With the MBA degrees mostly focusing on the hard side of the businesses such as process, structure, strategy etc., there are very few schools focusing on the soft sides. GIBS is all set to be a thought leader in this aspect by focusing on what are the factors that would create a successful next generation business leader. With this panel being officially formed and taken off, GIBS will focus on various tasks and activities that bring about the leadership and team playing aspects that generally the theories do not bring. With experiential learning they are concentrating on bringing out attributes such as the ability to lead, work in a team towards a common goal, enhance critical reasoning, judgment capabilities, analysis, crisis management and efficacious decision making skills.
