On the 17thof October,2014 experts from different manufacturing industries visited ISBR for a “Panel Discussion” which was named as a “Industry connect”.
The panellist for this discussion was:-
- Mr. Gopinath Anur (Director of Operations)-Vacon Drives & Controls
- Mr.Devadas Shetty (Director of Manufacturing Operations)-Schneider Electric
- Mr. Rajpurohit Singh (Head-Sales)-Volvo
- Prof. Preeja Sridhar (Moderator)
In this discussion the panellist mainly focused on the skill-sets and competencies needed for an MBA. They also emphasised on the importance of soft-skills and hard-skills. The speakers tried to demystify the myth that “manufacturing sector is all about equipment and machinery” the interest always is, for the people and the concept of understanding the business; and hence it is the time for MBA’s to capitalise on the range of job opportunities.
There were lots of queries on the kind of job profiles available at these sectors at the point, the speakers patiently elaborated on these aspects thus bringing a strong awareness among the students.
