IIM Shillong Golf Cup is the annual flagship event of IIM Shillong, which is attended by corporate leaders, bureaucrats, policymakers, and some of the nation’s top academicians. It was a breezy April day in 2009, when IIM Shillong along with Shillong Golf Club hosted a golf tournament for B-schools and corporate heads and marked IIM Shillong as the first and only B-School till date to organize and host its very own golf event.

It is often remarked that more alliances have been forged on the greens than in the boardrooms. Taking this concept forward, the idea of conceptualizing a consortium that would connect corporate and academia was born. Waiting-in- the-wings managers would take on captains of commerce and industry in what is arguably one of the most beautiful and serene 'battlefields' also known as the Gleneagles of the East: The Shillong Golf Course.

The past seasons of the event have been inaugurated by the Chief Minister of Meghalaya and witnessed participation from eminent personalities such as:

  • A.L. Hek, Minister of IT and Health and Family Welfare, Government of Meghalaya
  • Mr. Ashvini Bakshi, VP, Credit Suisse
  • Mr. Sukesh Choubey, ED, Ernst & Young
  • Mr. Raman Grover, VP , Deutsche Bank
  • Mr. Richard Saldanha, ED, Blackstone India
  • Air Marshal R.K. Sharma AVSM VM, Air Officer Commanding in Chief Eastern Air Command 
  • Mr. Amer Warsi, Director, Hewlett Packard
  • Mr. S.K. Menon, MD, BOC India
  • Mr. Amitabh Bhattacharya VP, Times of India, Eastern Region

It gives us immense pleasure to announce that we have come way forward to the 10th Season of the Tournament and established ourselves as a brand. Year on year the event sees greater participation from the corporates all over the country, fostering relationships for lifetime. The event is scheduled to be held on 11th – 12th November 2017 at the Shillong Golf Course (popularly known as the Gleneagles of the East) and is a part of the mesmerising India International Cherry Blossom Festival organised by the Government of Meghalaya.

Come, be a part of IIM Shillong Golf Cup Season 10!
After all it’s time to Tee Off, It’s time for an escapade!

As a part of the observance of Vigilance Awareness Week (Oct 30-Nov 4), Padmashri Patricia Mukhim, the editor of Shillong Times gave an illuminating talk at IIM Shillong on ''Corruption Free India: Role of Management Students."

The talk elicited several questions and responses and focussed on the ills of corruption and the way forward. Emphasising on the role of students, she said, "Voice is an agency in a democracy. Without voice, we are not full citizens of the country, and many people in our country are not a part of that voice. We can’t expect government alone to tackle corruption. We need strong civil institutions and whistleblowers to address corruption." She also talked about the roles and responsibility of the media in bringing forward the truth and the pressures associated with it.

Focussing on the North-East, Ms Mukhim made the students cognizant of the ongoing events in the state of Meghalaya and talked about the dire need for reforms and action, especially in the healthcare sector. Talking about the importance of the masses, she said, “We need to analyze contracts because huge monetary costs are involved in that. An informed electorate is important in identifying and resolving such issues.”
