In All, FACULTY Speaks, Jaipuria Jaipur by admin

Despite 11 years of experience in Industry and Academia, Professor Shubha Johri brings a youthful perspective to her classes in Jaipuria Institute of Management, Jaipur. She is recognised as an understanding teacher who has the ability to communicate with students from diverse backgrounds.

“I believe that all of us, whether students or faculty, are at Jaipuria Institute of Management because we are knowledge seekers. Therefore I create an interactive environment wherein concepts and case studies are delivered, debated and discussed. I especially enjoy delivering certain typical concepts through role-plays.”

Professor Shubha Johri, herself an MBA as well as a PhD, is credited for regularly organising Management Development Programmes for corporate executives. She recently conducted an MDP on Customer Relations Management (CRM). Prof. Johri believes that MDPs in Jaipuria Jaipur are excellent ways of creating an active Industry Interface, and give much needed industry exposure to the students.

“I am fortunate to have worked with institutions and organizations – both in industry and academia – that have been trendsetters in their fields. My experience with them has helped me discover latent potential and skill sets within myself. In the same way, I feel that my classes at Jaipuria Jaipur are a student’s channels to self-discovery. The best teacher is the one who suggests rather than dogmatises; and inspires his listener with the wish to teach himself.”

As a teacher of Marketing, Professor Shubha believes that two of her favourite subjects – CRM and CB – are going to play a decisive role in the way businesses in a knowledge society will run, deliver and survive. “I always remind my students that there is no short-cut to hard work, honesty and success in life. It sounds clichéd, but it is the truth.”

A great music buff, Professor Shubha’s life revolves around her students at Jaipuria Institute of Management, Jaipur, her pursuit of melodies and playing with her son.
