Pursuit of Management Education at Indira Group of Institute’s has been an inspiring journey. Being at the helm of endeavors at Indira I cannot help but imagine the possibilities the future holds for management education. The philosophy, governance and values of business are witnessing a sea change and plenty of its repercussions are already being witnessed across the globe. India cannot isolate itself from such dynamic global environment. This is the time to adopt the changes we perceive. Such dynamics should result in better professionalism, and the inherent strength of a competitive economy should become the sine qua none of our corporate existence.
Quality being the bottom line for every industry, Indira has never lost sight of the fact that for India to forge ahead in its drive towards economic supremacy in the world, it is the quality of our people who drive it that matters most. And quality, as the cliché goes, is never an accident but an article of faith. The Indira Group has proven itself on this count and has no intention of resting on its laurels.
The challenges of the global economy has not deterred us and at Indira we have redoubled our efforts to create just such managers ensuring that they are ready to take on the mantle for Corporate India in its march towards recovery.
Our faith in education and our vision to nurture the skills of business leaders of tomorrow has enabled us to hone our students drive for creativity and innovation. Our keen perception of the dynamics of change in management education has always geared us to offer courses and pedagogy relevant for contemporary business needs.
With the confidence that our intentions have matched our efforts, I wish you the very best in the future.

The ongoing slowdown in the Indian economy has affected the business climate within India. Even the growth rate of the major sectors like Power, Retail, IT and Technology is also experiencing the aftershocks of the global recession. The accompanying woes like a weakening rupee and stuck investments, rising inflation and interest rates are inevitably making the environment extremely competitive. However, as far as the immediate future is concerned, it is predicted that India is now on the way to recovery and will recover more rapidly than other countries.
Social media is playing an amazing role in pulling the business sector out from such a crisis. It has grown exponentially over the last few years and has impacted the industry- consumer interaction in multiple ways. Social media has had and is continuing to have a huge influence on business, encompassing customer relationship management, market research, cost control initiatives, sales and recruiting.
We at Indira understand this paradigm shift. Using the learning tools and the pedagogy used in classrooms, we not only entrench the domain knowledge but also emphasize the importance of integrating technology and social media for knowledge mobilization and running businesses successfully. Our strong network of the alumni spread all over the globe, holding leading positions in industry and academia alike, are a testimony to the Indira’s focus of nurturing individual intelligence and the pursuit of excellence.
It is indeed a great pleasure to welcome you at Pune’s premier Institute.
