“At Jaipuria Noida, despite the multi-dimensional pressures of the turbulent environment around, ‘excellence’ is a continuous journey. A journey which aligns us together in pooling resources of the institute as well as the people to achieve superior levels of performance and adding value to even to the last member in the Jaipuria family.”
Reflecting back on what Jaipuria Noida achieved during the year 2013, we all derive greater satisfaction in witnessing that the institute not only continued doing its best in core areas of activities, for which Jaipuria Noida is well known, but also could set landmarks of achievements on many new fronts opened up during the year. Some of the highlights are as follows:
For the first time, during 2013, students from over 17 states joined courses at the campus justifying a legitimate national footprint to our institute. Needless to mention that it paved the way for vibrant and richly diversified peer group learning.
Industry developed a greater level of confidence in the skills and capabilities in Jaipurians, as a result, started showing up for campus placements as early as in the month of October ’13. Our students reciprocated well and didn’t disappoint the recruiters. By the end of December’13 companies having diverse needs of the industry, picked up our students in larger numbers. The year created a path breaking trend and contributed to appreciable momentum in placement activities and in turn generated greater confidence in our students.
As far as teaching learning process is concerned, far reaching impacts could be made because of the initiatives taken up by our faculty and staff colleagues who devoted their heart and soul in reaching out to the last student and making them industry ready. The approach was to provide adequate subject knowledge along with outside class room interventions like mentoring and conducting sessions on general awareness, behavioural and communication skills etc. Industry oriented interventions ensured that students perform better in selections and conversions during placements.
Establishing of Centre for MDP and Consultancy was a landmark decision during the year. Conducting over 36 MDPs with PSUs and other private sector organizations within a short period after its inception, was a remarkable achievements made by the MDP Centre.
Commencement of the Ph. D. programme in association with MLSU, Udaipur was yet another highly satisfying achievement, with 10 scholars joining the first batch and with the course work already in progress.
Intensified efforts were made towards internationalization comprising of student and faculty exchange as well as visits by faculty from overseas Universities.
Publication of research papers and award winning Cases in conferences and Ivey publications by faculty members, awards and accolades won by our students in various events outside and initiatives taken in reaching out to the society outside campus boundaries truly established new landmarks in the annals of Jaipuria Noida.
Besides the eminent guests from across industries, media, academia and the government who graced the various successful conclaves and conferences, two significant luminaries in Shri Rajnath Singh ji and Shri Yashwant Sinha ji enthralled the audience with their charismatic presence and words of wisdom they shared. We as a Jaipuria Noida family of faculty, staff and students collectively share the proud moments of these accomplishments of the year 2013. Aspirations drive us as individuals and as professional to excel in life.
Similarly, Excellence is an aspiration for institutions as well. Challenges nevertheless is firstly to define and discover ’excellence’ which is purely contextual. Aligning individual and institutional aspirations towards ‘excellence’ is the second most important challenge. At Jaipuria Noida, despite the multidimensional pressures of the turbulent environment around, ‘excellence’ is a continuous journey. A journey which aligns us together in pooling resources of the institute as well as the people to achieve superior levels of performance and adding value to even to the last member in the Jaipuria family.
Year 2014 is going to be no different in these terms but we are determined to make it different in many other ways which will enable the Institute to scale up higher trajectory of growth and reach closer to a vision of becoming One among the Top 35 B schools in the country in next five years. Creating an environment conducive for Thought Leadership and Research, Industry (society) centered teaching-learning, establishing a Centre for entrepreneurship in its truest form to create entrepreneurs and promote innovation and skill development, Jaipuria Centre for Industry -Institute partnership and Internationalization are few of the identified areas on which we shall be focusing in the year 2014 and ahead. We feel confident that as a vibrant family with well-focused purpose, we shall be making a great beginning in the new year and achieve new milestones in our continuous journey to excellence!
