IIM Ahmedabad


Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad (IIMA) has evolved from being India’s premier management institute to a renowned global business school in just four decades. IIMA was set up in 1961 as an autonomous body with the active collaboration of the Government of India, Government of Gujarat, and industry partners. From its very inception, the founders of IIMA introduced the process of faculty governance: members of the faculty play an important role in administering the diverse academic and non-academic activities of the institute. The resulting empowerment of the faculty has been the propelling force behind the high-quality learning experience at IIMA. The institute had an initial collaboration with Harvard Business School and this greatly influenced its approach to education. Gradually, IIMA has emerged as a visible symbol of the confluence of the best of Eastern and Western value system and ethos. (www.iimahd.ernet.in)
