“Need for Shift”, says Hemant Shah, Founder of Priority Jewels Pvt Ltd., while interacting with MBA Students at IIT Kanpur

The MBA batch of 2013-2015 at IIT Kanpur, was lucky to be facilitated by an extremely interactive session with a distinguished alumnus of IIT Kanpur, having around 35 years of experience in the industry. Mr. Hemant Shah, being one of the eminent speakers and guest lecturers in colleges like SPJIMR shared his views, on why there is a “need for shift” in industry and made the students’ think from a managerial perspective.


The area primarily covered was “Innovation”, its need, how do they do it, and what differentiates a leader from an employee. While the focus remained innovation, he also covered some of the essential topics like Wealth Creation, Branding, Strategizing and consistent improvement and improvisation of ideas over a period of time. Citing examples from the Diamond industry, he influenced one’s perspective, to think, plan and act with a positive mindset.


The students showed immense curiosity while asking him questions regarding branding, the establishment of businesses, and the perspective he has, over the growth of Indian Economy. Being little witty at times, and quite subtle in the next moment, he truly took everyone by surprise. The last few minutes, he took to make us think, about the things which really matter in life, and those are “FFC” as he called it, Friends, Family and Colleagues.
It was an honor for the MBA Department that Mr. Hemant Shah shared his wisdom with our students and guided them for a better future and helped them preparing for the industry shift which will happen in the years to come. We are thankful for his sheer presence and kind personality which makes him so different from the rest.

An Introduction to the batch of 2019-21

“ It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change. "                                   A new zeal, vigour, and an unquenchable thirst for proving oneself is what describes MBA batch of 2019-21. 52 of us set foot on the pavement of a new journey and needless to say it has been unprecedented.

Mr. Praveen Tripathi, CEO of Magic 9 (Media and Analytic)

Mr Praveen Tripathi began the seminar by giving a brief introduction about the classification of households in India. Sir mentioned about the New Consumer Classification System (NCCS) in which there are 12 grades of classification varying from A1, A2, A3, B1, B2, C1, C2, D1, D2, D3, E1, E2, and E3. He contrasted it with the old classification system in which there were 8 grades only. The basic theme behind all this classification is the life score which is assigned to all the households. Life score is calculated based on the education of chief owner and consumer durable. And the discrimination is measured by the Larenz Curve and Gini coefficient. The major drawback of this system as mentioned by sir was that the consumer durable penetration changes faster than education or occupation level. “Inside every transaction there is a knowledge, you need to decode it.” With this quote sir gave a brief about television audience metrics in India which started with Doordarshan Audien
