Start-up Lessons - Success & Failure
COPE entrepreneurship has organised an expert talk on startup lessons - Success and failure by Me.Dharmendra Mehta - E com business head at Lal's group.
COPE – Antah Prerana
“Entrepreneurs see change as the norm and as healthy. Usually, they do not bring about the change themselves. But – and this defines entrepreneur and entrepreneurship – the entrepreneur always searches for change, responds to it, and exploits it as an opportunity.”
― Peter F. Drucker, Innovation and Entrepreneurship
DSU launched its Centre of Proficiency Enhancement – Entrepreneurship on 13 th September 2023. The foundation of COPE, short for the Centre of Proficiency Enhancement in Entrepreneurship finds its inspiration in the Sanskrit word - Antah Prerna - which closely resembles the word “Entrepreneur” in both sound and spirit. Antah Prerna translates to Self-Motivated and serves as the guiding philosophy behind this initiative. In the realm of entrepreneurship, self-motivation is the cornerstone upon which successful ventures are built. It’s the unwavering belief in one’s vision, the tenacity to persist in the face of adversity, and the unshakable determination to turn ideas into reality. COPE recognizes that self-motivation is not just a personal attribute; it’s a skill that can be nurtured and cultivated. Entrepreneurial spirit, an embodiment of this self-motivation, forms the bedrock of COPE’s educational journey. It’s a mindset that encourages students to embrace uncertainty, view failure as a stepping stone, and see challenges as opportunities. This spirit empowers them to be proactive, innovative, and adaptable, skills that are as valuable within the business world as they are in life. In the educational journey of students, the infusion of self-motivation and entrepreneurial spirit elevates learning beyond the classroom. It encourages them to question, to experiment, and to envision possibilities beyond the conventional career paths. COPE fosters an environment where students not only acquire knowledge but also learn how to apply it in innovative and transformative ways. By instilling this entrepreneurial spirit, COPE equips students with the tools to navigate an ever-changing world. It empowers them to take ownership of their futures, to create opportunities where none exist, and to make a lasting impact on society. Whether students choose to embark on entrepreneurial ventures or pursue traditional careers, this spirit becomes an invaluable asset, driving them towards excellence.
This event was honoured by the presence of the chief guest Mr. Raghunath Kempanahally, CEO of ChipLogic. It was also attended by Dr. Steve McKenna, Associate Professor of Management at Curtin University, the Pro – Vice-chancellor of DSU – Mr.Janaradan and the dean of SCMS Capt. A. Nagaraj Subbarao Phd.

English Language as a Skill!
People with more positive attitudes toward learning English make more of an effort and learn more than people with negative attitudes. However learning a new language can be challenging to most. At SCMS we have addressed this by having our students learn English using animation and gamification as an intervention.
In a first of its kind process the learning app will be proctored and give students an opportunity to learn by practice and play with a pedagogy that is both immersive and hugely entertaining.
While there are plenty of good language learning apps on the market, our own finding is that learners still benefit from having an effective teacher and a supportive learning community. Teachers help students set achievable goals and overcome barriers that inevitably arise along the way. Supportive classmates provide accountability and the friendly push that students need to keep up with their study plans. The learning cohort that will be formed will be a supportive one.

Sports Activities among MBA and EMBA Students - 2022
Sports activities at SCMS-PG, Dayananda Sagar University is an essential part of a student’s life. Sports activities boosts students' mental health and also helps them learn to maintain a balance between their curricular and co-curricular activities. It enables them to be emotionally strong as sports lets them experience various emotions like success, failure, happiness, disappointment, etc.. Sports not only contributes to shaping their personality but also impacts their academic performance significantly. There have been many studies proving that students involved in sports during their college life perform better in academics. Reasons for this can be many, as sport imparts them with the skills of time management and also acts as a stress buster when they are loaded with too many assignments and deadlines. Students need a break from their daily routine to ensure that they have stable mental health. Sports activities are productive breaks that enhance students’ capacity to think, learn, focus, and contribute to academics.
Badminton is one of the most popular sports in the World with more than millions of active players worldwide. Whether it’s playing or watching; people have always appreciated this sport due to its shuttlecock networking, presence of mind and furious attacks. Playing Badminton has many benefits for health too. Sports helps students develop their various interpersonal skills such as patience, communication, leadership, punctuality, accountability, teamwork, trust, and others which will in turn help them not only to win a particular sports competition but also grow and achieve success in their lives.
School of Commerce and Management – PG, Dayananda Sagar University always aims at providing excellent infrastructure to our students. We believe in the holistic development of students, by encouraging a balance between curricular and co-curricular activities that includes sports activities too.

Ethnic Day 2022
The number one reason students have for investing so much time and money into a college education is to get a good job, with two thirds of them seeing “financial stability” as the primary goal. And yet, despite record low unemployment, under-employment is extremely common, with as many as 80% of college graduates working in jobs that don’t actually require their qualifications.
At Dayananda Sagar University - School of Commerce & Management Studies (PGP) Sagar University, School of Commerce & Management Studies, we recognise the need to inculcate generic skills and prepare our students for a life that is more substantive than just a job. Accepting diversity and celebrating it is an ethos that Bengaluru lives by and so do our students.

Our pedagogy is practical and student-friendly in the School of Commerce & Management Studies. Professors extensively use case studies, simulations, role play and presentations to embellish lectures. We have Prof. Ramesh Murthy and Prof. Chandan, professors of Supply Chain Management, conducting a simulation exercise for MBA students. The beer game is an exercise that demonstrates supply channel dynamics. Simulates material and information flow in a simplified beer production and distribution channel, focusing on the linkages among various stakeholders - a beer manufacturer, its distributors, a wholesaler, and a retailer. Students formed teams of four, each assigned to place orders and manage inventory for one firm in the channel. In this simplified channel, orders are the only information to flow among channel participants. The instructor can work with students to understand the nature of the problems they experience, identify the causes, and discuss possible remedies. Despite the simplicity of the simulation, most teams find it extremely difficult to keep inventory and stockout costs low.
