5yr Kid from slum graces 5th foundation Of CIMP

Patna, Feb 4: Chandragupt Institute of Management Patna (CIMP) could not sum up its game-changing mission in the education scene of Bihar over the past four years in a more poignant way than inviting a five-year-old child from the slum as the special guest for its fifth foundation day.

Though without a special lecture, the very presence of the child itself did speak in clear terms what CIMP has done to re-charter the course of education in Bihar over the last four years through a number of novel and innovative social initiatives.

 

The child was of those many who had taken benefits from CIMP's social initiative -A Beautiful Mind-under which the local slum children were being given free coaching, mentoring and hands-on computer training.

Speaking on the occasion, CIMP Director Dr V Mukunda Das called upon the students to commit themselves with their might to better the fortunes of the poor people in the society, especially the rural folks.

5th Foundation Celebrated By CIMP

The CIMP fraternity should think in larger interest of the institution. The genetic code of an institution is created, not inherited, he said, while pointing out that the builders of good institutions had good family background and he himself drew the strengths from people like Dr V Kurien of AMUL.

Dr Das said the CIMP had its focus on the poor in Bihar and it was going ahead with many more plans to further this mission. If the social cost benefit analysis of any institution is done, CIMP should rank as the top because of its many social initiatives," he said.

The meeting also congratulated Dr Das who has completed five years as the director of the CIMP and guiding the institution on its growth track and making it one of the finest management institutions in North India.

CIMP was started in the year 2008 when Chief Minister Shri Nitish Kumar articulated a vision that was as challenging to execute as simple to state: to build a top class business school in Bihar. The rest is history. Within four years of its inception, the AICTE-approved CIMP has scaled glorious heights and created new benchmarks. The institution has been ranked among the top 20 business schools in India. Inaugurated in 2008 by His Excellency the Vice-President of India, Md. Hamid Ansari, as an autonomous institution with active support from the Government of Bihar, CIMP has been founded with the objective of contributing substantially to the academic and development credentials of Bihar, while fulfilling the primary role of training students to become professional managers.

On the occasion the foundation day, the CIMP paid rich tributes to Prof Vyuptakesh Sharan, its Professor Emeritus, who passed away on Sunday. Alumni of the institute also joined and pointed out how the late management guru helped them shape their careers through rigorous training and simulations.

Representing the alumni were Mr. Abhishek from the first batch of CIMP, currently working at ITC, Ms. Smriti from the second batch, currently working at National Dairy Development Board and Ms. S. Priya, currently working at Tata Advanced Systems.
