This is the first national conference organised by the Postgraduate and Research Department of the college. Previously, the department had organised three international conferences on the theme of VUCA, an acronym for Volatility-Uncertainty- Complexity-Ambiguity. This year post-pandemic the department has ventured into conducting a national-level conference with support from the University of Kalyani on the theme of business education.

The New Education Policy introduced in 2020 has called for a paradigm shift in the world of academia in India. The department wanted to venture into the national conference for some time and it seemed fit to base the theme on business education, especially after the introduction and reception of the NEP, 2020.
