Real Impact is improving prospects for young girls in rural communities

BIMTECH was invited to become  one of the pilot schools along with IMD, Switzerland to showcase “Real Impact” of business schools, a project jointly launched by the Business School Impact System (BSIS), European Foundation of Management Development (EFMD) Global Network, Brussels and Emerald Publishing, UK. Both BSIS and Emerald are committed to advancing the positive impact of business schools on society.  This is one of the project’s that furthers Emerald’s goal of highlighting best practices of impact and encouraging others to learn from these examples.

BIMTECH’s journey of impact began when it decided to earn the label of Business School Impact System (BSIS) offered by European Foundation of Management Development (EFMD), Brussels. Going through the process, we realized that accountability should move from measuring output to measuring outcomes and impact. After receiving the BSIS label in 2019, the institute committed to measuring impact of its activities and adopted “building impact with quality” as its motto. This raises the question- What is the real impact of research? Is it the publication in top ranked journals? Is it the citation counts? Or does it go beyond that and make a difference in the world.

We appreciate the initiative by BSIS and Emerald to launch the “Real Impact” as their endeavour to influence positive change and to make research more accessible and discoverable. Two of BIMTECH’s initiatives have been showcased to support the meaningful real world impact.


Imparting life skill training to rural girls

In 2015, BIMTECH carried out an assessment of the rural village, Neemka, following a request from a local member of parliament under the ‘Sansad Adarsh Gram Yojna’ banner, which aims to trigger the development of Indian villages. In years to follow, girls of the Neemka village have been given vital help and support by the Chiraiya Project an initiative by BIMTECH that has improved the educational, economic and life prospects for hundreds of villagers but, above all, it has engendered hope.
