The first and only ‘triple-accredited’ business school in India, the Indian Institute of Management, Calcutta (IIMC), is rated among the best management institutes in the country. Over the years, it has evolved into an institution of world repute that imparts high-quality management education.

The IIMC has emerged as an international centre of excellence, offering management education rooted in Indian ethos and societal values. The institute strives to develop imaginative and ethical future leaders, capable of managing change and transformation in a globally competitive environment and in advancing the theory and practice of management.

The autonomous body is a pioneer in management education. It offers postgraduate and doctoral level programmes, executive training programmes, research and consulting activities. The IIMC has blossomed into Asia’s finest business school with strong ties with business communities, making it an effective mechanism for promoting professional management practices in Indian organisations. 

The Entrepreneurship Cell of IIMC has strong ties with TiE and the National Entrepreneurship Network, a non-profit organisation that aims to create and support high-achievers among entrepreneurs in the country. The institute recently launched ‘Startup Readiness, Growth and Education (S.U.R.G.E): An Entrepreneurship Programme’ in partnership with HUGHES Global Education India. Through a unique blend of multi-disciplinary learning, the six-month-long premium education programme introduces professionals to various aspects of business and helps them acquire the right mindset, skills and knowledge for a successful venture. 

Apart from its five full-time academic programmes, the IIMC offers executive education programmes, management programmes for Armed Forces officers, research and consultancy programmes. The institute offers distance education programmes in collaboration with HughesNet Global Education and NIIT Imperia. As a member of the Global Alliance in Management Education (CEMS), the IIMC also offers the CEMS Masters in International Management degree. 

The IIMC started its Executive Programme in Operations Management (EPOM) this year, a tailor-made course designed to meet the needs of working professionals. The EPOM aims to equip managers and practitioners with the concept and practices of Operations Management in the services and manufacturing sectors. The IIMC has an extensive network of partner B-schools worldwide through which it conducts student exchange programmes. 

The institute has an alumni network that is 15,000-plus-strong who include Rohit Chadda (CEO for Digital Business at Zee Group), Ashish Chauhan (MD and CEO of the Bombay Stock Exchange), Indra Nooyi (Chairman and CEO of PepsiCo) and Prakash Apte (Former Director of IIMB).
