This will enhance the effectiveness of both content and delivery of all our efforts in 'social impact management'.

  • Reinforcing a knowledge-sharing environment across B-Schools in India and abroad through active participation.
Process of Achieving these Objectives
  • Honing current methodologies for
    1. Selecting students with social sensibility to the MBA program; and
    2. Providing to the students the required knowledge, skills and attitude for ‘social impact management’ across the MBA curriculum.
  • Collaborating with corporate leaders for promoting the linkage between business and social/environmental objectives through workshops, research and consulting pilot projects;
  • Networking with other institutes for knowledge building, knowledge sharing and peer review through seminars and conferences; and
