The Orientation program saw an interactive ‘Question & Answer’ session by Dean Dr. M.L. Shrikant, with the new students. “Dr. Shrikant stressed the need for distributive justice in human life and motivated the students to contribute to the society by taking up unconventional careers like entrepreneurship, teaching and social services. He assured institutional support and guidance to participants opting for such careers,” SPJIMR mentioned.
