Management is the most significant element of development, President Pranab Mukherjee said in his address on the occasion of All India Management Association’s (AIMA) diamond jubilee celebrations at Rashtrapati Bhavan on Wednesday.

“The country needs its young people to start businesses and create more employment opportunities instead of looking for jobs,” he noted.

Sunil Kant Munjal, AIMA President and Hero Corporate Services Chairman, said: “AIMA is in the process of establishing India’s first independent case research centre to support teaching of Indian case studies in business schools in the country and outside.”

Apollo Hospitals Vice-Chairperson Preetha Reddy, who is also a former president of AIMA, said: “AIMA is committed to skilling India’s youth and improving their employability. Though 60 years old, AIMA is still young and up to the challenge.”
