It gives me immense pleasure to welcome all existing and new students to the AIMA family. The coming year is very special for AIMA since it is the diamond jubilee year for us.
In a fast-changing business environment, CME is trying to ensure that its graduates are ready for the new world. It is constantly adapting its curriculum and pedagogy to reflect the changing business realities and technologies. In this phase of education transformation, CME has strategically and consciously taken steps by further expanding its agenda and reach.
Realizing the country’s potential, AIMA, CME has given a lot of emphases on Entrepreneurship. To promote Entrepreneurship in the young mind of the country which would in turn create the self-sustainable environment for the nation, AIMA, CME has taken initiative by launching programs like Accreditation for Entrepreneurship teachers, Professional Diploma on Developing Entrepreneurial Skills for Family Business and Diploma in Business Essentials for Startups and Entrepreneurs. These programs will be delivered in association with the very prestigious institute in the area of Entrepreneurship – Entrepreneurship Development Institute of India, Ahmedabad.
Apart from short programs, AIMA is hosting 2nd Global Procurement Summit 2017 with support of The World Bank on the theme “Good Procurement for Good Governance” on 27-28 February 2017. The summit will bring together the most senior global and regional procurement community to examine opportunities and challenges faced in transforming procurement today.
I expect that all the students would take advantage of the expert knowledge provided during such programs and Summit.
I am confident that they will bring glory to their organizations with their achievements.
All the best for the coming session!
