dHRuva, an acronym for HR Yuva, is the HR club of IIM Udaipur. It was conceptualized and formed with the aim to bring together all the students interested in HR and explore various opportunities to enhance their interpersonal skills, knowledge, and practical experience.
dHRuva was inaugurated on 29th August 2013 by Dr. Devi Prasad Shetty, an Indian philanthropist, and cardiac surgeon and the founder of one of India's largest multi-speciality hospital chains. As the name suggests, dHRuva - being the brightest star, which enlightens and shows direction, the club strives to achieve the same through its strategic objectives:
HR Buzz is the weekly newsletter sent out to the IIMU community, with an aim to keep the community abreast with the recent happenings and developments in the field of HR.
Helping the student community is very integral to the existence and functioning of dHRuva. In line with this endeavor, dHRuva organizes "Tips from the Experts" – in which an HR manager from the industry guides the students on how to crack the interviews; and "Summer Internship Session" – in which an alumnus guides the students on how to perform and give their best during the summer internships.
Kathan is the Annual HR Magazine of IIM Udaipur. The article writing competition is floated to all the B-schools in India, and articles are invited in line with the theme of Spandan. The winning articles, industry experts' interviews, summer internship experiences by the students of IIMU, and testimonials of institute alumni are published in the magazine. The 5th edition of 'Kathan' was released on 12th November 2020. The theme for this year was "Reimagining workplaces post COVID".
In association with A4, dHRuva organizes an alumni interaction session during Flashback. The main idea behind this session is to break the ice between alumni and the students and to pave the way for a much stronger, richer, and fruitful relationship.
dHRuva constantly strives and looks for opportunities to add value to the IIMU community. We organize impromptu events as and when the opportunity presents to us. One such event is the "Industry Experts' Talk session", in which we had invited Mr. Gudakesh Kumar, HRBP at Abbott to help the batch with their final placements. We also work towards getting live project opportunities in the field of HR, towards helping students get practical exposure.
