It helps the participants to attune themselves to the latest concepts in not only the world of management theory but also in their application to real world problems that companies and industries face today. The participants have a unique opportunity to be taught/mentored by the well renowned faculty of IIM Ahmedabad, who are well experienced in industry as well as academia. Unlike conventional programs where information asymmetry often dictates quantity of output derived from a workshop, most of the workshops in MSP give an information booklet/case prior to the workshop to enable participants to prepare well for the discussion. It also enables an effective discussion during the workshop. Workshops will focus on a range of topics in different sectors of management such as finance, behavioural finance, carbon finance, economics, operations management, strategy, organizational behaviour, entrepreneurship, advertising, decision making, systems and the like. WHAT DOES AN MSP PARTICIPANT GET? An MSP participant will get to attend six workshops in 6 different domains viz. Finance, Marketing, Strategy, Operations, Consulting and Human Resource & Organizational Behaviour. In addition to these workshops, the MSP participant can also attend all the speaker sessions happening over the three days. The participants will get a certificate of participation after the completion of the event. WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO DO? Registrations for the program will be online.
