The profile of the CEO's in the making at the country's top business school has changed drastically in the last three decades. Growing pressures have turned him/her less jovial, more introvert and led to lesser social interactions as compared to 33 years ago, says a study conducted to understand the changes in student perceptions at Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Ahmedabad.
T.V. Rao, adjunct professor at IIM-A, has recently followed up on a study he did in 1977 of student preferences of the institutional environment of IIM-A. The batches of 2009-11 and 2010-12 were surveyed using the same questionnaire and the results show a sea change. Students today perceive the campus as business like and system driven. There is less debate and more conformity to rules and regulations. Social interaction seems less and focused achievement is preferred adding a lot of seriousness to life, says Rao. The study has been published as a chapter Change at IIM-A in the book Nurturing Institutional Excellence: Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad. Back in 1977, 38 students responded to the questionnaire. This time, 108 students were surveyed.
