IIM Calcutta kick-started the 1-year full-time residential MBA for its 14th batch on April 20, 2020, exactly as per schedule. The Director, Professor Anju Seth flagged off the program with an address by the Chairperson, Professor Manju Jaiswall.
IIM Calcutta has demonstrated acute planning to ensure students’ learning is not compromised. The institute has shown resilience and adaptability by switching to the digital delivery of the course content. The professors are using ‘beyond-the-blackboard’ methods to ensure students do not miss out on active class participation.
A current student, Alex, says, “The faculty, staff, and students have shown amazing unity and collaboration in the face of this adversity.” While another student, Shambo B., said, “The first thing corporate world teaches us, is adherence to timelines. IIM Calcutta has differentiated itself from other institutions by starting the course on-schedule by going online amidst the lockdown situation. Hoping to have a life-changing experience at Joka!”
IIMC’s smooth initiation of the programme on the online platform is a tribute to its faculty’s engagement and experience over the years on the online medium, a reaffirmation of brand IIMC, and a validation of the institute’s strategic play in the online management education space over a period of decade and a half.Posted in News, States
