Guest Lecture on Industrial Relations – Mr.Naina Raj @ DoMS NITT!

When Mr.Naina Raj, the HR head at Dalmia walked in, the students of DoMS instantly knew that it was going to be one startling experience.  It is not every day that you see a tall, warm and friendly HR head with almost 30 years of experience in the Industry, take such a spell binding session.

The Guest Lecture on Industrial Relations, was conducted on 22.03.2016, at the Department of Management Studies, NIT Trichy. It proved to be a fruitful session, not just for HR aspirants, but all management students, since he talked about Operations, Marketing and General Management and taught the students how Human Resource plays a very crucial role in the functioning of any Industry.

The students were captivated by the amusing way he narrated his experience over the years. He shared, with genuine transparency, his victories, his downfalls and his mistakes, and he imparted wisdom while making the students completely enjoy it. The aura of confidence and his striking personality, definitely added on to the successful interactions during the session.

Although the main topic covered during the session was Industrial Relations, he exchanged valuable insights on several other topics. He churned out all the day to day challenges and obstacles he faced during the three decades he spent in the Industry, and he wrapped up the session, by talking about Employee Engagement, the power of motivation and about how ‘Attitude is Everything’.

Mr.Naina Raj, finally won the hearts of all students, by giving them a motivation talk at the end of the One Day Session, and by screening certain strongly inspirational videos.

DoMS looks forward to having several other GLs with him in the Future

The new building also boasts of six classrooms, of which one is a smart classroom. It is truly a gift to DoMS as we enter in this New Year.

Off Goes 2014..!!

“New Year’s Day. A fresh start. A new chapter in life waiting to be written. New questions to be asked, embraced, and loved. Answers to be discovered and then lived in this transformative year of delight and self-discovery. Today carve out a quiet interlude for yourself in which to dream, pen in hand. Only dreams give birth to change.”

The year 2014 passed by like a cool breeze of air, leaving us at DoMS, awestruck with wonderful memories that we would cherish for the rest of our lives. It still seems like yesterday when the 36th batch of DoMS had entered the much sought after arena of pursuing MBA. 2014 began like a roller coaster ride, full of fun-filled learning and lots of other festivities.

 The year started with the welcome of the 36th batch into the DoMS family which shares a bond of love and sense of belongingness among its members. The onboarding program included FIRM games which were not only exciting but also gave us friends for life. The various games helped intermingling of 35th and 36th batches which now work like one big racing team in the adventurous ride FIRM'36Thcalled MBA. It filled juniors’ hearts with warm joy to see how seniors stood up with them, guided and made them feel at home. Of course! A home-away-from-home. FIRMs were a good ice breaker.

Up next was the much awaited Freshers’ Party where the junior batch was made to feel that they were one of their kind, special and adorable. If every human being loves to feel special, it was exactly what we felt while walking through the hallway with showers of welcome, blessings in flowers from the senior batch amidst hooting and applaud. It all felt like being the tinsels glowing and gleaming in our charm and glory.

Teachers’ Day celebration were the next event in our journey at DoMS. The students performed various events as a mark of respect to their teachers. The energy that enthralled the A13 hall was immense and the sight of this event was worth watching. The guest lectures and Analytics’ Conclave- ‘Prabandh’ filled whatever was left of the first trimester.DSC_0244

The fervour and zeal to perform better and devour more knowledge increases with time and learning. The same got imbibed in all of us. The advent of 2nd Trimester brought with itself the EXCITEMENT to do better, baby yet first steps towards maturity in the life called MBA. All minds after returning from ‘Pooja’ holidays were set on taking ourselves to the next level. A sense of responsibility developed for each other. The graph of overall development went up and only up. The bond with DoMS became stronger and so did the friendship among batch mates and with seniors.

Currently in the second trimester, the 36th batch is having, what we call, an exquisite time that isFreshers'36thbatch not only vivid in terms of knowledge but also exotic in terms of experience. 2014, towards the end has filled us with nostalgia, made us realize that time is running fast and there is much to be accomplished. The mere thought that each passing day subtracts a day that we are meant to spend in the beautiful campus of NIT,Trichy makes us sad. But then, that is life, all days end and are followed by new ones full of exciting opportunities. Thus we look at 2015 as a year full of dreams, hopes and resolutions. We welcome the year 2015 with a warm heart hoping to give our best and make it yet another memorable one in the history of DoMS!

Wish you all a very warm, joyous and happy new year 2015!

The Brand “DoMS-NITT”

DoMS is among the oldest B schools in India. It was started way back in 1978 as M.E programme in Management which transformed itself into M.B.A in 1982. This is the only programme among the NITs, which is funded by the Ministry of H.R.D. Let me don the teachers’ role, change my tone, and share this with you that in the early 90’s the industry was in need of industrial managers more than managers with varied specialities because our country was dominated by mechanical industries. Also those were the times when the software bug had not bitten India and hence the stress for M.E programme during the stages of inception. So right now an inquisitive person or rather a pagalguy inside me is screaming aloud “Arey pagal come to the point I want to know more about DoMS” .. DoMS is “The most fun and merry churning” place I have found till date. The friends @ DoMS-NITT that God has showered upon me are one of my greatest assets. They are fantastic, lively, diverse, outstanding.. maybe my mental dictionary is short of words and I will have to search for some more adjectives. I am ecstatic to see such gems amongst us.

DoMS offers us unlimited scoops of ice creams in a single cone. The single cone is MBA @ DoMS-NITT. So what are the scoops? One of them is the kind of people we get to meet @DoMS. We have budding managers from north to south and east to west. We have people from engineering, commerce, arts and yes we do have an inhouse physiotherapist and pharmacists too oops!! they are our batch mates. But let me declare that while we are diverse in backgrounds, divided and separated by physical boundaries, our spirit is one. Another scoop is the kind of faculty @ DoMS. Another flavour to this ice cream is the lowest fees and hence one of the best ROI’s in India.

The first day and especially the first dinner party will be treasured in the abyss of my heart. May be i can call it the first event management opportunity that we received. Yes for some friends it was live event management. How is that you may ask.. talking to people in tamil which is greek to you and getting burgers, chicken, gobi manchs, and soft drinks was really the first live experience for some of us.(please control your appetite)

I am writing this post immediately after a fun packed session of FIRM games. I was really thrilled during some of the moments in the game. Well I will have to control my excitement as I will be having innumerable such moments, which I will be cherishing in my life. How can I mention about everything else and leave my beloved seniors. Our seniors are really awesome. They are down to earth and lend helping hand whenever and wherever possible. They have already passed the baton to us and let me assure our seniors, on behalf of the 2010-2012 batch, that we will rock DoMS-NITT and that we will definitely raise the bar which you have set and surge ahead.

So finally let me boil down to the purpose of this blog. This blog will be a chronicle for the activities, guest lectures, fun and obviously hot and interesting topics from the inhouse writers, editors, researchers and at large the business graduates @ DoMS-NITT.

Welcome to our blog. And Happy Reading.
