Extra Curricular Activities
Industry Interface is perhaps the most critical differentiator for management institutions worldwide. KIMS gives due recognition to this fact. In addition to the conventional methods of developing corporate interface such as the public relations work, organizing guest lectures and seminars, industrial visits, etc, leading to the placement of students, the institute strongly believes in establishing a firm foundation for corporate interface through some innovative practices. Some of these include industry sponsored field studies by the faculty, involvement of students in live cases, undertaking of Management Development Programmes and consultancy projects for the industry. We at KIMS strongly believe in making corporates our partners who would instill good practices, process and execution skills in our students. This interest is also reflected in the constitution of our Board of Members which includes eminent member representatives from the industry.
