This post from Ghumakkad, is not on the usual physical plane of places, flora or fauna but on the cerebral plane.
It is about launching of a new course in the PGDM program where Ghumakkad teaches.
Titled 'Social Entrepreneurship', this core course has the following learning objectives:
- Respond to the societal realities and how it can create business value
- Identify the challenges of setting up and operating an Enterprise for common good of the society
- Apply inter-disciplinary management knowledge and practices for sustainability of a social venture
It is after a gap of nine years, that a new course designed by me at MBA/PGDM level has been introduced. You can click to read about previous new courses introduced while I was at IBS Hyderabad.
Purpose of this post is to acknowledge the contribution of following individuals who made it happen.
- Dr Archana Pillai
- Dr Ashok Agarwal
- Prof KL Srivastava
- Dr Sabyasachi Rath
- Ms Shree Ravindranath
- Dr Kinnera Murthy
- Dr Malini Reddy
- Mr Verghese Jacob
- Dr B Ranganayakulu
Ideas and suggestions to make this program more realistic are welcome. We would be happy to help other institutes to introduce similar programs.
