Imperio 2017 - Career Development with Dr. Prince Augustin
On February 25, 2017, the Corporate Interface Team invited Dr. Prince Augustin- Executive Vice President - (Group Human Capital & Leadership Development), Mahindra & Mahindra to speak on Career Development as part of their guest lecture series "Imperio". Imperio is aimed at providing opportunities for students to interact with stalwarts from the corporate world and learn and gain insights from their experiences.
Dr. Augustin talked about the expectations of corporates from the students during the summer internship programmes, how one can prep up oneself prior to the commencement of their internship programme and what pre-work is required. He made use of the clips from the movie “Dangal” to present the various aspects prospective recruiters look for in a person. He also talked about Mahindra & Mahindra’s new ventures, their RISE campaign and the Mahindra Leadership University which has been established to train leaders of the future.
The presentation was a highly interactive one as many students got their doubts cleared and discussed various points with Dr. Augustin. The students enjoyed the session immensely as it served to demystify the many unknown factors that would make themselves known once they step into their internships.
