At Maharishi University, we believe in the overall development of students. So, regular industrial visits are a part of the academic structure. Industrial visits bridge the gap between theoretical training and practical learning in a real-life environment.
For this purpose, the Training and Placement cell organized an industrial visit for the students of the Maharishi School of Business Studies. Students visited Coca Cola Moon Beverages Limited, Udyog Kendra 2, Ecotech III, Greater Noida, Uttar Pradesh 201306 on 22nd March, 2023. The Coca-Cola Company is into making varieties of beverages which include carbonated drinks and juices, such as Coca-Cola, Coke, ThumsUp, Sprite, Limca, Maaza, Fanta, Diet Coke and many more. More than 2.1 billion servings of drinks are enjoyed in more than 200 countries each day. 700,000 individuals and 225+ bottling partners are employed by The Coca-Cola Company, which helps to deliver refreshment across the globe.
During the visit, students were provided with a comprehensive understanding of Coca-Cola's production and operation processes. The objective was to give them insight into the entire process, from the extraction of raw materials to the transportation of finished goods. The purpose of this was to demonstrate the practical application of the theory taught at the institute. The visit was organized with the intention of creating awareness about the connection between theory and practical application. The students were able to observe how beverages are made and packed for end consumers. The visit was highly informative and provided a great learning experience for the students.
Following the informative session, students were given the opportunity to witness the operational work at Moon Beverages. This allows for a better understanding and practicality of the work. The HR team led students to observe the automated filling of Coca-Cola cans of 180 and 300ml. In addition, students learned about the manufacturing of Maaza bottles, the preparation of juices, and the filling process into Maaza bottles in an automated infrastructure. This experience provides students with a deep knowledge of Coca-Cola's sustainability and its journey to become the world's second-largest employer. The Coca-Cola Company has been refreshing the world and making a difference for over 136 years.
In total, 27 BBA and MBA students were accompanied by 2 faculty members and 1 member of the training and placement cell for this visit. It was a successful and knowledgeable industrial visit, as it contributed a lot to the holistic development of students by letting them learn about the current trends in the market, the future scenario of the industry, and the new technologies that are being applied in the industry.
