Director's Message

Free Blog TemplateIndira Institute of Management, Pune (IIMP) works with a mandate to provide regional and global leadership in education. The on-going effort, worldwide, in improving quality of management education and enhancing existing capacities is a result of vibrant and receptive management institutes like IIMP. The rapid economic and technological developments, occurring at national and international levels have kept us on our toes so that the young minds are abreast to unprecedented changes and match the global standards. From its inception in 1994, IIMP has been meeting the need of a constructive and creative initiator in addressing the present and future global challenges.

Curious is a platform for disseminating situational thinking on every aspect that moves business. This National-level Case study competition has proved par excellence, for budding managers to showcase and prove their problem-solving and analytical mettle.

Curious saw its inception in the year 2006, since then the event has developed in scales with respect to its format, nation-wide participation and Live cases with increased levels of difficulty. Curious was initiated in a format where the participants registered online and visited the institute for directly analysing and presenting an extemporal live case. Unlike previous years, Curious 2015 witnessed a change in format. The competition was split in two phases. The first phase was an online round, wherein a live case was sent online and analysed by the participants. Twenty top teams were shortlisted for the final round i.e. the second phase was conducted at the Institute. A different live case study was given to the twenty teams and they participated in written analysis and then presented the case to the panel experts.

Curious 2016, saw a complete change in the format as we went online. This was a breakthrough from the traditional format and was a huge success. It crossed all boundaries and witnessed huge participation. Hence, I am proud to say that Curious has always been a platform for such breakthrough innovative ideas and has kept pace with changing technology and getting connected to people around the spectrum

In this 13th year of Curious we are sure to see participants surging, for quest of knowledge.
