Excellence in Higher Education

Coverage

This workshop facilitates a dialogue about excellence in higher education in order to keep pace with emerging demands and challenges. The workshop delves deep into the need for framing higher education model carefully and wisely aiming at the harmonious development of multiple dimensions of the students’ personalities besides focussing on how the entire Institute is run and, creating a world-class organization in the process. The workshop aims at providing insights into the multiple routes, paths and drives which have been created by world-class Institutes in successfully reaching the peaks of excellence. It also provides a simple and practical conceptual model of what excellence is, and an actionable guide to develop competitive spirit and achieve sustained performance. Second part of the workshop discusses a case on the Indian Institute of Management Calcutta (IIMC) which was established in November 1961 as the first national institute for Post-Graduate studies and Research in Management by the Government of India. Over the years, IIMC has grown into a mature institution with global reputation, imparting high quality management education. It has been playing a pioneering role in professionalising Indian management through its Post Graduate and Doctoral level programs, Executive Training Programmes, Research and Consulting Activities. Today, the institute serves as an autonomous body, continually evolving to meet its goals in an ever-changing business environment. Only two institutes from Indian IIMC and ISB entered the global honours list by making it to the THE-WSJ list in 2019.
