(Director of College)
Welcome to GIM,GIM is one of an elite band of educational institutions worldwide that is Board–managed, faculty driven and alumni inspired. What this implies for all stakeholders (program participants, alumni, faculty, corporates, management/investors and society-at-large) is that in thought, word and deed, GIM continually stays relevant and anticipates changing stakeholder needs.GIM does not have students - but program participants. This reflects GIM’s belief that learning styles are diverse and that all learning is best sustained with active involvement by the participant and not just by passive lecturing. It also reflects GIM’s belief that every act of teaching is also simultaneously an act of learning, and faculty learn as much in the process of teaching as does the participant.For GIM’s program participants therefore-irrespective of whether they are cadet or practising managers, academicians or researchers, they have an assurance that they will experience a process that will enrich them meaningfully and sustainably. Our design thinking approach ensures that at the end of the program they possess not just current tools and techniques, but, more importantly, the ability to learn on their own as they proceed to translate precept to practice.For our faculty, there is the opportunity to grow professionally and make their own mark in the transformation of society. There is an ambience of academic achievement and rigour and the thrill of collaborating with some of the best minds not only in GIM but also across our collaborating institutions.We realise that administrative staff play a vital role in our development and growth. Not only are they the silent and usually unsung actors on the backstage, they play a very important role as force multipliers for faculty. We care for their well-being and have in place a structured development plan for them as well.For those organisations that absorb our alumni, there is the comfort that the new recruit is one who has a 360 degree understanding of his/her role and the realisation that they are not just ‘customers’ who have just bought a ‘product’ but that they have actually entered into a partnership with an institution that goes beyond individuals but is yet nurtured by individual action.GIM believes that institutions which create, deliver or distribute value in society have a seminal role to play in societal debate and transformation and is so poised to do so. The mechanisms through which this role is delivered may vary from time to time. Historically, the first mission of educational institutions has been distribution (of knowledge previously produced; teaching) which then expanded to production (of new knowledge; research). Today society worldwide expects universities to adopt the third mission which is to accept the challenge of innovation in application of knowledge.This challenge forces universities to take an entrepreneurial turn. This can be done in two main ways – academic entrepreneurship leading to monetisation of knowledge and research findings and secondly, through entrepreneurial education. GIM has adopted both approaches and is working actively to create and facilitate the creation of new ventures in the profit-making and social action spheres.We invite you to join us in our endeavours so that we can together work to build a more meaningful and inclusive future for all humanity.K Balakrishnan Director

The year had just turned 1992. The mercury had dipped to unprecedented lows in Northern India, but down in what was then called Bombay, a new phenomenon was all set to soar. By late in the day on 15th January, Dalal Street was celebrating. For the first time ever, the stock market had crossed the 2,000-mark. Over the next two-and-half months, India witnessed its first ever stock market ‘Bull Run’ with the Sensex going from a 1000+ to an unprecedented 4000+ in March 1992. India grew richer by billions and millionaires sprung out of nowhere, overnight. The phenomenon captured the imagination of an entire generation, and suddenly ‘medical’ and ‘engineering’ seemed to grow out of fashion. Young Mario Aranha - just out of his teens – was pursuing his B.Sc with Honours, from the pre-eminent St. Xavier’s College in Mumbai, when he witnessed this first great rise of the Sensex. Mario began closely monitoring what was happening on Dalal Street, in the process reading exhaustively on economic matters. On completion of his graduation in 1993, Mario had several career options to choose from, and decided to pursue a degree in Business Management. “When I joined the 2nd batch of GIM in 1994, I had already decided that I would take Finance, and look to a career in Banking /Financial Services,” recalls Mario Aranha, Vice President, HSBC, with startling clarity, as if he’d walked into Goa Institute of Management just yesterday. “I arrived in Goa on a rainy day in July 1994, and headed for an address in Miramar, only to be told that GIM had shifted to a new campus at Ribandar. The people there were kind enough to direct my auto driver to the new address. On reaching the Ribandar campus, I was warmly welcomed by a handful of seniors from the 1st batch of GIM, and allotted a room in the new hostel building. Quite a few of my classmates were from my GD/Interview batch, and we quickly established a rapport. The next day our first class was addressed by Fr. R. D’Souza, and then we started regular lectures almost immediately.” Over the next couple of years, Mario learnt a lot about management; as much in the classroom as beyond its confines. But what really gave him a first hand feel of the entire gamut of management, was to see his alma mater grow as an institution right in front of him, in real time. “My batch was only the 2nd batch at GIM, and we did not have a structured program at that point in time, possibly due to lack of staff and facilities. However, I think there was a start, where we were always sensitized to the human aspect of management, rather than focusing on textbook situations and problems. Suma and Uday Damodaran were the 2 faculty members who had a big impact on my approach to learning. Their lectures, assignments and quizzes really helped us to get our concepts right. Even those of us who came from a non-Finance and non-Economics background were able to pick up these concepts. Text book learning was not good enough for them, and they went out of their way to find new methods to drive home concepts. I guess I really liked these professors, because their classes really encouraged you to THINK.” In 1994 the new Ribandar campus was still being established, and Mario recollects facing some challenges on the water and electricity. But they were a relatively small batch - 42 students, with 10 to 15 locals – with a good mix of people from all over the country from diverse education and work backgrounds. “We took this in our stride, and scouted around the Ribandar - Merces - Panjim - Miramar belt for food joints,” he continues with a smile. We would normally celebrate birthdays with a midnight session - dousing the person with a bucket of water! - and have parties on-campus for Diwali, New Year etc. We were also fortunate that the Government revived the food festivals while we were at GIM, and as a result we got to savour the best of Goan cuisine, accompanied by music and drama on the sands of Miramar.” In 1996, Mario was placed as a Trainee Officer in Centurion Bank in Goa, but within 4 months made the big shift to Kotak Mahindra in Mumbai. Over the next 9 years Mario grew steadily, working in different profiles and verticals as the Kotak Mahindra Group grew into a corporate giant we know today. “There were lucrative opportunities available in the market at that time. However, I was fortunate to be with the group as it expanded into new areas of financial services. This provided me with a number of opportunities to learn about new products and businesses. As long as there was sufficient scope for learning, I decided to stay put. Looking back, I feel that this exposure has benefited me by giving me a more comprehensive understanding of the financial services industry. GIM has always encouraged learning and all round development, and I think this may have contributed in my decision to continue with the Kotak Group.” It was this exposure that stood Mario in good stead, when he joined HSBC in 2007 as Associate Vice President for Cash Management & Liquidity Solutions for Corporates, a department where he is now a Vice President, working with Corporate customers in Western India. “I last visited GIM at the Ribandar campus about 10 years ago. There were several changes, - for one the batch sizes were much larger than mine. The facilities for the students and staff were much improved, as was the library. There was also a much more diverse faculty covering a range of subjects.” Mario Aranha is yet to visit the sprawling Sanquelim campus, functional since 2010, but plans to do so in the near future. His advise for the young guns at GIM is - Never be afraid to dirty your hands, because the best learning is doing a task yourself. And never miss a chance to learn or equip yourself with new skills, as these will hold you in good stead in the long run.
