Management education is no longer about learning tangible and measurable skills. Today's Industry giants look for candidates who possess skill sets to master complex challenges and capitalize on emerging opportunities making them employable. Promising to train a bracket of holistically developed management leaders, K V Institute of Management and Information Studies (KVIM) came into existence in 2008 under the established shield of the KV Charitable Trust in Kurumbapalayam, Coimbatore.
Started with a noble vision of being a Centre of Excellence for the holistic development of Businesses, Entrepreneurship and Research in Management, KVIM is devoted to excellence in teaching, learning, and research, and to developing business leaders who make a difference globally. Located in a distraction free tranquil environment and greener surroundings, KVIM provides the students with a larger residential campus with more amenities using abundance of a space than a tightly-knit campus community. The convenience of living on campus of KVIM provides students easy access to numerous campus resources such as faculty and academic advisors, the library, computer labs, residence dining halls, sporting facilities, recreational facilities and so on.
Innovative Teaching Pedagogy
Upgraded with all the facilities at par with international standards, KVIM welcomes students to pursue their MBA (offering specializations in subjects like Marketing, Finance, HR, IT, Operations, Shipping and Logistics) and Ph.D. In order to upgrade the business acumen of practicing managers , KVIM also offers impactful Executive Education Programs in trending areas like Digital marketing, SAP, Retail/FMCG and other specialized need based training.
With more than 120 partnerships with national and international corporates, KVIM has built an optimistic relationship with its industry partners, which positively assist the students in their internship and placement prospects.
At KVIM, the teaching pedagogy is not just restricted to a narrow and constrained classroom setting, instead we set up ways to encourage real time conversations among the students through case studies and pre-video sessions. The approach to the pedagogy combines fieldwork, case studies and instrumented feedback with a strong emphasis on concepts and theory. In order to promote higher forms of thinking, such as analyzing and evaluating concepts, processes, procedures, and principles rather than just remembering facts, the teaching and evaluation practices are designed according to the latest learning taxonomies.
Industry Institute Interface
With more than 120 partnerships with national and international corporates, KVIM has built an optimistic relationship with its industry partners which positively assist the students in their internship and placement prospects. To equip the students with the latest trends in the industry, KVIM's centre for Industry Institute Interface arranges for elite interactions between the students and the corporate leaders of India and abroad.
As field learning provides the opportunity to develop skills and appreciate the realities of coping with complex situations in the industry, a Smart Crowd Sourcing Program is organized by the college, where regular weekly industrial visits are organized for a small group of students to have a clear understanding of the different business practices like Logistics, Financial management, Marketing strategies, and other creative techniques adopted by the businesses.
The increasingly complex business environment has raised the bars for the students to be more dynamic and innovate in their approach. This aspect is well addressed in KVIM, as the focus is mainly on developing the 4 c's - Critical thinking, Communication, Collaboration, and Creativity of the student. The impetus of every activity undertaken at KVIM revolves around these 4 aspects thereby grooming the student to the needs of the industry. One such activity undertaken by the center for Industry Institute Interface is encouraging the students to take up real time jobs in the corporate houses during their study so as to get an exposure to the diverse nature of jobs in a company.
An exemplary 100 percent placement since inception is possible in KVIM through a well-planned pre-placement training program focusing on aptitude tests, group discussions, individual mock interviews with the HR managers of different companies coupled with advanced language management training programs for the students.
From successful business leaders to corporate executives, the alumni of KVIM are well placed in reputed corporate houses like Axis bank, CTS, Karvy Consultants, AUDI, HDFC Bank,LG and many more. For encouraging students with budding entrepreneurial talent, the Entrepreneurship Cell of KVIM strives to assist every aspiring entrepreneur on every single step. Regular entrepreneurial talks are arranged to provide valuable inputs to encourage start ups. With the support of the ED cell, students of KVIM are successful entrepreneurs in different fields like real estate, stock market trading, photography, cement and paint dealership, organic farming and so on.
To discover, elucidate and evaluate new knowledge and ideas in the management domain, research at KVIM is given core importance where both students and teachers are motivated to indulge in realtime research activities. Around 39 corporate research projects on different areas such as social marketing, team building, performance management, consumer behavior, brand building have been undertaken successfully benefitting different corporate companies generating a revenue of more than Rs. 1,300,000 for the year 2016-2017. Supported and directed by the able leadership of Dr.C.Kumar, Managing Director, KV Institute of Management and Information studies is always an innovative, and enterprising educational institution for students who want to learn the real time management education with a positive difference.
