Furthermore, the premier management institute has always been at the forefront of organising thought-provoking conferences and strategic events for substantial student exposure and networking opportunities.
The recently organised Responsibility Summit and FRC conference by FIIB served as ground-breaking platforms in designing innovative strategies for sustainable development and roadmaps to bolster work productivity.
