|From Director's Desk|
A truly educated professional is one whose understanding has been enlightened and developed. As they rightly believe, such a professional stands out because of his capacity to think clearly and to awaken intellectual curiosity. We, Late Narayan Meghaji Lokhande-Maharashtra Institute of Labour Studies (LNML MILS), established in July, 1947, are one of India's oldest Labour Management Institute. This Institute is unique, because it is not purely a management institute but it is a labour management institute. Institute's uniqueness lies in the fact that it offers students both the perspectives - that of the labour as well as that of the management. Our students are equally comfortable in interacting with the management of an organisation as they are with discussing labour problems with trade unions. We provide a comprehensive study for students pursuing a career in Labour Management / Industrial Relations and Human Resource Development. Our Post graduation Program - The Master of Labour Studies is a course that is one of its kind. A perfect blend of business acumen and fundamental theoretical knowledge. It involves various activities such as seminars, book reviews, role plays etc. that help one to develop his personality during this Two year course.
Aiming at producing thoroughly capable professionals, we also make them go through numerous observational visits and placements at corporate offices and industries. This exposure is not just limited to private sector but also includes visits to various Government bodies like Industrial and Labour Court, Office of the Commissioner of Labour, Employees' State Insurance Corporation, Welfare Commissioner and Trade Unions. This all round knowledge base helps to transform students into professionals and prepares them to face the volatile and uncertain business environment that we operate in. On this occasion I take the privilege to introduce to the industry an enthusiastic batch of 2016-17 which has the exuberance of youth and a touch of industry exposure. This class stands for Diligence, Dedication and Determination. We believe in our students like we believe in ourselves. I would like to seize this opportunity and invite one and all to the institute to gauge and encourage our budding talent. I wish all of them a very bright and successful future ahead as they enter into their professional careers following their post graduation.
