Abstract


In today’s challenging and dynamic environment, Education is playing a key role in the success of student’s life. Research studies showed that pre- universities have a lesser emphasis on life skills like teamwork, time management, continuous learning and independent studying capabilities. The evaluation of students learning is measured by quantum of marks or credits and the outcome based learning is given lesser importance. But these skills seem to be the more essential for success of students in higher education in universities. Bridging the readiness gap of students and creating transition from pre-university to first year university education is challenging as well has an impact on their retention in the course for which they are enrolled. PES University has executed a one month bridge program for the undergraduate management and compute application students as a first mile stone of student development programs with key focus on orientation, motivation, critical thinking, self awareness, social awareness, career preparation, social responsibility, interpersonal skills and hands on activities.
