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, cardiac surgeon and the founder of one of India's largest multi-speciality hospital chains.
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.
To help the student community retain and practice existing knowledge in the HR domain and stimulate their interest in the same, dHRuva organized “The InstaQuiz” competition wherein the students had to interact and send in their answers dHRuva’s Instagram handle. This is a fun way to engage the students to learn in a non-traditional way.
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 to make them Industry-ready.
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 the 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, more affluent and fruitful relationship.
Helping the student community is very integral to the existence and functioning of dHRuva. In line with this endeavour, dHRuva conceptualized and formed a WhatsApp group 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 to make them Industry-ready.
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, like Industry Experts’ Talk sessions, to help the batch with their summer and final placements. We also work towards getting live project opportunities in the field of HR to help students gain practical exposure.
