Estimated to cost Rs. 332 crore, says its director

The phase-II construction works for additional buildings at the Indian Institute of Management-T campus will be carried out at an estimate of Rs. 332 crore, according to its Director Bhimaraya Metri.

Speaking at the institute’s 7th Foundation Day celebrations here on Thursday, he said construction of more than 74,000 sq. meters of the campus had already been completed under phase-I. The institute, which was functioning at NIT-T campus since its inception, shifted to the new state-of-the-art campus from this academic year. The remaining works under phase-I would be completed by March.

Under phase-II, Mr. Metri said another 68,000 sq. mt of construction work would be carried out at the campus.

A total of Rs. 332 crore would be spent for constructing various infrastructural components. Works would be started once the receipt of final approval was received from the Central government. A few more hostel buildings and construction of the Management Development Centre were among the phase-II plans.

Stressing on the importance of ethics and values, Jalaj Dani, Chairman, Board of Governors, IIM-T, said the values practised by students would outline the individuals. Hence, students should be responsible enough to carry forward the values they learnt to take the institute to greater heights.

Ganesh Ramamoorthy, Managing Vice-President of Gartner (India), said information technology and digitalisation had made a great impact on people’s understanding and mindset. The concept of change management should not be seen as a threat to employees but as an opportunity to enhance their individual capabilities and skills.

Venkat Viswanathan, founder and chairman, LatentView Analytics, said markets, teams and execution were the three guiding principles of successful entrepreneurship.

V. Gopal, Dean, Accounts and Administration, Sirish Gouda, Professor and others spoke.

A team, comprising final year students Bala Koteshwar Kolluri, Reshma Rayadurgam, Cherishma Duggina, Harish M S, Rohit Sribhashyam, Deekshitha Reddy Gagireddy, was awarded a certificate of appreciation for their project titled “ Self-Empowerment to Rural Women via Food Product Business.” The project was done as part of the ‘Make a Difference project.’

‘Disruptive technologies drive job market’

The impact of disruptive technologies on future jobs was deciphered during the valedictory session of 11th ISDSI (Indian Sub-continent Decision Sciences Institute) International Conference at the Indian Institute of Management-Tiruchi on Saturday.

About 2.3 million jobs would be generated and 1.8 million jobs eliminated by 2020 due to disrputive technologies like Artificial Intelligence, Block Chain and Cloud Computing, Kewyn George, Executive Partner of Gartner India, shared with the gathering of eminent academicians, business and industry heads, research scholars from across the world.

Companies with a sound base of products and platforms will be able to breach the market capitalisation of one trillion US dollars, only if technology professionals upgraded their skills in the competitive market, said Mr. Kewyn, the guest of honour.

Artificial Intelligence, he explained, had the ability to detect and remove falsified digital information, which could be a big menace in 2022.

The chief guest, S. Ganesh Mani, Senior Vice President, Hyundai Motor India Limited, Chennai, identified Digital Transformation as a key area of study for research scholars, with particular reference to the increased penetration of electronics in automobiles.

The shift in emphasis by the government from Euro iv to Euro vi norms warrants a major role of research scholars for enabling the industry to adapt with speed and agility, he said.

Director of IIM Tiruchirapalli Bhimaraya Metri presided over. President of ISDSI Abhijit Digalwar announced on the occasion that the 12th conference would be held in SP Jain Institute of Management and Research, Mumbai.

Around 650 research papers were selected and presented by authors from 18 countries in 104 technical sessions over four days. The participants discussed, deliberated and shared their insights on making efficient decisions and achieving performance excellence - the most sought-after arenas in today’s competitive world.

The conference also witnessed seven workshops in different domains of management.

During The International Week, a first-of-its-kind initiative by IIM Tiruchirapalli to provide its students, alongwith the visiting MBA students from a few other IIMs, a global perspective of the various management disciplines, a total of 10 elective courses were offered by 10 distinguished guest faculties from various reputed foreign Universities.

Arts exhibition

The Arts exhibition, organised by Elixir (the CSR club of IIM Tiruchirapalli) showcased exquisite works of rural artisans of Tamil Nadu, which included coconut shell and grass crafts, bronze statues, wooden carvings, Tanjore paintings, and Kalamkari purses.

ISDSI conference to deliberate on decision-making and decision processes

The 11th conference of the Indian Subcontinent Decision Sciences Institute (ISDSI), hosted by the Indian Institute of Management Tiruchirapalli, has held out promise of transforming management education in the country. The conference is being hosted by an IIM for the first time.

Over 600 delegates from across India and 15 other countries are taking part in the three-day event, which would witness 100 technical sessions and presentation of over 500 papers on a wide array of subjects such as operations management, marketing, human resources, finance and accounting, strategy, economics and public policy.

A special issue of select papers is to be brought out by American Journal of Business.

Co-sponsored by AICTE (All India Council for Technical Education), the conference has brought together practitioners from business and industry and research scholars for sharing, discussing and deliberating on a variety of research agendas, ideas, and findings related to decision-making, decision processes and performance excellence.

