Academic year 2011-12 is getting over and the Batch of PGDM 2010-12 will be graduating to begin their journey in their career path. For most of them having previous work experience, it is reentry to new jobs, new horizon and professional responsibilities. I wish all the graduating batch the pinnacle of success in their career.
It is now three years since we commenced our operations from this new campus. The campus greenery is getting improved. A new gymnasium was added during this year and TAPMI’s new website provides all the information to our stakeholders. With the increased intake approved, the Institute proposes to construct an additional hostel block at the campus that can accommodate over 300 students. The new Administrative block with well laid out offices, faculty cabins, classrooms, seminar hall and computer centre is fast getting completed and has over 50,000 sft built up area to take care of the growth plans.
Academic infrastructure at Library and Knowledge Centre are continuously upgraded to provide best of learning environment to students and researcher. Additional housing facilities to faculty will have to be planned in a phased manner. The expansion of Student Centre is necessary to provide sufficient dining and food service area. It is expected that by mid 2013, the planned expansion of Student Residence, Student Centre, and infrastructure will be in operation.
Our students have won many competitive events and brought laurels to the Institute. Events such as Brand Scan, Atharva and Student Forum activities were organized with greater interest and participation. The AACSB team that revisited the Institute in January 2012 is likely to announce its decision regarding accreditation shortly. Overall development and growth plans at CEE, Bangalore and SHCIL, Mumbai are likely to materialize in the coming months. The performance of the Institute in PGP, Admission, Placements, Brand Building, EEP / Consulting & Research and general administration have shown further improvements.
To sum up, the year is getting over, yielding good performance and planned growth. This was possible due to the continuous guidance and support of the management and active participation of faculty, staff and students. In the years to come we will march ahead to reach further milestones and success.
