KIAMS has been awarded the prestigious “CSR Top Institutes of India Award 2016” at Le Meridien, New Delhi on 24 April along with IIMA, IMT Ghaziabad, Symbiosis, IIT’s and other Institutes. The annual national level awards are presented by the reputed Competition Success Review (CSR) Group.
Dr. CN Narayana, Principal Director received the award on behalf of KIAMS. Reacting to the award, Dr. CN Narayana said “KIAMS appreciates the dedication of all faculty, staff, students, and alumni of KIAMS for the extraordinary and concerted efforts in the last one year.”
Dr. CN Narayana is working to fulfill Mr. SL Kirloskar’s vision of achieving excellence in education and is confident that KIAMS will reach the list of Top 30 institutes of India in next two years. KIAMS was set up more than 25 years back when Mr. SL Kirloskar laid the foundation stone of the Institute. The Institute was envisaged as a Centre of Excellence that focused on industry-immersed management education for managers of the 5 Kirloskar Group companies. Subsequently, KIAMS transcended into a much-aspired B-schoolin 1995 and has continued its rich tradition and built on its strong foundation under the current generation of the Kirloskar family.The CSR Award is yet another market recognition that follows the numerous accolades KIAMS has received in 2016, including the ‘Knowledge Management Leadership Award’ at the ‘Golden Globe Tigers Education Leadership Awards’ in Malaysia.
Competition Success Review, or CSR for short, is India’s premier general knowledge magazine. The magazine is hugely popular across India, particularly with students who wish to appear for competitive entrance exams (Civil Service, MBA and others). Its content includes general knowledge trivia with a focus on Indian current events, Interview with IAS toppers, Interview and GD tips and sample question papers for different competitive examinations.
CSR was established in 1964 by Mr. S. K. Sachdeva who is also the Managing Director. Its popularity is validated by many sources – as per Audit Bureau of Circulation figures CSR is India’s Largest Selling Magazine in English Among all Fortnightlies & Monthlies (January- June 2007).
