Student Council

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.

About the Council

The Student Council organises the annual fest of the institute that comprises of the flagship event- IIM Shillong Golf Cup; Khlur-Thma- the Annual B-School Fest and Business Leadership Summit (BLS). The flagship event provides a great platform for corporates and B Schools to battle it out on the greens and provides a hands-on experience to the students, who learn nuances of management by organising an event of such grandeur. For the ninth year in a row, the Student Council has been instrumental in transforming the event into a Magnum Opus eagerly awaited by Corporates and Students alike. The Annual B-School Fest, Khlur-Thma which means “War of Stars” has captured the imagination of students, creating a place for itself in the annual calendar of B-School activities across institutes.

'Nurturing Minds', the teaching initiative in the memory of Late Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam is the brainchild of the Student Council and the Administration. The initiative captures the essence of Dr Kalam's teachings, "Education for All, for Development" by leveraging the availability of resources with the institute to contribute to the local community. It aims to touch the lives of the young and underprivileged students in Shillong by facilitating better learning and inculcating self-confidence in them. Currently in its second year of inception, the response to 'Nurturing Minds' has been overwhelming from both the local schools in enrolling their students for the programme and the students of our institute in volunteering as teachers for the same.

Office bearers of this non-hierarchical team act as an interface between the student community and the administration, dealing with activities that touch every aspect of student life on campus and plays a pivotal role connecting the Institute and external parties.

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 mould the students to become successful managers with a global outlook
