One such project involves working with NGOs (Non-Government Organisations) in a rural setting for about 2 weeks. It would help you to appreciate the way non-profits grapple with promoting big ideas as they build their networks and organisations with little power and limited resources.
For this purpose, the Centre for Development of Corporate Citizenship (DOCC) was set up to bring management education closer to reality in the Indian context. It exposes participants to the dynamics of life in rural India, where despite modern day tele-connectivity opening up new opportunities, many of the traditional challenges like poor infrastructure remain.
The participants have to work on a 10-day project to be implemented in socially or economically disadvantaged sectors in urban/rural areas through a variety of activities that include field visits, consulting and research in the social sector. The project reports are evaluated by an expert panel comprising faculty, representatives of NGOs and corporate leaders.
At SPJIMR, non-classroom learning involves value-based leadership development modules like Assessment & Development of Managerial and Administrative Potential (ADMAP), the Personal Growth Lab (PG Lab), the Development of Corporate Citizenship (DOCC) and the Science of Spirituality (SOS).
Along with theoretic classroom inputs, the program encourages you to constantly be in touch with the industry and industry trends, through working on live projects, cases, guest speaker series and mentorship programmes with the industry speakers. The annual conclave ‘Samavesh’ brings top business leaders on campus to interact with students, participate in panel discussions and enable a rich exchange between business and academics.
