What a Project Report means to A Student?

Today i wanna discuss this bcz I have seen numbers of threads on this place and on many place that students are used to ask for the MBA ready project report instead of doing their job. They thinks that this is the simple way to get this "MAKING OF PROJECT REPORT" work done and always look for the help in this regard ..and my question is WHY?

What are the objectivs of this Project Report and what it means to a student. Why Institues/Collages/University's asking for student to work on PROJECTS??

-To expose students to the working of any organization and managers.

-To relate the concepts learnt by the students to the working of the organization.

-To work on a problem identified by the organization / student and thus understand the practical aspects of the working of an organization

See this project work are assignning a student for a special purpose and objectives and I think student must show some repect to it.

The worst thing is that I have never seen any post here by which anyone have had suggested any student (s) to not to look for project reports/ready projects. Maybe im wrong, but we must not execute projects/ready projects but yes one can guide the students, can help in understanding the concept of MBA PROJECT REPORT. One can provide the necessary assistance for MBA projects topics choice so that every student gets the desired attention with intellect support...

Hope to get the inputs by other peoples here....

I agree and support this cause. Here are my points:

Most of the students lack guidance. They barely receive any project guidelines from their institute. They neither have resources or leaders around them. Its evident from their questions.

In such a situation which way would they go? I am not supporting laziness or tardiness. These students would soon be a part of our workforce , with such little preparation. If they are not guided rightly, it would create a grave danger for all of us.

Simhan's contribution towards helping them, will remain matchless. I thank everyone who have been contributing for them. I request everyone who reads this discussion, please consider helping those students with your guidance.

Here's one the discussion where Simhan and I tried working it out for the student. Project-ING Vyasa

An article by Archna , which I loved and I am sure many would agree with me Search, Read & Learn <link updated to site home> ( Search On Cite | Search On Google )

I am voting this post for the spotight page, hoping to see more contributions with thoughts and ideas in this direction.

Whatever the seniors above has said is correct.I agree with them.
But in today's environment and particularly abroad, students are doing MBA'S along woth their jobs.Coz many jobs criteria is once they done with MBA they can shift to better and better paid jobs.Their work is so hectic that they cant take out time to meet their deadlines given by the universities.Though they r the fast learners and doers along with their work experience they dont have time.

Dear lingua123,
How do you define abroad? I did my post graduate degrees by part-time studies and attended evening classes. Hence, I understand the time constraints. I also have taught on both undergraduate and postgraduate courses for nearly 20 years. Universities in the UK give enough time to complete the project.
Time constraint is no excuse for finding a short cut. Students who do "cut and paste or copy and paste" jobs are thrown out of the course in the worst case. Even in the best cases they are asked to repeat the modules, when found guilty of plagiarising.
Have a nice day.

Hi Mr.Simhan,
I am particularly talking about the students of UK/US Universities and operating in UAE.
The work schedule what i have noticed among them is very hectic. They got to travel, they got to stay extra hours in the office. They have to take care of their families. So tied up. They don’t even get the time to even attend evening classes.
So,I must say not everyone is as lucky as Mr.Simhan
So, some out of their busy schedule and some to understand difficult guidelines,some when failed, r rejected and some when their degrees r at stake,and opt for guides and help.
cut and paste thing is a passé with many universities. some universities are rejecting even with 1% plagiarism work.
I don’t know much about here. But one thing I can say that exposure level is different(so here I agree with the seniors that students should do their projects to get the exposure.

Dear Lingua123,
I admit my ignorance about the situation in UAE. I know that the University of Bolton has a base there and they follow the same syallabii and rules as in UK.
Also, students from the East who are not used to the rigour of the Western education will find it hard, especially when they do not have time to attend classes.
Yet, my advice is for students to work on their own and seek specific help to improve their work.
Have a nice day.

Hi All.

I must appreciate Mr. Anil's effort to start this thread.but not without mentioning Mr.Simhan's far he has been involved with many of the students/members asking for such free reports or guidance...He was doing it almost single-handededly which is such an appreciable and substantial thing....

Project reports are not just projects actually these are the doors that is the entry to corporate world for students.

Not giving or having enough time to complete your studies (practical exposure) is like not grabbing the opportunity at right time.

While working if we have decided to study further, why not do it with complete honesty, why buy, cheat, copy and paste when the knowledge is all around us... in fact why not do your project with the company you are working..that will solve dual purpose.

Guidance on this forum is available in just have to knock the doors professionally. Here in India, most of the colleges,institutes provide 8 weeks time to complete these project reports while doing your summer training in a company... and still the demand for READY MADE projects are there...One thing could be that they don't want to work diligently towards their goals and so they suffer in the end asking for many things even when they land a job....

on the other hand, we have students, as mentioned by (Cite Contribution), who are not getting right direction and guidance...and yes that is very much the case....

As mentioned in the article <link updated to site home> if we give 2 sincere hours daily to our projects...we will be able to achieve desired results...

Even I agree with you Mr. Simhan "Time constraint is no excuse for finding a short cut" and also in addition to that I wanna say that we should not forget that a graduate/undergraduate student is able to do work on Project without asking for any help from other peoples and also there are numbers of things are available on GOOGLE by which a student can get the required help, guideline for their Project work also they can get the idea and more by their mates, senior students, Professors and other peoples for their project works. I dont think that one can deny this…

See I have raise this question bcz I want the students to not seek for any kind of help and must do work on their Project at their own. IM NOT SAYING THAT THEY CANT GET THE ADVICE ON THAT BUT THE STUDENTS WHO ARE ALWAYS IN SEARCH FOR READY PROJECTS OR SOMETHING LIKE, ARE AT WRONG PATH and by this they are going cheat themselves, even are not judging their capabilities itself…BUT CUT, COPY, PASTE is not the right way to get this work done.

@(Cite Contribution) : Yes maybe there are something like you said and most of the students who are in need for some guidance and barely receive guidelines from their institute but it doesn’t mean they don’t need to work hard or to look for ready project by other way. Also we must not forget that a MBA student is a mature person and have the abilities to work on that. Its not like that they cant work on project work themselves without asking for any help and understand the things better, concept and value of project but still students try to get these kind of help and this they need to understand

Yes (Cite Contribution), you are right that these students would soon be a part of our workforce and we must help them out but with Advice, Suggestion, Direction, Guideline only not in having a READY PROJECTS and I believe this is the main issue here….and just bcz of this I and Mr. Simhan have raise this issue and want the right and good resource for our future team…

Basically our question is …Why MBA students be assigned for theoretical projects? See these projects leads to a student in his/her career and life and this adds to the body of knowledge, provides networking opportunities and opens the eyes to new ideas is ideal. MBA projects often give students experience working in groups and assigned a project that requires them to work at a company on a specific problem for a time and to have this experience there is really important for a student to work on projects sincerely.

It's not just about eastern people.Mostly they are expatriates working and living in UAE.
wE PROVIDE guidance and help to the ones who are NOT in the same category of an MBA student with zero experience... These executives have substantial knowledge of Business and its only that they dont have time to research and write and few other things which i specified above.
As Anil has pointed out above, the purpose of the Projects etc...The Purpose is to gain a greater understanding of the functioning of an activity within an Organisation...This is more appropriate for Students who have NO WORK EXPERIENCE and does not apply to others.
So what Mr.simhan ,doing is the good work.we should appreciate.
