Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad

Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad

Description

IIMA has evolved from being India's premier management institute to a notable international school of management in just four decades.

It all started with Dr. Vikram Sarabhai and a few spirited industrialists realising that agriculture, education, health, transportation, population control, energy and public administration were vital elements in a growing society, and that it was necessary to efficiently manage these industries.



The result was the creation of the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad in 1961 as an autonomous body with the active collaboration of the Government of India, Government of Gujarat and the industrial sectors.



It was evident that to have a vision was not enough. Effective governance and quality education were seen as critical aspects.



From the very start the founders introduced the concept of faculty governance: all members of the faculty play an important role in administering the diverse academic and non-academic activities of the Institute. The empowerment of the faculty has been the propelling force behind the high quality of learning experience at IIMA.



The Institute had initial collaboration with Harvard Business School. This collaboration greatly influenced the Institute's approach to education. Gradually, it emerged as a confluence of the best of Eastern and Western values.

Mission



IIMA's mission is to help India and other developing countries improve their managerial practices both in the private and in the public
