It is a push, a platform, a vision and a direction for that idea that takes restless twists and turns in your mind every time there is a trigger of a dreamy conversation or a hapless work day." "The program has been designed to nurture excellence in its fellows. There are well-planned activities and exercises that stimulate the mind to apply theoretical knowledge in real-life situations" Gold Nib Fellowship Activities Developing a sense of purpose and utilizing information to suit the needs of the task at hand are among the several aims of the Gold Nib fellowship program. Following are the exercises that form the core of the fellowship along with the regular classes for the PGDBM course. I) Execute Me Right A three-month activity with real capital to create a real venture. The Gold Nib Fellowship Commission (GNFC) provides all the fellows with cash to invest in an idea and make profits. Double, triple or quadruple but by the 'right' means is the philosophy that forms the heart of the activity. II) The Idea Highway Organize an act, an event, a road show, a seminar or a carnival and get it going at a scale and distinction that makes you a star. It is a group activity that requires the fellows to utilize their networking skills to raise funds and external participation to create a show of substance.   - Execute Me Right - The Idea Highway - The Idea Nirvana - Back Up To Avoid Pack Up III) The Idea Nirvana Best ideas with a plan created over a period of nine months get deserved funds. The students work on each and every aspect of their originally conceptualized ideas under the guidance of learned faculty and industry experts. The course provides ample opportunity to execute your unique idea along with others who plan to make a move in the same domain and direction. Based on the feasibility of the plan and harmony among members, funds are made available to bring the shared vision to reality. Continue Reading Gold Nib Fellowship Activities At the end of one year, the best ideas will be funded in two ways. i) Under the 'The Idea Tree' plan, five worthy ideas, in individual or group capacity, are funded by the Gold Nib Fellowship Commission (GNFC) in a two to three timed phases. The phases depend upon the requirement of the business plan. A maximum of fifteen students can be funded through the Idea Tree plan. ii) The 'Capital Store' plan is inspired from the Greek-Armenian thinker, G.I. Gurdjieff's philosophy - 'As long as our ideas are the same, we will never be apart.' Inviting industry stalwarts to review exemplary business plans forms an imminent part of the course. And if a plan is perfect to become an offshoot of an established corporate, it receives funds and recognition from such a conglomerate. Under the 'Capital Store' plan, five worthy ideas, in individual or group capacity, are funded by the corporate invited to fund them. Based on the idea's strength, the invited company can fund to set up a new company or a new division in the parent organization. A maximum of fifteen students can be funded through this plan. IV) Back Up To Avoid Pack Up With dreams and desires, go hand-in-hand, the possibility of disappointments. However, you can never learn if you don't make mistakes and you can never be successful if you don't encounter failure. Thus, the fellowship program provides a third option to the students called 'Back up to avoid pack up' . UBS has an exhaustive list of employers who visit the campus for recruitments and students of the Gold Nib Fellowship are allowed to avail the opportunities to start a corporate career. Back to Gold Nib Fellowship Activities "The selection process for the Gold Nib fellowship program is rigorous because the program requires a year of unbridled attention and hard work. Anyone in the age group of 20-26 years from any background and any part of the country can apply for the course. However, the selection process would evaluate the student and choose only up-to 60 applicants for the fellowship program." The Duration of the Gold Nib Fellowship would coincide with the duration of the MBA program of the Fellowship Host. For the current batch the Gold Nib Fellowship would be for 15 months.
