The Indian Institutes of Management have been the archetype of management schooling in India since their foundation after our independence in 1947. Established in 2015, IIM Bodh Gaya is setup under the mentorship of IIM Calcutta, the oldest IIM in the country. Right from the start IIM Bodh Gaya has meticulously followed its mentor's footstep. Building on the grand heritage of the IIM brand, IIM Bodh Gaya aspires to promote a culture which can create socially responsible managers and emotionally mature leaders.
In a short span of a year, IIM Bodh Gaya has already strengthened its position in the league of premiere B-schools. IIM Bodh Gaya follows the same pedagogy as of IIM Calcutta. In effect students in IIM Bodh Gaya follow the PGP curriculum of IIM Calcutta and are taught by the faculty members of IIMC. They partake the academic rigor for which IIMC is known for offering Post Graduate Programme (PGP) in Management, and providing the standard specializations such as Finance, Marketing and HR. The overall quality as well as design of the curriculum at IIM Bodh Gaya is also overseen by IIM Calcutta.
The curriculum involves intensive case studies, engrossing field work, role plays and continuous corporate interaction workshops. The program has been conceived to provide world-class management education to meet the requirements of enterprises across sectors by producing highly skilled management professionals. Till its 118 acre permanent campus comes up, IIM Bodh Gaya will operate temporarily from the Institute of Distance Education building of the Magadh University. With a state-of- the-art, newly constructed boys and girls hostels, and knowledge database, IIM Bodh Gaya promises to be the future of business education preparing young graduates for senior-level positions in industry.
