HOD’S Message

We are living in challenging times. Every batch of MBA students has a unique situation associated with their period of study. The 2020 – 2022 batch is witnessing the impact of COVID pandemic across a wide spectrum of stakeholders beginning from an individual to families to Governments. Such events present a unique opportunity for students and business leaders to be more vigilant of global events and their consequences for all stakeholders and accordingly be responsive. This will build the ability to be prepared and make necessary plans, decisions to survive, thrive and sustain.
We do not know what is in store for the times to come. But let us keep our sights on both global events and national, regional events with potential for global ramifications on the horizon and be prepared to ride it to enable individuals, communities, businesses, and governments to continue to operate, cooperate and contribute for the common good.
