Digital Business: New Frontiers in Management | February 4-6, 2016

Our Associations

organized by

IFIM Business School, Bangalore

We live in a ‘digital’ world.


We dream of a ‘digital India’.  We think of ‘digital’ as the panacea for bridging the gap between the haves and have nots.


‘Digital’ is in the platform, in the technology and in the very core of business and governance activities.

‘Digital’ is quick, nimble and progressive.  In short, business is going digital.


While industry, ingenuity and creativity takes advantage of ‘digital’ technology, the evolving discipline is yet challenging to construe. As it stands, what ‘digital’ is and can be appears as a hazy picture in the horizon while we await an opportunity to retrospect for clarity in image. Those of us who are experiencing this landscape sense are privileged to witness a phenomenon of rapid transformation. It is clear however, that there is a definitive shift in the nature of skills and knowledge required by future leaders and managers. For academia to furnish the requisite skill set that industry will require tomorrow, it is imperative that they come together to brainstorm and think about future direction of business. And the future lies in Digital.


Given the promise of the digital space in business, governance and lifestyle of citizens today as well as the growing importance of big data analytics, we believe that the gap between academic and industry thought must converge to make best of both worlds. It’s time to come together to discuss and make sense of the ‘digital’ world as we know it. Hence, on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of Convergence, the annual international conference of IFIM Business School, we open our portals to invite participants, partners and collaborators to a conference comprising:
