Two-day management conference held

- Post Report, Kathmandu

Mar 13, 2017-With the aim of providing students and young professional with a platform for practical learning, Uniglobe College and Global College jointly organised the fourth iteration of a two-day conference on the theme Emerging Issues and Challenges in Management:

Developing Talent, Building Organisations and Creating a Future in the Capital last week. The conference saw 22 management professionals and speakers from Nepal, India, Bangladesh and Slovenia speak about critical contemporary issues pertinent to students. 

Along with international speakers, the conference was headlined by a panel discussion led by Radhe Shyam Pradhan with panelists Madan Kumar Dahal, Sri Ram Poudel, Arun Kumar and Muhammad Z Mamun. The two-day conference also saw speakers discuss wide ranging topics such as employee satisfaction in the banking sector, consumer satisfaction, public transportation, job fulfillment and issues related to human resource management. 

“It is crucial for business schools to initiate these conferences as it provides students with the opportunity to learn practically and gain different skills and perspectives from speakers who are well established in their professional careers,” said Nar Bahadur Bista, the principal of Uniglobe College, about the conference.

He added that such opportunities also serve to motivate the students by helping them model their own careers after inspiring figures that have treaded a similar path to theirs.

In order to create vibrant and innovative business leaders for the future, it is imperative that students remain exposed to the best ideas and practices from all around the globe. Which is why, Bista believes that more platforms need to be created to bring together academics, scholars, practitioners of management and students.

“This was the fourth iteration of the two-day conferences and the participation has been growing with every new edition,” he said, “This goes on to show that there is great potential for platforms like these to flourish and for there to be a paradigm shift in how business education is imparted onto students.”

The conference also saw the presentation of 80 academic papers.
