To churn out the best quality humanware that befits the industry, academia need to centrifuge with industry. Academia establishes theories, Industry propagates practices. To ingrain sound theory and contemporary practices in the students , education cannot be restricted to the four walls of classroom. Either students go to the industry or the industry comes to the students. At Acropolis (North Campus) we practice both in the form of industrial visits and expert talk.
An expert talk was organized on ‘ Prospects in Operations Management ’ for the MBA students by Prof Juhi Kamakoty, under the aegis of Kaizen Club. The resource person for the event was Engineer Samkit Sethi, Director Sales and Production planning, Anand Air Coolers, Indore. A Production engineer & post graduate from NITIE, Mumbai, Er Samkit Sethi gave an overview of Operations Management and the best practices followed by various organizations. He pitched the difference between theory and practices, reinstated the need to develop applicability skills for becoming good Managers. The guest speaker emphasized that theoretical clarity is a pre requisite to good performance at job. The session was interesting and engrossing. The expert talk eventually ended opening up new horizons for the students.
