A Principals’ Meet was organized by Presidency University, Bangalore, in collaboration with the Career Counselling Cell, Lady Brabourne College, on 21 March 2023. The event started from 10 am onwards at the college premises.
The Meet is a collaborative effort by Presidency University, Bangalore, and Lady Brabourne College Kolkata. Presidency University Bangalore (part of the Presidency Group of Institutions) is one of the most reputed institutions in Bangalore, which focuses on innovative and research-oriented teaching. The University offers programmes to students at both the undergraduate and postgraduate levels in information technology, commerce, management, and journalism. Lady Brabourne College, Kolkata, is one of the top colleges for women in Eastern India, offering undergraduate and postgraduate courses in the Sciences and Humanities. The Career Counselling Cell of Lady Brabourne College actively organizes such meets, seminars, and workshops, and is actively engaged in conducting placements for all its students.
The Principals’ Meet brought together the Principals of some of the best colleges in Kolkata including Maulana Azad College, Umesh Chandra College, Shivnath Shastri College, and a few others, for an interaction with the students of Lady Brabourne College.
The Meet was intended to be a platform where the students of the college received an opportunity to glean knowledge about the competitive professional world which lies beyond the portals of a higher education institution.
The Principal’s Meet was organized with the vision of being immensely beneficial to the students. The objective was to provide the students with a unique opportunity to gain an understanding of the professional world and to make an informed choice when choosing their careers.
It was truly a singular event, where, for the first time, principals from many reputed higher educational institutions of Kolkata came together with the purpose of sharing their views and vision – gleaned from years of academic and administrative experience in higher education – with the purpose of orienting students towards placements.
