KPMG, one of the big four accounting firms, brought learning opportunities from the corporate to the campus. They were here to offer a training and certification program in Lean Six Sigma Green Belt to the second year students. The 32 hour contact program was spread across four days beginning from 11th August, 2018.
The program was oriented towards inculcating fact based decision making skills among the students. Some of the takeaways from the sessions were using data to draw business conclusions and analysing current trends. The students were taught to handle matrices for the practical use of data.
An important topic of discussion was regarding innovation for the improvement of performance.
The uses of statistical tools were practically demonstrated to the students and they were given an opportunity to practice the same in mini-group setup.
The trainers were KPMG consultants, who shared their hands-on practical experience for various projects implemented across industries. They also talked about the challenges faced during their implementation. This competency development program was conducted using world class adaptive learning techniques. It was a mix of classroom exercises, case study discussion boards, tool usage and brainstorming sessions. Student involvement in these variety of activities ensured conceptual clarity.
The program proved extremely helpful to the students for conceptually understating the use of business information and effective use of data.
