Garden City College of Science and Management Studies enters into a strategic alliance with Shiv Khera Institute of Leadership and Management (SKILM), a brainchild of Mr. Shiv Khera, to offer its students the leadership programme from the latter institute. Under this arrangement, SKILM will offer its flagship leadership programme under the aegis of SHIV KHERA CENTRE FOR LEADERSHIP EXCELLENCE to the management students of GCC, pursuing Post Graduate programs with special emphasis on MBA.

Objective: ‘To Prepare Graduates to succeed in the Business/Corporate World’

Mission: To create Leaders who can manage, not Managers who cannot lead. – ‘Shiv Khera’

Mr. Shiv Khera, founder of Qualified Learning Systems USA, author of 14 books including International Bestseller YOU CAN WIN, has been conducting the leadership programs for over three decades in over 20 countries.

Basis the NASSCOM study, which says that 90% of graduates are unemployable, there is a dilemma that graduates carrying degree/qualification, when they do not get a job, are disappointed, whereas, the employers are not able to find good people to work. To bridge the gap Mr. Shiv Khera decided to come up with a unique leadership program with the belief that if we prepare our students well, we will not have to repair them later in the corporate world. His contention is that one needs more than professional qualifications to become a professional.

The program being offered by SKILM is not a run of the mill personality development program. It is a comprehensive Leadership and Character building program.

Dr Joseph V.G, Chairman of the Garden City Group of Institutions, felt the need to give value addition to its students not only to become managers but great leaders which positions them uniquely with corporate. “We create leaders for tomorrow at GCC” – Dr Joseph V.G. Considering Dr Joseph’s desire to build future leaders in India, Mr. Shiv Khera decided to go along with GCC.

Chairman Dr. Joseph added that this leadership programme will empower students to Lead Successfully, Communicate Effectively and Manage Professionally based on Values and Ethics.

Graduates shall receive Certification SKILM for Leadership Excellence along with their Post Graduate degree offered by Garden City College of Science and Management Studies. GCC is the first institution in Bangalore to sign up with SKILM for offering its leadership Programme to management students.

This programme will be extended and offered to select undergraduate students of GCC in the near future.

Garden City Group of institutions founded by Chairman Dr Joseph V.G in 1992 has carved a niche for itself in the education map of India with students from across the length and breadth of the nation and over 77 countries worldwide.  The MBA program offered by GCC is one of the most sought after program recognized by AICTE and has excellent placement records. Garden City College that has been reaccredited with A Grade by National Assessment and Accreditation Council – a body of UGC, would become a University soon called the Garden City University that embarks on its journey of creating leaders and entrepreneurs and the strategic alliance with Shiv Khera is just a beginning.
