a fashion show as a class project
Lately, a trend is going up in educational institutions around the country of having ‘live projects’ in business studies where students are put into a situation to make the most of their learning. These can be from setting up small businesses to running full scale events. Bahria University, one of the premier universities of the capital (and my alma matter as well) takes this idea to the full. Senior students from MBA are asked to run some sort of project as a ‘class project’ (not even the final project) on which they will be graded. Due to intense competition to get better grades, each student is determined to outdo not only each other, but all of their predecessors over the last couple of years with bigger, better and bolder ideas. One such project was a Fashion Show, once an event which could only be run with university/faculty involvement, captured brilliantly by Humayun Rana as a documentary. Check it out.
Any wonder why students from Bahria are slowly becoming coveted by top organizations around the country?
