ABOUT US

Over the last few years, globalization has created a world market for skilled professionals. The world of business has changed. As the competition becomes increasingly fierce, the need for businesses to consistently innovate and outperform themselves continues to grow.

'Innovation has become the industrial religion of the century. Businessmen see it as the key to increasing profits and market share. However, Innovation is not enough. To stay ahead of the competition, we must learn to connect, communicate and collaborate, for these are critical to success in an information abundant world.

Avenues 2014, through its theme "Breach the Zenith" aims to explore this dire need and ways to continually raise the bar by the incumbents through the plethora of competitive events, leadership lectures and panel discussions. The mega event looks forward to seeing brilliant minds from country's top business schools and corporate houses vying for the top slot in diverse events.

AVENUES’ is the International Business festival of IIT Bombay organized by Shailesh J. Mehta School of Management, IIT Bombay. It consists of a potpourri of management events targeted at the budding managers and combines learning with fun. Management students across the globe participate in this extravaganza to outdo and outlast the competition. All the events are keenly contested and judged by the best known people from the industry and academia. Avenues has opened its gates for International business schools as well as corporates for the first time this year.

Alankar - The Global Leadership Summit, presents an opportunity to understand the persistent efforts put in and tribulations endured by eminent leaders who pursued their ambitions to reality.

India is moving towards a knowledge-based economy. We at IIT believe that much of economic growth that would take place in the coming years in India has to be through efficient management of ventures which are in their growth phase. The management of organization in this phase involves dealing with technological changes at the micro as well as at the macro level.

Thus, managers with a strong background in technology are best placed to lead India onto a higher growth path.

IIT Bombay, founded in 1958, has established itself as a premier world class teaching and research institution in technology and interdisciplinary programmes. About twenty percent of its alumni are entrepreneurs- many of them first generation. The pre-eminence of the Institute is evident from its varied and effective academic programmes for manpower development to meet the rapidly changing needs of the Organizations.

To promote interdisciplinary learning and to keep up with the changing environment, IIT Bombay established its management school in 1995 with the objective of transforming professionals with technological background to “Renaissance Leaders” of tomorrow. In the year 2000, the school was renamed as Shailesh J Mehta School of Management, in honor of Dr. Shailesh J. Mehta, a distinguished alumnus of IIT Bombay and a generous contributor to the school. The School Of Management already leads the way in preparing its Graduates to respond to the new challenges by drawing on the varied intellectual resources of IIT Bombay and providing an outstanding and innovative program in management education.

IIT Bombay, set up by an Act of Parliament, was established in 1958, at Powai, a northern suburb of Mumbai. Today the Institute is recognized as one of the centers of academic excellence in the country. Over the years, there has been dynamic progress at IIT Bombay in all academic and research activities, and a parallel improvement in facilities and infrastructure, to keep it on par with the best institutions in the world. Institutes in positions of excellence grow with time. The ideas and ideals on which such institutes are built evolve and change with national aspirations, national perspectives, and trends world – wide. IIT Bombay, too, is one such institution.

Motto of IIT Bombay
The motto of IIT Bombay – “Gnayanam Paramam Dheyam”, or “Knowledge is the Supreme Goal”, is reflected in the Vision and Mission of IIT.

Dr. Mylsamy Annadurai – Program Director, ISRO Mangalyaan and Chandrayaan Missions
ISRO is probably the most-admired institution in the country today and it has rightly won a lot of acclaim for its frugal innovations in space research in the last few decades. ISRO stands tall on the shoulders of scientists and leaders like Mr. M. Annadurai, who currently serves as the Programme Director for IRS&SSS (Indian Remote Sensing & Small, Science and Student Satellites) that include Chandrayaan-1, Chandrayaan-2, ASTROSAT, Aditya-1, Mars Orbiter Mission and many Indian Remote Sensing missions.

Mr. Annadurai joined the organization in 1982 and has rose through the ranks by dint of hard work and undaunted commitment to science and innovation. He has served the nation in multiple capacities, first as Mission Director of the INSAT missions, assistant-director of the GSAT-3EDUSAT project and as the Project Director for Chandrayaan-1. The latest feather in his cap is the successful Mangalyaan mission, where astonishing cost-innovation was married to scientific precision.

The INSAT satellites transformed the communications landscape of the country and the technological prowess depicted in the Chandrayaan and the Mars Mission will hold the nation in good stead in the years to come. However making the claim that Mr. Annadurai is a typical brilliant scientist would be doing him an injustice as he is known to dabble in Tamil literature. He has two published books, "Kaiyaruke Nila" and "Ariviyal Kalanjiyam". The Book, “Kaiyaruke Nila “has won the S. P. Adithanar Literary award for the year 2013.

Dr. Prakash Amte – Padma Shree and Magsaysay Award winner, Social Activist
Mr. Prakash Amte, the son of the legendary Baba Amte, is a well-renowned social worker from Maharashtra. Mr. Prakash Amte and his wife Dr. Mandakini Amte were jointly awarded the prestigious Magsaysay award for their work in community leadership in 2008 in the form of ‘Lok Biradari Prakalp’ in Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh and Andhra Pradesh.

He moved to Hemalkasa to start the Lok Biradari Prakalp in 1973, a project for the development of tribal people, most of whom were the Madia Gond in the forests of Gadchirolli district in 1973. He lived and worked there without electricity, telephone etc. for almost twenty years and at times performed emergency surgical procedures without electricity. The project transformed into three initiatives:
     • A hospital, Lok Biradari Prakalp Davakhana: It seeks to improve health of the tribals and provides health care to about 40,000 individuals annually.
     • A residential school, Lok Biradari Prakalp Ashram Shala: It provides educational services for tribals in the area. It has over 600 students, residents and day scholars.
     • An orphanage for injured wild animals, the Amte Animal Arc

The life and work of Mr. Amte is a source of deep and abiding inspiration to all public-spirited citizens of the country. Mr. Amte’s work in providing sustainable and scientific ways of living to the impoverished tribes is a poignant case study in the social history of India.

He is the living exemplar of Mahatma Gandhi’s powerful message – “Be the change you want to see in the world.”
