    Gujarat Technological University (GTU) held its first meeting of the MBA skill development councils at Shri Jairambhai Patel Institute of Business Management and Computer Applications at Gandhinagar on June 25.

    In a new initiative, GTU has set up MBA skills councils in the areas of financial services, human resources and marketing management. The skill councils have been set up to improve the innovation and application of skills and knowledge of the management students.

    While the purpose of the meeting was to give a boost to these skills development councils, it was taken part by 32 top notch professionals from industries and 23 professors. Many directors from various management institutes of Gujarat were present in the meeting.

    Vice-chancellor of GTU Akshai Aggarwal said the councils will also help students get into immersion programmes in various areas. He said, “As the state is developing, the needs for knowledge workers is also increasing. Thus GIFT city would require as many as 60,000 knowledge workers.”
