  • (1888PressRelease) May 25, 2011 - The International Management Institute (IMI) continues to add glorious milestones to its legacy of 30 years as it has been ranked third in intellectual capital among all the business schools in India. IMI is renowned as India's first corporate sponsored B school. Sponsorships from major corporate giants, such as RPG Group, ITC, SAIL, Tata Chemicals, Nestle and many others clearly indicate the level of trust majority of companies have in IMI's academic excellence. Accreditations and remarkable rankings of IMI by numerous professional agencies, business magazines, and other reputed management institutes testify the place of esteem IMI enjoys.

    To bring the quality management education within the reach of more students from eastern regions of India, IMI introduces two new campuses at Kolkata and Bhubaneswar. These campuses are set to add new dimensions to the existing reputation of IMI to provide the quality management education. Located at the capital cities of West Bengal and Orissa, these two business schools are two new jewels in the crown of educational excellence IMI brings to the country. Despite being newer in terms of their foundation, IMI Kolkata and IMI Bhubaneswar are going to maintain the same level of quality, mentoring and academic rigour, utilizing the expertise of the same renowned faculty from IMI Delhi. IMI Bhubaneswar and IMI Kolkata will be offering PGDM programs counting on the same richest intellectual capital for which, IMI has been awarded the third rank in India.

    Relying on his decades of experience and vision of seeing IMI Kolkata as a center of excellence in management education, Dr. Asish Bhattacharyya, Director, IMI Kolkata said, "IMI Kolkata shall earn global recognition as a Centre of Excellence in management education. It will produce socially sensitive, globally aware and value driven individuals, capable of providing leadership. It shall give equal importance to teaching and research, which is contextual and relevant to India. The sole objective of all the activities that the institute will undertake is to impact management practices, particularly in India and its neighbouring countries." In an answer to a question about the future view of IMI Kolkata, he confidently responded, "In the foreseeable future, IMI-K will emerge as the best business school in Eastern India."

    Emphasising the importance of knowledge creation and the related gaps in the education system new IMI institutes aim to bridge, IMI's Director General Dr. Pritam Singh mentions "Everyone is talking about making India becoming a knowledge hub but that is not possible if our business schools do not start emphasizing on knowledge creation. Even if there have been creation and dissemination of knowledge in few cases, there is no application of knowledge. Most schools are not holistic or integrated which is a major issue."

    IMI aims to continue its journey of excellence with IMI Kolkata and IMI Bhubaneswar. All the distinguishing features of IMI Delhi, such as quality of education, faculty, infrastructure, corporate linkages, diversity in classrooms, financial aid and excellent placement assistance will be considered as the building blocks for the new campuses. With this strong a foundation, it doesn't seem an overstatement that IMI's new campuses will raise the bar of standards already set by IMI Delhi.
