We welcomed the eighth batch of SDA Bocconi’s International Executive Master in Business IEMB program in Mumbai. The opening ceremony was graced by Mr Anup Rau, CEO of Future Generali India Insurance Company Limited as the Chief Guest. “The most important skill you need is the influencing skills. Having people skills is the most important competence. Business is like a sport. It is both science and art. The teamwork, goal setting, management, talent training, hard work, and preparation which go into a sport can be easily and successfully transferred into the business world,” shared Mr Anup, along with his insights on #leadership and the insurance industry.
The day was devoted for the candidates to learn about SDA Bocconi’s roadmap for the batch and interact with Mr. Alessandro Giuliani, Managing Director, SDA Bocconi Asia Center, Professor Dr. Shibani B., Deputy Program Director – IEMB, Dr. Anjana Grewal, Senior Professor and Senior Director, Centers of Excellence, Professor Massimo Magni, Director of the Organization and Human Resources Management Department.
