Chairman’s Message
“Unemployment is not the major crisis for India, it is unemployability”.

Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, former President of India

The Indian Industry faces its biggest challenge ever due to the shortage of talented and knowledge workers, across Industries and sectors. Furthermore it is compounded by the fact that only a small fraction of management graduates are actually employable.

We realize our responsibility in enhancing employability of our graduates. Business students need to have onsite practical experiences in real work environment that will enhance their learning and understanding. Towards this, management teaching at VIM reflects ground-level realities in Indian businesses. Innovative pedagogical tools and practical learning methodologies are the key features of our pedagogy. Our faculty has a dialogue with industry through consulting and training assignments.

Additionally, there is a continued focus on the developing soft skills like interpersonal communication, managing conflicts and negotiations. An increasing focus on developing an entrepreneurial mindset is also in place. We groom the students to learn everything in an interdisciplinary manner. Faculty competency development for bettering the academic standards remains a strategic focus area for the institute.

Moreover, traditional management education focused merely on pay packages has contributed to a moral crisis. It has been found wanting in preparing B-School students for coping with the responsible leadership challenges and ethical dilemmas that face managers in contemporary corporations and society. At VIM we make it a point to incorporate the core values of corporate social responsibility and a social outlook into our academic activities.

VIM is poised at the threshold of excellence in holistic business education. We have to keep moving ahead embracing the changing environment. We have put in place systems and individuals to lead VIM for sustained excellence at all times.

We are sure that with these all round efforts professional management education delivered by VIM shall create managers that are globally competitive and exhibit a human quest for equity, fair play and excellence in life.
