Symbiosis Institute of Business Management (SIBM), Bengaluru, recently played host to Rabi N Mishra, Chief General Manager, Reserve Bank of India. Rabi, an economist by learning and a senior financial specialist by profession, is a Harvard University alumnus and currently holds the position of an advisor, Financial Stability Department, Central Bank of Oman (on secondment from RBI).

During an interactive session with the management students, he brought to life the international financial crisis looming in the world.

The theme of his talk was ‘Global Financial Crisis: Genesis…Lessons…Agenda at Hand’ and he discussed this at length. In his talk, he went into detail about the sub-prime
crisis of 2008 and elaborated on how it originated and went on to impact the global economy.

His talk focused on every aspect of the crisis – possible reasons, lessons learnt and the action plan for the future.

Keeping it contemporary and relevant, he focused on how India can deal with the crisis and put forward various action plans and crisis management frameworks.

He closed his talk by urging the students to be humans first and then a manager.

Ravi Kumar, placement head, SIBM Bengaluru, said, “I am glad that Rabi Mishra was able to help these young minds understand the financial system and the function of the RBI.”

Anjali Chauhan, a second-year student who attended the talk, added, “As a management student, I was blessed to have interacted with Rabi Mishra. He is a stalwart in his field and learning from his  expertise has added value to my education.”
