Welcoming the students to ASODL, Maj. Gen. (Dr.) Surendar Kumar asserted the importance of distance learning in today’s fast paced world. He said that it is only with the support of industry, academia, faculty, staff and students that we strive to be better facilitators for enhancing our student’s competencies. It also widens the exposure to the prevailing business environment. While sharing his thoughts with the students he said, “faith in self is an essential factor as achievements in life begins with Aham Brahmasmi, that is, faith in self.” He also added that in the present day world there seems less of a disconnect between business and ethical conduct. He told the students to turn their dreams into reality, compassion and values which are significant. As compassion and co-option are becoming essential parameters of corporate functioning. Therefore distance learning aims at continuous learning and enhancing competencies of both head and heart. One should not expect to go through life seeking recommendation and favours but built own capabilities.
Mr. Abhinash Kumar appraised the students with Amity School of Distance Learning and its various programmes including PG Diplomas in various disciplines, MBA- 3 years, Executive MBA, corporate tie- ups of ASODL, programme cycle followed, teaching methodology, assignments, External and Internal assessments, Personal Contact Programmes (PCP) and various specializations offered at ASODL.
