Spirituality in Management Education

Happiness Index is a major talking point in today’s world. Globsyn Business School elaborated on the issue of how Spirituality and Happiness Index can bring a positive transition in management education for the youth by hosting the 1st Vision Seminar, ‘Spirituality in Management Education’.

The topic of the seminar was carefully segregated into three parts: Spirituality, Management and Education. Spirituality in management, and in particular in management education, is sorely lacking in many countries but awareness of this need is gradually increasing. The national and international speakers, invited from across the world, explained issues concerned with management education in respect to Care for Society, Ethical Leadership and Spiritual Culture. We hope that this Seminar has helped to evolve the missing component of spirituality in management education.
