About the Programme
AIMA has been running a very unique programme for young people called the “Shaping Young Minds Programme” (SYMP). The programme provides a platform for young professionals and management students to interact with iconic leaders from various elds, where these leaders talk about their lives, their successes and more importantly – their failures. There are no speeches – just stories and anecdotes from life! This helps young people synchronize personal and career goals through exposure to experience and wisdom of successful people. The idea is to facilitate students get an opportunity to interact with achievers whom they would not have otherwise got an opportunity to interact with, learn from the experiences of those who have been there and done that.
Given the current scenario, AIMA is organizing an online version of the Shaping Young Programme in collaboration with our Local Management Associations. The online version will allow us to make this event reach out to all the youth of the country instead of restricting to any one region.
Please note that there is no participation fee, however pre-registration is mandatory
