Guest Lecture by Dr. Kalim Khan

“Insightful”, “Eye opening”, “Reality check” were some of the responses from the 2011-13 batch of SIMSREE after an hour long session with Dr. Kalim Khan, Director, Rizvi Institute of Management on 18th August 2011. The very unusual session started with Dr. Khan setting the agenda for the day. The session was intended to give the junior batch a realistic view of the MMS/PGDBM courses to which they have newly enrolled. 

With his polished oratory skills and thoughtful choice of words, he engaged the audience with ease and also ensured that his message got through to the audience. 

Some of the points that he highlighted were: 

1. What one can and cannot expect from the course 

2. Approach to the course 

3. The importance of the right attitude while pursuing the course. 

4. Suggested reading material 

5. The importance of self-belief and self-evaluation 

He also stressed on the importance of participating in various inter B-school events, quizzes, preparing research papers, writing articles, reading books and doing off summer and summer projects. He gave examples of his real-life experiences to explain each point in more detail which could be easily related to by the students. 

The 2011-13 batch found the session extremely useful and also decided to implement his suggestions at the earliest. We look forward to hosting more of such sessions in future.
