About the Summit
Today professional courses aim at producing students for technology driven markets of 21st century. The programs are built around nexus of state of art management thinking and technology, seeks to provide the students with the critical managerial skills, familiarize with specialized organizational tools and innovative business perspectives that are vital for business success in today’s highly competitive, increasingly complexed and dynamic business environment.

The business world has changed a lot. From “doing things rightly” it has become “doing right things”. Administration and assurance go hand in hand. Students join various organisations from different sectors wherein they need to have the knowledge about the organisation functioning and its domain. Today the requirement is not only for the professionals who can work efficiently themselves but can make the whole system to work smoothly by providing it the secure and healthy environment to the persons around him. For this one main requirement is to have a system wherein we can detect even the smallest frauds and defects that are affecting the organization and its culture because one person is enough to sunk the organization.

Its not important that students should learn about the ethics and frauds only after the studies in the practical environment but they can also get familiar with the same practical live cases of frauds during their studies. This helps them to analyse the real world situation and reach a solution which can prevent the fraud and minimize the risk of similar cases in the future too. Although all the situations are practially different from one another but the purpose is to make students accustomed to these type of situations, their possible causes and the feasible solutions.

Mr. R. R. Shah, Member Secretary, Planning Commission of India has kindly consented to Inaugurate the Summit.
