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.
