Globally companies are realizing that CSR not only
contributes significantly to their growth, revenues,
profits and employee retention in the short term but more
importantly their long term survival and prosperity
depends on being a good corporate citizen and be seen as
one. Corporations across the world are thus working
towards a corporate stewardship based model under which
they fulfill a dual role via act in conformity with
societal expectations and endeavor to minimize/ ideally
eliminate negative environmental impact.
In keeping with the growing role, relevance and the accent
placed on CSR by the govt.of India, psus, private sectors
including mncís we at IFIM B school are also exploring the
possibility of building, promoting and strengthening,
through various strategic tie-ups and partnerships,
intra-state, regional, national and international
alliances for undertaking academic oriented CSR
initiatives for the mutual benefit of all the

possibilities of integrating CSR into all functional

Extra-curricular activities & hands-on involvement with
At IFIM B School, CSR is not just about academics alone.
In order to recognise and reflect the growing importance
of CSR as a everyday concern, we have institutionalized
CSR and elevated it to the status of a compulsory
extra-curricular activity intertwined with the pgdm (ib)
programme. Consequently, it now forms an integral part of
the student activity as an exclusive student club.
Students are required to visit ngoís to observe, note,
interact and learn in a real-time setting. we believe that
these visits will not only give them a deeper
understanding and insight of the issues that are dealt
with in the class room but more importantly becomes a
talking point about issues such as health, hygiene,
literacy domestic harmony and the like that would shape
and impact their overall personality.
