‘Samavesh’, SPJIMR’s annual industry-academia conclave organised by the Post Graduate Programme in Management (PGPM) saw distinguished industry leaders and academicians come together for a series of five rapid fire conclaves.
‘Samavesh 2017’, which was spread across two days of the weekend, covered issues in the following areas: Consulting, Information Management, Finance Management, Operations and Marketing.
The inaugural session on the first morning saw the traditional lighting of the lamp, which was followed by the SPJIMR Dean Dr. Ranjan Banerjee’s address to the audience. Speaking at the Consulting Conclave, he said, “We need someone who can look at the organisation afresh and help us see things that were there but not apparent."
"If we use theory in practice then the benefits of practice are greater and conclaves like Samavesh are a larger dimension for influencing practice," he added.
PGPM programme Head Dr. Suresh Lalwani spoke on the strong industry- academia connect at SPJIMR's PGPM and how the participants of PGPM Class of 2017 are industry ready. He said, “This batch defines itself as vibrant, extremely talented, curious, and committed and a hardworking bunch of achievers and contributors.”
