“A leader is the one who knows the way, goes the way and shows the way”

The name Indira Group Of Institutes (IGI) is synonymous with its driving force- Chairperson, Dr Tarita Shankar, the dynamic, passionate and caring leader who has shaped IGI from scratch. Dr.Tarita Shankar holds a Degree in Arts and Law and is an alumni of the prestigious Harvard Business School, USA having recently completed the ‘Owner/President Management’ program (OPM).

Realizing during the early 1990’s that Liberalization and Privatization of the Indian economy and consequently the education sector would open the door to innumerable opportunities, inspired by the wisdom of Chanakya, the legendary statesman, our iron willed Prime Minister, late Mrs Indira Gandhi and backed by the encouragement and blessings of her parents and well wishers, Dr Tarita Shankar sowed the seeds of the parent trust, Shree Chanakya Education Society, Pune.

Unwavering vision, meticulous planning, over two decades of countless hours at work, unflinching support from her younger brother and Group Director IGI, Prof. Chetan Wakalkar and a well groomed management team of seasoned academicians has seen the IGI group blossom to 12 Institutions delivering cutting edge learning, to over 12000 students from KG to PG level. ;

The ongoing slowdown in the Indian economy has affected the business climate within India. Even the growth rate of the major sectors like Power, Retail, IT and Technology is also experiencing the aftershocks of the global recession. The accompanying woes like a weakening rupee and stuck investments, rising inflation and interest rates are inevitably making the environment extremely competitive. However, as far as the immediate future is concerned, it is predicted that India is now on the way to recovery and will recover more rapidly than other countries.

Social media is playing an amazing role in pulling the business sector out from such a crisis. It has grown exponentially over the last few years and has impacted the industry- consumer interaction in multiple ways. Social media has had and is continuing to have a huge influence on business, encompassing customer relationship management, market research, cost control initiatives, sales and recruiting.

We at Indira understand this paradigm shift. Using the learning tools and the pedagogy used in classrooms, we not only entrench the domain knowledge but also emphasize the importance of integrating technology and social media for knowledge mobilization and running businesses successfully.

Our strong network of the alumni spread all over the globe, holding leading positions in industry and academia alike, are a testimony to the Indira’s focus of nurturing individual intelligence and the pursuit of excellence.

It is indeed a great pleasure to welcome you at Pune’s premier B- School- Indira School of Business studies.
