LIBA regularly organizes various conferences in order to get the students involved in serious discussion and analysis of critical issues of current relevance to the corporate world. They also get an opportunity to interact with prominent corporate leaders and eminent academicians. The conferences engage young talent to confront challenges innate to their personal development and professional career. Initiated and organized by the students themselves, these conferences constitute the most resourceful means of acquiring managerial experience and expertise outside the academic curricula.
Loyola Institute of Business Administration (LIBA) has been organizing various programs and activities to promote business ethics and good corporate governance among its stakeholders, particularly the students.
One such program is the annual Business Ethics Conference (BEACON) which we have been organizing since 2007.
From 2007, BEACON has been deliberating on various issues including inclusive growth and sustainability in all spheres of management.
In the present business environment where the decisions of few individuals affect the fate of the business, leadership plays an important role in shaping the future of the organization. In this regard, “Leadership and Ethics for the New India”, the theme of the conference, has been chosen consciously, to explore the latest thoughts amongst corporate leaders in shaping ethics centered leadership for the new India.
