The Indian Institute of Management Bangalore (IIMB) is a leading graduate school of management in Asia. Under the IIM Act of 2017, IIMB is an Institute of National Importance.
IIMB has 108 full-time faculty members, about 1,200 students across various degree-granting programmes and nearly 5,000 annual Executive Education participants.
Our logo carries a proclamation in Sanskrit, तेजस्वि नावधीतमस्तु (tejasvi navadhitamastu), which translates to ‘let our study be enlightening’. Our vision is to be a global, renowned academic institution fostering excellence in management, innovation and entrepreneurship for business, government and society.
Located in India’s high technology capital, we are in close proximity to some of the leading corporate houses in the country, ranging from information technology to consumer product companies, giving us the added advantage of integrating classroom knowledge with practical experience.
Our long-duration programmes comprise the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.), the Post Graduate Programme in Management (PGP), the Post Graduate Programme in Management – Business Analytics (PGP-BA), the Executive Post Graduate Programme in Management (EPGP), and the Post Graduate Programme in Enterprise Management (PGPEM).
We offer the NS Ramaswamy Pre-doctoral (NSR Pre-doc) Fellowship, as a Certificate programme, with the aim of increasing social diversity of management academia in India.
We also offer the Mahatma Gandhi National Fellowship (MGNF) programme. MGNF is a Certificate Programme in Public Policy and Management offered by IIMs. It has been designed at the initiative of the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE), Government of India (GoI), and implemented in collaboration with State Skill Development Missions (SSDMs).
Along with 11 disciplinary areas, we have ten centres of excellence that offer courses and conduct research on interesting questions facing various sectors of industry.
We have key partnerships and collaborations with Goldman Sachs and Kotak Bank for women entrepreneurship, with Michael and Susan Dell Foundation for incubation of non-profits, and with NITI Aayog for scaling up of new ventures.
We are committed to make deep social impact using technology-enabled education. Towards this end, we offer Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). We are the first management school in India to offer MOOCs on the edX platform. We are also the coordinating institute for management education for SWAYAM, GoI’s online education platform.
We have taken several steps to meet the vision set for IIMB. These include hiring high quality faculty, enhancing the quality of research, emphasizing internationalization, expanding our activities in the field of entrepreneurship, in both research and mentoring, scaling up in terms of student intake in all programmes, deepening our engagement with the alumni, improving infrastructure, and improving administration and governance.
We were accredited by the EFMD Quality Improvement System (EQUIS) for a period of five years in 2016. EQUIS is a global school accreditation system run by the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD) that specializes in higher education institutions of management and business administration. The five-year accreditation, the highest that EQUIS confers, is testament to the fact that the evaluating team was confident of our ability to sustain efforts undertaken to achieve excellent standards in education, internationalization and research.
We have a vibrant Student Exchange Programme with several partner universities across North America, South America, Europe, Asia, and Australia.
We have a deep engagement with the international network, Global Network for Advanced Management (GNAM), which includes 32 eminent business schools around the world.
We are developing our second campus in Jigani, about 27 km from the Bannerghatta Road campus. We are on an exciting trajectory of expansion and growth, and we welcome you to join us on this journey.
