For the future leader
who will wear many hats.
Presenting Welingkar's two year
S. P. Mandali’s
Prin. L. N. Welingkar Institute of Management Development & Research
From the Group
The year gone by has been one full of
challenges, a true test of the survival of the
fittest in many ways. It became more than
evident that innovation, active execution,
bottom of the pyramid, value creation and high engagement quotient will be the mainstay of business school
education and businesses.
Welingkar Education has leveraged the challenges in the last two years to train and sharpen the mind and soul of all
its management graduates towards creating meaning in the time they have chosen to invest.
We nourished minds with several interesting courses, subjects and verticals. One of the courses was the Integrative
Manager – a completely immersive experience wherein the case study approach was combined with the design
thinking approach to develop decision making abilities in a business situation. The process basically brought out the
wonderful characters of leaders, analysts, thinkers, doers, innovators within each participant.
We nourished souls through courses such as wisdom practices and connecting with people on the fringes of society.
And to bring meaning out of the learning, we engaged students all through their Welingkar experience in projects.
Projects such as ‘sustainable solutions for energy – an ethnographic study’ in rural India, then extended to studying
patterns related to the retail, telecom, finance and so many other facets of real life experiences and usages throwing
up insights across different business sectors that if researched and studied have great potential. And true to our
philosophy of ‘We Share’ we extended this knowledge to students, corporates, and faculty across the globe who
engaged with us through various lecture, Round table Seminars, Workshops.
In the brochure ahead we have unfolded several initiatives, experiences, accomplishments. Through these we intend
sharing what the WeSchool Environment is about. I invite you to explore this World of Welingkar, both Mumbai and
Bengaluru, to sense the experience you could expect as a student at Welingkar.

Today, markets change at a pace that makes even Moore’s law seems archaic. With advances in the fields of
communication, material sciences, genetics: nothing seems impossible.
How does a Business manager adapt in such times? Design thinking with its adaptive and integrative approach,
seems to provide the way forward. A designer converts imagination into reality with her/ his unique abilities of seeing
co-relations across diverse domains, intuitive skills of unbiased observations, a highly user centric approach, a
tendency towards quick prototyping. A merger of the intuitive approach of a designer and the analytical approach of
a Business manager has given birth to the term ‘Business design’.

Students learn not only technical skills demanded by travel in the wilderness, but they also develop long lasting
attitudes that are the hallmark of our program, such as adaptability, responsibility, confidence, integrity, persistence,
the ability to work with others - qualities that will last a life time. The activities planned out, bring out the importance of
planning coupled with timely action. Knowledge is important but knowing how to apply it, is critical.
The outbound programs focus on -
< Self Knowledge
< The ability to go beyond self imposed limitations
< Acceptance of responsibility
< Physical fitness
< Team dynamics
< Time management
< Stress management
< Creativity and problem solving
The program is one of the highlights of the foundation fortnight, which is an integrative module with focus on
brushing fundamental aspects of management on the new students.
It is an aberration to classroom teaching, the students are taken to a remote place outside the chaos of main city
where they are taught basic management skill, but in a different way.
As the saying goes, “Action speaks for itself”; the future managers are made to play various games & activities which
in a way simulate the corporate world and are expected to win every challenge. Each game is designed to test focus,
observation skills, team management & leadership qualities. Students learn to manage teams and to be a part of
them by walking the way themselves. Lessons learned during an outbound program leave a deep impression on
every student and help them to evaluate their strengths & weaknesses.
Mumbai's first innovation Lab and center for Memetics initiated by
the Welingkar Institute of Management is a hub of business ideas

interesting, workable and completely different solutions. innoWE is
a beginning on the journey Welingkar has taken to imbibe design
principles into Business Thinking.
It is a space where thinking is stimulated, ideas germinate and are
nurtured along to become paradigm-defining businesses. It is a
place where, students are encouraged to voice the weirdest of their Mr. Kishore Biyani - MD & CEO, Future Group

