Gurugram : Amity University Haryana, Gurugram (AUH) felicitates the Prof. Soumitra Dutta, Professor of Management from Cornell University and a former Dean of the SC Johnson College of Business at Cornell University, New York, USA at a glittering function organized on 3rd APRIL, 2018 for his distinguished contribution at this occasion.
The “Distinguished Global Indian Speaker Series” has been instituted at Amity University Haryana, Gurugram to recognize the contributions of Indian Professors at premier foreign universities and organizations who through their meticulous work and dedication have not only achieved great heights in their professions but have also done the country proud. AUH is thankful to Hon’ble Shri Aseem Chauhan, Additional President, RBEF and Chancellor Amity University for extending his vision and support in instituting these series at this campus.
Prof. (Dr) Soumitra Dutta delivered a special talk on ‘The Changing Paradigm of Higher Education: Implications for Faculty, Students and Universities’.
While addressing the students Prof Dutta said, “India is reaching great heights very quickly and needless to say that through coming years we will break more records in the field of education. If we compare India from last 30 years where we had a image of a country of Bull Cart and snake charmers, now we are dominating the world with the best doctors and engineers.”
I just want to give one message to the students that “Make it a mission in life to help yourself to be a better person and help the society as well.” He added.
“In an era of globalization, it is absolutely essential for our University in India to give a global exposure to our students so as to prepare them to meet the challenges of the knowledge age. AUH has a strong focus on internationalization of educational programmes and also on strong industry interface.” — said Prof. (Dr) P.B. Sharma, Vice Chancellor, AUH
“It is rewarding to have such eminent global thought leaders at our campus who are themselves the catalysts of change and innovation in higher education.”– said Prof. (Dr) Gunjan M Sanjeev, Director International Affairs, AUH