Performance excellance

“In today’s volatile and highly competitive environment, businesses and non-business organisations across the globe must conduct themselves with utmost efficiency to achieve performance excellence.

Hence, decision-making in all functional areas and at all levels of management, plays a crucial role in achieving results by making the best use of the available resources.

Decision-makers need to appreciate and deal with technical, cultural, behavioral, social and environmental interdependencies while making decisions. It is imperative that they adapt to and utilise various decision science tools and techniques for efficient and effective decision-making as well as promote global sustainability at the micro and macro levels,” according to the organisers.

Inaugurating the conference, Chairman, AICTE, Anil D. Sahasrabudhe called upon IIMs to provide mentoring support to over 3,000 business schools offering PGDM and MBA programmes under affiliation to university system, where the curricula was outdated.

The AICTE had readied a model curricula for MBA and engineering programmes involving faculties of IIMs and IITs. The AICTE intended to grant autonomy to business schools at three levels, with varying degrees of freedom, he said.

Induction training

There was also a proposal to make induction training mandatory for faculties to enable them to initiate students into problem solving in classroom.

Jalaj Dani, Chairman, Board of Governors, IIMT, said autonomy granted by IIM Bill has created the need for the institutions to function with a lot more responsibility and accountability.

IIMT Director Bhimaraya Metri was honoured with two prestigious awards, JGate ESS Forum Bst Usage Award, jointly awarded by INFLIBNET and Informatics, and Wiley Library Award, for the highest usage of Wiley Journals in IIM Consortium (Tier II and III).

The event began on Wednesday with a Doctoral Consortium, providing valuable insights from distinguished academicians on improving research work.

Workshops

Seven workshops, Doctoral Student Colloquium, New Faculty Colloquium, Academic Leadership in a World of Digital Disruption: Perspectives of Academic Leaders, Field-based Research, Publication in High Quality Journals, and Flipping the Classroom and Entrepreneurship have been lined up

AICTE revises curriculum for non-IIM Business-schools


Quote:
Around 3,000-odd management institutions in the country other than the Indian Institutes of Management will soon have to follow a revised curriculum framed by an expert committee. This was revealed by Anil D Sahasrabudhe, chairman of the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), on the sidelines of an international conference at IIM-Trichy on Thursday.

He said that the IIMs had been performing well with students bagging job offers worth Rs 25-30 lakh annual salary. "But same is not the case with the other 3,000 institutions which offer postgraduate diploma in management and MBA institutes affiliated to the university system. More challenging is the fact that many could not even get a job," he said.

Sahasrabudhe said that many of these institutions have been following an outdated curriculum — not upgraded for years and even decades in some cases. "An expert committee has been constituted to frame the new curriculum which would be released for all the 3,000 institutions," he said.

He added that the gross enrolment ratio in higher education had gone up from 0.7% during independence to 24.5% now. While it was expected to touch the 30% mark, employability of students is a matter of concern.

Terming the decision to give full autonomy to IIMs as a landmark, Sahasrabudhe said that the government was considering full autonomy for all management institutions as well.

An expert committee headed by IIM Trichy director Bhimaraya Metri is on the job to frame vital parameters based on which these institutions would also be offered full autonomy. "Some of the finest management institutions, both private and government, will get access to full autonomy and AICTE will not delve into their functioning," says Sahasrabudhe adding that the council has been discussing it.

He further said that management institutions would be divided into three categories, with excellent and well-performing institutions falling in category A which would get fully autonomy.

The next category would be of those placed slighted lower, which would get substantial autonomy but under watchful eyes. The third category was of those not performing well, which would be under close observation, he said.

On the quality of faculty members, he said that the faculty would be trained in teaching learning processes so that they could equip students with problem solving skills in the classroom.

AICTE had also developed nine modules which should be conducted in one semester. "Unless a person goes through this process and certifies himself, he cannot be enrolled as faculty member no matter what degree he possesses," he said.

IIM Trichy director Bhimaraya Metri spoke about Trichy as the arts and cultural capital of India.

Chairman, Board of Governors, IIM Trichy, Jalaj Dani, lauded the government for passing the IIM Bill (2017) and stressed the importance of responsibility and accountability along with autonomy. He highlighted the importance of the conference by saying, "We live in a world which is data rich but poor in insights"

IIM-T taking steps to move up the NIRF ranking

Indian Institute of Management - Tiruchi (IIM-T), which is currently ranked seventh among management institutes under NIRF (National Institutional Ranking Framework) 2017, has taken steps to move up within the top five positions in the coming years.

Increasing research output in national and international journals by way of appointing additional faculty, obtaining international accreditations, conducting more number of training programs at the Tiruchi and Chennai campuses, strengthening placements, and having tie-ups with business schools abroad, are on the agenda of IIM-T, to catch up with the older IIMs that now occupy the top five positions.

Ten new faculty members with experience will be recruited shortly to add to the current strength of 35 so that the research output could be increased.

The IIM-T will first go for AMBA (Association of MBAs) accreditation and subsequently for AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) and EQUIS (EFMD Quality Improvement System) accreditations, IIM-T Director Bhimaraya Metri told media persons on Friday.

