Guest Lecture and Excursions
B.Sc. – IT / CS:
Hearing new voices provides students not only with different points-of-view, but also with potential resources they can apply in future life. Keeping this in mind, a guest lecture was arranged on “Advance technology use in ASP.NET” by Mr.Rahul Tiwari from SDAC Infotech. Students of B.Sc. – IT / CS were taken for an industrial visit to Extentia &
IT Hub at Pune as a part of their curriculum.
B.B.I. & B.A.F.:
Guest speakers from industry have become an important part of educational experience for students. This helps them with an exposure to real world experiences of successful practitioners. Hence, guest lectures were arranged on the following topics:
“Understanding E-finance” was delivered by Mr. Purv Shah, from Bombay Stock Exchange.
“Financial statements Interpretation & Analysis” was delivered Ms. Deepali Kudva, CA.
Another important learning benefit derived from guest speakers is, enhancement of educational experiences which results in students getting real world knowledge, insights and perspectives. With this in mind, a senior faculty Prof. Vijay Satra gave his valuable guidance to our T.Y.B.Com. students about “How to study and score maximum marks in the subject – Direct and Indirect Taxation?”
