IIM Shillong – As Unique As It Gets

Do you think IIM Shillong is just too far away from the heart of the country? What if I were to tell you that despite the distance, IIM Shillong depicts all the colours and flavours of India? Yes, you read it right. IIM Shillong is mini India and has people from every corner of India. We are a family here. Shillong is the ‘Scotland of East’ and we, the participants, have already tasted the flavour of Shillong two weekends in a row. The treks are really beautiful and the Law Kyntang forest is one of the most picturesque places one can visit. We are not only in the cradle of Nature here but also very close to the local communities here. We carry the banner of Late Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam’s message and teach the kids of schools nearby under the Nurturing Minds program. We have a club completely dedicated to sustainability. ECoBiz devises methods by which sustainability can be implemented successfully in various businesses across various domains. Being close to nature fills us with oneness with mother Earth. We have a week-long program entirely dedicated to sustainability. We spend time learning green marketing, green economics, green technology, green human resource management. Also, IIM Shillong is the cleanest campus in India and we are soon to be plastic bags free campus too. A proud moment indeed. We believe in giving back to the society. We are the most energy efficient and energy conserving campus in India.
