Dr. Satish K. Nair
Our Founder, Dr. K. M. Vasudevan Pillai’s commitment to quality education is captured in his use of the phrase:
‘… nation building through character building …’.
We, at PiMSR, do stand by our founder’s emphasis on character building that is reflected in our mission statement:
‘To develop professional managers with respect for the environment and responsible leadership in the quest for excellence in an Indian and global perspective’.
Dr. Satish K. Nair
In keeping with the spirit that drives us, we, at PiMSR, focus on all-round development of our students, irrespective of the path they choose: entrepreneurship; succession in family businesses or professional management and leadership.
The twenty-first century is characterized by, what Dr. Kirk Lawrence (the then, Program Director for University of North Carolina’s Executive Development, in his 2013 talent management white paper ‘Developing Leaders in a VUCA Environment’) describes as, ‘the chaotic, turbulent, and rapidly changing business environment that has become the “new normal” …’. With its military origins denoting the post-Cold War era, ‘VUCA’ describes the current global economic situation that countries and organizations find themselves in. The acronym stands for Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity – essentially the unfolding turbulent macro-environmental scenario. Such developments pose a challenge for the management academia: the need to instil the right set of values and skillsets in the aspiring graduates to enable them to face the turbulence ahead.
THE ‘VUCA’ AT PiMSR!
We enable our students to face this chaotic business world with judicious investments in the right set of infrastructure, collaborations with relevant bodies and platforms to develop one’s competencies and showcase them.
