The world’s emergence from recession, even though slow and fragmented, is accepted by all. Every economic crisis in history has brought about breakthroughs in industries, science and technology. The recent crisis has stimulated thoughts and inspired the international community to make new explorations regarding development models. Growth and integration of a global, increasingly free-market economy have raised the standard of competition in all sectors providing goods and services. On the other hand management professionals from India are in good demand in the international market. Private sector today offers rapid advancement to result-oriented professionals. The daunting complexity of the challenges that confront us would be overwhelming if we were to depend only on existing knowledge, traditional resources and conventional approaches. Chanakya, (famous Indian politician, strategist and writer, 350 BC-275 BC) says: “As soon as the fear approaches near, attack and destroy it.” – This philosophy is enshrined in the soul of Indira Group and enlivened by our lifeblood i.e. faculty and students. We have identified this paradigm shift of managing today’s business and therefore always strive to instil, the ability of speedy decision making in resources deployed, managing diversity, searching right direction of knowledge management for the people, and finally social responsibility awareness in our students. Like the ancient Chinese strategist, Sun Tzu says “Rules of war never change – only weapons change”, our tomorrow’s corporate warriors will fight for market share and market domination by converting previous knowledge and experience into today’s competencies required for best possible strategies. Here we are committed to supplying a growing stream of well-grounded and ethically responsible professional practitioners and leaders in every field of public life and endeavour.
