“Nothing ever becomes real till it is experienced”- John Keats

Industrial visit is a part of the educational tour as well as professional course, during which students visit companies and get insight of on the internal working environment of the company.It provides students with an opportunity to learn practically through interaction, working methods and employment practices. Moreover, it gives exposure from an academic point of view. Industry visits sensitize students to the practical challenges that organizations face in the business world. Industrial visits also give greater clarity about various management concepts for students as they can practically see how these concepts are put into action.By visiting the shop floor they get to understand the risky conditions in which workers work, the people management challenges involved in managing workers apart from getting hands-on technical knowledge.

KEY BENEFITS TO STUDENTS

The student involvement at all stages of the industry visit motivates them and helps them take full advantage of all learning opportunities presented. This brings a different dimension to students’ learning, which they cannot gain in the classroom as well as helping to bridge the gap between industry and academia.

  • Exposure to better industrial and business practices in progressive economies.
  • Get to know  business skills in a global context encouraging cultural interaction
  • Visits to manufacturing firms are useful for students to understand the nuances and realities of the shop floor, which in itself is a rare exposure.

Every year Surya World organizes industrial visits of students for enhancing their knowledge regarding different kind of fields. It provides confidence as well as overall personality development to the students. An industrial visit was recently organized by Surya School of Business Management, for the students of MBA, BBA and B.Com to Kudos Chemie Ltd.(Manufacturer of Caffeine Theophylline and other Chemicals), Derabassi. The students learnt about the production and operations management in Kudos Chemie Ltd. The company also has their own school for the village children and the socially suppressed backward caste people, arranged medical camps, blood donation camp etc, which enlighten their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

Internet marketing, also referred to as i- marketing, online-marketing, e- marketing, can be defined as the marketing of products or services over the Internet.  The Internet has brought media to a worldwide audience. . Internet marketing is sometimes considered to have a broader scope because it not only refers to the Internet, e-mail, and wireless media; however it includes management of digital customer data.

Advertising through the internet helps to build relationships between consumers and brands. Internet marketing is closely related to various concepts like e-commerce, where products are sold to consumers without any intermediary. It is very a useful means for the companies to advertise their products and services online. The targeted people in a particular country or state can easily surf their likings or their intrest regarding a particular product. Auctions through internet have come up as a fruitful business. Some such auction sites are eBay, OnlineAuction, eBid, ePier etc. Almost all the products that we buy at  brick and mortar stores are easily available and being sold on  various web sites where  people can shop like Myntra.com, Snapdeal.com, Jabong.com etc.

Internet marketing ties the creative and technical aspects of the internet, together with designing and development of the product and sales. Internet marketing and online advertising efforts are usually used in combination with traditional types of advertising like radio, television, newspapers and magazines.

Online marketing requires stressing on different strategies which ultimately help an association to get success. Click here to know more about internet marketing.
