The students of Apeejay Stya University enchanted with the knowledge provided during the symposium on Project Management.

Apeejay Stya University (ASU) students along with students from other colleges of Apeejay attended the national symposium on the lessons of project management in A.P.J. Abdul Kalam style at Apeejay School of Management, New Delhi. 
 
The scientists from Defence and Research and Development Organization (DRDO) shared their personal experiences with the man they all addressed as a genius, his peculiar habits and tricks for getting work done, his style of management and the kind of man he was. 
 Dr. V.K. Saraswat, member of NITI Ayog, Dr. P.K. Mehta, director General Armament and combat engineering(ACE), Ministry of Defence, Sudhir Kumar Mishra, CEO and MD BrahMos, Dr. Tessy Thomas, director, Advanced System Laboratory also known as Missile woman were some of the prominent guest who gave key addresses in the symposium. The symposium was also attended by Vice-chancellor and the Chancellor of ASU. 
 
In life one has to have some inspiration to achieve success and Dr. Kalam’s life is an inspiration to 1.25 billion people of India, the impact of Kalam was clearly visible as each student who attended the event took something special with them, “his unconventional ways of managing the project and style of man management was what struck me the most” said Lokesh Singh, a final year MBA student and going by the words of Pushpita Dey, a third year student of journalism and mass communication, “Attending the lecture of Dr. Tessy Thomas, the missile woman of India, was an awesome experience.”, the speakers had quite an impact on students as well.

 

The event came as a refreshing change from the usual ways of teaching as instead of telling the students about project management, the symposium showcased the style of management of an influential figure, whose style somewhat unorthodox was successful which could prove to inspire youngsters to manage projects in their own unique ways. The symposium ended with snacks and students trying to take selfies with the chief guests
