Established in 1996, Indian Institute of Management Indore is the sixth in the prestigious IIM family of management schools. The institute was chosen to be set up in Indore to give an impetus to management education in central India and has ever since been acting as the pioneer in the field of management, interfacing with the industry, government sectors and PSUs.
The essence of management, IIM I believes, lies in managing one's own ambitions and forging ahead consciously. "A strong theoretical foundation is the basis of good corporate practice" this, coupled with a grounding in management as it is practiced, is the underlying theme of the flagship Post Graduate Programme (PGP). Spanning two years the programme is benchmarked against similar programmes of the best business schools in the world. Experiential learning, IT orientation, and social sensitivity are some of the unique features of the programme.
Situated atop a scenic hillock, the beautiful 193 acre campus provides an ideal backdrop for some of the brightest minds in the country to work their best to become the best they can be. To back this up, IIM Indore has a solid infrastructure ranging from a very beautiful campus and hostels to a strong IT backbone and the latest in teaching aids. The geographical proximity to the fastest growing industrial belt in India and the presence of Special Economic Zones around Indore provide the right environment for both giving hands-on experience to the students and in enabling the industry to make use of the wealth of management expertise available in the institute.
IIM Indore’s achievements in such a short span of time can be attributed to its innovative spirit, its will to excel, and, to a great extent, to the relationship it has developed with the Indore community.
"Prizes maketh the institute" - the whole of IIM Indore community believes in this old adage.
Over the years, the sincere efforts put in by the PGP participants of IIM Indore have borne rich fruits - they have proved their mettle in a variety of international and national level competitions winning a host of prizes. They have made the institute proud by participating with distinction and winning in a number of events organized by the various management and corporate organizations. The annual management festivals organized by the top business schools of the country have always brought out the best in our students. They have made a mark by winning consistently and underlined the fact IIM Indore can benchmark itself with the best in the world. Typically, the events in these competitions span over all functional areas of management, ranging from paper presentations to leadership games and IIM Indore students have been able to showcase their talent and sharp business acumen in all disciplines. IRIS, our own management festival, also saw IIM Indore teams emerging triumphant over teams from other premier business schools of the country - highlighting that the students of IIM Indore can simultaneously play the role of good hosts (as all our visiting friends have pointed out) and excellent performers.
IIM Indore students have come out with flying colours even in international forum. Over the last two years, the participants of IIM Indore have made regular contributions to the ISC-Symposium, held annually at the University of St. Gallen Switzerland, which provides a neutral platform to promote discussion between students, corporate, bureaucrats and political leaders across the national and cultural boundaries. Judged by an eminent panel of judges, the symposium invites 250 best contributors out of more than 1,000 entries from over 70 countries. Over the last two years, IIM Indore students have been among the select few chosen from India to attend the symposium. Earlier, Atu
