Business is not a new subject or a profession. But, perspectives of business has changed dramatically in the last 10 to 20 years. Anyone who engages with business as an entrepreneur, manager, analyst or consultant soon realizes that what they had learnt in business schools no longer hold true for the new era in a world transformed beyond the normal.
21st century world needs evolved working models harnessing the power of data and technology with optimization and synergy across functions. Holistic professionals equipped with the right knowledge, skill, attitude, a global perspective and entrepreneurial mind-set, are needed for this transformational journey. The global pandemic Covid 19 has just exposed how narrow our perspectives of business had become of late. Is there an Institute that recognizes this changed scenario and grooms professionals for the new world in the new era?
The School of Business & Economics, a constituent school of the Adamas University, located at Barasat in a lush green 135 acres campus, strives to do just this and more! The School houses three departments, namely Management, Economics and Commerce, each with an illustrious faculty, who are intellectual leaders, straddling rigour of research and relevance of practice, and alert to demands of millennial workforce, mentors students and provides them with latest knowledge tools like AI, IoT, Machine Learning, Data Analytics, Block-chain, etc. in a socially embedded value system, and cross-cultural sensitivity. The full range of its offering includes undergraduate, post-graduate and doctoral level programs, aimed at students who have just passed their Plus 2 exams, fresh graduates or even working professionals with substantial experience who want to upgrade their knowledge and skills to enhance their employability.
Management: One of the fastest growing professional fields of study, management is the choice of students who want to build a career in the corporate or social sector as an administrator or manager. Understanding of business fundamentals like finance, human resource management, marketing, operations is crucial and are important areas of specializations in management. Apart from the traditional courses like BBA or MBA, Adamas University’s School of Business and Economics also has a few new programs in the domain of Logistics and Supply Chain Management, Digital Marketing, Business Analytics, Entrepreneurship and Family Managed Business, etc. which groom students for the growing new sectors.
Economics: This discipline of study has always been the favourite of those who want to work as economic analysts or consultants, and equip students with the right skills and knowledge to steer companies and even nations to higher economic growth. Apart from the traditional BA, BSc, MA, MSc in Economics and Quantitative Finance, new high-demand Post-Graduate Diplomas in various disciplines like Economic Analysis, Finance and Banking, Public Policy have been introduced to cater to the BFSI sector and public think-tanks.
Commerce: Commerce is as old as business, and therefore has a market-pull which has a history of almost a century. Every company needs professionals who are trained in book-keeping, accounting, audit, taxation and such domains of expertise. The BCom and MCom programs from this department caters to the need of trained professionals who essentially manage the life-blood of any business – funds. These programs are also well-suited for those who are aspiring to get into roles like corporate lawyer, company secretary, etc.
Recruiters complain that though India produces a large number of educated graduates and post-graduates in business domains, their employability is not high. Adamas University addresses this with programs which are integrated with the Industry in the form of deep partnerships with companies like SAS India, AIFMB, Safex, etc. so that students not only get good placement but also can be productive to their recruiters from Day 1. No doubt, Adamas University is the chosen destination for students who want to make a career in business and economics fields. Going beyond the syllabus, each student is mentored by a professor or a corporate guide, classroom teaching is augmented with rigorous field projects on real-life issues, lecture method is substituted with more student-centric methods like case teaching, action-learning, etc.
Prof. Dr. Naveen Das, Dean of The School of Business & Economics, Adamas University, sums up: “The world will not remain the same post-COVID, so why not get educated for the new world and a new era. Welcome to Adamas to know how we create professionals who are humanistic yet analytical – all ready to face the challenges of a global, networked, competitive world with confidence and wisdom!”
