Director & Dean, LM Thapar School of Management
It is exciting times for management education the world over. Technology, geopolitics and rapid innovation conspire to craft the futures of today’s students very differently from that of generations before them. Standard curricular approaches, models and structures struggle to arm students with the skills they need at the workplace. What can be “taught” in a classroom is already available online, usually free. Recruiters increasingly look for a combo of minds that can deal with unfamiliar landscapes, strategize in a VUCA world, and passion that can galvanize teams and execute in the face of surprises and disappointments. The arc of knowledge now needs to span from “coding to classics”!
As part of a major tech university of the country, LMTSM is uniquely poised to take on these challenges. Here we realize that learning will inevitably be global, digital and experiential. Paradigms can no longer be taught; they need to be shaped. Businesses will range from global to hyperlocal. Cultural ethos shall continue to define societies and yet borders will be more porous than ever.
Located just off the Chandigarh tri-city area, one of India’s best urban locations, LMTSM’s verdant campus is a perfect setting for reflection, interaction and experimentation. Whether as an aspiring B-Schooler, or a motivated public official, a corporate executive, a passionate entrepreneur, a seasoned recruiter, a global scholar or an aspiring academic, it is more likely than not that you will find what you want at LMTSM. Come, talk to us. Drop a line; or better still, just drop in. Who knows what we can create together?