insights, design and create innovative products/services or innovative business models, which can be made
applicable to the corporate world.
Welcome to innoWE !
Prarambh - Bengaluru
At Welingkar our life revolves around discovering, researching, erring & succeeding. Students toil with ideas in an
effort to germinate them from seeds to sprouts and from sprouts to trees; trees that grow big and strong and yet have
their roots deep and firm in the soil. This thought has given birth to Prarambh, the E-Cell at Welingkar, Bengaluru.
Our students believe, ‘We think not of ourselves as scientists trying to incubate, but rather as naturalists who try to
cultivate. We believe that Entrepreneurship is a spirit and it can be inculcated in every individual irrespective of the
choice of career or work. We endeavor to create an environment conducive to experiential learning.’
This matches our approach of ‘design thinking’ in the field of management education. It provides students a great
scope for Innovation, which in turn provides the ideal launch pad for their entrepreneurial ventures. This ideology is
reflected in the very design of the campus at Bangalore, where every classroom has the eco-system of an innovation
lab. The eco-system includes aspects like completely flexible seating, allowing for the classroom to extend beyond
the four walls. In addition regular visits and interactions with business leaders, entrepreneurs, innovators and
designers help to provide the students with the required direction to their limitless thought process.
Welingkar in association with Nina Foundation launched a 'healthy' trend with the Wellness Seminar series headed
by Dr. Ms. Ketna L Mehta, (editor & Associate Dean, Research), who has completed her PhD in Healthcare
Management from SNDT University, Mumbai, of which Welingkar is an extension centre . The Wellness Seminar is a
unique initiative empowering the community through the power of information. Nina Foundation is an NGO
established for the holistic well being and rehabilitation of people with spinal injuries in India. To bridge the gap of lack
of world class rehabilitation services, 6 wellness seminars were conducted through 2009 & 2010 targeted at people
with spinal injury and the community at large. Welingkar campus being one the very few B-Schools in the country
being wheelchair accessible welcomed the participants in a barrier free environment. The audience comprised of
extraordinary achievers with spinal injury as well as the who's who of the healthcare, media, education and the
corporate world. Once again this collaborative initiative emphasized that each human has great potential and can
have a positive impact on the society, enabling them to take flight again.

Maharashtra and Rajasthan in the month of June and July. Phase 1 involved using ethnographic research
methodology to observe the energy interventions in the daily life of people. Phase 2 is an ongoing study which
involves analysis of all the observations made in Phase 1.
Brand Valuation – Students in Action A team of Welingkar students earned an opportunity to work with Brand
Finance, which has carved a niche for itself as an international Brand Valuation major. They were part of the core team
responsible for evaluating 'India's Most Valuable Brands-2009’ in collaboration with The Economic Times. This is a
part of the Institute’s conscious effort to map future trends and encourage students in defining them.
We Stories - Research Mindset
Students at Welingkar are encouraged to keep the
‘curious’ alive all through their tenure. The Welingkar
Research Center, equipped with research resources -
reports, databases, software and most importantly
highly demanding and equally encouraging faculty,
make sure there is enough hunger for research.
One of the proud moments when ‘research met
reward’ is enumerated below.
A technology consultant with 2.5 years of experience
in an IT firm entered Welingkar. Fascinated with the Winners in an international conference on “Mergers and
resources at the research center; he participated in Acquisitions for Business Excellence”
various research competitions with a great vigour. His
thirst for knowledge transcended all constraints.
Result: 21 awards across the country, 11 national
awards for one single business plan.
The Welingkar Research Center (WRC) is an initiative
undertaken by the Welingkar Institute as part of its
commitment to corporates and its student community.
Our research findings are disseminated directly through
publications, conferences or seminars and indirectly
through case studies and course development for 1st prize at the AIMA 6th NCMS, for a paper on Innovate,
MBA, PhD and Executive Education Programs. Restructure, Reorganize: Challenges for India Inc.
We Stories - Entrepreneurship
The Intrapreneurial / Entrepreneurial bug is nurtured and
encouraged at Welingkar. Welingkar not only
encourages students to test their ideas at a micro level,
but also provides adequate guidance and infrastructure
to help their dreams come true. In Mumbai, an
enterprising group of four students identified a lack of
initiatives towards grooming of students in various
institutes across India, especially in Tier II cities. They
decided to explore the need-gap further and came out
with a b-plan which benefited the students as well. They
are successfully running their proposed training
program in 2 colleges from Nasik where modules on
personal interviews, group discussions, effective
communication skills and presentations are being imparted. They travel every weekend to Nasik to train these
students. Similarly, Prof. Madhavi Lokhande, faculty at Welingkar, Bengaluru, is committed to help women in a low
income slum in Bengaluru who have home-run businesses get bank loans to ensure that the money is managed well
and they successfully grow their ventures. Madhavi has helped 13 women get bank loans and worked with 12 others
with their business models. A participant of Goldman Sachs 10,000 Women Program – Tools for Growing Your
Business, organized in association with the National Entrepreneurship Network, Madhavi is inspired to put her
learning into practice with grassroot entrepreneurs.
We Stories - Real Time Solutions
While Welingkar is doing its best to provide the
intangible framework to students, it aims at real-time
interactions with the corporate world for students.
This July, the Prime Services Division, Credit Suisse,
US, was able to acquire 10 new clients on the basis of an
analyst report on 'US Markets' prepared by an intern
from Welingkar, Mumbai. His efforts were recognized
and commended by the Director, Prime Services, US.
As the world’s leading catastrophe risk modeling
agency, Risk Management Solutions (RMS) has
A post-it exercise to unearth pain points
provided scientifically-based models and technology to
help the insurance industry quantify catastrophe risk for over two decades. Its products and services are primarily
used for managing risk in developed regions of the world where insurance penetration is high. RMS understands that
quantification of risk is essential but not enough in order to provide insurance protection to the Bottom of Pyramid
(BOP) populations. RMS’s agenda has been to bring together interested but isolated stakeholders on both the
supply as well as demand side hand in hand, aimed at effective implementation of ideas in this space. RMS in
association with the Welingkar Institute of Management, Bengaluru is conducting a research study on the
outstanding portfolio of the microcredit industry in Andhra Pradesh.

