About Humanities & Liberal Arts in Management Area
Humanities & Liberal Arts in Management is one of the eight academic areas at the Indian Institute of Management Kozhikode (IIMK). In this area we study human behavior and condition in relation to Business Management. The primary focus of the area is on Human Communication, Law, Social and Political aspects of Indian Societies, Culture, History, and Ethics. The area is expanding its horizon. There would be many more courses in near future that would inform our students about the philosophy of Humanities & Liberal Arts and how they can be applied in Management Education. We believe that, in addition to typical issues of management education, lessons from Humanities & Liberal Arts would foster imagination of our students further. Unlike empirical approaches of the Natural Sciences, Humanities & Liberal arts primarily use methods to address the issues of human behavior and condition that are primarily analytical, critical and speculative in nature. Our primary objective is to inform our students about the impact of humanities & liberal arts in society; so that when they turn manager and face the corporate world they place humanity above anything else.
