THE JOURNEY OF CORPORATE INDIA TOUR
Students in IES-MCRC are encouraged to organize many events and activities on their own to help them become better professionals. With this objective, students’ clubs have been set up.
Going by the Mission statement of IES-MCRC we have a firm belief that a management graduate cannot become a successful manager unless he is socially sensitive. IES-MCRC encourages students to participate in many community development services. These activities help students see the picture of the real world. The community development services are undertaken through CSR projects and a specially created cell called – RYTHM.

CENTER OF EXCELLENCE
The Centre of Excellence for Leadership and Entrepreneurship was launched in 2010 with the intention of grooming our students to become leaders and entrepreneurs. The centre aims to develop into a hub for education research and training on all issues related to leadership and entrepreneurship. Various programmes based on principles of collaborative and competitive learning are arranged for students to expose them to live in situations which help them evaluate and test their leadership and entrepreneurial ideas and hone their skills. Visits, research based projects, guest lectures, student competitions and interaction with entrepreneurs are organized throughout the year. Alumni entrepreneurs are invited to share their business journeys and challenges and provide an entrepreneurial orientation to students.
As part of leadership and teamwork module, IES-MCRC students also participate in outbound training programme. This outbound activity gives them an opportunity to enjoy adventure sports and learn management concepts through these activities. The module was jointly designed by IES and Empower Activity Camps, Kolad, with a two-fold objective: Enhancing human effectiveness and inculcating leadership and team-work skills. The training involves management games intertwined with on-field training exercises. This inculcates a strong sense of achievement orientation and exposure to real life team situations

With the purpose of giving real life experience to students, IES-MCRC does not restrict itself only to summer internship projects. As part of the curriculum students are encouraged to undertake many live projects with industry. Special slots are created in the time-table to enable students to spend time with industry to work on these projects.
CONSULTANCY & MDPS
Leveraging the vast industry experience of faculty, IES-MCRC offers consultancy services to many industries. Also, Management Development Programmes are conducted for industry executives. Apart from disseminating the knowledge this interaction helps our faculty to gain insights into the current industry trends as well as network with industry professionals.
IES-MCRC organizes many conferences and small seminars. Through these events, students get an opportunity to interact with industry professionals. People from industry are invited as speakers in these events and share their experiences. Apart from this the College also creates a lot of other small occasions on which industry experts could be invited to interact with students.
To improve the employability of our students we take a number of steps. One of the important activities is to conduct mock interviews with full participation by industry professionals. These interviews are conducted with the purpose of giving meaningful inputs to the students about the areas where they need improvement. This experience goes a long way in helping students perform better when they go for campus recruitment process.
All the first year students of IES-MCRC are required to undertake CSR projects as part of their curriculum. These projects are done either with the CSR departments of corporate houses or NGOs. Every student spends at least 40 hours on such projects. Through these projects they get opportunities to meet people who are always in need of support from the society. At the end of the project the students are required to write a report and give presentation which is evaluated by the faculty members along with industry people under whose guidance the projects are completed.
IES-MCRC was among the few institutes who pioneered the mentoring programme for its students. The system has now well established. Under the mentoring programme all the students are attached to faculty mentors. The mentor / mentee relationship goes beyond academics and career guidance. A sincere effort is made to create a culture wherein mentor / mentee bonding becomes very strong and mentees freely interact with their mentors. “A lot of people have gone further than they thought they could go because someone else thought that they could”. This is exactly what the mentors do because they identify the strengths of their mentees and work on those strengths. This works as a great encouragement for the mentees to do their best to succeed in life. The mentors provide necessary guidance to their mentees and direct them to the right path by motivating them at each and every step. The mentor / mentee relationship in IES-MCRC is so effective that even after completing the programme, many of the alumni look for guidance of their mentors.

ACME OF CORPORATE EXCELLENCE(ACE)
There's a saying in India, "Athithi Devo Bhava", which means "the guest is God". Indians consider it a huge honour to have guests in their home, and go out of their way to please them. Home to a vibrant cultural history, the country has always been a destination that held mystical charm to it.
Today, the index for industrial production (IIP), in India, has expanded driven by growth in consumer goods that increased by 5.2 per cent in 2012. In terms of industries, 12 of the 22 industry groups in the manufacturing sector have shown positive growth. The Indian Economy, focusing on sustainable development in all sectors has achieved a steady increment in GDP and Per Capita Income even as the world reels in the after-effects of the recession.
As the Indian economy shows a steady growth, countries across the globe look to gain a bird’s eye view of the booming industrial sector. With domestic companies raising their production standards, and foreign investors also seeking to enter the Indian market, Indian B-schools try to position themselves as global brands and foreign institutions vie to study the developing economy in depth.
To cater to this need IES Management College & Research Centre spearheaded the Corporate India Tour (CIT) initiative. It is a platform for foreign institutes to get a sneak peek into the workings of corporate India through the industry interface between IES and the various corporate houses, with productions in India. The event allows foreign students to directly interact with leaders of industry in India and gain insight about the functioning of conglomerates within this rapidly developing nation.
The Indian Education Society, has special focus on external collaboration through the “Acme of Corporate Excellence (ACE)” program, newly initiated at IES.
Through cultural exchanges with foreign management institutions the ACE@IES wing, aims at crossing borders with student exchange programs, faculty exchanges and inter-country research exchange programs. Through the inter-mingling of creativity with some of the best minds over the world, IES strives to bring Indian value based education into the 21st century. With the Corporate India Tour at the forefront of this endeavor, IES has taken the 1st step to bridge the gap between industry amd academia.
Under these clubs, students organize many competitions, presentations, guest lectures, etc. to provide a platform to students to showcase their learning and applications of their domain knowledge. In some cases the competitions are not restricted only to IES-MCRC students and students from other institutions are also invited to participate.
ACTIVITIES-THE IES-MCRC NEWSLETTER
Every quarter, IES-MCRC publishes a newsletter giving information on all the activities happening in the College. This newsletter works as an effective channel of establishing communication link with industry, alumni, universities and colleges. Apart from reporting on events and activities, the newsletter is also used to highlight the achievements of students and faculty members.

IES-MCRC believes in continuous updation of the curriculum to keep it current as per industry requirements. There is a faculty committee to work on the curriculum revision. However, there is also an involvement of and participation by industry experts in this process. Senior industry experts are invited to deliberate on the issue of curriculum and the revision takes place only after incorporating their suggestions.
With the purpose of giving real life exposure to students, many industry visits are organized. When students visit these industries the senior executives take them around and explain to them all the processes. This experience gives a significant insight to the students.
RYTHM is a voluntary community development cell created by IES-MCRC students. Unlike CSR projects, students work on voluntary basis in this cell under the guidance of faculty members. RYTHM cell organizes many activities which fall in the category of community development services. Some of the examples of these activities are blood donation camp, social awareness seminar, tree plantation, visiting and spending time in old age homes and orphanages, organizing anti-smoking campaign, holding seminar on gender sensitization, etc.
Going by the value system of IES of maintaining transparency and openness, IES-MCRC does not involve only faculty and staff in its administration but students also get this opportunity. There is a 'Student Council' consisting of Class Representatives of all the programmes. This Council meets the Director and some senior faculty members every month to discuss the academic and administrative issues. Through this forum, students get an opportunity to express their view-points. All the good suggestions coming out of these meetings are implemented by the management so that students develop confidence in the systems and procedures of the College.
