Southampton Business School is celebrating the success of its first joint seminar with T.A. Pai Management Institute (TAPMI), India.

One hundred participants took part in the seminar on Monday morning, which was organised by Dr Rob Angell, Director of Internationalisation at Southampton Business School, assisted by the Faculty International Office.

Prof Sabu Padmadas (FSS Associate Dean International) kick started the seminar, describing TAPMI as a pioneering institution in the region, and celebrating shared aspirations between TAPMI and SBS to make the world better through quality education and research.

SBS were fortunate to be joined by the Director of TAPMI, and T. A. Pai Chair Professor of Finance, Prof. Madhu Veeraraghavan, who delivered a pertinent and thought-provoking presentation on Re-imagining Management Education Post COVID-19, detailing how TAPMI are approaching the ‘new normal’.

Southampton Business School’s Prof Paurav Shukla complemented Prof Veeraraghavan’s presentation with an engaging discussion of value in the context of Covid-19, speaking on the topic Creating & Maintaining Organizational Value in Times of Crisis.

The seminar continued with questions for the two speakers, and an enthusiastic discussion on the potential for further and continued partnerships between UoS and TAPMI.

Speaking after the seminar, Dr Rob Angell commented, “it was exciting to see these two top business schools come together. The quality of the presentations and the level of enthusiasm from the audience was electrifying. I’m excited to continue our relationship and look forward to what the future will bring.”
