Corporate Engagement Programs

Corporate engagement programs are designed to facilitate knowledge sharing, provoke creative thinking, and challenge the student’s ability to solve problems

Disha Corporate event:  Disha is an annual workshop over 3 weekends (6 days) where corporate business leaders engage with TAPMI students and faculty and share their knowledge and experience in an interactive workshop format.  The primary objective intent is to create an opportunity to understand the challenges, opportunities, and business models from the practitioners. The event also gives an opportunity for leaders to interact with youth and also network amongst themselves. The event is also an opportunity for faculty to engage with corporate leaders and understand the industry trends and explore partnership
