Vice-Chancellor's counsel to students at management meet

KARAIKUDI: P. Kanniappan, Vice-Chancellor, Alagappa University, has stressed the need for developing organisational skills so as to compete creatively and meet the expectations of the corporate world.

Inaugurating a management meet, "SamrajiAim07" organised by Alagappa Institute of Management, Karaikudi recently.

Mr. Kanniappan said that excellent event managing and organising abilities would certainly be value added qualifications for students, particularly business administration students. These would meet the expectations of corporate houses. Organising events would help students know how to do many things at a time and to face crisis situations.

Mr. Kannappan said the Alagappa Institute of Management was currently placed at the 72nd position among the top 100 business schools in the country. It might move into the top-50 list in the near future.

He said strenuous efforts would be taken to place it among the top 10 business schools in the country. For that, infrastructure and academic support had been enhanced. Faculty members, books, journal, computers and other facilities would be made available to the students.

He appreciated the management skill of the AIM students who had proved it by hosting the 30th Indian Social Science Congress, which was held recently at Alagappa University.

R. Dhandapani, Registrar, said that today's business environment needed learners to have the ability to work as a team, leadership skill, risk-taking ability, flexibility and interpersonal skill. Conducting such events would help in bridging the gap.
