Celebrating 50 Years of Industrial Excellence at NITIE
2014 marks the golden jubilee celebration for one of the premier Management institutes of India, National Institute of Industrial Engineering, Mumbai (NITIE), recognized as one of the 15 Centers Of Excellence by ministry of Human Resource Development. The much revered institute was established in 1963 under the aegis of the UNDP and the ILO. Over the years it has emerged as a centre for managerial excellence by fostering industrial productivity and leadership.
At such a propitious time, the concept of Avartan has been introduced which amalgamates five business and cultural festivals of NITIE- Lakshya, Prerna, Empresario, Aarohan and Josh. Avartan refers to a rhythmic cycle of Indian music. Chosen as the name for the grand unification, it captures the essence of various events coming together in harmony to create a symphony that befits NITIE.
This year Avartan is bigger and better than ever. Continuing on its path of glory, Avartan this year hosts a plethora of events. The business festival witnesses unparalleled corporate participation and helps in fostering managerial excellence by bringing students, faculty, and industry leaders onto a common platform. Every year NITIE felicitates Lakshya Business Visionary Awards to industrial stalwarts who by their exemplary vision and extraordinary leadership have changed the course of the Indian economy. The awardees include the likes of Mr. Ratan Tata, Mr.Adi Godrej, Mr.Nandan Nilekani, Mr.K.V.Kamath and many more.
This year Avartan has gone one step ahead in its leadership of excellence and marks the launch of a humongous, one of its kind award ,Lakshya Distinguished leader awards , to recognize and appreciate the achievements of those leaders in the country who changed the course of the wind and came out winning due to their unparalleled vision and truly emerged as the benchmarks in their respective domain. In addition to that the inaugural ‘Supply Chain Management Conclave’ is all set to make a splashing debut this year , a Gyan session aimed at enlightening the youth and budding managers.
Under the umbrella of Avartan, NITIE’s E-cell Empresario will be honouring entrepreneurs who have the courage to live their dreams and follow their passion thereby leaving behind footsteps for others to follow .
