Director General's Message

IMI New Delhi welcomes all of our external stakeholders to actively engage with us. We value the relationship we enjoy with our corporate partners, alumni, prospective students, working executives, the academic community, and international business schools. We would be delighted to work closely with all of you to create value in a mutually beneficial manner.

IMI New Delhi was set up in 1981 as India’s first corporate sponsored Business School in collaboration with IMI Geneva, which is now the world famous IMD Lausanne. We run a variety of post graduate programs including a doctoral program. In addition we run a large portfolio of short-term programs for working executives for competence building in a fast changing business environment. We were among the first few Business Schools in the country to get the globally reputed AMBA accreditation. We pride ourselves with the high quality of our faculty who have built a name for themselves in top quality teaching, high impact corporate training, and extremely relevant research. We are located in the heart of New Delhi close to large corporations, high growth start-ups, the government, and foreign embassies. This gives us a huge advantage resulting from this vibrant ecosystem we are an integral part of.

We actively engage with our corporate partners for providing custom training to their executives, and providing them with an extremely competent talent pipeline for recruiting our graduating students. Our students are highly sought after by the top companies in the country spanning all sectors.

IMI New Delhi graduated its first set of post graduate management students in 1988. Our alumni have done extremely well for themselves and have risen to apex positions in reputed and globally acclaimed organizations. Many of them have become highly successful entrepreneurs and created wealth not just for themselves but for others as well. We are extremely proud of our alumni, they are our brand ambassadors, and they are the ones who give credibility to our claims of being an institution of excellence.

We attract high quality students of the country in our post graduate management programs including our doctoral program. In addition, we also attract a large number of international students through our collaboration with the Ministry of External Affairs, Government of India, as partners in their ITEC program. Students come to us for the quality of our faculty and the recruitment and entrepreneurial opportunities after they graduate. Our academic rigor and intense industry engagement throughout the program, transform our students into excellent managers and future leaders making them highly sought after by big companies as well as start-ups.

In today’s world continuing education for enhancement of competencies is important for all corporate executives. With disruptions driven by fast paced technological advancements, business models are undergoing constant change for companies and this necessitates continuous learning by executives to stay relevant and add value. IMI New Delhi meets these needs through short-term training programs as well as long term part-time post graduate management programs. Our wonderful residential training facilities make it possible for executives from all over the country to come for our short-term training programs.

With a very strong academic culture of excellence among our own faculty we welcome collaborations with like minded members of the academic community worldwide. We would be delighted to embark on joint research projects with them and, if they are so inclined, be more than happy to have them come on board full-time as a member of our faculty team. We are always ready to add top quality faculty to our team, specially those with a strong research agenda.

In this globalized networked economy, building alliances with reputed international business schools is an imperative. IMI New Delhi has associated with business schools all over the world for a variety of engagements that include student exchange, faculty exchange, joint research, executive education study tours, etc. We are constantly seeking to associate with a larger number of reputed business schools across the world to further strengthen our international network.

On behalf of IMI New Delhi, I would like to extend a very warm invitation to all of our external stakeholders to engage with us. We look forward to associating with you for building a bright collective future.

Best Wishes,

Dr. Himadri Das
