10.00-11.00 AMPlenary 3   Topic: Student-led B-school: A Leadership Conundrum? A student-led B-school is buzzing place where students are all charged up and have created their own high performance Culture, which passes on from batch to batch. These students see themselves as co-owners of key processes like Placements, Admissions and Learning Experience. Indeed, at times, the Student approach can be at odds with Leadership and Faculty. Students may focus on the immediate, here and now, while the leadership may think of long term. So how does B-school leadership tread the path cautiously?   How can they create an atmosphere where students are co-owners of the key processes? This session will discuss this intriguing challenge faced by the Institution leaders.   Session Chair: Dr Janat Shah, Director, IIM Udaipur   Speakers Dr Srinivasan Iyengar, Director, JBIMS Mumbai Dr Atish Chattopadhyay, Director, JAGSoM Bangalore Dr Rama Velamuri, Dean, SOB, Mahindra University Hyderabad
11.30-1.30 AMB-School Director’s Roundtable   Topic: NEP 2020 and Standalone B-schools – Structure, Opportunities, Challenges The Union Cabinet approved the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 on July 29. The new policy, which replaces the 34 year old policy of 1986, aims to pave way for transformational reforms in education systems in the country. NEP 2020 also says that Affiliation of Colleges is to be phased out in 15 years and a stage-wise mechanism is to be established for granting graded autonomy to colleges. Over a period of time, it is envisaged that every college would develop into either an Autonomous degree-granting College, or a constituent college of a university. So how should Standalone B-schools like IIMs and leading PGDM B-schools evolve to meet the policy requirements and the market opportunities?
