Railway Minister Lalu Prasad, who is embarking tomorrow on a week-long visit to Singapore and Malaysia, will address management students and tell them his mantra behind generating profit in a huge public sector undertaking like railways.
Riding on the crest of a record profit of Rs 25,000 crores last year, Prasad will for the first time speak on railways’ turnaround story on foreign soil. His experience of interactions with students of top business schools in India will come in handy when he meets 350 MBA students of globally reputed Institute d’Administration des Affairs (INSEAD) Asia campus in Singpaore on Monday.
Prasad’s visit to INSEAD is in response to an invitation from its global dean Frank Brown and Asia campus head Narayan Pant. Railways have an agreement with INSEAD for providing training to its senior officials on customer strategies.
