VGSOM Silver Jubilee...

Why is this Endowment  Critical for VGSoM? At this juncture of the completion of 25 glorious years, we do not merely strive to celebrate our success, but also look forward to taking tangible strides in making our institute even better in the years to come. We aim to be self-reliant and improve the visibility and impact we have as a business school in the IIT fraternity. The other reasons are: The endowment will become a perpetual system of cash flow for the betterment of VGSOM, especially the welfare of its students. There is an 80% correlation with top-ranking B-Schools and their endowment sizes. Alumni endowment leads to better alumni connectivity which is important for the success of a B-School.  Similar to toppers among UG and PG students in the engineering and science departments of the institute, we would also like to gift cash prizes to our toppers in management studies. Therefore, the endowment money will be used in rewarding the batch toppers. Not only will this incentivize students towards better learning, it will also carve a niche for the institute among the other gems of IIT Kharagpur. Envisioning Silver Jubilee Vision VGSoM Endowment Fund It was the philosophy of learn, earn and return which guided our founder into conceptualizing and establishing the Vinod Gupta School of Management, IIT Kharagpur. The roots of the foundation of this institute of excellence have been nourished from the love and benevolence of its alumni spread across distant horizons of the globe. Therefore, your Alma Mater is building a professional Endowment Fund which is critical to the long-term plans of VGSoM. The endowment would be a collection of donations by the alumni, parents, students and every family member of this institute. To ensure sustenance for years to come, the principal of these gifts cannot be spent, but the earning can. When a donor makes a gift to the endowment, the Institute agrees to manage and maintain that gift work for perpetuity. ~ Art of Friend Raising ~ Silver Jubilee Endowment Fund Campaign The Endowment Committee has set forth an ambitious target of raising INR 1 Crore for the endowment. This amount will be kept in a fixed deposit and the interest earnings out of the same will be utilized for providing the prize money to the toppers of the institute in the years to come. To maintain the perpetuity of our cash flows, only about half of the interest earned would be withdrawn and the rest would be re-invested to ensure the critical amount keeps growing in the times to come. Additionally, as our alumni base grows, we expect the donation amounts to increase manifold as well which would be further utilized for the improvement of the Institute.  Assuming 8% interest rate of the amount deposited we will generate 8 lakhs per annum as interest. Out of this amount, 4 lakhs will be used and the rest will be reinvested for the growth of the fund. The top 3 students of the graduating batch of MBA will be provided with cash prize of 1.75 lakhs, 1.25 lakhs and 1 lakh.  Honouring the Pioneers of Endowment Donating alumni will be recognized through VGSoM Donor's Gallery. Special souvenirs and a certificate of appreciation to be designed for the donating batch Your efforts will be publicized through various social media channels to motivate all your batch-mates connected with us to pitch in with their best. Other ways of contributing in Future Plans of VGSoM In the wake of the silver jubilee, the school has chartered a long-term plan for taking VGSoM to greater heights of glory. The institute plans to establish a Data Analytics and Financial Engineering (DAFE) Lab in the premise to provide state of the art data analytics solutions in the financial domain. Not only will this help the students of VGSoM, but also the students applying for the Financial Engineering programme offered by the school. This proposal will be executed in collaboration with the corporate sector. Also in the pipeline is our idea of association with international institutes for providing a global exposure to our students. We look forward to your assistance in the actualization of both of our plans which will be critical in improving our stature from NIRF 7th to up and above among the top 3 institutes of management.

M.N.Faruqui Innovati...

An innovation is something original, new, and important in whatever field that breaks in to (or obtains a foothold in) a market or society. IIT Kharagpur is seriously considering formal inclusion of this activity into the academics and research initiatives covering as wide cross section of faculty and students as possible. The institutionalisation of this process and its sustenance is a multi-pronged effort in which it is planned to have the initial core centre be created with the donation. The core centre will be able to support some student faculty groups initially and later on grow towards a more pervasive activity for the very large base of students with support from various quarters. Objectives Encourage Innovation in the Institute - The Institute has a large base of highly talented Students, knowledgeable Faculty and resourceful Alumni. The Institute already has a diverse set of specialisations and facilities and a remote idyllic setting facil

Annual Donor Program...

The Institute wants to excel its position as an academic and research driven institute with an impact that goes beyond the nation. With new IITs coming up there is a decreasing trend in funding from current sources. This would need more funding from other source. This fund will help in research & innovations, offer attractive remunerations to faculty and sustain other student oriented initiatives not funded by the Government. This fund needs to be built through regular donations over a long period of time and put into institute endowment which will take care of future needs. Your gift is invested —never dissipated! Become a Vision 20-20 Annual Donor   Email: anirban.roy@adm.iitkgp.ernet.in (pls email once you make a gift donation)  

International Endowm...

The Institute has launched the International Endowment Campaign which is a grass-root campaign. One of the key features of this Sub-Endowment is to address immediate needs of bringing in professors and scholars from foreign universities besides offering joint PhDs with top international institutes as well as providing sustainability of the future exchanges for developing international exposure and ranking.   In this International Programme which was launched today, at least 10 professors from some of the world's leading universities would come to the Kharagpur campus each year for few months. Similarly, around 30 talented international scholars would be invited each year to conduct research activities at IIT. KGP is already in talks with leading universities from the US, Europe, Australia, and Japan. Under the joint PhD programme, students would be awarded with the doctorate by IIT-Kgp and an international uni

Class Gift...

Few experiences are more gratifying than learning; such was the stay at IIT Kharagpur campus during student life. It was more than education, receiving degrees. It is a journey from being a teenager to becoming of an adult ready to face challenges the world would throw. To celebrate this journey a Grand Reunion was organized on January 23 – 25, 2015, by the batch of 1970. What the batch is celebrating are the gifts it made to their beloved Alma Mater.   Class Gift is a idea of taking an initiative and giving back to the alma mater. Collectively a graduating batch can identify a project and donate for the cause. When they meet at KGP during a special gathering called "Grand Reunion", 3 days here dedicated to a single batch they will unveil or inaugurate their gift.   During 2015 "Grand Reunion" 1970 Graduating Batch announced that they will dedicate a facility (perhaps place and sculpture ), where students ca
