Director’s Message

Greetings from IIM Kashipur!

विद्या ददाति विनयं विनयाद्याति पात्रताम् ।
पात्रत्वाद्धनमाप्नोति धनाद्धर्मं ततः सुखम् ॥

(Knowledge gives humility, from humility, one attains character;
From character, one acquires wealth; from wealth good deeds
(righteousness) follow and then happiness)

Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Kashipur, the newest member of the brand IIM, aspires to imbibe these human values across its various stakeholders through creation and dissemination of knowledge in the field of management.

Established by the Government of India in 2011, the ‘newness’ factor of IIM Kashipur allows us to be constantly dynamic in our curriculum. We enjoy the flexibility to quickly respond to these rapidly changing global socio-economic conditions and can efficiently adapt the best practices of leading business schools. We consider this agility essential for management education today.

IIM Kashipur enjoys the privilege of selecting brightest brains of the country, in its flagship PGP program, with diverse backgrounds and determined to give a holistic view of problems through a participative learning process. IIM Kashipur is striving to impart efficient professional practices, essential in today’s globalised world, and high ethical standards into the students.

Located in the industrial hub of Uttarakhand, it provides us a unique opportunity to work close to the reality of India and our students are involved into multifaceted activities, including development work in local villages. Our pedagogy encourages practical workshops and real life data analysis as a part of course assignments. We offer a wide range of electives across different functional areas which allow a student to gain in-depth knowledge in their interested areas. IIM Kashipur inherits the rich legacy of academic rigour from IIM Lucknow, its mentor.

IIM Kashipur is in the process of recruiting faculty members from premier Indian institutes like IIMs and IITs as well as from reputed b-schools from aboard. IIM Kashipur augments its faculty strength by inviting senior faculty from premier Indian b-schools and regularly invites industry experts to bridge the gap between theory and practice.

In coming years IIM Kashipur is planning to offer courses for working executives and to also get involved in developmental work in the Kashipur region. IIM Kashipur believes in creating professionals who are socially responsible to environment, resources and their fellow beings.

We look forward to build long lasting and mutually beneficial relationship with you.
