Over the past decade, companies across almost all industries in India have been changed by competition both within the country and outside. India is no longer isolated from the economic mainstream. The patterns that are emerging in business worldwide are bound to be repeated here. The year 2006 has been a very good year for the Indian business. Our markets have recovered and the mood has been upbeat. The Indian Economy, hitherto seen as a slow moving elephant has suddenly got the spring of a swift tiger. But we cannot rest on our laurels.
Our efforts will have to double up, particularly when there exists an increasing possibility of winnings. For Indian business, this involves a change of strategy, structure, culture, compensation and everything from sparking innovation to streamlining internal processes. The solution to this conundrum of this organizational complexity will have to be provided by our future managers. In order to win in today’s fiercely competitive business environment, they will have to excel at short-term execution of their business objectives, while pursuing long-term visions that create new paradigms.
At the Indira Group of Institutes, we have picked up the gauntlet thrown down by the demands of the existing business environment. Our motto at Indira is the pursuit of excellence, a fact that is evident from our infrastructure and the quality of individual candidates – the Indiraites. At the core of our philosophy lies the conviction that we must become ambidextrous, and this dynamism is translated in to the knowledge provided to our students. We look forward to a constant search for excellence to constantly strengthen our efforts and make this country a place to reckon with, in the world community..
