Two-day Symbiosis management conclave from Friday

Our Bureau Bengaluru | Updated on September 12, 2019 Published on September 12, 2019

The Symbiosis Institute of Business Management (SIBM), Bengaluru, is to host its annual management conclave, ‘Alchemy 2019’, during September 13-14 with the theme, ‘India – From Vicious to Virtuous Cycle’.

The management conclave provides a quality platform for highly esteemed speakers from various sectors of the industry to come together and address students through stimulating panel discussions.

The journey of India evolving from an impoverished Third World country to an emerging global superpower has not been a smooth one.

Even today, as the country stands on the brink of entering a new revolutionary era, issues like widespread poverty, inadequate infrastructure, slow rate of capital formation and job creation for a population of 1.3 billion people are still holding back what otherwise is one of the fastest growing economies of the world.

Unless India frees itself from this vicious cycle, emerging victorious in the upcoming era will be difficult.

Alchemy 2019 is structured around panel discussions on burning issues on the economy and the business world today.

According to the organisers, the questions in focus will be: How should the country manage its economy in a global environment of unstable and turbulent economies?

How will it facilitate organisations to cross the chasm from being just businesses to harnessing the true potential of an innovative corporate structure, strong governance and varied culture?

How should it leverage technology to reach and maintain an advantageous position over other countries?

As part of the student fest, panel discussions will revolve around: Fading Synergies: Overcoming Economic Turbulences; Technology: The Coign of Vantage and Crossing the Chasm: Bridging the Corporate Gap.

A letter from the Editor


Dear Readers,

The coronavirus crisis has changed the world completely in the last few months. All of us have been locked into our homes, economic activity has come to a near standstill. Everyone has been impacted.

Including your favourite business and financial newspaper. Our printing and distribution chains have been severely disrupted across the country, leaving readers without access to newspapers. Newspaper delivery agents have also been unable to service their customers because of multiple restrictions.

In these difficult times, we, at BusinessLine have been working continuously every day so that you are informed about all the developments – whether on the pandemic, on policy responses, or the impact on the world of business and finance. Our team has been working round the clock to keep track of developments so that you – the reader – gets accurate information and actionable insights so that you can protect your jobs, businesses, finances and investments.

Our website and apps too, are updated every minute, so that you can access the information you want anywhere, anytime.
