SAFIM started a 10-weeks Certification program called “Future Leader Programme”( Igniting Lights for Tomorrow) for MBA students of Rajalakhsmi School of Business, Chennai. ‘Future Leaders Program’ is based on the factors raised in the FICCI report of 2010 on the employability quotient of graduates gathered from a questionnaire sent to employers of multiple sizes and verticals. According to the report, the skills on demand are related to personal attitude and applicability of knowledge rather than domain or technology. This program deals with the qualities that enable individuals to envisage a dynamic vision for the future, to harness the potential within them to deliver the vision into a successful reality and to contribute in the larger social orb that extends beyond the boundaries of their work and personal life. The program is facilitated in an experiential format to help assimilate and actualize the learning more effectively.
Inaugural Session of the programme held on 17th July at RSB campus, Chennai. Professor Saikat Sen, Director, SAFIM, Rupa S, Senior Associate, SAFIM, and Mezjan J. Dallas, Head of University Relations, IBM, facilitated the session. Students actively participated in the programme.
