IIM Udaipur - Best MBA colleges in india

Social Responsibility

Social Responsibility

A strong sense of social responsibility informs all of IIM Udaipur's activities. We are committed to giving back to society, playing a role in local development and being in the vanguard of applying principles of ecological sustainability.

Rural Immersion

In the curriculum, this is reflected in the two year MBA's mandatory Rural Immersion. We believe it is essential for future managers to understand rural India. Rural Immersion starts with a course on the Indian Social and Political Environment and continues with the class divided into five-person teams which spend a week in a village where they work closely with NGOs to appreciate on-the-ground realities and challenges faced by those at the bottom of the pyramid. In their other courses students undertake forty to fifty projects per year with companies/NGOs in the region as part of class assignments.

Student Consulting Projects

Students also make a strong contribution to social responsibility outside of class in their extra-curricular activities. Consult U, the consulting club, undertakes approximately six pro bono projects per year with regional non-profits including:

  • Designing a marketing campaign for the Sadhana women's empowerment cooperative (produces ethnic apparel)
  • Preparing a production optimization plan for Seva Mandir (Udaipur-based NGO) to aid a cooperative producing lentil.
  • Creating an overall digital presence and marketing strategy for Equitable Healthcare Consortium.


Over the course of each year approximately 50% of the students will take part in Prayatna, the social responsibility club that promotes active volunteering. Recent projects include:

  • Donation Drive – Team Prayatna requested the IIM Udaipur Community to join in raising funds for the people affected by the massive flood in various districts of Kerala. They collected both cash and in-kind funds for the flood victims to revive their lives. They collected amenities like toothpaste, toothbrushes, disposable sanitary pads, antibiotics, soaps, sanitizers, etc.
  • Campus Connect – provides mentorship and career guidance to high school students (~200-250) from underprivileged schools. This event is done in partnership with ICICI RSETI. Prayatna provided mentorship and career guidance to underprivileged students residing in those campuses of ICICI.
  • SWAR – project to convert Hindi-language textbooks into audiobooks for ~150 blind students across the state of Rajasthan

Career Support

In order to encourage and support students who are considering careers in the social sector, IIMU provides various incentives:

  • Stipend or the possibility of getting a rebate on their tuition fee
  • Placement holiday, allowing students to use campus placement services at a later date

Green Campus

As an Institute that is creating future leaders, IIMU wants to provide a practical example to students in how to apply the principles of ecological sustainability. Within a span of eight years, IIMU's new campus will be self-sufficient in terms of energy, i.e. a net-zero campus. Waste will be treated on-site and converted into reusable resources. The campus will use both technologically advanced as well as traditional models of water-harvesting. Read more.

CSR Ranking Project

IIM Udaipur is also a proud partner in the first CSR ranking project. Professor Neeti Sanan, a faculty member at IIMU, has collaborated with Namrata Rana and Utkarsh Majmudar to create the report which ranks India's top companies on the basis of their engagement with CSR. The intention is to update this research periodically to track the impact of the Companies Act 2013 in the coming years.
