IIM Kashipur organized webinar
For the third session of the MBA Series, a webinar project coordinated by the Academic Committee, IIM Kashipur hosted Captain Vinay Singh as the guest speaker. The focus of the series is “Management from a Non-Corporate Lens,” intended to impart information to learners from pioneers in diverse fields who have gone beyond their journey to social growth.
Captain Singh is an MBA graduate with majors in Operations Management from FMS, Delhi. He also has a qualification program from IIM Ahmedabad for General Management. Capt. Singh specializes in intelligence and naval activities, with over 31 years of experience serving the country through the Indian Navy. He also commanded INS Alleppey and had the luxury of being part of the INS Betwa Commissioning Crew. He is both an Amphibious Forces and Nuclear Biological & Chemical Protection Expert. In addition, he has also been involved with the Sambhav Kadam Foundation and Ezhimala Indian Naval Academy Commissioning, Kerala. Prof. Vivek Roy, Assistant Professor of Operations Management & Decision Sciences at IIM Kashipur, opened the workshop. Captain Vinay Singh began the session by saying “Leaders Are Made, Not Born,” where he outlined the numerous management characteristics to be exhibited by a leader from a veteran’s life examples. He shared the important occasions where the soldier shows project management expertise throughout his day-to-day life. He educated the student fraternity regarding the virtues of modesty, integrity, and consideration that can carry goodness everywhere they go, which are the go-to characteristics of any monarch. He stressed how expectations change over time and how liberalization has helped society develop, but a soldier’s life is still beyond the parameters of a soldier’s life.
He concluded the session by providing insightful insights into the current “Sambhav Kadham” veteran program, which seeks to provide retired veterans with upskilling and job opportunities, also focuses on CSR operations, and creates a community for improved veteran connectivity. This program also supports programs funded by help to war causes, widows, soldiers, and families.
It was an immersive session where students’ questions were discussed by the visitor and replied using his life scenarios.
Registered 186% increase in female students
Earlier in August last year, the Indian Institute of Management Kashipur successfully launched its 10th batch of MBA and the first batch of its new MBA (Analytics) software using virtual means to get all stakeholders together to address the challenges and disruptions caused by the current Covid-19 pandemic.
With higher education institutions and diverse scholars around disciplines profoundly concerned about gender diversity, believing that gender diversity in the workplace contributes to stronger economic success and improved financial and social results, it is simply difficult to rule out that equality and inclusivity are the true measure of gender diversity. Women’s financial empowerment boosts the nation’s economic growth as a whole. Women leaders tend to have qualities that are highly relevant in the business environment, such as intuition, productive coordination and innovation.
IIM Kashipur is committed to the aim of inclusiveness and has maintained that not only gender alone, but also the commitment to inclusiveness and diversity depends on the true measure of gender diversity. IIM Kashipur has inducted 285 students into the 10th batch of its flagship MBA program and 54 students into the 1st batch of the MBA Analytics program to ensure steady growth. A staggering 186% growth rate from the last batch was observed by the representation of female students. The new batch has a fair representation of women students from 20 of the country’s states/UTs. The rise in gender and discipline diversity has come on the back of certain changes being done in the admission process without comprising on the merit of the candidates. To promote gender diversity, IIM Kashipur continued with its initiative of sanctioning 15 supernumerary seats for female students.
