The Students' Activities (Co-curricular Committee) organised a One Day Management Conclave on Thursday, 10th January, 2019. The theme of the conclave was "Managing the Family-Managed Business - Scope for Professionals in Indian Family Businesses". The conclave was conceptualised to establish an industry-institute interface that would enlighten the students about the plethora of opportunities present in Indian Family Businesses. On one hand family managed businesses drive economies around the globe but on the other hand they are grappling with difficulties of moving from a one-person general management approach to a professional management approach. This is the context in which this Management Conclave has been designed. Both first and second year students participated in the Conclave.

Prof. Samish Dalal Associate Professor at S P Jain Institute and an active member of the AIFMB organisation was the key speaker and moderator of the panel discussion. In his key note address, Prof. Dalal emphasized the importance of family-managed businesses.
