Director’s Message

Set up in 2015, IIM Nagpur is among the newest IIMs. From its earliest days, our institute has been benefiting tremendously from the ongoing mentorship it receives from IIM Ahmedabad. We are currently based in the verdant surroundings of VNIT Nagpur while our permanent campus is under development. We are lucky to call the city of Nagpur our home. We have the advantage of being located literally at India’s geographical centre, and also happen to be in one of the fastest developing cities in India. Our objective, as IIM Nagpur, is to be a contemporary and socially relevant management institution that is world-class in all respects. At this juncture of its journey, the phrase that best describes IIM Nagpur is ‘High-Growth, High-Intensity, ‘High-Performance’!

Within a short span of about three years since inception, IIM Nagpur has doubled the students’ intake in its incoming batch. Two batches of students have already graduated from the institute and their significant success in corporate jobs is helping IIM Nagpur rapidly build a reputation among leading Indian corporate recruiters as a preferred partner institute for managerial talent. While our students excel in academics, we also encourage them to passionately engage themselves in curricular, co-curricular, and extra-curricular activities to develop a well-rounded personality.

Among the innovative highlights of IIM Nagpur’s PGP curriculum is the ‘Field Immersion Module’ in which our students, under the guidance of faculty, not only get nuanced understanding of how organizations function, but also solve real-life problems for various establishments. Our students also get international exposure to countries such as Singapore and Japan through an International Immersion Module in the second year.

With its highly competitive policies and growing reputation as an institute with a collegial and performance-oriented culture, IIM Nagpur has some of the best faculty members who combine excellent educational credentials with industry experience. IIM Nagpur encourages its faculty members to carry out cutting edge management research, provide world-class education and mentorship to our PGP students that helps them to take on challenges in the industry, solve complex managerial problems for corporate clients by engaging in consulting assignments, and provide executive education of the highest quality.

The institute is fast progressing towards setting up its own residential campus spread across 135-acre in MIHAN area near the Nagpur International Airport. Meanwhile, everything needed for running a world-class management institute – a well-equipped library, single occupancy hostel accommodation, classrooms equipped with cutting edge audio-video technologies and learning aids etc. – is already in place and expanding in scale and scope almost every day.

We have recently set up InFED – IIM Nagpur Foundation for Entrepreneurship Development – A centre for promoting research, entrepreneurial learning, and startup incubation. InFED is already providing incubation to 10 women entrepreneurs and is in the process of integrating closely with the PGP programme to promote all-round entrepreneurial learning. We are passionate about contributing to the society by creating and disseminating knowledge in management field and also providing competent and ethical professional managers who would make the business world more effective and efficient.

Join us in our exciting journey into the Future!
