Mr Matthew John David Hancock, British Conservative Politician and Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Further Education, along with a delegation comprising academicians visited MET on January 21st, 2013. After being greeted traditionally, he took a tour of the MET campus. Over and above visiting MET Institute of Information Technology, MET Institute of Mass Media as well as the MET World of Music and the Recreation Centre, he interacted with the faculty and students of these institutes. The students of MET Schools of Management made a presentation on the issue of Organisational Positivity and its importance in today’s world, while throwing light on the activities of MET’s newly established Centre for Innovations in Organisational Positivity. He expressed interest in establishing links with Indian Institutions, for academic and idea exchange.
The high point of his visit was the group interaction with the students and faculty wherein he sought to trace the link between academics and the brave new world the students hope to face.
In his interaction with the Board of Trustees and faculty members, he also evinced keen interest in identifying Indo-UK partnership programme possibilities evolving skill development programmes for the masses of India.
