Genes is
Nothing can stop an idea
whose time has come. And if the idea has enough potential to change the face of managerial education, it becomes a force to reckon with. One such idea was born in 1984, when Bharat Ratna Shri. C. Subramaniam, along with Prof. P. S. Mani Sundaram, the first Vice-Chancellor of Bharathidasan University chaired a meeting of leading academicians and industrialists. The concept of a management institute that would be grounded in strong theoretical inputs and would have the proactive partnership of a large industrial organization was envisioned. With this vision in mind, a partnership was forged with BHEL to create the country's first ever Management Institute that would be housed inside an industrial giant. Thus was born Bharathidasan Institute of Management (BIM) - School of Excellence. Today, BIM has many laurels to its credit. BIM is one of the most

felt an ardent need for a fast track program that would quench the need of the growing number of working individuals and the exponentially increasing industry requirements for quality managers. As a means of filling this vacuum, BIM launched its unique, innovative, flexible, accelerated thirteen month PGDBM program for regular students and a sixteen month weekend program for executive students at the Bangalore campus. Our Bangalore campus, carries forward BIM's legacy to foster the same environment of success. BIM-B's learning environment is a product of our belief that education should be driven by a need to keep pace with time, and it is made more effective by enabling the students to pursue an active learning process.

Pedag ogy
The thirteen month fast-track
PGDBM program is tailor-made to cater to students with prior work experience; this helps in juxtaposing their experience with academic and conceptual insights. With a curriculum that is contemporary as a well as classic and benchmarked with the best in the world, BIM-B has integrated learning content in ways that are innovative and enduring with time. It also acts as a platform to sharpen their swords of business acumen. The academic rigor aims at creating a strong foundation strengthened by subsequent practical inputs from the industry. This is very evident from the fact that the students undergo common foundation papers in the first two terms and opt for specialization (Finance & Marketing) in the third term after completing a one month internship in their area of specialization.

“...curriculum that is contemporar y as well as classic and benchmarke d with the best in the world…”

The BIM-B’s Social Responsibility
Social Concern Group (SCG) of BIM – B was conceptualized and initiated by the students of Batch IV. The Social Concern Group sensitizes the students to social contexts of business existence and the importance of ethical and value driven ways of doing business in an increasingly transparent society that puts industry under a great deal of scrutiny.

SOS CV

Through the SCG, we are associated with NGOs like Bosco Boys, Habitat India and SOS Children’s Villages of India. The SCG visits these NGOs quite frequently rendering service and helping in other developmental activities, providing a ‘Feel Good Factor’ for the incumbents of these NGOs. The SCG also offers consulting services to Bosco Boys on Strategic Marketing, Project Implementation and Technical Support. Such associations with NGOs help : •to sensitize the future managers and leaders on social, environmental and cultural challenges that our society faces; •to develop a sense of social responsibility among the future business leaders; and •
