The Infrastructure Committee:
The Infrastructure Committee at SCMHRD carries out media and PR for the ‘Infrastructure Development and Management’ MBA program at SCMHRD and engages with Industry on its behalf. The committee is the flag bearer for all the infrastructure related events on campus and carries out planning, organizing, and promoting activities for these events.
The Committee keeps the batch engaged in various grooming activities by conducting experiential group discussions, case study discussions, personal interviews and alumni sessions. Experiential learning and industry interactions are an important part of the pedagogy at SCMHRD and the committee works to further corporate engagements with these aims in mind.
The Infrastructure Committee organizes InfraBlaze- the annual flagship summit for SCMHRD which is an endeavour to bring to the common platform of SCMHRD various fields, policy-makers, academicians and stalwarts in the infrastructure sector to discuss the issues and challenges associated with the infrastructure sector today to impart their practical understanding of the topics and experiences to the students. In 2019 the ‘Industry-Academia’ event InfraCon was conducted which saw stalwarts across the globe grace the event and international participation of reputed educational institutes like University of Wolverhampton.
Responding to the changing nature of Infrastructure in India and the need for greater collaboration between Industry and Academia the Infrastructure Committee will organize a series of leadership talks called ‘LEAdx – Industry-Academia Interactions’. LEAdx series is the brainchild of the current Infrastructure Committee and aims to impart leadership qualities to MBA IDM graduates by bringing Infrastructure leadership from boardrooms to classrooms.
The theme of LEAdx 1.0 is ‘Navigating Headwinds of Change in Infrastructure’ dealing with transformational changes by infrastructure companies. The engagements will focus on the role played by leaders in dealing with rapidly changing business environments, creating sustainable resilient companies and navigating crisis situations.
