Student Clubs

 The Geopolitical and Economics club

GEOCON, the youngest club of SIBM-Bengaluru, aims at creating awareness about Geopolitical and Macroeconomic events around the world. Business students need to understand how geopolitical events affect companies, whatever their location, industry, or size while devising strategies. 

By capturing the global economic outline, we are creating an ecosystem of holistic learning such that students have a 360-degree view on a particular topic.  

The club releases bi-weekly Infographics, that includes crisp analysis of global and macroeconomic issues, to help students better understand the current global scenarios.

The club also conducts monthly interactive sessions to enable students to develop an in-depth understanding of diverse global affairs.

GEOCON believes that being involved in the megatrends which are affecting civil society around the world will make the students relevant to the corporates. 

The goal of the club can be summarized in 3 words: 

Educate. Enlighten. Evolve.

Hippocampus – The Creatives Club of SIBM Bengaluru

When the stage is set, all one sees is the grandeur and opulence on display. Very often, one doesn’t notice or fully understand the effort that goes behind setting the stage. When one looks back and remembers an event, alongside the memories, one remembers the steady splash of colours that was around. Visual imagery is a strong sense of nostalgia and Hippocampus promotes that experience.

Hippocampus, the creatives club of SIBM Bengaluru works tirelessly, behind the scenes, all year long and uses its expertise to make banners, posters, ID cards, merchandise, digital marketing templates, certificates, display models, stage-decor and on-day photography and video shooting. The members of Hippocampus Club are inducted and trained in various photo and video editing software, origami, painting, drawing, photography and video making.

The creative minds of Hippocampus Club work relentlessly with the institute’s administration, various clubs and committees to make every event of SIBM Bengaluru a grand success.  The members of Hippocampus thus become default volunteers for events as grand as TEDxSIBMBengaluru.

For the upcoming year, Hippocampus is planning to widen its horizons with respect to the responsibilities undertaken and also to work towards branding SIBM Bengaluru in a bigger and better manner.

Opsession – The Operations Club of SIBM B

Opsession will focus on making students aware about the practices followed in Operations management and other functions related to it from an Indian industry perspective

When we watch a movie on the big screen, often, we make the mistake of attributing the entire credit to the lead actors. Glitz, glamour and visibility work to their advantage. But behind every great movie, there was a team that worked backstage to make it wonderful.

In many ways, the Operations function is also similar. While you might not hear of us or see us very often, we are omnipresent and almost indispensable. We observe, we document, we validate, we streamline, we standardise and we add value. And, no, we don’t stop there.

Kaizen. Continuous improvement. World – class standards don’t deter us, we better our past bests. We find it hugely stimulating to work in trenches, to enable and to add value, making sure that each area of the organisation functions the way it should. Operations by itself, in several ways, is the purest form of management. And at Opsession, we share a deep seated love for the subject and the function.

We aim to share, to learn, to rediscover and to employ Kaizen in its truest form.

PRISyM – The Marketing Club

It focuses on empowering SIBM-B students to be the most innovative and effective marketers in the industry. Our aim is to serve as an aid to those interested in careers in marketing and to provide them with the tools to be premiere candidates beyond the classroom.

Saaz – The Music Club

The music club at SIBM-Bengaluru aims to provide a platform for students to showcase their musical talent on a continual basis.

We believe that it is essential to nurture the innate musical talent in everyone. This not only acts as a diversion from the busy professional schedules, but also inspires one to perform well in all aspects of life by serving as a morale booster.

The music club at SIBM-B has held jam sessions in the form of live karaoke wherein talented instrumentalists within college, come together and accompany singers. It also creates a light and elevating environment on campus that the audience can enjoy.

In the future, we aim at holding many such events. We also hope to provide a space for musicians aspiring to participate in inter-college competitions, to practice and perfect their skill.

Though in its initial year of inception, we hope that the music club at SIBM-B will hit high notes very soon!
