We believe it is not easy to identify the roots behinds the way an individual's personality is shaped, and we also believe that real personality development cannot happen unless we touch the roots or the core of someone's personality. So we focus on understanding the good points or strengths of an individual's personality and try to mould those traits to become stronger. This enhancement of strengths goes a long way in removing the fears that the individual's weaknesses might have brought in earlier.
In the short time that we spend with a student, we understand that we cannot develop what may not exist. Hence we focus our efforts in enhancing the best that we see exists. Thus we call this educational service a Personality Enhancement Program.
Students also cover management topics related to Finance, Economics, Marketing, Consumer Behaviour, Investment Banking, M&A and many others.
Most professional courses' entrance exams test students on aptitude and reasoning. Since the medium of communication in international business is still mostly English, it is imperative that one has a strong foundation in this foreign language as well. BARE modules were thus created to enable student to strengthen their basic aptitude, reasoning and English skills. Our training modules involve dynamic classroom sessions where the motto is participation. The more a student gets involved in the modules and exchange of ideas, the more he or she learns.
Why Basic and not Advanced?
BARE modules have a large portion based on the course content of school Maths and English upto class 10th. A small portion is from what is covered beyond that. The school content of maths and science is what makes our base. If the base is strong, the tower is strong. This foundation helps a student not just in understanding math and science subjects (including engineering) better, but also in entrance exams like CLAT, IPM, CAT, GMAT, GRE, Banking, etc. The advanced learning on aptitude, reasoning and English happens when one prepares for these entrance tests.
Is it necessary for English medium school students?
This is one question we get most times from parents. Well, the answer is yes. Most of the time we talk or write, we assume that we are using strict British English structures. It's not so. Most of us are heavily influenced by American English because our major exposure to English is through Hollywood movies or Sitcoms. How many Guy Ritchie movies or Shakespearean plays do we watch? Add to that the corrosive effect of texting language that throws grammar, spellings and structures into the bin. But most tests, even American tests, test you on British English. So it becomes very important to understand the difference between the language we hear in movies, the language we speak among friends and the language we are supposed to write in exams.
Is it just about Maths and English?
Well, it is about Maths and English, but it is about much more as well. It is primarily about aptitude, reasoning, understanding and approach. It is more about critical thinking. It is more about holistic view of things and situations based on multiple variables that may impact the outcome of any possible solution to a problem. We also teach economics to students covering fundamental aspects of demand, supply, inflation, banking, fiscal and monetary policy making, etc.
We have included in our course content a lot about Odisha, its ancient trade and culture, its leaders and its people. We use these content to educate students about the glory of Odisha (which may not be a part of their school books) and give them a fundamental understanding on the science of reading at the same time. The techniques taught become an integral part of the way a student approaches any reading from then on. In layman terms, one moves from passive reading to active reading. This is very important as reading comprehension is an important part of any entrance test today.
What about writing?
We basically start out modules with writing sessions. It is not the essay writing that students are used to, but more of critical reasoning and analysis based writing which any entrance exam tests you on. This training on articulating thoughts in precise and objective way gives the student an idea about how clearly he thinks, how well he writes and how effectively he puts his thoughts into words. Understanding where one lacks is the first step towards improvement. These writing exercises give a student a good idea about where they lack and get them going in learning the techniques to bridge the gap. Whichever field one may go to, how you write makes a strong impression on someone you would want to impress. Like we say, don't take email writing lightly as most professional communications take place over emails.
