The constantly growing businesses and expanding realms of technology have made it mandatory to start thinking about the future of mankind. Yes! If we continue to exploit the resources at the existing pace then there are chances that we would be left with no future to think about. This corporate concern was also the core focus of the conference that was hosted at SIIB. Being one of the top MBA schools in the country, SIIB took the league in gathering the experts from the industry to share their insights on this crucial area of concern. After all, the future managers need to learn to think like the experts and through such sessions Symbiosis has always provided its students with a proactive learning atmosphere.
A popular misconception is that the growth of a nation is directly proportional to the energy resources that it consumes. However, the programs like MBA in Pune or any other similar option have always focused on letting the students learn the better way by understanding the ground realities of the industry. As a result of this belief, the Symbiosis Institutes have proactively taken initiatives to maximize the learning of their students. The real challenge lies in balancing a high energy demand economy against concerns of climate change impacts.
To discuss the intricacies of these issues on a national & global perspective, Symbiosis Institute of International Business in association with ENERTIA, (India’s leading journal on sustainable energy & power) hosted a one day conference on “Energy security & climate change – Challenges for developing India” in Pune. Mr R V Shahi, former Secretary, Power, Government of India and Mr V P Raja, Chairman, MERC, Mumbai were the guest of honor for the occasion
During the course of discussions, the students were exposed to a distinctive blend of perspectives of current issues from diverse sectors of energy & environment, on a common platform.
Such initiatives help in converging the Symbiosis vision of “nurturing a sustainable environment through knowledge enhancement” towards reality. Though the core focus of the initiative were the MBA in Energy and Environment students at SIIB, the discussion saw equal participation and enthusiasm from the other specializations as well given the relevance of the topic.
