3As of the All-inclusive Development @IMI Kolkata

International Management Institute, Kolkata is a distinguished member of the IMI family and happens to be India’s first corporate sponsored B-school in India. After IMI Delhi was established in 1981, the IMI Kolkata chapter began in 2010. A reasonably young institute, IMI Kolkata has done well for itself in the last decade in terms of rankings and accreditations.

It offers a two-year full-time AICTE approved Post Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM) course, which is equivalent to MBA as per Association of Indian Universities (AIU) and accredited by National Board of Accreditation (NBA). As per the latest NIRF 2019 rankings, IMI Kolkata has ranked as the 45th best B-school in India. Apart from laying a strong academic foundation for its students with an industry-oriented curriculum, IMI Kolkata provides holistic development for its students.

Academics

  • IMI Kolkata has a strict screening process while selecting students for the PGDM programme. The admission criteria are merit-based and academic scores (Class X, XII, Graduation, CAT 2019, XAT 2020 and GMAT 2016-2002) are given due weightage.

  • The students are then tested on written and communication skills via a writing ability test and a personal interview. The WAT tests the students on their articulation and technical competency. The PI tests the students on their inclination towards management education.

  • The curriculum is designed such that it bridges the industry-academia gap.

All the above help develop technically sound management professionals who can give back to society and the economy of the country.

Acumen

IMI Kolkata believes that in addition to providing comprehensive education, developing a business and management acumen is hugely critical. It also provides a podium for the Faculty to meet and explore new opportunities for the institution, students and their professional growth.

It is organized by IMI Kolkata (18th April 2019) and will be a combination of TEDTalk videos and live speakers where the students can hear and interact with successful professionals. This year the four eminent speakers are Mr. Prithviraj Dasgupta, an entrepreneur, Ms. Damayanti Mukherjee, an educationist, Dr. Harshad Khadilkar, a scientist with TCS and Mr. Shoummo Kanti Acharya, a business leader.
