The Universal Business School (UBS) has partnered with Edusports to introduce MIlES programme in its campus. This sports integrated programme for its Bachelor and Masters students will evaluate the impact of sports on social-emotional skills, a sense of self-efficacy of the students who hadn’t or couldn’t participate in sports meaningfully in their preteens or adolescent years.
“Young managers in most organisations today have a 12-hour workday, not including commuting time. This means that managers should be fit and have high energy levels. Sadly, 98 per cent of the B-schools in Mumbai don’t have any playgrounds to allow students to engage in sports,” Tarun Anand, founder of UBS, said.
In this programme, the students engage compulsorily three times a week in sports ranging from football, cricket, basketball, volleyball, touch rugby, badminton and team games and have monthly tournaments.
