Conference Theme

  1. Today modern business stands at an interesting juncture. On one hand, it has the advantage of technological advancements and digitization that have made things easier on various fronts. It is now easier to reach out to customers, build and consolidate brand identity and leverage company presence. The resurgence of entrepreneurship and a startup boom have opened several opportunities. On the other hand, the challenges for a business have grown manifold. Owing to digitization, we have a more “connected” world in which keeping up with the market, planning, cash flow and financial management, problem solving, and workforce management have become more complex.
  2. Business administration makes a valuable addition to traditional commerce studies which revolve around trade and exchange. It explores the depths of modern manufacturing business, different operational areas and managerial decision making.The knack of managing and administering a business catering to engaged, informed and connected customers is the difference between business success and failure. Hence the need to carefully consider Changing Paradigms in Commerce and Business Education arises. As teachers and academicians who are sculpting future managers, business leaders and entrepreneurs a holistic view of contemporary business scenario its role, challenges and risk is necessary.
  3. In this regard, the National Education Policy 2019 outlines a broader framework for the makeover and reinvigoration of the education system in order to respond to the necessities of fast-changing knowledge-based societies while taking into account the diversity of the Indian people and the guiding principles of access, equity, quality, affordability and accountability. It has also been designed to meet the changing needs of the business world with regard to quality, innovation and research. Globalization and the demands of a knowledge economy and a knowledge society put emphasis on the need for acquisition of new skills by learners on a regular basis.
