Communication Skill Development Council

Communication is fundamental to the existence and survival of humans as well as to an organization. It is a process of creating and sharing ideas, information, views, facts, feelings, etc. among the people to reach a common understanding. Effective Communication is significant for professionals in the organizations so as to perform the basic functions of management, i.e., Planning, Organizing, Leading and Controlling.

A professional may be highly qualified and skilled but if he does not possess good communication skills, all his ability becomes irrelevant. A professional must communicate his directions effectively to the subordinates to get the work done from them properly. With this understanding MACFAST constituted the Communication skill development council in the academic year 2018-19, specifically to engage with activities that enable a student to cater his future needs of communication. Moreover, institutions like MACFAST look into the prosperity of its students in terms of placing him in a better company where communication skills play a major role.

The department offers orientation programmes, soft skills training and personnel development activities to inculcate a culture of teamwork and leadership qualities for achieving excellence in every walk of life.
