19 Oct

Chennai, October 17, 2014

Professor M. S. Ananth, Former Director, IIT Madras, today launched MCMF (My Choice, My Future) – an online, indigenous, self-assessment form that has been developed through the collaborative efforts of faculty and alumni of the Department of Management Studies, IIT Madras and BodhBridge Educational Services Private Limited, Chennai.  The event was presided over by Prof. R Nagarajan, Dean (International & Alumni Relations), IIT Madras and Prof. T. J. Kamalanabhan, Head, Department of Management Studies, IIT Madras was the guest of honour.

The MCMF (My Choice, My Future) form enables respondents, mostly students in the higher secondary stage and beyond, to gain a better understanding of the underlying dimensions of their individual personalities characterized using twelve personality traits.  It also enables them to map their modal personality dimensions to relatively more suitable career choices/opportunities.

The MCMF form will be available for use in multiple Indian languages (Thamizh, Telugu, Hindi, Kannada, Malayalam, etc.) in order to enable students from various socio-cultural backgrounds to access it.

MCMF will be available for free for a period of one month and can be accessed through http://www.btechguru.com.

The MCMF form has been developed based on research and interviews with working professionals.  Pilot tests conducted using school and college students have yielded very strong and reliable results, and the form has received very good feedback.  The MCMF form can also be used by young working professionals and by Human Resources Management Departments of business and industrial organizations who wish to make efficient job or responsibility allocations.

Professor L. S. Ganesh stated that “It is very important for our youth to have a reliable way of assessing their personalities, especially from the perspective of their careers.  Alignment of one’s personality with his career is necessary for experiencing a basic sense of professional satisfaction and for greater productivity.  It also enables one to identify specific aspects of personal development for career growth.

Professor R. Nagarajan observed that “It is heartening to note that an alumnus of IIT Madras has developed a tool that enables students to make career decisions based on their aptitude.  This will greatly reduce extraneous influences and lead to happier, more fulfilling lives.
