Today, we had an exclusive chat with Pratima Sheorey, Director of Symbiosis Centre for Management and Human Resource Development on how she plans to offer students the required skill sets for a lucrative management career.
Q 1. Are students on point in terms of being work-force ready?
Students are exposed to experiential learning right from the first semester in order for them to learn the concepts and their application. Elements of behavioural skills like people management, crisis management, conflict handling and negotiation, inter-personal skills are inculcated in the students.
Q 2. What projects are undertaken to upgrade students?
Our students of MBA-IDM have been doing some great projects with the local bodies like PMC, PCMC, PMRDA and Maha-Metro.
The students are also getting opportunities through B-School competitions to upgrade their knowledge, research acumen and applied orientation. Bloomberg terminals, SAP lab, Oracle lab and Analytics lab have been helpful for them to upgrade themselves.
Q 3. What are your plans for the future?
As a young 26-year old institute, SCMHRD aspires to become a force to reckon with when it comes to quality education and healthy personality development. With a firm focus on the assurance of learning, we intend to reinvent ourselves constantly. We are also working to enhance our presence in the industry-academia collaborative paradigm.
By collaborating with industries, we strive to offer a more effective platform for our students to explore the nuances of the business while being at school via live projects, internships and B-School competitions.
