Institute to Industry - A Transition Story by an Alumnus

It was a great experiential learning for the new batch of PGDM students from an alumnus of the Institute, Mr. Jacob Thomas, Campus Recruitment Lead (Kerala), Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) during the course of the talk ‘Institute to Industry – A Transition Story’ on July 11, 2015 at the SDMIMD Auditorium. Mr. Jacob planned the session to make the new SDMites understand the importance of application- oriented learning and the need to consider a holistic approach. In this talk he said ‘knowledge does not make one complete, wisdom does’. Students need to understand the timely application of the needed skill in the most effective manner. He argued that students are institutionalized to the thinking that what they believe is correct. The new SDMites were given an idea of how institutions work and how budding mangers have to equip themselves.
