Afilated to Indian Institute of Management

IIMA has evolved from being India's premiermanagement institute to a notable international school of management in justfour decades.
It all started with Dr. Vikram Sarabhai and afew spirited industrialists realising that agriculture, education, health,transportation, population control, energy and public administration were vitalelements in a growing society, and that it was necessary to efficiently managethese industries.

"The result was the creation of the Indian Institute of Management,Ahmedabad in 1961 as an autonomous body with the active collaboration of theGovernment of India, Government of Gujarat and the industrial sectors." Itwas evident that to have a vision was not enough. Effective governance andquality education were seen as critical aspects.

From the very start the founders introduced the concept of facultygovernance: all members of the faculty play an important role in administeringthe diverse academic and non-academic activities of the Institute. Theempowerment of the faculty has been the propelling force behind the highquality of learning experience at IIMA. The Institutehad initial collaboration with Harvard Business School. This collaborationgreatly influenced the Institute's approach to education. Gradually, it emergedas a confluence of the best of Eastern and Western values.
