Faculty Coordinators: Dr. Rajesh P Ganatra and Prof. Shreshtha Dabral

The industrial visit was organised by St. Kabir Insitute of Professional Studies at Madhur Dairy, Gandhinagar as a study tool whereby the students had the hand on practical experience of learning the functions of the departments viz production and operations, finance, marketing and human resource.
Initially the faculty coordinators had a brief conversation with the Managing Director Shri Rohit Mehta. Thereafter, the faculties and students visited the plant along with the core member of Madhur Dairy, who guided and deliberated the students with his insights. The students and faculties visited the different areas of the production catering to the different varieties viz. ice cream, ghee, milk, butter, curd etc.
After the detailed view of all the processing domains, the students and the faculty members approached the departmental heads for the question answer session. The (Manager) Marketing Shri N. M. Barot and General Manager (Accounts) Shri J.A.Patel answered the questions asked by the students in the areas of Marketing and Finance. The students were immensely benefited by the insights and the straight forward and precise answers given by them. They provided the answers on all the questions of marketing, finance and accounts which is part of their syllabus in context of Madhur Dairy.
Before leaving Madhur Dairy, the students and faculty also met the Hr Executive where the studentâ€™s basic questions on HR practices at Madhur Dairy were answered.
Thus Industrial visit to Madhur Dairy was a good as well as satisfying experience on part of the students and faculties as an attempt to bridge the gap between the theoretical learning of the session and observational learning provided at the organization.
Overall it was a memorable experience for the students and faculty members.
