IMI: Winners take it all

They tell you that ‘you can’t win em all’, we at IMI say ‘The Winner Takes it All’. International Management Institute (IMI), India’s first corporate sponsored Business School, has for long been one of the best institutes with respect to intellectual capital and corporate interaction. Here emphasis is laid on academics, as well as on co-curricular, extra-curricular, cultural and sports events. Being the future leaders that they are, being the best in every field is just a part of the job description for students at IMI. Winning accolades from all over the country in every competition, IMI is making a reputation for itself.

Vikash Kumar and his team are an exemplary example of this. With their “Tilzmatic Tech”, they have stormed every B-plan competition that has happened in the last few months across the nation. Most noteworthy is their accomplishment of being one of the 10 finalists out of the 6000 teams all over India in the NSRCEL IIM – Bangalore’s “Next Big Idea”, supported by the Department of Science and Technology, GoI and Intel. Apart from this they have registered wins at B-plan competitions at IIM Ahmedabad, NITIE – Mumbai, IMT – Ghaziabad, IIT Roorkee and IIT Kharagpur. Tilzamatic-Tech is a company founded by Vikash Kumar, a student of IMI, and is currently supported by 6 other IMI students. It would seem that the product is something extraordinary, but what makes it so, Mehtab Singh Ahluwalia, one of the team member says is the simplicity which is the product’s biggest USP and is quoted as:

“To solve the problem of the commons through simplified technologies.”

Another feather in the cap was brought by our college cultural club ‘Goonj’. Not only did they bag the first position in a street play at MICA Ahmedabad where they competed against teams from MICA, SCMHRD and SIMC, but also they showed how beautifully they can portray the social problems creatively. After all, creativity mixed with some serious responsibility is a thoughtful mix.

The shining batch of HR 2012-2014 is not far behind. Vedant Paliwal and Bani Upadhyay of HR 2012-2014 made us proud by bringing home another laurel. They stood first in a case study competition organized by IIT Kharagpur. Their passion to win did not just quench there. They won a second position in an operation based simulation beating IIT Kharagpur’s team on their home turf.

Jack may be of all trades and Master of none, but IMI students are not Jacks and feel that they need to be the masters at all. After wooing the academicians, the same IMI students have gone to make a place for themselves at the winner’s mantle in sports and cultural events. The latest sports medals have been picked up at MDI Gurgaon, where IMI defeated the best of the teams to win the gold in lawn tennis, carom and volleyball (boys), and were runners up in cricket (girls) and throw-ball (girls). The joint effort by all the players and good sportsmanship in all the events, secured IMI an overall second place, just after the home team.

The list of such wins and the passion to succeed does not end. Here at IMI we are our own competition. This is what makes IMI a class apart.
