‘Siddhi Moolam Prabandhanam’ or ‘The root of all achievement is management’. This is the motto of the Indian Institute of Management Indore. However, the word ‘management’ takes on a whole new meaning at IIM Indore. Apart from being trained to be the future managers of the Indian and international corporate arena, the participants at this esteemed institute unknowingly become experts at time management as well.

Whether it is waking up grumbling for 8am classes or running to the mess at the last minute for dinner or juggling three assignments and two presentations in one night, time management always saves the day and rightfully so. At IIM Indore, there are no dearth of activities and events going on every day. From online quizzes that can win you cash prizes from the comfort of your own room to impromptu debate competitions in the main mess (also with fiscal benefits for all!), there is always something for everyone here. Want to watch a movie in a theatre but don’t feel like stepping out of campus? Popular movies are frequently screened at the institute auditorium and serve as excellent stress-busters during quiz and assignment-filled weeks. Speaking of stress-busters, the creatively-inclined can hone their Shakespearean, Shakira or Shreya Ghoshal side by indulging in the various writing, dancing and singing competitions and events that are commonplace on campus. One of the most looked-forward to events is the annual Talent Night, where groups of students face off against each other and showcase their natural and man-made talents in a bid to secure the first place and gather the ultimate year-long bragging rights. Another favourite event amongst students is DJ nights, which involve enough dancing to allow most girls to reach the coveted size zero figure effortlessly.

Of course the main reason students are at IIM Indore in the first place, is to learn. Students are taught critical skills that are needed both inside and outside the workplace and are given ample opportunities to implement their learning. Whether it is visiting local businesses and getting a first-hand view of how they function or identifying concepts taught in class in an Oscar-winning movie, students at this institute are provided with a multi-pronged approach towards effective learning. With a wide variety of courses and electives that one can choose based on one’s own interests, IIM Indore has quickly become the birthplace for the Indra Nooyis and the Vijay Mallyas of tomorrow. Supplementing the learning’s in class are the various clubs on campus, such as the Consulting club, Marketing club, HR club etc. which provide the practical dimension of textbook concepts. Despite leading such busy lives, one always finds time to celebrate elaborately planned birthdays held at wee hours of the day or catch up with friends over a quick cup of coffee at the local student-run convenience store. All festivals, big or small, are celebrated with full-gusto and infectious enthusiasm and all campus-events get their fair share of recognition and participation.

At the end of the day, it may get a little challenging to handle the non-stop barrage of quizzes, presentations and assignments while simultaneously trying to maintain an active social life and get a decent night’s sleep. Practically this trinity is close to impossible to achieve but it’s the endless pursuit of it that teaches the students of IIM Indore valuable lessons on management, regardless of whether it is management of their time, money or skills.
