He stated that ‘The gap between rural and urban has greatly reduced over 20 years. Apart from the basic facilities like food, water and road, we have progressed in health facilities too. The improvement in facility has made us to access information, opportunities and facilities available in the World. This has also had impact on education system. Indian institutes have challenges to match the international standards to attract students’.
The Chief Guest and Keynote speaker Dr. Bhimaraya Metri, Director, Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Trichy said ‘India has seen great leap in industrial revolution during last 10 years. We have to move from manufacturing outfits of Industry 1.0 and 2.0 to Industry 4.0 and beyond. The 4th Industrial Revolution has to drive the Indian industries and parallelly we have to prepare ourselves for 5.0 revolution’. Further, Dr. Metri opined that the development of new technology has been a primary driver of the movement to Industry 4.0. Some of the programs first developed during the later stages of the 20th century lacked the technology needed to make their complete implementation possible. Now, Industry 4.0 can help these programs reach their full potential.
Dr. Metri appreciated the achievement of SDMIMD in terms of internationalization and research contribution to the area of management education.

About the Conference:
Economies across the globe are showing definite signs of recovery. Among those nations, the U.K is coming to terms with life post its exit from the European Union. Similarly, the U.S is also in the path of recovery with a hike in interest rates, reduction of corporate taxes etc. The developments in the global markets might have repercussions for a growing economy like India. The Indian economy is at the cross roads. Major decisions including GST and rationalisation of taxes, addressing the bulging NPAs of the banking sector and the impetus given to agriculture sector and rural development coupled with favourable terms for MSMEs and infrastructural development might have far reaching implications in terms of growth and recovery. Whether or not the economy is likely to grow in tandem with the world markets lies in the successful implementation of the policies churned out for overall development. Despite all odds, the country remains the epicentre for all the investment activities.
Enthused by the resounding success of the earlier international conferences on Finance, Accounting and Banking, SDMIMD takes pleasure in announcing the 8th International Conference on 6th and 7th of September, 2019.

Talk on Leadership by Mr. Premkumar:
On 4th July 2019 Mr. Premkumar from Ujjivan Financial Services Ltd., delivered insightful talk to PGDM 2019-21 batch, as a part of their Orientation program. The talk focused on leadership skills and the necessity of constantly monitoring the abilities of leadership. Referring the book ‘The Elephant Catchers’ penned by Subroto Bagchi, the speaker made comparisons of leadership with catching elephants and spoke vividly about the four types of leadership - the ‘Ninjas’ who are the real executers, the ‘Coaches’ who share knowledge, the ‘Thought leaders’ wo were the astrologers of the future and the ‘Rainmakers’ who are always thinking and creating something out of nothing. His talk about leadership was highly inspiring.
At city’s B School SDMIMD, this forenoon, it seemed as if it was the day to experience business of space as virtual reality. Shri Dharmasthala Manjunatheshwara Institute for Management Development (SDMIMD) was celebrating “Foundation Day” and the invited speaker was Space Scientist Dr K Radhakrishnan, Former Chairman of Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) and Former Chairman, Indian Space Commission. Dr Radhakrishnan, started his talk, recalling memories of his first visit to SDMIMD during 1996 and Dr Veerendra Heggade Dharmadhikari of Shri Kshetra Dharmasthala and President Shri Dharmasthala Manjunatheshwara Educational (SDME) Trust and said only ‘good human beings become leaders’. Further, in his talk, Dr Radhakrishnan gave overview of ISRO’s success journey over 50 years of service to the nation. His talk was truly linked to ISRO’s vision which states “harness space technology for national development while pursuing space science research and planetary exploration”.
Talking on successful launching of satellites by India, Dr Radhakrishnan, said India launched Aryabhata in collaboration with Soviet Union in 1975. That was followed by SLV-3. Then came launch of two famous Rockets PSLV for launching satellites into polar orbits and the GSLV for placing satellites into geostationary orbits. In 2014, ISRO used an indigenous cryogenic engine in a GSLV-D5 launch of the GSAT-14. ISRO sent a lunar orbiter, Chandrayaan-1, during 2008 and a Mars obiter during 2013, which entered Mars orbit on 24 September 2014 making India the First Nation to succeed on its first attempt to Mars and ISRO the fourth space agency in the world as the first space agency in Asia to reach Mars orbit.
He mentioned the launch of twenty satellites in a single vehicle on 15 February 2017 and the launch of one hundred and four satellites in a single rocket (PSLV-C37) which is a world record.
During the Q&A, Dr Radhakrishnan said that respecting elders, peers, policies and systems of the organization is highly essential to be good leader. When asked about the success story of ISRO, he said that nurturing work culture with due respect to fellow people in an organization makes it all so that everyone feels proud. He also said that the Organization, ISRO never suffered financial crunch and the Government has been extending excellent support for ISRO’s growth. He said these are 4G internet days and in near future, the world is going to witness 7G Space Roaming.
