Faculty

“A teacher should not only encourage students to participate, but should give them the confidence to come to the forefront and lead.”

It’s hardly a surprise that Professor Sainy, who has taught marketing and brand management extensively, understood the current trend in educational methods early on. “The learning environment has changed from being teacher-centric to student-centric,” she believes, “and a teacher should not only encourage students to participate, but should give them the confidence to come to the forefront and lead.”

Assistant Professor at Jaipuria Institute of Management, Indore, Prof Sainy’s credentials are impressive. She holds a Ph.D from Vikram Ujjain University (M.P) on ‘The Effect of Service Quality on Customer Loyalty in Retail Outlets.’ Over the past 9 years, her classes have included marketing management, consumer behavior, rural marketing and branding.

Professor Sainy finds that Jaipuria Institute gives her “immense opportunities for growth both as a teacher and researcher”. She mixes theoretical inputs with industry examples in class discussions. This strategy, she feels, keeps both herself and her class motivated.

Jaipuria Indore explores the link between spirituality and management with famed author achal rangaswamy

In its continuous mission to bring a wide spectrum of opinions and perspectives to its student managers, Jaipuria Institute of Management, Indore invited Achal Rangaswamy, the celebrated author of books like ‘Beyond the Uncharted Landscape’ and ‘Time is Money’, on the 1st of September 2012. With his trademark wit, Achal Rangaswamy brought in a profound perspective to management in his address to the audience at Jaipuria Indore.

“When I passed out of St. Stephen’s college in New Delhi, I just wanted to ride a ‘Bullet’. I went about asking people, ‘Will you give me a Bullet to ride?’ till a British guy – the sales head of a multinational company – said ‘I will give you a Bullet, but you’ll have to work!’ The deal thus struck, he gave me a Bullet to ride, a salary of Rs. 200 per month, and an assignment in the interiors of Rajasthan. I met all kinds of people, visited many places and enjoyed my work as well. I did 200,000 kms on that Bullet.”

Achal Rangaswamy has captured his 33 years of rich work experience – 22 of them as the Head of Sales and Marketing – in a book titled ‘Beyond the Uncharted Landscape’.

“Had I named my book conventionally, I would’ve actually called it ‘What Indian B-Schools Need to Teach’. This book is co-published with the Sri Aurobindo Society, Pondicherry. They felt that despite being a management book, it has a highly spiritual current’.

Achal Rangaswamy strongly believes that Sales or Marketing Heads today focus too much on their watch, laptop or mobile. He asserts that this is not how leaders behave; leadership is not about demonstrating how much you can do by yourself, it’s about motivating and overseeing others to get the job done.

“A company is like a machine, and a leader is a component of it just like many others. It is not ‘where’ you are in the organisation, but ‘what’ you are to the organisation that matters; and once you realise this, you will give your best.”
Achal encouraged the youngsters of Jaipuria Indore to always follow the calling of their heart.

Chisel

Jaipuria’s IMP – Chisel teams carve out some glowing reports.

Jaipuria Institute of Management students participating in the Industry Mentorship Program (IMP – Chisel) have carved out an excellent name for themselves among employers.

Under the IMP – Chisel program, students interact directly with industry, working on live projects for about 15 days per trimester along with peer, industry and faculty mentors.

This direct hands-on experience in industry allows students to put their classroom learning to the test with practical experience, helping turn them into management professionals.

Four businesses which recently took on Jaipuria students under the IMP – Chisel program had nothing but good to say about the experience.

Sayaji Hotels Limited, which operates a restaurant called Kebabsville, asked students to tackle the problem it faced with customer wait times.

Kebabsville has a seating capacity of around 200, but during weekends the traffic increases greatly and because seating can’t be increased due to space constraints, the average waiting period for customers grows.

The sentiment of ‘giving back to the country’ dominates republic day celebrations at Jaipuria Institute of Management, Indore

Jaipuria family celebrated India’s 64th Republic Day on The 26th of January 2013 at Jaipuria Indore with characteristic enthusiasm.

The tricolour was unfurled by Dr. J. P. Upadhyay, Director, Jaipuria Institute of Management, Indore, on the college campus and the entire congregation of students, staff, faculty and management sang the national anthem in unison. Sweets were distributed amidst joyous fervour. Jaipuria institute had invited the children of the Dakachiya village as special guests for the occasion. Mr. Saumya Roy, who has varied experiences in the field of defence services, banks, educational institutions, NGO’s and theatre, was the Chief Guest. He reminded the future managers that the issues, achievements and failures of India are the issues, achievements and failures of its people.

“Grow, and bring the change, that you want to see around you, within yourselves,” Mr. Saumya Roy exhorted the students of Jaipuria Indore. “Study, go abroad and do well; but return to your country and feel responsible for it.”

Dr. J. P.Upadhyay used the beautiful contrast between the Dead Sea and its neighbouring Galileo Island, to eloquently described how ‘giving’ is directly connected to ‘life’.

“The River Jordan feeds the Dead Sea – where nothing grows – as well as Galileo – a haven for life, where organisms and plants of the rarest form flourish. Galileo shares what it has, and that adds to its prosperity; while the Dead Sea has no vent to further percolate the water that it receives. Without ‘giving’, the water mass in the Dead Sea has truly become ‘Dead’. Give back to your country and make it flourish.”

In their own turn, faculty members like Prof. Nitin Merh, Prof. Kanak Gupta, Prof. Jagdish Bhagwat, and Prof. Romi Sainy spoke inspiringly to the students of Jaipuria, Indore.

Abhishek Singh, Aditi Sharma and Sanchayika Choudhary were the students from Jaipuria Indore, who expressed how ‘Gen Y’ feels about the nation.

This was followed by an open house debate on the motion – ‘Republic Day is Merely a Symbolic Holiday for Gen Y’. It brought out with soul-searching clarity how ‘Gen Y’ has realised its casual attitude towards its country. Many spoke for the motion with stark honesty, accepting their ignorance and apathy towards the importance of the day, and India’s uphill climb to its present position.
The 64th Republic Day gave Jaipuria Indore family renewed vigour to be vigilant against corruption, respect the women of the country, and protect and prepare the children for the future, while also taking care of the aged.
