A campus which encapsulates the beauty and passion of all who have studied and the students who are yet to come. The splendid library in the middle of the campus signifies knowledge being endless and an essential component of human survival. The luscious trees, lake and migratory birds in a few seasons provides a stupendous view from the balcony early morning. The classroom design which is inspired from Harvard school facilitates interactive learning as every student in the class is visible to his peers and to the facilitator(who are happy to call them arrows who provide directions) himself. While every B-school subject focusses on the profitability aspect of industry and competition, IIM Tiruchirappalli is the only IIM which came up with a unique vision of building up managers who are not only intellectual playwrights but also who contribute to the community their organization is a part of by starting a Make a Difference project.
The project is an attempt to bud in the core values of social responsibility, humility, empathy so that the future business managers can grow into better business leaders. From the time of its inception, the different Make a difference project has contributed in significantly in the area around Trichy. The students come up in groups and select an area which they recognize to be in a dire need for change and have worked in various fields including an increase in employment opportunities for women, improving the sanitation habits and the use of digital payments in rural areas. The projects provided the students with a new outlook about the problems in the marginalized sector of India and give them a change to be a catalyst of the change they want to see.
IIM Trichy, although been in its seventh year is far ahead from other B-Schools due to its rigorous pedagogy (which is similar to the CFA programme), an experienced faculty which is evident from the range of competitions which the students have won accolades in.
