The World of Financial Analytics at JKLU……….Aka, Big Data, data Science and Business Analytics

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high, ……
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection, ……
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into the dreary desert sand of dead habits; ……

~ Rabindranath Tagore

The above lines by Nobel Laureate Guru Rabindranath Tagore aptly sum up the current trend in management education worldwide – India, being no exception. Big Data, Data Science and Business Analytics has taken the globe by storm. According to IBM, “every day, we create 2.5 quintillion bytes of data — so much that 90% of the data in the world today has been created in the last two years alone. This data comes from everywhere: sensors used to gather climate information, posts to social media sites, digital pictures and videos, purchase transaction records, and cell phone GPS signals to name a few. This is big data”. JK Lakshmipat University, best MBA University in Jaipur and having best private engineering college in Jaipur has two constituents – Institute of Management and Institute of Engineering which hold a gamut of year round activities. These too, generate a lot of data which contributes to this big data ocean. Continue reading

Role of Mechanical Engineering in ‘Make In India’

Mechanical Engineering is one of the basic branches of engineering and its fundamental principles are used in the design, development and construction of nearly all of the physical devices and systems we see around us including but not limited to automobiles, machines in all kind of factories, machinery used in building construction, road construction, agriculture etc. Mechanical engineers are also involved with the design, construction and operations of all kinds of machinery. They conceptualize design for any product to be manufactured. They also develop, test and manufacture the state of the art machinery.

Manufacturing sector encompasses a set of industries to make or produce anything in a factory and therefore, it requires a great deal of specialized knowledge.  Mechanical engineers are often referred as manufacturing engineers also as they are recruited by all kinds of companies which manufacture a variety of machines, robotics and other equipment. The mechanical engineers are normally responsible for the design, selection of materials, specifications and the development of production processes and equipment.  Responsibility for plant layout, production planning and control, as well as plant maintenance is also a major job responsibility that mechanical engineers undertake.

Industry-Institute Interface: Education beyond Boundaries

As per the Annual Status of Higher Education (ASHE) report 2016 from CII, the Draft National Education policy 2016 has been conceptualized to be a response to the main challenges that exist in the education sector in India. One of the main goals of this policy is to align higher education with skill development objectives, to facilitate the acquisition of technical and vocational skills that enhance employability. In this era of growing number of private/self-financed higher educational Institutes, the challenges for this Country are also changing its shape. The challenges are to engage the so-called trained youth in the employment matching to their expectation as per their qualification.

To match formal education with employability, a good interface between Industries and Institutes is required and it would need active participation from both. The efforts may be in the form of fruitful internships, flexible curriculum permitting students to work at industries in final year, industry visits, and faculty recharge programs at the industries, joint workshops, training programs, conferences, talks, curriculum development, etc. Continue reading

Scope of Computer Science Engineering: Specialization in Enterprise IT

In today’s enterprise IT scenario, industries and academicians have been talking about skill gaps and have been categorically coining word “unemployable engineers”. When a student takes admission in Computer Science Engineering or Electronics & Communication Engineering or any other branch, he needs to understand basic science courses, understand all engineering branches as they are tightly coupled with each other, courses related to core discipline in which they are fascinated with and would be drawing their career graph, some management courses and humanities courses to be called and recognized as “Holistic Engineer”. Industry professionals also support and strongly advocate these courses to be part of curriculum.

But the demand of Industry, particularly in Technology sector today is readily employable workforce. This industry is partially product driven and majorly service driven. After adoption of technology by client, business is dependent on service. Certifications are the means to equip oneself with know-how of product and technologies related to that product adopted by wide client-base. Continue reading

Is it easy for India to become a cashless economy?

Cashless economy has become a buzzword after the Modi’s Government announcement of demonetization exercise on Nov. 8th to curb black money from Indian economy.

Cashless doesn’t mean ‘without cash economy’ rather it means least or less cash into economy. It is a step towards the digital economy because it ensures that the digital fingerprints of all the transactions are available.

India has one of the highest ratios of cash to GDP in the world. Last year, 78% of all consumers’ payments in India were made by cash, whereas in the developed world like US /UK, only 20 to 25 % payments were made that way. According to a 2014 study by Tufts University, The cash operations cost of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) and commercial banks is about Rs. 21, 000 crore annually. Cash economy facilitates the black money, fake money, money laundering, drug trading, tax evasion, no transparency, corruption, etc. Certainly, cash economy has its benefits such as it empowers unbanked families, easy transaction, acts as a store of value, no transaction fee, and no records of big data and provides safety from hackers and online transacting companies. In the present era, the benefits are losing relevance and cashless is a way for honest, transparent, safe and secure society. In such scenario cashless economy is a boon for Indian economy.

What will make a Successful MBA?

In the build up to admissions for various management programs, it is an opportune time to reflect on who the management institutions are looking for to join us next year. Every university/institution is extremely proud of its students and look for a few distinctive traits that are common to all individuals within the MBA cohort.

Intellectual ability and a good academic track record are essential, of course, but as the institutions select the Class of 2017, there are three attributes that the Admissions Committee look for when selecting candidates for the MBA.

 Leadership

First and foremost, the institutions look for candidates who exhibit strong leadership potential throughout their academic and professional experience. This can take many forms: being selected for a leadership program at work (for the candidates who have work experience), launching a new business venture, captaining a sports team or leading a voluntary project – anything which demonstrates your ability to lead, inspire and motivate others. MBAs have the leadership potential not just to succeed in business, but to create new opportunities and be trailblazers for others. Today management institutions want candidates with the drive and ambition to change the world for the better. Continue reading
