The recent introduction of specialization of Business Analytics and Entrepreneurship as well as use of online marketing tools and social media have provided fresh impetus and resulted in unleashing a new wave of technological innovation and creative thinking amongst our faculty and student community.
As regards CSR and Sustainability we stand fully committed to implementing our agenda by integrating key principles in our curriculum, research, partnerships and students activities. In September, 2017, the Institute jointly organized a seminar on "Corporate Governance, Social Responsibility and Sustainability" with the UN Global Compact Network India, an arm of United Nations for promoting CSR and Sustainability.
Lastly and verily the raison d’etre of our Institute has always been to develop professionally competent, industry – ready and socially responsible human beings. The 2017 hiring of our students by top recruiters such as Asian Paints, Deloitte, ITC, Nestle, Videocon, Standard Chartered Bank etc in the first few weeks of the placement process bespeaks volumes of the excellence of our students and also of the high quality of our value – based programmes.
