The two day induction programme for Post Graduate Programme in Management (PGP) Batch 2018-20 concluded at IIM Indore on July 1, 2018. The second day began with a talk by Mrs. SumedhaKhoche, who graduated from the Institute in 2003 and now runs her own business after successful stints in Procter & Gamble and PepsiCo. Mrs. Khoche impressed upon the students several values that are necessary to get the most out of the time spent at a B-School. She urged the students to invest as much as possible in the next two years, as the dividends they would gain cannot be imagined. The next point addressed was the importance of asking questions without fear of being judged by colleagues or friends, as obtaining perfect understanding of any topic or situation is paramount. Mrs. Khoche taught the students how to find their Ikigai, or Reason for Being, and the benefits of this. Finally, she underscored the importance of relationships, and how life is a series of individual choices. This was followed by a briefing on Hostel & Student affairs, by Professor Nobin Thomas. The batch was also briefed on Plagiarism & Gender Sensitivity by Professor Srinath Jagannathan, which was followed by a lunch break.



After lunch break, a session was organized on "Inclusion & Equality" by Ms. Shiva Priya from "", an organization which works on connecting differentially abled people with potential employers. She began with challenging the preconceived view on differentially abled people as being helpless and not capable of joining the regular workforce and broke the prejudice among many by telling her own story. Having partial vision from her childhood never stopped her from clearing CA IPCC or working in consulting firms before joining hands with Youth4jobs to create employment opportunities for the physically challenged persons.  posed herself as an example of what she believes, the belief that persons with disabilities have the strength and skills to join the mainstream workforce. On an attempt for sensitization of the budding managers of future corporate world towards the differentially abled persons, she gave a "21 Days Inclusion Challenge" to improve interaction with them. Many students showed interest in the work done by her organization and applauded the effort. The talk ended with an interactive question answer session among the students and Miss Shiva Priya. This was followed by a security briefing by Mr. Pradeep Sharma, after which Professor Rishikesha T. Krishnan interacted with the participants of PGP2018-20 batch.


The two day orientation programme facilitated the new batch get familiarized to the Institute, know their faculty, the infrastructure and aim higher looking forward to the next two years they would be spending here.
