Implemented in 2011, aspirants applying to Jaipuria Institute of Management will fill out just one common application form, in which they can indicate their choices from amongst the six PGDM programmes offered across its locations.
This move will enable applicants to cut down on the number of forms to be filled and reduces the accompanying financial implications. The resulting single window interface for all admission-related queries for all locations makes processing easier and central for the Jaipuria Institute of Management.
The Jaipuria Institute of Management has in place the concept of Jaipuria Academic Area Councils(AAC), which centrally design the curriculum and syllabus. For instance, if the curriculum for Marketing is being finalised, then the select pool of Marketing Faculty from all the campuses – as well as experts – get together to brainstorm the various courses, outlines and delivery. The resulting curriculum is understandably world-class.
The AAC meet regularly to ensure that students are exposed to cutting-edge topics and business practices in and out of classroom. Since Jaipuria Institute of Management stresses equally on curricular and co-curricular activities, under UnCampus, flagship events of Jaipuria Institute of Management like IIC National Conference, JAMC, HR Summit, HR Conclave, Encore, Abhyudaya, Talaash and Udaan, provides unlimited opportunity to the students to mange and learn. The Milan – Immersion programme, where students across Jaipuria campuses visit their sister campuses accompanied by faculty members, stands to gain immensely by the UnCampus philosophy.
Overall, students from different locations of Jaipuria spend more time together through academics as well as extra-curricular activities.
One of the most interesting facet of the ‘UnCampus’ philosophy is the restructuring of the student exchange programme. Under this programme a student gets the opportunity to study for one trimester in any of the other Jaipuria campuses except for his or her own campus. This is over and above the global exposure through student exchange programme with foreign universities. Students are also benefitting immensely from the Faculty exchange programme. In effect, students will have access to the collective wisdom of more than 100 Faculty members from all the Jaipuria campuses.
The centralised placements system looks at giving corporate houses a wider choice to pick from, thus creating a win-win situation for all. It has been implemented after detailed discussions with the top corporate conglomerates of the country. Corporate houses now have access to a larger set of skilled manpower from which to fulfill their human resource needs. This has helped Jaipuria Institute of Management in achieving hiring efficiencies.
Students benefit from the centralised placement department, in addition to the campus specific placement cell. It provides students across all locations a wider platform with more opportunities to participate in the recruitment process. UnCampus has created a network of wider student community across the Jaipuria Institute of Management campuses.
