Inspirit Evolve Paradigm Shift- Where Campus Meets Corporate
The paradigm shift towards the new normal has been difficult drift to accept. With lakhs of students struggling to get into a prestigious B-school to learn Business and crores of fresher’s trying to hold their grip during this economic downturn has been immense. Inspirit Evolve stepped up to serve industry wisdom from top subject matter experts to the B- School students
The Big Idea
An Efficient Transition where Campus Meets Corporate
It is through Industry Insights at every touchpoint, can emerging leaders be fully groomed for the future they trespass. Certain corporate expectations are untold in the B-school learning, that have to be replenished. With an uncertain business market, forecasted economic turmoil, & global recession down the line, our emerging leaders are the ones who would find it difficult to cope. With traditional MBAs getting not just tedious but also becoming an expensive prospect for aspiring students, the B-Schools are heading towards a disruptive change. Thus, the rise of effective leadership alongside our budding leaders of tomorrow was the need of the hour. The placement committee of the management colleges needs to understand the global talent scout, during & post-COVID phases. Moreover, it was about finding where the path takes you, while Inspirit makes the mapping towards your goal easier by connecting you with the right set of minds.
The Right Decision to Make During Disruptive Times
Many articles support the idea of Business School Losing track when it comes to practically equipping one’s students for the Corporate environment. Every Student wants to have a glimpse of different domains before they land their dream jobs, but are these just theoretical possibilities? Hands-on experience in the area of interest is key to the right decision. Freshers who have been passed out during this academic year are the ones trying to fit in the mould of corporate requirements. Taking it up as it comes, is directionless, thus a strategic career progression was to be jotted down to accomplish one’s set goals.
The most common problem that circled the table was the need to acquire a B-School degree, allow this phase to pass, take up online classes, or utilize one’s time by opting for online certification, and enhance skills through digital webinars. Etc. Well, at the end of the day, where Campus Meets Corporate, is about what has fetched you the return on investing your time, effort, and money. Is the business curriculum foolproof to support the needs of the post-COVID Era? Will there be massive digitalization & reduced humane touch to the processes involved?
A Digital Event that Bridges the Campus to Corporate Gap
Inspirit decided to connect with Top Management Students PAN India for the Connect Program. We opened up pre-event queries for the event speaker unveil, to ensure every student’s distant dream of asking a relevant question to the speakers themselves can be fulfilled. Our team made sure to connect with students who can represent one’s college as well as put forth a question to the panel of speakers even during the event, in a curated segment called Interactive QnA. The Campus Ambassador program announced pre-event, was a thoughtful step toward identifying potential representatives across India. These selected candidates will be further responsible to promote & leverage various C2C Connect programs on their Campus, which shall happen over time. Many students approached us for an internship before EVOLVE was conceptualized, these opportunities came alive, when Inspirit announced its first virtual internship openings via this digital student event.
We invited subject experts, after thorough research on students’ expectations/areas of interest/ queries. Dr Adil Malia an Evangelist in the HR Industry, put forth the acronym concept of A-Agility, D – Drive, I- Innovation & L – Learning during his workshop about Effective Leadership during Changing Times. Thoughtful questions such as Will the conventional ideas & theories still be of any help in the current scenario? Can the Black Swan Effect cause us potential harm in accomplishing our future goals? Effective Leaders are the ones who are into the glimmer of hope! The power-packed Panel Discussion that was held with Dr Jessy Christin, Dr Ankita Singh, as well as Frederick Correa, was a blockbuster among the students. The sharp insights about different domains right from, ITES, financial advisory, AI, and Human Resources to Infrastructure, Healthcare, Business Operations, and The crux of imparting the need to understand one’s Ikigai were put forth by Mr Frederick in the panel, whereas Dr Ankita rightly pointed out the importance of a candidate such as proactiveness, punctuality, innovative, collaborative, human capabilities since it is not always about the technical knowledge one might own.
