Every Saturday students of PPG Business School visit their company and help the company in their various departmental processes.
MBA is all about leadership and self-governance. PPG students are to take up some business venture and to work on it every Sunday. Whereas on Saturdays they learn to work as employees, on Sundays, they run their own business even if in minuscule form to gain nuances of running a business.
Every student will be provided with a specific amount by the college to carry out a business activity on Sunday. The students are required to present a report on the activity undertaken on Monday. The student can take their profit returning the initial amount to the college. This activity assists the student to attempt at new business or new venture creation.
