To produce global managers who are firmly rooted in Indian cultural ethos.

The definition of Manager in Global Village of today will be incomplete if we do not emphasize the importance of Mind Management and Self Management as an essential ingredient of a Good Manager Leader. Management education that, not only creates decisive and creative global managers, but also nurtures the spiritual values of universal love and passion to serve the society in right spirit, is the need of the day.

Course Design Philosophy:
While the list of courses may look similar to what is offered at many business schools, the difference here is that these courses are designed to facilitate action. You learn by doing several live projects as part of courses, besides reading, listening, viewing, engaging in case discussions and role plays. Live projects are projects undertaken for clients who compensate you for your services. There is no better way to learn than by shouldering real responsibilities and then reflecting on these experiences.
SSIMS is also clear that you need to manage yourself before you step out to manage the world. Hence, two Art of Living courses are integral to the curriculum.
Finally, you aspire for good placements after the program. To help you seize placement opportunities, the curriculum features Placement Preparation Workshops conducted by experts
Unique Features of the Course:
Keeping in view the Vision and Mission of Sri Sri Ravishankar Vidya Mandir Trust (SSRVM), the 2 unique courses, namely Seva Activity and Social Entrepreneurship are the specialty of the institute, with the aim of grooming students to do business and other activities, keeping in mind society at large.
As the parentage of the institute lies with, His Holiness Sri Sri Ravishankar, his teachings and path shown by him is in the gene of the institute. World over, there is a buzz around, giving something back to the society. As it is well accepted that any professional or entrepreneur owes his/her success to the society they live in. So every individual not only has a duty but also a stake for continuance of this eco-system for common growth and prosperity. In light of this the institute has introduced a course “Seva Activity”, to instill a sense of togetherness with the world at large. In this course students are encouraged to do projects that will transform the life of people, like “Blood Donation Camp”, “Cleaning of Public Places”, “Adopting an Orphanage” etc.
Another distinct feature of the program is social entrepreneurship, most of the B-Schools in India, have an entrepreneurship course. But this institute goes a step further, to blend “entrepreneurship” as a subject, with the goal of social empowerment, to motivate students to showcase their talent in the field of social entrepreneurship. In an emerging economy like India, there is tremendous scope for social entrepreneurship, as large number of people outside the ambit of consumption, want to become consumers in the days to come .In this course students are encouraged to provide professional and managerial expertise to Self Help Groups(SHG),Social Sector NGOs to run their economic activity efficiently. This grooms our students to be the future leaders in this emerging field.
The common theme that binds the course structure:
The thinking evolving today in the academic and corporate world is that, merely having good intelligent quotient (IQ) and emotional quotient (EQ) does not make a person successful; often there are ethical dilemmas, and a high “Spiritual Quotient” keeps a person in good stride in these challenging times. The institute imbibes the sense of ethical righteousness among all its students, through all the courses in the curriculum.
In a nutshell the curriculum tries to make our students creative, entrepreneurial and ethical alongside strong grounding in management subjects. The institute truly believes in the ideal of His Holiness Sri Sri Ravishankar that, “Life itself is a celebration” and every individual should “Achieve more than what he /she deserves”
