Today the nation needs young and competent professionals who can perform to the expectations of the changing economy. In essence, the quality of educational institutions becomes crucial that their existence needs to be prioritised and continually improved. Quality is the key to success and as an embryo of enhancing the quality of a nation. The process component is vital in improving the quality of education; the practice includes teaching, training, mentoring, evaluating, extracurricular and managing. Furthermore, the output comprises knowledge, personality, and performance. To be effective in the current environment, professional education should provide a broad intellectual understanding of the new paradigm, newer decision-making techniques with the support of newer technologies, and work in different cultures and environments.
CIMAT is a hub for nurturing business leaders and entrepreneurs who have an impact on society. The Business School ecosystem promotes managerial excellence, entrepreneurial learning and discovery among students, which challenge the status quo and change the way business is done, and society evolves. In addition, it fosters the spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship by providing the tools, experiences and connections that will shape student success stories.
We are committed to making a profound social impact using technology-enabled education. We are also the coordinating institute for management education for SWAYAM, GoI’s online education platform. We have taken several steps to meet the vision set for CIMAT. These include hiring high-quality faculty, enhancing the quality of research, emphasizing internationalization, expanding our activities in the field of entrepreneurship, in both research and mentoring, scaling up in terms of student intake in all the programmes, deepening our engagement with the alumni, improving infrastructure, and improving administration and governance. In addition, we have a vibrant Student Exchange Programme with several partner universities across South India.
With all these initiatives, I am confident that we are on a path to thriving as an innovative institution of higher education. I am excited to continue to work with all of you so that, together, we can keep building a culture of learning, trust and competence that promotes student success and prepares students for their professional, community, social, and personal lives.Best wishes
