Young graduates of any stream
It was a challenge to create an integrated management institute that does consulting and research, rather than just focussing on teaching. It was a challenge for the institute to bring technical soundness to the students. The varied educational background of the students leads to its own set of challenges, but this too is also being overcome through implementation of better education and management techniques.
Creating Young Entrepreneurs
The Manjula K Ponda College of Business and Management was created with the purpose of reigniting the spirit of an entrepreneur in students. Right from its inception they propagated entrepreneurship as a career option and projected themselves as a no placement college. The College recognises the need for aligning itself globally and build on the brand equity, which is based on processes.
To create occupation for the under privileged class and bring them into the mainstream
• Succeeded in changing the mindsets of the youth and parents
• Meritorious achievements of our last three batches have done us proud.
The toughest challenge is to make people get rid of their traditional modes of thinking and complete their studies so that they can become eligible for a good job. So educationists must also focus on changing the mindsets of today’s parents.
We have to work hard to make people have faith in the modern education system. The idea has to be germinated in every mind that it is everyone’s responsibility to get educated so that they can perform better service for the nation. Accomplishing such lofty goals is a challenge, but we are doing our best to overcome them.

Students and faculties
Changes from manual system to new electronic system cannot be an overnight journey. It took months to make people understand the value of the system and start using the system. The stakeholders became convinced about the efficiency of the new system only after we organised many workshops, which were devoted to showcasing the powers of technology. It was also a challenge to regularly update our Moodle courses, because of the fact that everyone is not tech savvy and hence might not like uploading files on a regular basis. We have developed many easy to access solutions to further popularise our solution.

Students from 11th standard and 12th standard
It was a challenge to sell the programme to the parents and the students. It is especially difficult as the students are located at a crucial juncture of their life when they are in 11th or 12th standard. We also needed to provide the management framework in such a way that the 11th standard students should be able to understand it. There had to be proper learning atmosphere, where there are no evaluations. Only by following this kind of strategy we could ensure full attendance. Generating enough interest in the minds of the students for this programme was also a challenge.
