Setting up an organization and bringing it into the limelight is always a tough task. Located at the suburbs of Nagpur, it was "almost" a mission impossible for the pioneers of Green Heaven Institute of Management and Research (GHIMR) to setup a world-class quality B-School in a remote location. However, the college established in 2009overcame all the restrictions and became one among the top 10 emerging management institutes from western India in the survey of 'Industry linked technical Institutes 2013' conducted by AICTE and CII.
"We believe that MBA is a training course not a teaching course and we start this training process from the day one of student's life at Green Heaven. Our industry experienced faculties mix the corporate culture along with regular curriculum to mould the future managers," says Anil Sharma, Secretary, GHIMR. From the words of Anil Sharma, it is evident that the institute is not only following the traditional textbook oriented method to nurture their students but also an innovative pedagogy to make the learning a joyful process. The institute has signedMoUs with Pix Transmission Ltd. and Indo Rama Synthetics (India) Ltd. to develop industrial, academic and educational collaboration. With theseMoUs, faculty, industry personnel and the students can work out a joint strategy. This will help the studentsin gaining enough corporate level experience before they finish their studies, which is one of the major factors lacking in most of the fresh graduates in the country. "We try to give them practical knowledge, so that they can validate the knowledge received in the classroom by going into the market," says Placement aide whois responsible for linking this campus with the corporate world.
Since the first batch of studentsgraduated from Green Heavens Institute at 2011, they have managed to maintain more than 80 percent of placement of their eligible candidates. "Placement is the ultimate value that students can derive from any college and we are dedicated to provide that," says Anil Sharma with a gratitude towards the all the recruiters who helped the institute in setting the benchmark.
HDFC Bank, Bajaj Steel Industries, Abhijeet Group, Reliance Power, Indorama, Reliance Industries Ltd., SAIL, Capital IQ, BSE, India Infoline, Tata Steel, Mahindra Group, Indiamart, Wockhardt Hospitals, Pedilite, SBI Life, Powergrid andJaro Education are few among the plenty to be mentioned in the list of recruiters of the Green Heaven Institute. "Our list of recruiters is a perfect depiction of the active faith that they have in us. It is this faith that has aided the institute in producing excellent managers for Future," says Dr. T. Kalyani,Executive Principal and Dean Academics.
The institute is headed by Dr. T.Kalyani who has more than 33 years of academic and 20 years research experience. She isalso a recognized Research Guide of RTM Nagpur University, and isassisted by experienced professors who havegood industry experience besides academic experience. Itdirectly reflects on theperformance of students as the subjectsare being taught by people who have serious industry experience along with the textbook knowledge. "As the facultieshave already worked in the industry theyknow that candidates need to perform well in an interview instead of simply quoting good figures from their mark list. So, we align our teaching methodsaccordingly," says Dr. T. Kalyani. Along with providing the best infrastructure and a team of industry-linked teachers, the institute has created virtual platform like MOODLE (Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment)that has proven to be handy during their interviews as well as in the initials days of work.
The institute has travelled a long way in a short time and they have done it at a good pace.However, they have never compromised with their quality check marks. They have well designed plans that will lead the institute to another level of success. Without doubt, Green Heaven Institute is one of the rare platforms that can create professional managers of 21st Century.
