L&T Group company Mindtree hosted its first-ever annual conclave of India’s university senates at Bengaluru on 13-14 May. Aptly named Defining Possibilities, the conclave marked two exciting, action-packed days of wide-ranging discussions and deliberations on all things education and digital.
The event provided a platform to more than 85 of India’s leading academicians and senior Mindtree executives to exchange ideas and insights for broader, more effective industry-academia collaboration in enabling early careers and, in turn, shaping tomorrow’s tech talent.
Mindtree CEO & MD Mr Debashis Chatterjee provided a comprehensive overview of key industry trends and developments.
When it comes to building a successful campus programme, Mindtree takes an engagement-led- recruitment model that captures mindshare and market share. University / institution level customised programmes, such as setting up digital labs, enabling industrial visits, workshops and guest lectures complement Mindtree’s efforts in extending the demand pipeline.
A panel discussion on the ‘post- pandemic new order in higher education in India’ helped the audience discover the helpful insights of four seasoned academicians — Mr Nadarajan R (Dean Placement & Training – PSG College of Technology, Coimbatore), Mr Gautam Banerjea (Director – St Thomas’ College of Engineering & Technology, Kolkata), Dr K S Sridhar (Principal & Dean for Training & Placement – PES University, Bengaluru) and Dr Harpal Thethi (Head of Training & Placement – Lovely Professional University, Punjab).
It was followed by a panel discussion on ‘getting businesses to the future, faster using digital technologies.’ The panelists included Mindtree leaders Mr Radhakrishnan R (Global Delivery Head – Technology Services, Customer Success and Data Common), Mr Suresh H P (Global Delivery Head – Industry Groups), Mr Kaushik Chakraborty (Global Delivery Lead – Customer Success), Mr Nikhil Datar (Global Delivery Head – Communication, Media & Technology), and Ms Ritu Chakrabarti (Global Head – Learning & Development).
Mr Rajiv Krishnan, MD & CEO – Ma Foi, delivered a special address on best practices to improve the quality of education using technology in the talent landscape.
The event gave a fresh impetus and direction to the learning experiences and environments of tomorrow that blur the boundaries between the classroom – real as well as virtual – and the world outside.
