Under the slogan “Take the Lead”, this apex student body of the Institute holds the responsibility of integrating academic and co-curricular spheres of students’ lives. The Council is responsible for managing all the clubs & committees at IIM Shillong and ensuring that there is seamless coordination between them all.

Vision: To lead from the front and be the torchbearers of effective and purpose-driven leadership for the whole batch

Mission:  To promote a sense of harmony and camaraderie within the participants of the Institute, act as a voice for participants in front of the administration, and provide service to the community at large.

The Student Council organises and/or coordinates several Flagship events throughout.

  • Business Leadership Summit (BLS) which entails interactions with industry stalwarts through panel discussions on the most pressing issues of the industry. Panels are held for various domains like Consulting, IT and Analytics, Marketing, Operations, Finance, Human Resources, etc.
  • IIM Shillong Golf Cup – the flagship event that provides a great platform for corporates and B Schools to battle it out on the greens and provides a hands-on experience to the participants, who learn nuances of management by organising an event of such grandeur
  • Khlur-Thma – which literally translates to “War of Stars” is the institute’s Annual B-School Fest. It sees robust participation from across the country’s premier B-schools, wherein all the teams vie for the top spots across 8 flagship events.
  • ‘Nurturing Minds’ – It is a teaching initiative in the memory of Late Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam. The initiative captures the essence of Dr Kalam’s philosophy, “Education for All, for Development” by leveraging the availability of resources within the institute to contribute to the local community. It aims to touch the lives of the young and underprivileged students in and around Shillong by facilitating better learning and inculcating self-confidence in them. Currently in its third year of operation, the response to ‘Nurturing Minds’ has been overwhelming.

The Council also actively assists the Institute’s Administration in conducting the Study Abroad Program. Since the commencement of this programme, MoUs have been signed with globally recognised universities in Europe, Singapore & China. The experiences gained from interactions in foreign universities will go a long way in moulding the participants to become successful managers with a global outlook.
