Overview

The operations club of LIBA, also fondly known as the Ops Club, provides an open platform for students, faculties and subject matter experts to interact. The club strives to bridge the gap between classroom and corporate world. It is here that students can have hands-on experience working on various case studies, both virtual and real time, to apply the concepts learnt in classrooms. It does not stop with case studies alone. Ops Club also hosts a number of events such as – quizzes, guest lectures, newsletter, simulations, and industrial visits to enhance student’s interest. This helps the club to evolve at the same time.

At LIBA, we have eminent faculty members, well qualified and experienced in various fields of Operations Management, to introduce students to the concepts of the subject.  We also have a centre for excellence in Supply Chain management, which further encourages students’ passion for logistics, and supply chain management. The current members of Ops Club are from diverse sectors that come with their own bag of experiences. This aspect of the club helps in cracking cases from various aspects.
