IPR then becomes an effective tool to safeguard the strategic knowledge that a company uses to reinvent itself”. He delved into various strategies like trade-secrets, patents, copyrights and trademarks used to protect…

Annual Get-together.......And the Bond Continues!!!!

“Enough of presentations, case studies and the lectures........wanna break??”. “YeAh” was the call and the party delivered just that or shall I say anything more than that. The annual get-together of management department added spice to the monotonous academic life and it was a welcome change for the students as well as for the faculty. The party gave a perfect platform for our budding MBAs to showcase some of their hidden talents (yeah, they mastered the art of entertaining too!!). And believe me, they left the audience spell bound with shouts of “Once more!!!!”
The mood of the party was set by the light background music and the chit-chat of the students, faculty and their family members. So, we had a chance to see our profs in a light mood enjoying the party. The show began with a movie clip prepared by MBA first year. The sweet tunes of “Choti si asha” followed by “Aashayien..” which were coupled with some of the most memorable snaps of our life here brought the audience to a stands…

Chinese Delegates in IIT Kanpur

Hindi Chine bhai bhai”, the feelings associated with this slogan were once again revived here at IIT Kanpur, when Chinese delegates from Chinese embassy introduced themselves and greeted us with “Namaskar”. Recently, a group of three Chinese delegates visited IIT Kanpur and interacted with faculty and students of the institutes. It is considered as a forward step in strengthening the relations between two countries in technical and business areas. They had a small talk with the students and gave a presentation about the various economics policies of their country.
The comparisons between India and China in various fields were the main attraction of the talk. They also discussed in broad sense about their vision and various steps taken by their government to increase their GDP four times by 2020. The talk on the issues of inflation control, problem and challenges of the fourth largest economy of the world caught the attention of every one present in the auditorium. When it came to the…

A Salute to our ‘Seniors’

A ‘senior’ to most of us in the engineering studies was the one whom we called ‘sir’ or ‘madam’ and respected them for being the big boss (much of that came due to the training during our ragging period there). But our seniors (MBA batch 0f 2008) here at IIT K are a different lot. So, what if we call them by their names (this truly reflects a healthy culture here) and madden them with numerous questions. So be it giving us guidelines for the various committees or sharing their personal experiences or even giving lectures to clear our doubts in various courses(now that’s what a real senior is all about) the best part is that they rise to every occasion and deliver.So, today was one such day when we were coached by our seniors. The course was accounting: A completely new domain of knowledge (especially for us coming from an engineering background) and an interesting one. Apart from the usual lectures which we get from our Prof. Phani (he being the real king of this subject), our seniors…

My First week at IIT Kanpur

In today’s fast growing business scenario, getting an admission into a good B-school is almost everybody’s dream. The importance of that dream increases further when the MBA program happens to be the one offered by one of the most prestigious brands in the world in the educational sector.

MBA 2007-2009 batch of IIT Kanpur had one such dream and they proved that if passion and enthusiasm are the building blocks of your dream, you are destined to taste success. July 22nd was the day when the entire batch met for the first time. The moment we got our admission letters, the interaction among the members started on a social networking site. When we met, one feeling was common to all members; we all felt as if we already knew each other. Nobody was a stranger in the group which was meeting for the first time in the campus. Having only seen our batch mates on the website, the guessing game of pointing out everyone was great fun in itself. At one point of time it seemed that we all were part o…
Report on lecture by Prof. A. K. Gupta (IIM Ahmedabad) at IIT Kanpur.

‘I’ for Innovation with an ‘eye’ for innovation

Origin of the phrase “bottom of the pyramid” -U.S. president F. D. Roosevelt in a radio address

These unhappy times call for the building of plans that rest upon the forgotten, the unorganized but the indispensable units of economic power...that build from the bottom up and not from the top down that put their faith once more in the forgotten man at the bottom of the economic pyramid.

On 3rd August, Friday, IIT Kanpur played host to Prof. Anil K.Gupta from IIM Ahmedabad who was here to share his experience of grassroots innovations under the title- "Inverting the Bottom of the Economic Pyramid: Building upon Grass Roots Innovations"
Dr. Gupta earned his Ph.D. degree in management from KurukshetraUniversity (India).He is currently a Professor in the Centre for Management in Agriculture. Prof. Gupta is a recipient of Padma Shri and President, SRISTI (Society for R…
