Developing Global Leaders. . .
Society, community, family are all conserving institutions. They try to maintain stability, and to prevent, or at least to slow down, change. But the organization of the post-capitalist society of organizations is a destabilizer. Because its function is to put knowledge to work -- on tools, processes, and products; on work; on knowledge itself -- it must be organized for constant change. â€“ Peter Drucker
Creativity in Action is Innovation Organizations are increasingly recognizing the need to innovate to survive. Globalization, rapid technical change & new competitors have converged to create a turbulent environment which has increased pressure on organizations to become more adaptable. Creativity is only a beginning, the challenge is to transfer creative ideas into tangible solutions. The need today is to develop an individual's abilities to trigger, generate, control & steer new Ideas towards developing innovative products & services. INDIRA provides visionary leadership, creative ambience, faculty strength & holistic learning to create leaders of tomorrow. Leaders, who will not just be creative but innovative too ..

The program at the Indira Global Business School will equip the students with fresh insights and alternative ways of thinking, helping them to succeed in highly unpredictable and non linear conditions, making Global Leaders out of them.
Chairperson's Vision The interdependent global economy has ushered in a revolutionary new system of management; of societies, and organizations. Today, old paradigms are crumbling and new ones are emerging. As 'Globalization' matures from being a business buzzword to an economic reality more and more organizations are realizing that knowledge of world economies, international business practices and global cultures is essential for success. The greatest obstacle to global effectiveness is a shortage of people who are prepared to manage and thrive. In the new business paradigm, Global experience and knowledge is becoming essential for managers who aspire to be at the top in an organization. What is needed is a model of management thought which is comprehensive enough to respond to the emerging social, technological, political and cultural realities. At Indira Global Business School there is a Global focus in everything that is done. We are Global in the way we teach interact and learn. The program at the Indira Global Business School will equip the students with fresh insights and alternative ways of thinking, helping them to succeed in highly unpredictable and non linear conditions, making Global Leaders out of them. Ms. Tarita Shankar Chairperson - Indira Group of Institutes
Group Directorâ€™s Message Globalization has created a shift towards a more integrated and interdependent world economy. The sourcing of the production process to various locations around the Globe has led to the creation of several 'Global Products' and through offering of standardized products worldwide we see the creation of a 'Global Market'. The business case for Global leadership is compelling today. There is a strong need for 'boundaryless' cooperation in organizations and societies. In the new world order almost all work is Global in scope and Global knowledge is becoming an essential economic reality. It is increasingly evident that to establish Global Leadership individuals will have to unlearn and learn extremely rapidly. It's the leaders who possess a truly Global point of view will drive sustainable success. The Management Program offered at the Indira Global Business School is about establishing global leadership. It focuses on developing individuals who can handle management responsibilities that are global in scope. Prof. Chetan Wakalkar Group Director - Indira Group of Institutes

Pune City Pune has for ages been the education capital of India. Long before other centres in India could lay claim to dispensing quality education, the University of Pune had the honour to be rated among the best in the country â€” both by discerning educationists within and outside the country. Around the late 80s, with the realisation that government alone cannot be expected to take the responsibility for making education available to all, came the gradual decentralisation of the function to private participants. They had the wherewithal to improve upon the quality. This helped Pune to take a leap into the modern era of technology and stateof-the-art teaching pedagogy. If at all any evidence is required of the tremendous credibility Pune enjoys as a city of learning, the sheer numbers of students from other states of India and other countries seeking higher education here will set the argument to rest. Pune records an influx of over five lakh students from all over â€” Tamil Nadu to Jammu and Kashmir, and from Gujarat to the Seven Sisters in the East. But then, the city also attracts foreign students like bees to honey! The IT boom in the city in the early 90s, has given a boost to the education scene with a number of good educational groups becoming involved in dispensing education. Indira has become a household word among most aspirants for higher education. This is the city in which I grew up, and was privileged to get my education in and I am today glad to be doing my bit to add to its value. Ms. Tarita Shankar Chairperson - Indira Group of Institutes
