Situated in the heart of Kolkata business district, the Eastern Institute for Integrated Learning In Management (EIILM) is highly focused on source of professional education for building careers in management. It represents an effective and significant investment in human potential development in India in the evolving context of the world. A specialized centre for professional education, the institute has been offering two years full time program in management.
Whereas chaos and crisis ridicules normal living, systems, structures and plans reestablish the normal fabric of an institution. The journey of human being in the society has created a path for others to follow the trails of legacy. Through the process of coining ideas and activities a fresh human being has been destined to take cues from the paths curved by the forerunners.
The conscious spirit of human being which is invisible, intangible, unnoticeable needs to be explored. Can we unleash it? Can we make it grow? Can we make it the guiding factor of life? Can we assimilate individual consciousness of many and apply that in the context of the collectives. The answer to all these questions is: yes, we can discover the spirit within, make use of the spirit for the benefit of the society and civilization. Make cultivation of new thoughts for transformation of institutions and society and finally transformation of person to a divine identity suited to the empirical requirement.
Post modern civilization will need new species of human being. Management by consciousness would pave the way for that. Managing enterprises by consciousness would establish a link to this phenomenon with the society certainly initiating the process to transform the person as well.
A manager is expected to be the Mother of the company/department/function. As a mother in a family takes care of the individual and collective emotions, personal wellbeing of every member of the family; priority is always given to the overall growth and wellbeing of the family taking into account the special need of individual in her/his organization. She/he is compassionate, caring yet result oriented. The manager is expected to manage his/her organization in the same manner.
An MBA student expects a comprehensive development of her/his personality through the exposure in the curriculum studied. Whereas, intellectual content of the curriculum matters a lot, a practice orientation is regarded more important than the former. A student expects conceptual, experiential and experimental contents in the program. In short, the person develops an inclination towards perfection; success in the corporate world becomes obvious.
Scaling high without any limit in the mind is what is called aspiration unbound. There are certain aspirations which are truly, purely based on material component of fact and rational. There are others who do not like to look at the material component of facts and rational.
Human civilization has scaled very high at all stages of its revolution. Look at a primitive and the social weathers where the ancient sages had dreamt of a society based on truth and relations of divine. The truth was universal in their revolutions and perception. They lived on this truth and wanted others for the same. They discovered the fact that: ‘your mind, your heart, your senses are built on truth, try to realize that, understand in your own way and give it a shape’.
The study of business programs has to have the combination of universal truth on one hand and visualization on the other. A good manager will make a synthesis between these two. The best intellect is one which can accommodate the perennial and the empirical and make best impact out of it. Look at the most successful company / enterprise of the recent times. The experiments of the combination between the universal and the empirical have been done by many of these enterprises and hence, they are successful. The best achievers in the field of business and industry are those having been able to do the same.
To my mind a specific correction is needed in the current structure of the global system of business. We need to look at transforming certain forms of the market or at least taming most of them. To list down a few of them are as follows:
The structures and mechanism of consumerism. Limited intervention of the market through regulatory mechanism in such a way that consumers and investors receive priority for and impacts on governance.
Flow of funds from larger entities to smaller entities in a continuous process so that the control of the funds and the velocity of the movement of the funds are all in the hands of consumers partly. The cohesive mechanism of administering markets by forces, which are otherwise non-participant, needs to be evolved in a planned manner.
Business is expected to inherit the accumulated visions of the past, visualized by the human society and the truth experienced by human being at different stages of its evaluation and beaconing.
Human society have observed the era of manufacturing excellence, product excellence, technology leadership, and aggressive consumerism at different phases of its development. The empirical entity of human being and concepts and processes of the needs and demands arise out of it has achieved overwhelming importance till date. However, the era of transformation is awaited. The process of transformation in the human society has started seeding with the same at the level of few individual across the globe. The same shall encompass the broader human society in a larger scale, taming down the needs and demands of the empirical and upholding the issue and the quest of the eternal in human life.

At EIILM Placement Department we believe in “Right Job for the Right Candidate”, offering Limitless Possibilities to all. Our belief system ensures only branded companies visit our campus with jobs befitting an MBA, and commensurate remuneration.
Our activities begin by Empanelling EIILM with the Corporates by creating liaison with branded organizations across business domains, where we are the preferred partner for Talent Acquisition.
Interaction process between student community and Placement Department is very transparent. Students are explained the industry expectations and are advised on the specializations to opt for a fruitful professional career. Competency gap analysis in comparison to industry requirements is undertaken for all students individually at entry level and counseled regarding their capabilities. The bridging process is planned continuously for the next four semesters with corporate requirements and students’ strengths & limitations in view. Strategies are customized to the need of each student to improve them on various aspects of the selection process. Pre-Placement Conditioning Classes ensures that students are exposed to simulated situations of corporate reality and stringent benchmarks from day one.
We provide industry interfacing through consistent feedback and valuable suggestions from eminent industry professionals regarding current industry trends and changes in the nuances of business. Feedbacks are incorporated in the Course Curriculum and Pedagogy making it up-to-date and practical so as to help the students to blend theoretical learning with practice. This increases the employability of our students and attracting Corporates.
Our strength is the capability to draw companies from all sectors, hence, students, get the opportunity to satisfy their needs as per their specialization, catering to their tastes and sectoral preferences. This reflection is yet again seen in the placement records achieved by EIILM this year.
In 2012, the Indian Economy has been witnessing a downturn from last year. The stock markets are volatile with indexes fluctuating. Economic growth has been very slow, (sometimes negative) along with hits from international markets in the form of devaluation of the rupee and periodic increase in international oil prices. Contrary to business expectations, FDI in the retail sector did not materialize, resulting in no fresh investment in that sector. Government has taken a defensive stand on the situation by maintaining the Interest Rates, CRR & Repo Rates at 2011 levels. Culmination of all of the above has shrunk hiring volumes. Nevertheless, during this academic year, 155 branded organizations across various industries have already visited our campus. Notably, even amidst the slowdown, the presence of Banking Sector organizations on Campus this year spells the success story of EIILM Placement Department yet again.
Our students, well placed in branded organizations, have been furthering the reputation of EIILM in the industry year on year.
