KIAMS was founded by a great industrial house, the Kirloskars. It started as an Institute to conduct MDP before considering moving into full-time education. In line with their philosophy and outlook, we adopt the ruling paradigm of "Education through Values". There are three domains where Value is seen in action: Beliefs, Processes and Results.
Our Beliefs hold that everyone has a potential and worth, which cannot be measured on a common scale. And that there is ample room for everyone in the field of Management. Thus each individual has a potential which can find a niche in Management. If you are not the CAT whiskers in quantitative methods, you can empathise your way to the pinnacle of HR. Translated into action, our selection process will look at the student holistically. If s/he reveals some potential that can be deployed in the vast area of management, s/he is welcome to the KIAMS education process.
Our Processes will aim beyond delivering good education. The invitation to the student is to master theory but eschew being theoretical. The individual is encouraged to explore with a sense of responsibility to find the potential that s/he wishes to convert to professional performance. The thinker is as valued as a doer; art co-exists with science. Our association with the industrial house of Kirloskars will facilitate an easy two-way osmosis between concept and application. Our processes would also weed out those who may have misguidedly chosen the path of Management. What would emerge at the end of a two-year process is an eclectic bouquet with each flower having its own valuable fragrance.
The Results are seen in the good track record of MDPs which we have been conducting for many years. Our original contribution in training industry for Process Orientation - the future of industry structure - has been acknowledged by the Kirloskar Group. Soon it will spread to other companies also. In full time PGDM this will be seen in placements
