Why Innoviz?

Steve Jobs once said that innovation is what distinguishes a leader from a follower. The successful exploitation of new ideas is crucial to a business being able to improve its processes, bring new and improved products and services to market, increase its efficiency and, most importantly, improve its profitability. Innovation is the cornerstone of sustained economic growth and prosperity. It is the using of new ideas that lead to the making of any new products, services or processes. Further, marketplaces - whether local, regional, national or global - are becoming highly competitive. Competition has increased as a result of wider access to new technologies and the increased trading and knowledge-sharing opportunities offered by the Internet. With the stories of many famous business leaders beginning through innovations of new or current processes and technology, schools understand the importance of developing the ability to form innovative ideas and implementing them in the future business world. Like, Netflix began a small business and today’s Netflix’s market value now stands at $32.9 billion. The top business schools have realized that they can hold on to their reputation only if they are continually innovative. This realization has inspired them to spark innovations in their Management curricula and in the format and delivery of their management specializations. Over the years, top business schools have functioned as workshops of new business ideas. MIT Sloan, for example, has not only pioneered theories but has also been successful in making these innovative ideas work in the real world. The Harvard Business School has been fostering entrepreneurship through its Innovation Lab, encouraging leadership building through the Leadership Initiative, and driving health care research through its Health Care Initiative. For over a decade and a half now, Stanford GSB’s Center for Social Innovation has been cultivating leaders who can solve the world’s biggest social and environmental problems with the most innovative solutions. Dartmouth’s Tuck School of Business and NYU Stern School of Business has been focusing on producing “serial innovators.” In ‘Innoviz’ we will quest for the golden idea and looking for the appropriate answer - "What one idea would revamp management education in globalization era?"

Objectives of Innoviz

To incubate and specialize potential of business students’ attentiveness about the shifting paradigm of Business Studies, and how this (Business Education) could impact the social and economic development of the regions they cover. This provides an opportunity to learn and update last year’s learning experience of people's attentiveness towards Business Studies. This could help to plan the future direction of Business Studies by comparing the planned figures and goals with results achieved (in the current academic year 2019-20) Innoviz would provide new information, experiences, and new ideas that could help to set goals for the future development of the business Studies at IAR
