IMS Ghaziabad, under the dynamic leadership and guidance of Prof J.P Sharma, Director IMS Ghaziabad organized an industry visit of PGDM 2015-17 students to Yakult Plant on August 5, 2016. At IMS Ghaziabad, we believe in extensive Industry Exposure through direct interaction of PGDM students with the Industry. It is aimed at helping the students in understanding the practical aspects and bridging the gap between Industry and academia.

Yakult Danone India (P) Ltd is a 50:50 JV between Yakult Honsha, Japan and Groupe Danone of France, both of which are global probiotic leaders. Yakult, a probiotic drink is manufactured at an ISO 9001:2008, HACCP and OHSAS 18001:2007 certified manufacturing facility in Sonepat, Haryana in India. IMS Ghaziabad, faculty members Ms. Surabhi Singh, Dr Mayank Kumar and senior member CRC – Mr B P Singh accompanied the students to the bottling plant.

The students learnt the different stages of developing probiotic health drink bottles. They were also exposed to the concept of good and bad bacteria during presentation by company representative. It was a great learning experience for the PGDM students.


IMS Ghaziabad organized a seminar on Brexit

IMS Ghaziabad organized a seminar on “Brexit: Implications for Global & Indian Economy”, delivered by Mr. Anup Mudgal (IFS) & Former India High Commissioner to Mauritius, as part of the Special Seminar Series on July 27, 2016.

Mr. Anup Mudgal (IFS), a Career Diplomat with an illustrious career spanning over 30 years of enriched experience, was the “Guest of Honour” for the “Special Seminar Series”. Mr. Mudgal has served Government of India abroad in different capacities. He joined coveted Indian Foreign Service(IFS) in 1984 and held various assignments in different countries abroad- Mexico, Lima(Peru), Belgrade(Yugoslavia), Brussels(Belgium), Mexico City(Mexico), Vienna(Austria), Munich (Germany) etc. His last stint was as Indian High Commissioner to Port Louis (Mauritius) in 2014.

The “Special seminar Series” was initiated under the stewardship of Director IMS, Prof. J. P. Sharma. Prof. Sharma in his inaugural address eulogized Mr. Mudgal for his deep involvement with policy matters. He also acknowledged Mr. Mudgal to be member of “Governing Council of IMS”.

In his “Seminal Lecture”, Mr. Mudgal explored the genesis of ‘European Union”. First time 6 countries, including Germany, France, Italy – jointly formed “Common Coal & Steel Community”, and as a “Supra National Authority” tried to manage their interests. Later on, the membership swelled to 28, under the garb of “European Union”. Creation of such political, economic and monetary entity, allowed free movement of people, goods, services and finance. In his opinion, internal trade was totally free within 28 countries. The European Union (EU) with its 500 million population and $18 Trillion GDP, emerged as one of the great economy in the world. He further emphasized that EU is the largest trading partner for India in terms of technology, services, and professionals from India. The European Union has an elaborate structure. It has EU Secretariat at Brussels, EU Court, EU Parliament and EU President. It has also its currency named ‘Euro’, prevalent in 18 countries. The ‘Central Bank’ is controlled by ‘Economic stability pact’, and deals with ‘Exchange Rate’. The major issue of ‘Security & Foreign Policy’ is taken up by EU Council.

The UK moved to referendum. But, the Article 50 of ‘Lisbon Treaty’ exclusively deals with countries’ exiting from EU. In his opinion, if Article 50 is revoked, then manufacturers will suffer a jolt. It will lead to dampening effect on investments. The currency may lose its value. Since Chinese have invested heavily, so their currency “Yuan” will also be affected. There are prospects of changed “Geopolitics in Europe”. The EU is the largest trading partner of India hence there are very high stakes. India has already negotiated “Free Trade Agreement (FTA)”. Mr. Mudgal further speculated that downfall of Euro, Pound and Yuan can have cumulative downfall of economy worldwide. It meant India would have tough time in trade. However, he cautioned that his assertions are quite ‘speculative’ in nature and India should not be caught napping. The session was followed by ‘Question & Answer Session’

The Chairperson of “Special Seminar Series”- Dr. S.K. Dube, expressed “Vote of Thanks”, on behalf of IMS Fraternity to the ‘Guest of Honour’- Mr. Anup Mudgal (IFS) and to august gathering. He also thanked the PGDM students for being patient listener and observing discipline.

IMS Ghaziabad is pleased to welcome Dr. Ajay Pandit, a renowned Professor, from Faculty of Management Studies (FMS), University of Delhi as part of its family.
