India is going through a very interesting and challenging time both economically and socially. We at iFEEL believe that entrepreneurship and leadership are critical to India's prosperity, economic development and social equality across all levels of society. The Institute fosters and nurtures leaders capable of making a difference in the management and the corporate.

Gandhiji had once quoted, “Be the Change you want to see in the world”. Education, entrepreneurship, and leadership are the most powerful weapons which you can use to change the world. The way in which we prepare ourselves to lead change today will dictate the effectiveness of our governance framework in the future.

The vision of iFEEL is to develop and nurture leadership and entrepreneurship excellence. Rightly, iFEEL has focused on designing practice oriented PGDM program, learning and a contemporary industry-focused curriculum driven by a strong corporate interface, which brings overall transformation in students.

Albert Einstein once said “I have no special talents, I am only passionately curious”. iFEEL's campus in Karla, Lonavala is one of the finest management education infrastructures in the country with the latest technology on campus which provides the right ambience to stimulate the intellectual. At iFEEL, entrepreneurship and leadership are a passion. We promote entrepreneurship in the region through active participation of faculty and students. Regular student and faculty interaction with the giants from the corporate world is helping us in grooming our students into leaders and not just the managers of yesteryears.

Our faculty who are entrepreneurs and industry leaders themselves share their experience and knowledge with the student in a practical action-learning environment, designed to stimulate insight and understanding of the current practices at the market place.

iFEEL also makes an attempt to conduct collaborative research in global, cross-cultural areas of management, jointly with top-notch research driven institutes worldwide. The institute visualizes itself as a training ground in business management for students to help transform them into corporate leaders and entrepreneurs.

It is our constant effort to improve our research record and take up projects to enrich the teaching-learning process.

I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to our Karla, Lonavala campus and discover for yourself what this great institute could mean to you. Let's all join together to make our hopes and aspirations for a better tomorrow a reality. Come and find yourself what you and iFEEL can do together.

Institute for Future Education, Entrepreneurship & Leadership (iFEEL) is a B-School with a difference. Our philosophical underpinnings are based on 5 key concepts; ignite, involve, innovate, inspire and inculcate, commonly known within iFEEL as ‘i5’.

All our efforts are towards igniting young minds of our students, involving them in our decision-making processes, creating an environment of innovation, inspiring them to reach for the stars and inculcating in them the values which will stand them in good stead throughout their working life and beyond.

By “learning from more experienced learners” our students arrive at an understanding of concepts guided by faculty, but the responsibility for learning rests with them. Giving students not only something to learn but also something to do demands thinking and then learning will naturally result. Our pedagogy ensures a demonstrable relevance to the practical world helping students to analyze, theorize and intellectually engage with the world around them.

Based on our interaction and the feedback received from industry and other stakeholders we endeavor to impart the following skills to our students:

Analytical abilities, Ability to synthesize or combine parts of a whole in new and different ways, Communication, Ability to work in teams, Leadership /initiative, Strong work ethic, Conceptual knowledge

We strongly believe we have a set of gifted students who will be able to add value to your organization. We would be more than happy to arrange an interaction with our students at a mutually convenient date and time. We welcome you to our green and picturesque campus. Should you for some reason not find the time to visit our campus, our students will meet you at a time and place convenient to you.

We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship.
