Things which differentiate IIM Udaipur – Emotional Intelligence!

The emotional brain responds to an event more quickly than the thinking brain – Daniel Goleman

Working in the complex business environments requires managers to take up decisions in which they are expected to consider not only the business implications but also the people affected by the decision and the process warrants the awareness of emotional intelligence.

IIM Udaipur follows the pedagogy of grooming student managers with emotional intelligence along with excellent business acumen. The long term envisioning is to ingrain emotional intelligence in the activities in such a manner that the students uphold the values which represent the institute’s foundation. Over a longer period of time, students see themselves developing as leaders more confident of their capabilities and decision making judgment so that they land up better equipped with emotional intelligence in the corporate world.

The academic courses like Organizational Behaviour and Business Ethics are specifically designed and modified, and their delivery methods customized to nurture emotional intelligence of students and the expectations from them in dealing with people as teams and resources in organizations. Furthermore, courses like Inspired Learning through Personal Mastery and Advanced Leadership Course taught by professors with decades of experience in Leadership Development strive to teach students learning by observation and self-reflection. Exemplary leaders from the senior management of various organizations are also invited to the campus whose leadership styles inspire students to critically analyze, comprehend and enhance the decision making skills of their own selves.
