Director's Message

It is my distinct pleasure to welcome you to the website of International Management Institute, Kolkata which is one of the three Chapters of IMIs, the India’s first corporate- sponsored Business School. The information presented here is only a part of our continuing effort to serve various stakeholders such as students, staff, alumni, and our constituents in the business community.

The founders of IMI have built IMI Kolkata Chapter with a sense of clarity and purpose, which has been translated into a clear objective. This objective has been to promote IMI Kolkata as an institute which provides significant opportunities to learn, grow and most importantly, develop and hone multiple skills across various disciplines of management. At IMI Kolkata, we innovate and encourage our students to achieve.

We believe that learning should be an enjoyable process that allows students to develop their goals and aspirations, and provides them with constant support and the required study pressure to achieve those targets. Our academic collaborations with a number of business schools and universities abroad reveals an important dimension of our international focus. In a span of seven years, our graduates have shown evidence to become world citizens. They also nurture respect and a sense of achievement. They have developed ambition and pride themselves through excellence. They are our greatest ambassadors!

The impact of disruptions due to technological change has impacted firms widely. Thus it is important for managers and other stakeholders to recognize the characteristics and patterns of disruptions. Needless to mention that this may contribute undesirable outcomes if such patterns are not identified and understood. Counter measures to mitigate the risk of disruptions have a cost. Any form of disruption may impose the greatest risk to firm’s value. It is believed that with access to such knowledge, managers may be able to assess firms’ investment opportunities appropriately to mitigate the most material risks. IMI-K’s academic objectives are mostly in the light of many disruptions we often observe in the business. In fact, our focus on Asian values and business practices may indicate the guidelines to project us as a rising star in the Asian context.

For IMI Kolkata, an international research focus is inextricably linked with effective management training. It is our objective to support companies in a changing world by combining theoretical progress and their implications in business. Indeed, we believe that close co-operation with the business sector and our growing alumni network are the essential preconditions for understanding the needs of the corporate sector and contributing to the world of knowledge in business. The combination of theory and practice has always been a central element of our teaching and is anchored in an integrated manner in our academic programmes.

Research is a major priority at International Management Institute, Kolkata. IMI-Kolkata’s full-time faculty members has had been working on the creation of new knowledge. The aim has been to contribute new insights to the national and international academic communities on the one side and to provide innovative contents for teaching on the other side.
