IMT Dubai conducted the Management Lounge Meetup October 2017 at the campus in DIAC. The theme of the event was “Innovation in Management” which was graced by prominent personalities from various schools in Dubai.
The workshop presented by Professor Jeremy Williams encouraged the participants to reflect on what it means to be a professional educator, school administrator or counselor in the 21st century. Its main purpose is to critique some of the popular beliefs about the characteristics of the current generation of students in schools, and what strategies might be employed to foster student engagement. The workshop also shared the possibilities and probabilities of employment and employability in the management side in current job market.
The Management Lounge Meetup is a unique platform that reaches out to our school partners for an interactive-academic collaboration. This is an initiative that benefits the principals and students through university engagements, projects, and talent-need collaborations.
Here’s a quick glance at the event conducted at our campus:
Mr. Nagesh Suryanarayana, Managing Director of Protiviti UAE, and Mr. Shailendra Rajan, Senior Manager, Protiviti UAE were present today for an interaction with the students of IMT Dubai.
Mr. Rajan spoke about the type of work consultancy firms do and the skillsets that recruiters look for. He also explained how consultancy requires individuals to be knowledgeable throughout the breadth of management rather than purely within their specialization.
Mr. Nagesh commenced by emphasizing the constancy of change within a consultancy environment, citing examples of how consumer behaviour had changed over the last decade. He then explained that in order to make sure you don’t get left behind, flexibility, diversity and a receptivity to these changes was paramount in being successful as a consultant—industries want transformation and are open to new and brilliant ideas that can take them forward. It was a rousing learning opportunity for the students who had a chance to learn from seasoned industry professionals and they can carry forward with them one simple idea:
“Whenever you promise transformation, you get money.”
