With technology making inroads into institute campuses, IIM Shillong decided to webcast its first convocation ceremony on April 3. Earlier, the institute conducted video conferencing for placement purposes, thus defying the disadvantages of distance and connectivity.

Said a spokesperson of the institute, “Since many students and their relatives were unable to attend the convocation, we decided to explore webcast and reach out, which was a successful venture.”

As far as innovation is concerned, IIM S has implemented ERP system in its operations, which has made the campus paper-free, thus promoting an eco-friendly and sustainable management system.

Sustainability has always been the institute’s focus. The institute started its operations at a time (July 2008) when the financial world was beginning to crack down. With established systems across the world on the verge of collapse,
development of better and ‘sustainable’ business processes became important.

Hence, IIM S designed its courseware with the future in mind. The need of the hour in management education is to attain a balance between corporate and social welfare.

According to the spokesperson, “IIM S aims at churning out managers who can become change agents. Most importantly, the world — besides experiencing climate issues — is also facing a severe resource crunch. It is a known fact today that profits alone cannot continue to be the only aim of businesses and hence development of better and more sustainable processes is needed. IIM S aims to play a central role in such a change,” she says.

A total of 63 participants were awarded the postgraduate diploma in management (PGDM).
