Events >> Seminar/Conference
Seminars are organized at regular intervals so that students and faculty members can have a focused exposure to management issues of topical interest, often not directly covered in the curriculum. This allows them to have meaningful discussions with industry professionals & domain experts and also their peers. BITT also organizes National Workshop on Library that immensely benefits librarians participating from across the nation. Students always play an active part in the process.
Management Education- Present and Future
The Seminar was organized on 6th September 2010 in the Institute campus. The Key Speakers on the day were Prof. (Dr.) S. Choubey, Prof (Dr.) A. P .Sinha, Prof. Ranjit Maharana, and Prof. Kasturi Sahay.
Prof. (Dr.) S. Choubey expressed that in a churning global marketplace, understanding the fundamental connections between business, the environment, and society has become essential. The roles and responsibilities of business as a global force are becoming more urgent and complex, and concepts related to societal responsibility and sustainability are gaining recognition as essential elements in business management.
Prof (Dr.) A. P. Sinha emphasized that the management programmes broadens the overall perspective of the students so that they can become catalysts for change. It develops conceptual, interpersonal and management awareness for implementation of new structures and strategies.
Prof. R. Maharana laid importance on management education as being specifically designed to develop the business decision-making skills of managers. Conflicting situations induce the students to take decisions under predetermined criteria. These situations closely resemble business events and are indistinguishable from real life events. A major learning gain is that they learn to cooperate with each other and work in teams.
Prof. Kasturi Sahay said that management education trains candidates to resolve conflicting business issues, asked to take management decisions and see the business effects of such decisions, soon thereafter. Candidates learn to win and, in seeking to win, they imbibe new forms of competitive behavior that are ideal for today’s highly chaotic business conditions.
The competition urges students to learn willingly and enhance the pace of learning.
The Seminar provided a beneficial platform for the students and the faculty members to understand the importance of management education in today’s competitive era.
