Grooming 𝝅 Shaped Professionals for Business of Tomorrow

Through a well-crafted program architecture, we nurture 𝝅 shaped professionals who are ready for the business of tomorrow. The business of tomorrow is marked by uncertainties. New technologies, new business rules, a completely new set of consumers like Gen Z, and the onset of events like the covid pandemic make uncertainties the next normal for the future of work. At BIM, we have designed a unique program architecture to bulletproof you against these uncertainties, by making you a Pi-shaped professional. A pi is an irrational number and perhaps holds the key to combat the irrational world we face today.

There are many well-established skilling models. We are perhaps one of the first few B Schools globally to adopt this concept of Pi shaped learning in a B School to help our graduates build a foundation for life while building a foundation for knowledge. The top horizontal bar in Pi denotes the core and elective courses to provide a spread of subject knowledge across core and elective subjects to make them strong generalists. The first vertical bar represents the new technology applications across five areas of specialization, such as, Martech, Text mining and consumer sentiment analysis, Marketing Analytics in Marketing; Fintech, Blockchain, Cryptocurrency, Derivative analytics in Finance; Supply chain 4.0 in Operations, HR Analytics, Digital HR in Human Relations, and AI/ML and other tools in Digital Business & Analytics. This domain specific technology focus equips our students to be specialists in applying new technology in a specific specialization for meaningful business insights. All BIM students are encouraged and facilitated to learn Python, R, KNIME, SPSS, AMOS, NVivo, and other tool-based applications. The second vertical bar denotes courses that help our students imbibe human values, build character, personality and confidence to take on the uncertain world with a strong belief in themselves, and be sensitive to SDG/ESG priorities. Our practice courses like participation in club activities, personality building through sports, outbound leadership program, personal growth lab, and courses like universal human values aim to achieve this.

BIM has created Centers of Excellence like Financial Trading and Analytics Centre (FINTRAC equipped with Bloomberg and NSE Smart trading simulator), Real-Time Contextual Marketing Lab (RTCML equipped with Salesforce Social Studio and a host of other proprietary and open-source tools), Centre for Operations Excellence (with Fresh Connection simulation tools to create value chain experience), and Centre for SDG. Students are doing certifications on CMT, BMC, and NSE Smart trading simulation, Salesforce dot com, Supply chain 4.0 simulations through these centers of excellence. Students with faculty mentors are encouraged to undertake interdisciplinary research to build proof of concepts and create patents. Students are currently working on areas like text mining and audience sentiment analysis, algorithmic trading, predicting valuation from social sentiments. Students thereby develop a good insight into the subject by blending theory with practice. The CoEs at BIM ensure world class research, scholastic, and consulting experience in the most contemporary areas. The MBA course curriculum 2021-23 reflects this vision of BIM.
