FROM THE CHAIRPERSON’S DESK
Dr. MAURVI VASAVADA, CHAIRPERSON, CENTRE FOR MANAGEMENT STUDIES & RESEARCH, GANPAT UNIVERSITY.
Management education today is most dynamic and vibrant among different fields of education. The challenges brewing from hyper competition with rapid advances in technology, processes and systems, innovative management practices, changing tastes and preferences of consumers and world becoming global village, has put tremendous responsibility on the shoulder of B-schools to prepare multiple skilled personalities who can deliver precision with speed.
Understanding the growing and complex requirement of industries today, we at Centre for Management Studies and Research have taken steps to leave no stone unturned to develop and prepare students for such challenges. The Centre has initiated industry focused programs to prepare management talent for the said industries keeping in purview their unique requirement of skill sets. It is in this perspective that the centre has taken measures to ensure quality in every possible area: curriculum, faculty, industry interface, research, infrastructure facilities, and organization of various student and faculty events. The sole purpose is to achieve total quality standards for education with a philosophy of continuous improvements.
To highlight few achievements, the Faculty of Management Studies has annual national-level students' event Pratibha (Annual Summer Project Contest) and Protsahan (annual event based on creative theme). Having established itself firmly, the FMS has initiated the next phase of concrete development by starting International Conference on emerging management perspective in collaboration with Victoria University Australia and also Workshop on Case Writing for Management teachers to support and encourage research in management. FMS has started bi-annual referred Journal in Management & Research from this year to provide platform to provide quality research and its publication. FMS students participated in various management fests and brought recognition through talent. The effort is to develop an environment where overall personality gets a grooming.
I hope the Centre will act as a link between the industry and the students, and would help the industry get the right person for their profile.
