08-05-20

Prof. Shikha Aggarwal & Dr. Indraneel Mandal, Faculty of Department of Management, attended Webinar on "AI skills: what colleges are not focusing on" organized by NASSCOM on May 8, 2020.

As more industries look to Artificial Intelligence to give them an advantage and improve process efficiencies, the demand for corresponding talent will grow to a point where some black-box understanding of AI, and its capabilities, will become a basic expectation from all professionals. The guest speaker for the session was Mr. Prashnat Shukla, MD- Udemy (India & South Asia) who over his career spanning two decades have performed various successful leadership roles in marketing, sales, product management and software development in US and India. He is, currently, the Managing Director for Udemy business for India and South Asia. Udemy, a San Francisco based company, is one of largest and most popular Online learning system offering 100,000 courses from leading experts in tech courses and soft skills courses to 37 million users worldwide through its online portal at www.udemy.com

Mr. Prashant Shukla, MD- Udemy (India and South Asia), talked about and addressed the concern of our existential educational framework and whether it serves the capabilities for upcoming disruptions as result of the global pandemic. He discussed various initiatives including Atal Innovation Mission’s AI Base Module for schools, developed in partnership with NASSCOM which does look appealing nevertheless. But are there certain dead spots that the education sector is missing? Further discussion happened about how to find out these gaps, and how colleges need to tackle the problem. Mr. Prashant Shukla, strongly feels that Indian education curriculum of many of the professional and technical courses needs a thoughtful reconsideration in order to incorporate the future needs of the global market. The session was very inspiring and insightful.

Webinar organized for PG students

Department of Management I.T.S, Mohan Nagar Ghaziabad organized a Webinar of Leadership Talk series for PGDM & MBA (2019-21) Batch by Dr. Vinod Dumblekar, Director- Mantis  and Founder- Director ISGA, India. He is the only Indian in the International Simulation and Gaming Association on the topic “Business after Lockdown: Methods, Models and Opportunities” on 21 April, 2020.

Dr. Vinod Dumblekar explained that now businesses that use cloud computing will not buckle under the pressure of the corona virus pandemic. For instance, the cloud gives businesses easy access to digital payment methods. It has enabled companies to continue working, by rapidly and securely providing access to business applications to their employees working at home.

Dr. Vinod further emphasized that automation and artificial intelligence will enhance the resilience of supply chains. To create long-term resilience we will likely see further robotic automation and artificial intelligence (AI) within their supply chains. These technologies will reduce manual intervention and hand-offs, cutting transmission risks, and reducing the reliance on humans to work face-to-face.

Dr. Dumblekar suggested that successful businesses will have a combination of resilience and agility. Organizations should harness leading practices and catalyze a joint response to mitigate the effect on business. Adaptive organizations will emerge from this period stronger, wiser and more connected as a global society. Resilience will be at the forefront of every strategy, yet it is agility that will ensure competitiveness, and an ability to respond to the unexpected. At the end of the corporate lecture a special vote of thanks was given to him.
