Mumbai, 8th May 2018: SPJIMR’s prestigious Post Graduate Programme in Management (PGPM) will host a wide range of industry leaders and professionals for a series of five conclaves on May 18 and 19 centered around the theme ‘Going Digital: Changing the way of doing business’.
The conclave series called ‘Samavesh’ is an annual event led by the PGPM students and hosted on the SPJIMR campus. Over the years, ‘Samavesh’ has grown to become a significant industry engagement platform that brings together industry and academia to help exchange ideas, share best practices and learn from each other.
‘Samavesh’ is a platform where practice meets theory. Business leaders bring in practical knowledge and academics comes in with theoretical frameworks, a confluence that can open new avenues of learning and growth.
The five conclaves planned this year are Consulting, Information Management, Finance, Marketing and the Operations & Supply Chain. Each conclave will discuss how digitalisation is making an impact on business today, how business models are changing and the likely way in which these changes will play out in the future.
The first day of ‘Samavesh’, May 18, will see the inaugural Consulting Conclave around the theme ‘Consulting Opportunities in the Digital Era’. The Information Management Conclave will explore the various dimensions of the theme ‘Digital Disruptions Leading to Innovation in Business Models’. The topic for the Finance Conclave, the last conclave on the first day, is ‘Opportunities and Challenges in the Evolving Financial Landscape’.
May 19 will open with the Operations & Supply Chain conclave around the theme: ‘Transforming the Supply Chain in Industry 4.0’, also referred to as ‘the fourth industrial revolution’, which will discuss aspects of disruptive changes of digitalisation in the supply chain industry. The final conclave on Marketing with the theme ‘Digital Marketing: Is it the End of Traditional way of Doing Business?’ will delve in the different facets of digital technology revolutionising conventional marketing approaches.
Prof. Prem Chandrani, Chairperson, PGPM, said, “‘Samavesh’ has reached a position now in the ecosystem where people respect it. This student driven initiative is not only a highlight of the PGPM programme, but also an event that is looked forward to by practitioners from industry. We look forward to welcoming business leaders and professionals and hope to drive meaningful conversations in what will surely be an action packed weekend on the SPJIMR campus, full of new insights and learnings.”
