The Pravasi Bharatiya Divas 2017 had something for students too. A team of 55 Christ University students and over 25 from Jain University were invited as special delegates to interact with foreign participants and exhibitors for better career prospects.
Devika Jagan (19) from Oman, pursuing her first year in the Department of Professional Studies, Christ University said she found the discussion on “Nurturing India’s Young Ambassadors: Reaching out to Indian Students Abroad and NRIs and OCI students in India” interesting. “This is the first time that I have come here, and I am here as a delegate with my Indian and NRI fellow students and it is very exciting,” she said.
For Kirthana Anoop (19), another student from Christ University, the session on “Fuelling growth through disruptive innovations: Startup eco-system in Karnataka” was interesting. She said sessions like these would help in her studies and career. “We were all very curious about the event and hope to attend the session for the next two days also.”
Jain University student Bunmi Stevenson (22) from Nigeria, who is pursuing his final year MSc in Forensic Science, said he was thrilled to see Indian diaspora in large numbers.
“When we came here, we had no clue what PBS was about, but later we learnt that it provides a platform for both diaspora and entrepreneurs,” said another student B S Aishwarya.
They also posed questions to panellists about the startup ecosystem, students’ role and opportunities in various segments.
