Xavier Institute of Management and Research (XIMR) in collaboration with the Academy of Human Resources Development (AHRD) presented YUGMA 2023. YUGMA which is a Sanskrit word for Convergence had “Decoding Business and People - India @ 2030” as its central theme.

The event which was held at the Quadrangle of the iconic and historic St Xavier’s College, Mumbai on 20th January 2023 was widely attended by corporates, academia, alumni, students of XIMR and other top B-schools. It focused on the possibilities that could be created, by lever aging the synergies between industry and academia.

As witnessed over the last few decades, and particularly during the last 24-30 months, many organizations have challenged the status quo with their disruptive thinking and action thereby breaking the myth of a steady state. In the coming decade, this trend is likely to be accelerated in line with the growing spirit of a New and Dynamic India.

The conclave had two panel discussions, the first on “Emerging Business Trends and Business Landscapes” and the second on “The Emerging Role of People Office: Gearing Up for India @ 2030”. Key opinion leaders and leading industry representatives shared their insights on emerging business trends and the changing landscape while outlining the role of academia in aligning towards meeting the future need of organizations.

Yugma 2023 helped focus, look ahead, decode, explore and anticipated trends expected in the Indian context. In the words of Mr. Shankar Jadhav, Managing Director of BSE Investments, “Yugma 2023 heralds a new beginning and ushers in a new thinking for the fledging leaders of tomorrow”.
