The Industry Interaction Cell (IIC) acts as the link that connects IIM Kozhikode to the corporate world. IIC provides the platform wherein students, academia, industry magnates and leaders from all walks of life come together and share ideas. Through its various initiatives round the year, IIC ensures that the budding managers stay in touch with the real world, while honing their skills in the classrooms. Entrusted with all non-placement industry-related activities at IIM Kozhikode, IIC is committed to forging a long-term symbiotic relationship between the institution and the industry.
IIC provides plenty of opportunities to the student community at IIM K to test their business acumen through Live Projects offered in various domains. It allows them to have a first-hand experience of the business issues faced by organisations. We have associated ourselves with the likes of HUL, Desta Global, Spencer’s, Elara Capital, UTI Mutual Fund, Knowledge-Faber, SAP, Wipro Consulting to name a few. For students who want to sail through the untested waters of the start ups, IIC recently associated itself with the likes of TagNpin and Online Prasad (recently covered in yourstory.in) to provide students with an enriching experience through Live Projects.
IIC also organises Horizons, the flagship annual management conclave of IIMK. The conclave takes place for three days in the month of November wherein each day attempts to capture varied perspectives of academicians, corporate titans and policymakers; trying to align their ideas and views with ours.
Apart from Horizons, IIC also organises year round workshops and guest lectures from the industry practitioners along with the Leadership Talk series, a year round series of lectures from industry leaders. Through this initiative IIMK has witnessed the presence of speakers like Dr. Shashi Tharoor, Late Prof C.K. Prahlad, Dr. D. Subba Rao, Dr. J.J. Irani, Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, Dr. Harsh Mariwala to name a few.
From the month of September, 2012-13, we have undertaken a new initiative called “Industry Deep Dive” where in we will arrange a quarterly conclave on a particular industry sector. It will witness participation from industry experts, academia and the student community to brainstorm on the prevalent issues and to keep themselves in sync with the on-going industry developments.
