- League. Kickoff India has a thriving user community and the numbers are double folding every month. Kickoff India is the only website dedicated to Indian football (

Shanti Business School has been an active partner in organizing the SBS Cup Cage10 since the last two years. SBS has helped in bringing a revolutionary change in the football scenario in Ahmedabad by bringing all the football enthusiasts on a single platform and making them compete in a closed cage. “It will be the T20 of football,” Abhishek Singh, the organizer of SBS Cup Cage10 said, adding, “Imagine ten people playing non-stop football for 20 minutes (each half ten minutes). With no corners and no offside it would be a treat to watch with action packed in every second of it.”
The Concept:
  • Its a shorter version of football played inside a cage and with 5 players on each side. The trend which is already very popular in cities like Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore has reached Ahmedabad.
  • Each Team consists of 5 players and 3 substitutes.
  • Each half is of ten minutes with a five minute break.
  • There is no outside or corner in this game, the cage ensures that the game continues without a hault, unless someone gets injured, the referee calls for a half time, in case of a foul or a goal is struck.
  • The cage Dimensions are 30*17*3 meters.

Industrial Visit for BBA Students

In the new era of practical exposure, Industry visit forms a vital part of the curriculum for a better understanding of corporate world. It bridges the gap between the classroom knowledge and the real time working world. These industry visits also provides clear picture of the organizational structures and modes of operation in different industries. Reading in books about industries might be dull & boring as hell but once you go through its actual operations and understand the dynamics involved, you actually realize how compelling and important its existence is.

At SBS, we got an amazing opportunity to visit Nandan Exim Pvt. Ltd. & Chiripal Textile Industries, which are the top leading textile industries in India.The whole experience was a package of learning and practical comprehension.

Students of Shanti Business School at Chiripal Textile  Industries.
We always love to shop for denims but ever wondered how a denim is prepared and what is the entire cycle from raw material to the final denim jeans Obviously No, because most of the students never get an opportunity to understand the business processes. At Shanti Business School, we got this tremendous opportunity to see how big thread ball end up in different jean fabric.
 Cotton threads  being converted to jeans fabric.
We all were curious to see the big bundles of cotton and thread lying in the room and wondered how these things got fabricated into denim cloth.
Fabric Preparation.
It was a visual delight to see the conversion of cotton bundles to threads and then into denim fabric. The processes were really fascinating to observe and the transitions were really fast carried out with ease and perfection. The students were enjoying as they were able to see the practical applications of their subject areas like operations management , supply chain management and logistics management in real time situations.
Fabric being washed. 
The office staff of the Chiripal Industries was really supportive & informative as they guided us through various machines and its working through the processes.

It was indeed a really good learning experience as we could completely relate what we had learned in classrooms in the form of case studies to the actual work scenario in industries.Students, who are always fond of denim wear, were in amaze to see the entire assembly line production of denim clothes from the purchase of raw material till the dispatch of final product.The visit also included a session at Chiripal industry demonstrating the production of the polyester thread which plays a major role in denim manufacturing. We would have never learnt this from books even after mugging up for hours and days. I am glad to be a part of Shanti Business School for providing us an amazing platform where we see, observe and learn practically.

In all, students enjoyed the joyful visit to the industry which was highly resourceful in understanding various domains of Business Management from manufacturing till sales.

Anveshana- Guest Session By Ritam Bhatnagar

The Concept
Anveshana, an initiative by the students of Shanti Communication School to inspire the youth to follow their dreams and trust their instincts. It signifies the true joy of success and the zeal to reach out for it. Anveshana sessions will have young achievers sharing their life experiences, success stories and their journey of accomplishments of their goals. True to its meaning, Anveshana inspires the youth to search for their inner self, getting through their desires and work hard for their choicest dreams. Anveshana will create a whole chain of inspiration and directed motivation from the achievers of various fields to the seekers in various fields, making the youth understand the satisfying streak between a career and a job. Anveshana will become a platform where the students can interact with the young achiever & can get inspired by listening to the story of their inspirational icon.
