IIM Shillong – Where Even Sky Is Not The Limit

IIM Shillong, the 7th Indian Institute of Management to be established by the HRD ministry has shown immense growth in the past 10 years and today it stands among the top B-schools in the country. This can be evidently seen with the number of achievements that IIM Shillong students have garnered over the years. Our students have time and again proved their worth in the most prestigious corporate competitions across the nation. We have been global winners at Yes Bank Transformation series for 2 consecutive years and national winners at Tata Steelathon, Aditya Birla Group Scholarship and HUL Premier league to name a few. Apart from these achievements, IIM Shillong is also known for regarding moral and ethics as their highest priority. Sustainability is one of our core values and many initiatives have been taken by our institute to incorporate sustainable development into various aspects of our management education. We also conduct an annual sustainability conference SUSCON, where eminent speakers from various backgrounds gather and share their thoughts and insights relating to sustainability. One of the most prominent speakers in this event was Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam who shared his vision of a developed India aligned with the principles of sustainability and a major part of his focus was on education and nurturing the young minds of India. Inspired by his words, IIM Shillong took the initiative of a very special and noble program , “Nurturing Minds”. Under this program, the IIM Shillong students take the initiative of teaching basic subjects like Mathematics to the underprivileged students of North East. This is also one of the reasons why our campus is immensely respected among the local communities. Our logo and mission, which is to generate and disseminate knowledge is not only limited to classroom and peer learning but it spreads much beyond that. Located in the green hills of Meghalaya, amidst the clouds, IIM Shillong offers much more than the scenic and breathtaking views. It offers an altogether different perspective towards society and environment from the point of view of North East India. This helps us to broaden our understanding of the people living in the North East – their way of thinking, their challenges and other needs. I believe as an MBA student one cannot ask for more than to observe and understand such a diverse crowd which in future will help us to cater better to their needs. At the end, I can only say that IIM Shillong is an experience that will enable you to be a more socially and environmentally responsible manager, leading our nation towards sustainable development.

Which ABG company I want to work for

I would like to work for Aditya Birla Fashion and Retail limited. I believe the fashion retail market has a lot of scope for growth. Even Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities are showing an increasing demand for branded apparels and there are plenty of opportunities for me as a manager for planning out strategies that will help the company to serve this need. Also customer analytics being one of my major interest areas, I think I will be able to efficiently contribute to this industry by coming up with innovative ideas to enhance the customer experience.
