Bengaluru (Karnataka) [India], February 18 (ANI/Mediawire): Jagdish Seth School of Management (JAGSOM, formerly IFIM Business School) during the Founder's Day celebration shared the vision of V Padode, the founder, at an online colloquium, co-organized by MBA Universe.
The Director, Dr Atish Chattopadhyay, shared the founder's vision which was to give back to the nation and connecting India to the outside world through education, in the context of then liberalizing India.
Padma Bhushan awardee and global academician, Dr Jagdish Seth, Chairman JAGSOM, shared his views about the attributes of Indian global business schools. These are:
Strong faculty that is young, exciting and willing to experiment,
Ability to attract and retain talent, and
Provide environment and opportunities to excel out of India.
He went on to elaborate that the target market of Indian global business schools need not be the same as that of other global schools abroad. The target of Indian global business schools should be Africa, the Gulf countries, Latin America, and South East Asia in terms of geographical spread and not North America, for student population. The target should be smart aspiring individuals from emerging economies, because of affordability of Indian education, good infrastructure, and faculty that can provide emerging economy perspective.
To provide quality education of international standards, JAGSOM programs blend knowledge from all over the world. "Global perspective is important, wherein, faculty can intermingle and immerse themselves in campuses abroad and bring back points of learning to the parent campus. While catering to the market needs and producing graduates with experience-based learning is essential, specialization should be the hallmark of the Institute," said Dr Sheth, in this vein.
"It's essential to have a specialized curriculum, and the pedagogy should be to learn by solving. To achieve this, the faculty should be domain specialists and be able to facilitate experiments on campus and encourage the students' creativity, innovation, and leadership qualities. The motive is to produce graduates who are interactive and engaged while learning and integrate the market requirements when it comes to step into their careers," said Dr Atish Chattopadhyay, Director, JAGSOM, adding to that.
