CSI Logo Final

Cambridge Institute of Technology provides various opportunities to students to get an exposure to industry and community. There is a strong focus to develop critical professional skills by providing opportunities to apply classroom learning in practical setting.

One such programme, aptly named ‘Lokahita’, is a yearlong programme in which students work on various social impact projects with social organizations working to achieve Sustainable Development Goals. This programme is run under the umbrella of Community for Social Impact (CSI), a larger initiative for community service across Cambridge Group of Institutions.

The programme is offered in partnership with LetsTagOn, a platform which provides social impact experiences to youth through sensitization, social immersions, internships and volunteering.

The programme is mapped to MBA programme outcomes and course outcomes of key courses such as managerial communication, marketing management & organizational behaviour. The program is aligned to development of critical management skills such as empathy, critical thinking, team work, problem solving, leadership & communication skills.

Lokahita programme engages students on all Saturdays during the 1st and 2nd semester in accordance with the academic calendar.

How is CSI programme beneficial for your MBA?

Cambridge Institute of technology, itself a great example of a Zero-Waste campus. Every student on campus takes small steps towards saving the earth from global climate change with other concern as well. Not only does the “Lokahita” concentrate on developing socially responsible personal skills, but also on building good analytical and administrative skills. For MBA students, the ‘Lokahita’ brings

major advantages for learning the skill of management. Here are some primary lessons for MBA students which are mainly focusing on enhancing the skills through the ‘Lokahita’ program, Although “Lokahita” is primarily structured to concentrate on the improvement of the skills of MBA students, CSI is the bigger approach that our Cambridge Community encompasses.

How has Coronavirus Epidemic and Lockdown been influenced by CSI projects?

It was impossible to conduct any field project due to the coronavirus outbreak. However, we took advantage of the virtual medium and pursued our social projects through virtual connections.
