- The institute received recognition at the 1st New Normal - Education Leadership Summit and Awards 2021
MUMBAI, India, Oct. 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Thadomal Shahani Centre for Management, one of India's premier business management schools and part of The Shahani Group of Institutions, has been bestowed with the Valuable and Exemplary Contribution to the Education Community award, at India's biggest education event, the 1st New Normal - Education Leadership Summit and Awards 2021, held at Radisson Blu, Gurugram. Organised by ArdorComm Media, the event recognised the initiatives and accomplishments of education leaders, institutions and organizations, in achieving excellence in the field of higher education. The award was accepted by Dr. Shraddha Sharma, Head of Department â€“ English Language and Communication, Shahani Group.
Held for the first time this year, the theme of the event, which witnessed participation from leading higher education institutions and universities from across the country, was Empowering Education Community for Socio-Digital Transformation.
Speaking about this stellar achievement, Dr. Akhil Shahani, Managing Director, The Shahani Group, said, "The International Labour Organisation estimates that India will experience a skill shortage of 29 million by 2030. This will have a direct impact on our youth as well as all industries, with the former lacking employability and the latter unable to fill vacancies that require those specific skills. The deficit will further cascade to impact India's global standing as a market and knowledge leader. Consequently, it is imperative for Indian educational institutions to develop programmes and courses that are directly aligned with evolving industry requirements, and to empower students to acquire the skills necessary to take their rightful place in the global economy.
At The Shahani Group, we are also committed to ensuring that students, who lack the financial means to obtain qualifications that accord them access to better opportunities, are able to overcome these obstacles and become contributing members of society and future leaders. We are grateful for this award as it is a testament to our continued endeavours towards building a smart and dedicated workforce of the future."
The Shahani Group believes that each learner is unique, and has distinctive needs and learning styles. Hence, their education model is tailored as per individual goals, to assist in the development of individual skills and attitudes.
The Group works to educate under-resourced students by providing them with wealth-generating skills and training through their SAGE Foundation initiatives. By leveraging a data-driven edtech model, which is a combination of data analytics and behavioural science, the Shahani Group has trained over 5,000 underprivileged students and helped them secure jobs in the BFSI sector. The Thadomal Shahani Centre for Management also arranges for scholarships and bank loans for students, to help them obtain internationally recognised, industry-based administration degrees, as well as to study other vocational courses like banking and media.
