Students of ASB had the pleasure of attending a colloquium session from two eminent dignitaries from Metro AG, the renowned German retail group- Ms. Sreema Nallasivam, the CEO of Metro BSC & VP of Metro AG, and Mr. Rahul Mehta, the Head of India Operations of Metro. Mr. Rahul Mehta started the session on Entrepreneurship with a question to students on their thoughts on entrepreneurship. He then briefly introduced himself and his journey from an entrepreneur to an intrapreneur at Metro. He took the students through a reflection on personality traits demanded by the corporate from an Entrepreneur, which was an insight to budding entrepreneurs of Amrita School of Business. He then talked about the entrepreneurs who inspired him and their success secrets.

It was followed by an intriguing discussion about how having an entrepreneurial mind-set is not just limited to business owners but can be a part of every individual looking at a corporate career. He ended his session by busting some common myths related to entrepreneurship. Following that, Ms. Sreema Nallasivam delivered a session on the topic “How to be successful globally.” A thought-provoking question, “What will you do if you have 45 hours?” was shot at the students. The speaker received a lot of answers from the students, and she said that she would choose to fly around the world at that time, emphasizing how one can be passionate about one’s life. She brought insights into how technology, e-commerce, and the internet are making the world smaller and how students can take advantage of the opportunities presented. The speakers, along with the guests, made the students try out an activity called “Ikigai,” which tries to define one’s life purpose with a convergence of four areas of life: what you love, what you’re good at, what the world needs, and what you can be paid for.

The students greatly appreciated the one and half hour session for giving different perspectives on one’s life and career.
