Jigyasa, a national level paper presentation contest and the annual flagship event of Department of Management Studies at IIT Roorkee, has been achieving greater heights every year ever since the inception of the department. Jigyasa which is a sanskrit word meaning Curiosity, implies unending quest for discovering things around us. It is a platform for curious minds to show their creativity. A quest for rearranging what we know in order to find out what we do not know. To think creatively, we must be able to look afresh at what we normally take for granted.
With Jigyasa, we aim to build a platform for young minds from different backgrounds to come together and share their views in order to explore and understand different perspectives and ideas so as to get a broader insight into different aspects of knowledge.
Theme: Management Education in India: An Agenda for Reform
Formal management education in India dates back to the 1950s. Since then it has grown and evolved a lot in sync with the ever growing Indian economy. With India becoming a global force to reckon with, as far as the world economy is concerned, the need for leaders who can take the responsibility of carrying the country forward is exponentially increasing. This makes the Management Education more important and a key force to carry the nations fortune forward on the right path.
But this huge demand has somehow diluted the quality of education and the focus unknowingly has shifted to quantity rather than quality. There is a huge scope for reforms in Indian Management Education. The theme for Jigyasa Management Education in India: An Agenda for Reforms aims at bringing out ideas from ignited minds and future leaders of the country as to how the management education in India can be structured in a better and efficient manner.
The participants are expected to:
Develop an India centric frame work so as to suggest ways of bringing about various reforms using skills acquired through management education.
Mention benefits and shortcomings of the suggested framework.
Suggest roadmap for implementation.
Use facts, figures, examples and best practices.
Quote references and sources of information.
Come up with an original work and avoid using frameworks or models of other countries until they can be related to Indian perspective.
