Director’s Message - Dr. Ajit Parulekar
Learning Never Stops at GIM’ defines the ethos of the GIM PGDM programs – that learning at GIM is a holistic continuous process. Out of class activities like student clubs; experience of living on a diverse campus interacting with students from all states of the country, different academic disciplines, varied religious backgrounds; a good measure of exposure to international students through student exchange programs as well as the India immersion programs GIM conducts for students from the United States, Belgium and Poland; the uniqueness of GIM being the only campus in India that has a capella choir, a rock band, a theatre group, a film, and photography group and several other such interesting opportunities for experiential learning; being part of GIMs much appreciated and awarded social sensitivity and community engagement program called Give Goa and several other such opportunities of holistic learning than complement our rigorous classroom-based programs. We are forging ahead in our journey and earning recognition for our progress. During 2018-19, we earned our first International accreditation SAQS which is modeled on the EFMD Equis accreditation. We are proud to be an accredited Institution and look forward to work with similar Institutions in South Asia. We continue our journey for other International accreditations.
After the immense success of our Health Care Management program and Big Data Analytics program, we introduced our fourth full-time PGDM program in 2020; a two-year program in new-age Banking, Financial Services & Insurance. This sector is the fastest-growing sector of economy and we feel that this program will provide an opportunity for GIM to contribute to talent required for economy of the country and provide a good career path to our students. We have worked with highly reputed organisations and conceptualised a curriculum with significant exposure to real-life practices and the concept of new-age banking, technology, and regulatory framework. We also introduced the Fellow Program in Management last year as part of our endeavour to make GIM a research-focused institute.
We continue to have excellent placement records and alumni occupying prestigious positions as executives and entrepreneurs. Activities in our Atal Incubation Centre are broadening and deepening. Our first cohort was of 6 start-ups and have started admitting the second cohort of start-ups this year. The GIM campus is a green campus and this year we continued efforts to sensitize students and faculty about sustainability, work toward making GIM a zero-waste campus and also have a substantial portion of our power needs to be met through solar energy.
I welcome students joining 2021-2023 batch and trust that you will have a fruitful and enjoyable two years as well as leave your mark on the Institute.
