Dr. Uday Salunkhe of Welingkar Institute spoke intensely on the topic of empowerment through education.
To exercise leadership, one must recognize the importance of competencies. Ability to evoke trust, design and manage through collaboration, and self-awareness are some of the competencies that can be developed through crafting platforms. The leadership insight will develop only when there is a repetition of the ‘doing-reflecting’ discipline, says Uday Salunkhe.
For students to perform successfully, a balance between economic growth and human development should be achieved. The Indian education system plays a vital role in mentoring students to face the complex, global environment.
Foreign universities setting up campuses in India opens multitude of opportunities in meaningful educational programs. Bigger exposure to global management systems and MNC cultures will be available to students without additional burden of inflated costs.
Collaboration of Indian universities with foreign universities will lead to holistic growth and development of higher education in the country. This will provide a valuable opportunity for Indian students to receive quality education at home and contribute to raising the standards of home grown higher education sector, adds Uday Salunkhe.
WeSchool is collaborating with the best in the business, Uday Salunkhe states. To create an unusual program titled ‘Leadership Beyond Boundaries,’ WeSchool has partnered with Center for Creative Leadership, a US based organization in the space of leadership development and design impact.
Furthermore, WeSchool is focused on nurturing Global Citizen Leadership. ‘Our alliances with International Universities have been the key for us to understand the inter-linkages between management theories and industrial practices as followed in different parts of the world,’ Dr. Uday Salunkhe explains.
Welingkar international collaborations have attracted exchange students to India. This not only helps in making the classroom more global but creates better peer groups that interact at a different level and develop a deeper understanding of the global context.
