IIMA, HBNI sign MoU to offer the custom-designed ‘Sarabhai Management Development Programme for senior executives of DAE Organisations’. 

The Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad (IIMA) collaborated with the Homi Bhabha National Institute (HBNI). The two institutions have joined hands by signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU)) under the Department of Atomic Energy (DAE).  Under this agreement, IIM-A will offer the custom-designed ‘Sarabhai Management Development Programme for senior executives of DAE Organisations’. This is the first in a series of management development programmes that IIMA will offer under the aegis of this agreement.

“The programme series was launched this morning jointly by Professor Errol D’Souza, Director, IIM-A and Shri K. N. Vyas, Secretary, Department of Atomic Energy and Chairman, Atomic Energy Commission. Also present on the occasion were Professor Vasudeva Rao, Vice Chancellor of HBNI; Professor R.B. Grover Emeritus Professor, HBNI; Professor M P Ram Mohan and Professor Vishal Gupta, Faculty in Strategic Management and Organisational Behaviour, who are the coordinators of this programme,” an official release shared by IIM-A said.

Addressing the participants, Professor Errol D’Souza, Director, IIMA said, “Considering India’s atomic energy is poised for substantial growth in the next decade, we see this as a strategic knowledge partnership. Through this, we believe we can contribute to one of the crucial sectors of the Indian economy. The government of India has embarked on an ambitious agenda to leverage the potential of nuclear power as an alternate source of energy to fulfill the country’s energy needs and reduce our dependence on other sources of energy. In this backdrop, we view this as an opportunity to train the participants on best practices that will help them apply their learnings in their roles at their respective organisations.”

According to the press release, Elaborating on the relevance of the programme for the officials of DAE, Shri K. N. Vyas, Secretary, DAE, said “Senior officers in DAE organisations are engaged in a variety of tasks including research and development, design, construction, operations, maintenance, project management, etc. In addition to the domain knowledge necessary for effective contribution in these roles, an appreciation of principles and nuances of management has great potential to enhance the effectiveness in their roles. Providing senior officers and potential leaders a formal exposure to the subject of management, with the help of eminent experts in this domain, has been one of the key objectives of human resource development programs in DAE, and I am very glad that IIM Ahmedabad will be partnering with us in this effort”.

The programme will conclude on September 4 and the senior executives from DAE institutions such as the Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited (NPCIL), Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC), Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research (IGCAR), and Bharatiya Nabhikiya Vidyut Nigam Limited (BHAVINI) are one of the participants. “The programme will provide participants with an understanding of latest business practices, management techniques and tools that will allow them to enhance efficiency and contribute to their respective organisations. Experts in the fields of management will be invited to facilitate cross-learning. Senior officers from ISRO and Indian Railways will be guest lecturers in this programme, helping the participants learn to use their domain expertise to manage their functions productively. Through this series of management development programmes, it is expected that IIMA and HBNI shall collaborate to undertake joint research on unique subjects including energy policy, risk management, talent management, leadership, public engagement, and communication,” the B-school said.
