Listening to the 1960s Bollywood classics, reading Victor Hugo and watching V. K. Murthys cinematography skills the boundaries of management studies have gone beyond marketing or finance classes. Creativity in the arts and science course offered at Indian Institute of Management - Bangalore has turned out to be a hit among students. The course is offered as an elective for second-year PGP students. Of the 380-odd students, 140 have already enrolled for the coming academic year. This is a steep increase from the 30-odd students in 2008 when the course was first offered.
Art and literature provide cues for subtle understanding of people. Management, on the other hand, is all about dealing with them. You get better understanding of the finer aspects of personalities. The course may not have an explicit connection to management like marketing or finance but is subtly related to it, said B Shekar, professor, IIM-B, who will handle the course. While music will include songs from Hindi cinema in the 1960s and some Western classics, literature readings will be from Rabindranath Tagore, Leo Tolstoy and Victor Hugo. Don’t be surprised if you see students watching movies like Love Story and Guide. As for evaluation, arte facts from three fields - music, literature and visual arts - will be displayed and students asked to write a criticism from the creativity stand point. In maths and science, students will deal with elementary lessons and look for creative high points in proofs and theorems. For instance, the derivation of 4/3 pi r cube is not taught in detail in classrooms. This is because its so imaginative and every step is a restatement of the previous one with a new interpretation, he explained. All about arts Students will get insights into fine arts, consisting of drawing, painting, literature, music and cinematography. A typical session will explore a classic arte fact that has lived for years in the hearts of people, interpret and appreciate it. Creative all Everyone in the world is creative, just that your creativity is dormant. If it has to come out, it requires inspiration. In this course, we are looking at arte facts that inspire.
