Zain Goplani in TIPtalk

Team TiES feels great proud in giving the students of this institute some very productive and informative personalities consecutively over the past few weeks so that the students should move along the competitive world by their personal grooming and motivation to be a remarkable representation of Textile Institute of Pakistan. A recent example was the session of TIPtalk where the students enjoyed, shared, mingled shouting out loud with what they think their strengths are, and were influenced by the deep voice and influencing words of Mr. Zain Goplani. On the other hand, we feel ashamed on some bad habits of the students here that they were late and most were absent giving off a low strength to such a person who could have changed their lives.

Zain Mustafa mesmerized TIP

TIP witnessed a great day of this leap year on a date we wait for four years to come.

Are business schools killing the entrepreneurial spirit?

‘Are business schools killing the entrepreneurial spirit?’, Kazim Alam explores this thought on Express Tribune Business Pages by building up on the results of a recent survey highlighting management students’ aversion from venturing into the entrepreneurial realm.

KARACHI: During an interactive session held in connection with the Global Entrepreneurship Week 2011, the moderator asked a sizeable group of management students present in the audience if they wanted to be entrepreneurs after graduation.

Hardly 20% replied affirmatively. The rest of them said they would rather get a secure job, preferably at a multinational, which promised a steady income and growth.

Are our business schools turning out good employees while killing the entrepreneurial spirit of potential business leaders of tomorrow?

According to Haris Hamdani – who graduated from a private university in 2009 and now runs a clothing brand for men namely Red Tree – career counselling at the undergraduate level was more about getting a stable job instead of entrepreneurship.

“As such, there was no encouragement to be an entrepreneur. There was not even an entrepreneurs’ society at my university. I’ve heard now they’ve established one,” said Hamdani, who set up his first retail outlet at Dolmen Mall on Tariq Road in July 2010 in partnership with three of his classmates.

The recognized ghazal singer Salman Alvi visited TIP and shared with us his diverse experience and knowledge regarding the pursuit of happiness that everybody seem to be participating in, especially in professional life. Along with some conventional inspiring content shown in his signature way, he also shared with us his passion of music and its importance along with some real life chemistry that relates to music being a remedy to a mature mind.