Likewise, more number of tie-ups with management institutes of global repute will also be finalised.

The IIM-T currently has academic cooperation for student and faculty exchanges, joint research and teaching by the faculty members with five institutions: IAE Aix-Marseille Graduate School of Management; ESSCA - Ecole de Management, School of Management; EMLYON Business School, SKEMA Business School, and ISCTE - University Institute of Lisbon, all in Europe, the IIMT Director said.

ISDSI Conference

The 11th ISDSI (Indian Subcontinent Decision Sciences Institute) International Conference at the IIM-T from December 28 to 30 will witness presentation of more than 400 papers from academicians, practitioners from business and industry, and research scholars from more than 20 countries, past president of DSI (Decision Sciences Institute) Ram Narasimhan said.

The conference will serve as a platform for sharing, discussing and deliberating on a variety of research agenda, ideas and findings related to decision making, decision processes, and performance excellence, said Prof. Ram Narasimhan. Professor Narasimhan is a recipient of the distinguished OM (Operations Management) Award from the Academy of Management and Distinguished Global Researcher Award from the Pan Pacific Business Association.

The Countdown Turns Zero – IIM Trichy Goes To Its Permanent Abode

Going.. going.. going…….. GONE

The Countdown finally comes to a Permanent stop. The wait is finally over.

6 years since the inception of the Indian Institute of Management Tiruchirappalli (IIM-T) in 2011, the Institute now moves in to its Permanent abode.

At the stroke of the midnight hour, when the World (or quite a lot of people) slept, the IIMTians woke up and worked tirelessly to complete the process of shifting, helping set up a whole new world in our very own abode. The sheer dedication and seamless coordination of efforts of a large number of souls in rain, is a great memory in itself which will be cherished in the years to come, not to forget the immense promise the people hold when coordinated team action is carried out.

Words cannot describe the surreal feeling when you see a Computer generated 3D structure comes to shape before your eyes, standing in full glory, and then you get to go, live and learn in those structures, which will henceforth be important icons of IIM-T, and yet another feather in the “brand IIM” as a whole.

Many people might be able to connect with this picture, especially the IIMTians. This is a side of the Main Entrance to the Administration block. The 3D models just got real!

The Students (PGP 1 & 2) along with FPM students have now totally moved into IIM-T Campus in the month of October 2017. The PGP 1 (2017-19) batch will be remembered as the First batch to move into IIM-T campus, while PGP 2 (2016-18) batch will be the first one to graduate from IIM-T Campus, marking them as the very few batches in the entire IIM family to have experienced a transition.

Now, what does this transition mean?

The transition over here is not just limited to physical shifting of the students from one campus to the other. It has a wider significance.

Considering the fact that we live in the Age of Startups (The Age of Empires fans can relate better), this transition to the Permanent Campus of IIM-T is no less than a start-up experience in itself. The current batches of 2016-2018 and 2017-2019 have left behind the developed Campus of NIT-T full of established facilities. Here, the established facilities include the State of the Art classrooms, hostels, academic block and administration block. An IIM Campus is much more than that, and it is the responsibility of the students to bring in vibrancy to the Campus like never before, akin to any IIM in the country. Like a startup trying to establish itself and expand, the students have to ensure the development of IIM-T not only in terms of heavy infrastructure, but also build up on the legacy of the previous batches to take IIM-T to new heights in terms of learning, research, application and uphold the tradition of “Work Hard, Party Harder”. The infrastructural development will mature and stop soon, but the intellectual development in terms of learning and vibrancy will continue forever. We are happy to be a part of the initial phases of such a development.

We take this opportunity to thank NIT Trichy or NIT-T for hosting IIM-T and supporting the students for so long. We felt quite at home during our stay in NIT-T and were treated at par with NIT-T students as far as the usage of facilities and freedoms are concerned. I am sure many of the alumni of IIM-T will agree to this fact. NIT-T has been there and seen the birth and initial stages of IIM-T. I am sure the cooperation of both these Institutes of National repute will continue in future and their ties strengthened with the passage of time.

But, leave we must. We must eventually go away from the abode of the generous host, to the place which we can call our own home. There is a bit of sadness to leave NIT-T Campus, which has nurtured us for so long. But there is happiness to go to our Permanent Campus.

With the Permanent Campus in place, we can now play the part of being the hosts to several events, seminars, fests, lectures, multi-sport events and a lot more in a much grander scale. We look forward to hosting the Inter-IIM (South Zone) multi-disciplinary sporting event “Sangram” in IIM-T in a few years down the line.

To all the prospective students, researchers, academicians, guests, Professors and prospective exchange students, we give this message: “Come. Learn at IIM Trichy”

And as I, being a part of the batch of 2016-2018, spending the Final days of MBA in the Permanent Campus and looking forward to graduating early in the Spring of 2018, I can’t help but remember one of the concluding scenes of the movie “The Patriot”. The scene is quite apt considering the moment over here right now. In this scene, the Militia of the Continental US Army represented by Occam (Jay Arlen Jones) tells General Benjamin Martin (Mel Gibson) that after Freedom is gained, they would set on to build a whole new world, starting from Benjamin’s home.