We understand that today it is very essential to create employable people and that is why we wish to facilitate a
dialogue with the corporate world to know better what is expected from B-Schools today. Towards achieving this
goal, Welingkar taken some decisive strides to look beyond the obvious. One such initiative being “Confluence: A
Constructive Collision Of The Greatest Business Minds - a series of Industry Roundtables”.
To engage in 'immersive techniques' and interact with 'people in the thick of action' is integral to the learning
methods at Welingkar. Last year Welingkar organised Round Tables across 12 industry verticals. Through these
Round Tables Welingkar brought together over 600 industry professionals, who shared real-time challenges and
some of these are live projects that students are working on now at Welingkar.
Marketing Round Table - Bengaluru Media Round Table - Mumbai
Alumni Round Tables
Welingkar also holds Round Tables for its Alumni at both the Mumbai & Bengaluru campuses. These Round Tables
allow the alumni to discuss their experiences after their Welingkar education. Welingkar also learnt about what
changes or improvements could be made to suit the changing environment in the sectors discussed. It grew to
become a great success with the presence of some of the young and esteemed alumni who gave various insights
and practical knowledge. The Alumni Round Tables proved to be an overall learning experience for not only the
students but also the management and the visiting alumni. Students also had an opportunity to have an enriching
interaction with Welingkar’s esteemed alumni Mr. Ridham Desai, Managing Director & Head of Research - Morgan
Stanley India. Mr. Ridham Desai's address to the students was primarily on the Global Financial Melt Down, reasons
for the same and the road ahead towards recovery. Mr. Desai addressed students' questions which further helped
the forum to develop a perspective on the global financial markets.
Mr. Ridham Desai interacting with students Alumni Round Table - Bengaluru
Alumni are the face of college in the industry. They are a very important asset for any college. We at Welingkar nurture
this thought. We have maintained a constant association with our Alumni. In an effort in this direction, the Alumni
council of Welingkar with the help of the faculty organised the Alumni Meet 2010 at both the campuses. The main
motto of the event was to help the alumni to refresh their memories associated with college, reconnect with the
college and have fun as well. It was for this reason the event had a casual feel attached to it. The Alumni Meet proved
to be a rewarding and enjoyable gathering for the alumni and a proud and gratifying experience for Welingkar.

together so many alumni from various batches and backgrounds together, at the Welingkar Alumni Meet, held in
Dubai. Many alumni were happy to be associated with their alma mater by means of offering internships and
employment opportunities to our students in the Gulf, offering research assignments, training expertise and other
forms of support, where there is a possibility to collaborate. Promises were made to be in contact and form a support
network which Welingkar has always been so proud of!
