After the success of its first Business School-Industry Interaction Conference, the NMIMS University School of Business Management is all set to roll out the 2nd Edition of this Conference on February 22 and 23, 2017 at Hotel ITC, Maratha. The theme for this year is 'Business Excellence in New Age Digital Economy'.
Rapid and unprecedented change perhaps defines the contemporary world economy. Not only has the world witnessed a shift in power from the West to the East, but business architecture across the world is being defined by accelerated adoption of key technologies like mobility, cloud computing, business intelligence, robotics, data analytics, digital interventions, disruptive business models and social media.
New models of value creation are emerging based on the principles of agility, autonomy, collaboration and flexibility. All these are transforming businesses and sparking a new wave of excellence. Excellence in leadership and skill building, excellence in entrepreneurship and wealth creation and bringing about pervasive social changes through financial inclusion are the calls of the day.
Economic growth and technology are inextricably linked. The current ecosystem is encouraging investments in technology as emerging markets ramp up their demands for technology to fuel growth, while advanced markets seek new ways to optimise costs and drive 'innovention'.
This becomes a virtuous circle, as digital technologies drive consumer income and demand, education and training, and efficient use of resources. All these in turn result in accelerated economic growth particularly in emerging markets.
Over the next few years, many sectors, including technology, telecommunications, entertainment, stress management, media, banking, retail and healthcare, will continue to be reshaped through digital transformations. Executives must, therefore, be aware of new challenges and enablers.
These are some of the key themes our Conference is going to table through keynote speeches, research papers, plenary sessions and CXOs' fora, in which industry leaders, eminent thinkers, research scholars and students will participate.
Like its first edition, the Conference will facilitate seamless knowledge sharing between academicians and scholars from India and abroad and key decision makers and thought leaders of the Indian industry. The Conference will be a platform where business schools and industry can meaningfully interact, establish new contacts, share knowledge and most importantly, help develop tomorrow's business leaders.
We invite you to join us in this Conference to exchange ideas, network with like-minded people, meet new talent and create a knowledge pool.
This conference has been organised for all business professionals in leadership roles across functional areas, viz., Strategic Planning, Marketing, Finance, ERM, HR, and allied areas. Officials in roles of CEO, CFO and other CXO positions will immensely be benefitted by getting excellent cross functional inputs and experiential learning points. It will also provide an excellent platform to young budding managers for achieving a state of readiness for effectively responding to the critical calls of tomorrow.
All these will facilitate participants across the board to navigate their respective organisations to the next orbit through present turbulent times. Above all it will provide and excellent networking opportunities with the who’s who of India Inc. Consultants, independent practitioners as well as academicians will also be able to derive substantial knowledge and application orientations towards achieving excellence in their own work areas.
