“Devotion, Passion, Commitment and Conviction are the virtues one should have to succeed in life and I am happy that you got them while working in the skill education sector,” Padma Vibhushan Shri A. M. Naik, Group Chairman Larsen & Toubro said to Dr. Swati Mujumdar, Pro-Chancellor SSOU while applauding her initiatives in integrating skill education with the higher education.
Meeting a stalwart, one of biggest doyens of Indian Corporate and a visionary who we have always looked up to – on 25th February was one of memorable days of our lives. SSOU got a chance to meet Shri Naik and his team that is working on new skill education initiatives of NSDC. It was Dr. Swati Mujumdar’s Symbiosis Skills Universities that he wanted to know more about when his office invited for this meeting.
Being a newly appointed Chairman of NSDC, Shri Naik is keen to scale up quality training for teachers and trainers. He showed great interest to work closely with SSOU on various fronts including – training effectiveness analysis, institution for training of trainers and others. With this, SSOU students and staff will get opportunities to visit L&T training centers, centers of excellence and factories.
The meeting that was scheduled for 30 minutes, went on for almost 2 hours! We now at SSOU are looking forward to having Shri Naik on campus and addressing young students soon!
