Student Committees and Clubs
The development of skills amongst students is an important component of the Institute’s mission and objectives. In Great Lakes, opportunities for these are provided through various clubs and committees that are in operation. The manner in which they successfully organize the various co- curricular activities is a proof of their skills at teamwork and leadership. The areas of Finance, Human Resources Development, Analytics, Quantitative Methods, and Marketing have their own committees and activities facilitating skills in these areas. However, the totality of experience in handling the various committees affords great opportunities to hone skills across the board.
The Student committees and clubs at GL are responsible for various activities. The committees work under the guidance of faculty members but are largely student run. They take up activities related to conferences, symposiums, college fests, placements, mess, blogs, publications, social work, student welfare, and branding. By participating in such committees, students get opportunities to interact with alumni and industry experts. By participating in the activities of the committees, students get opportunities for leadership, initiative, team work, and liaison. While these activities are optional, the students are encouraged to participate in at least one Committee or Club.
Students play an important role in supporting key functions of the Institute including admissions, placements, web management, and branding. Each committee has a faculty member who acts as a mentor or guide. In some committees the students play a support role and take full initiative and charge on ground when an event is on. In other instances, the students participate deeply in the conceiving, planning, and executing of programs from day one. Following are the general thrust and outline of the various committees and clubs that are active at Great Lakes:
