Management institutions should develop courses with a long-term perspective, said B Santhanam, chairman of Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), Southern region.

Speaking at a session on ‘Leadership and Entrepreneurship’ for students, organised by the CII here on Friday, Santhanam said some institutions were conducting programmes looking at immediate requirements. “It is important to teach the fundamentals and relevant topics to students. They should focus on building a long-time career,” he said.
