We at AFMI firmly believe that the relationship between a corporate and the faculty does not end and begin with recruitment but stabilizes and evolves with academic interaction between students and senior executives of the company. Placement is just one of the meeting points between AFMI and the Industry, and we strongly believe that a far stronger and win-win relationship should be built between the two. The guiding ethos at AFMI is to establish an intellectually stimulating and educative one on one dialogue between students and intellectuals from both the academic and corporate world.
It is our endeavor to facilitate the exchange of knowledge between the students and industry, thereby using mutual learning as the foundation of a fruitful relationship. This exchange is brought about through various interactive activities like Guest Lecture, Workshops, Live Industry projects and other initiatives. Such sessions see students getting a practical perspective on the theoretical concepts learnt in class; and industry stalwarts gaining fresher perspectives and newer ideas.
Guest Lecture has been designed to serve as a forum for exchange of intellectually stimulating ideas between business leaders and future managers through the lecture format. The aim is to have senior practicing managers share their functional expertise with students and provide them a practical view of the various functions of an organization. The series is conducted in a lecture format.
Workshops serve as customized avenues for organizations to interact with students. Simulation games, experiential exercises, and domain-specific training are some examples of the types of workshops that have been explored in the past.
Live Projects are an excellent opportunity for the students to assist managers in solving live business issues. These live projects could either be in the form of an independent project or a part of an ongoing project. For students, these projects are an opportunity to showcase their skills in the related areas & hone their abilities. For participating organizations, it is an opportunity to evaluate the caliber of the students. Our students have been appreciated in the past for their efforts in Live Projects at: Nestle, Britannia, Parle, SAB Miller, Cadbury, Bharti & Del Monte, NABARD, Cargill and Amul.
At annual events, industry stalwarts participate and share their views on topics of current interest in management.
We invite you to be a part of AFMI through the various student initiatives described above to develop a mutually beneficial relationship with us.
