Students of any domain, more so business management, need to maintain a high degree of knowledge of current events and their implications. This helps them to prepare for their placement selection processes but the more important objective is to relate academic lessons to real life events. If this is done on an on-going basis, from an early stag and habitually, then it leads to better aware professionals.
The importance of imbibing such knowledge is obvious; but the ones who take on the responsibility of the dissemination are quite definitely the heroes. Most premier institutions leave this initiative to the student body in order to develop capabilities within students and also so that the propagation doesn’t appear to be one-way instruction. Working selflessly for the continuous improvement of peers, this set of student organizers attempts to understand student requirements, designs the tools required for gathering information, edits the same for consumption, and figures out the dissemination mechanisms that maximize effectiveness.
At FLAME University ‘Dare2Discuss’ (D2D) is one such student-led forum that enhances peer-to-peer learning and knowledge sharing experience. It also acts as the bridge between students and corporates. The group organizes discussions, debates, case study analysis, guest talks and other events that discuss threadbare issues important to the business world. D2D was formed in December 2019 and in its short existence has already conducted five sessions on various current topics.
The six students behind D2D from the FLAME MBA Class are:
