  • Innovations are a way of life at Jaipuria Institute of Management

     ‘Quality before
    Scalability’ is an oft-heard mantra, but nowhere does this hold as true as in
    the business education scenario in India. At the turn of the millennium,
    management institutes were sprouting in every nook and corner of the country.
    But twenty years down the line, we notice that very few actually lived beyond a
    decade. One of those who not only survived but actually thrived – and is today recognized
    as a formidable brand -is the Jaipuria Institute of Management. Raised in the
    mid-nineties, Jaipuria Institute of Management, Lucknow was established by
    stalwarts from the domain of education from the pre-independence era. During
    its fledgling years, the management of Jaipuria Lucknow observed, studied and
    understood the dynamics of the Knowledge Revolution, and embedded this deeply
    into its DNA. So, by the time the second campus came up in Noida in 2004,
    innovations had become second nature to Jaipuria Institute of Management. It is
    for this reason that Jaipuria is today known for producing managers and leaders
    who are essentially Knowledge Society compliant.

    Frankly speaking, Jaipuria Institute of Management has come
    this far only because of its ability to innovate and keep up with the times,
    and at a very fast pace,
    ” points our Dr. Prabhat Pankaj, Director, Jaipuria
    Institute of Management, Jaipur. “Student Councils, the Individual Development
    Plan through a strong mentor-mentee programs, increasing focus on industry
    connect, taking administrative decision-making right to staff and faculty, 24 x
    7 accessibility of academic resources to students through E-learning, and
    social media tools… all such innovations are deeply ingrained within our DNA
    now. I strongly believe that in the UnCampus philosophy, our years of
    innovation have come together under one umbrella. All the four campuses are
    seamlessly integrated, allowing free exchange of ideas and events, and leading
    to unprecedented collaboration between students, faculty and staff.

    Many a time, events happening within the campus inspire
    innovations. For instance, campus life after classes was always interesting,
    but a couple of years ago, the concept of ‘Life-after-6’was introduced
    formally, bringing in a series of value added activities. Today, foreign
    language classes and guitar classes during the 7-8 PM slot are big hits! The
    ‘Midnight Reading Hub’ is turning out to be another ‘happening’ innovation at
    Jaipuria Institute of Management, Jaipur.

    The atmosphere at all the Jaipuria campuses is quite
    informal, with teachers acting more as facilitators and students being
    encouraged to think things through. With knowledge easily available through the
    internet, Jaipuria’s faculty focus more on the emotional aspects of students –
    acting as friends and guides and always keeping the learning process high on
    the  ‘fun quotient’.  Therefore, most of the teaching in Jaipuria
    campuses happens beyond the four walls of the classroom, in lush green lawns or
    on industry sites.

    Technology and this generation’s behavioral choices have a
    major impact on how education is imparted on Jaipuria campuses. This has led to
    a paperless mode of education. Infact, the latest Jaipuria campus at Indore is
    completely digitaland has been from its inception because of the lessons picked
    up from other campuses.

    Interestingly, the management of Jaipuria Institute of
    Management
    believes that one of the major reasons behind their success is that
    right from the beginning, everyone within the folds of the Jaipuria campuses
    believed they worked for a B-school second to none. Riding on its hugely
    successful legacy of innovations, the management of Jaipuria is quite confident
    of producing managers who are well ahead of their times.
