Janat Shah, Director, IIM Udaipur

Over more than half a century the Indian Institutes of Management have established an enviable record of quality and accomplishment. In less than ten years since our inception, IIM Udaipur has built on this proud legacy and at the same time taken advantage of the opportunity to innovate and bring a unique perspective to all our activities.

IIMU aspires to take its place among world-class management schools creating global knowledge and we have already achieved many significant milestones. IIMU gained AACSB accreditation in November 2018 and has recently been listed on the prestigious QS 2020 Masters in Management Rankings as well as the Financial Times (FT) Master in Management Ranking 2019.

IIMU is now the youngest B-school in the world on both these rankings.

Through the efforts of our accomplished faculty, our talented students and exceptional alumni, we have been able to make rapid progress on our path of continuous growth and innovation. These accreditations and recognitions make us confident that we can be among the best management institutions in the world by 2030.

IIMU is committed to nurturing leaders and entrepreneurs who will empower their organizations in the global economy. At the same time, the Institute remains deeply rooted in the region and the nation. An underlying priority is to instil in our students a sense of commitment as managers to have a socially responsible impact; to give them an understanding of how difficult and challenging this often can be; and to expand their knowledge and their intellectual horizons so they emerge transformed and prepared to have an impact on the world of business and society at large. We have consciously created a culture that values collegiality and accessibility, with open doors at all levels.

Based on our 300-acre campus, IIMU boasts of state of the art classrooms and technology infrastructure that is among the best at any B-school in India. The master plan for IIM Udaipur's campus has been awarded GRIHA's 5 Star LD rating which is the highest level of rating for large developments.

On the bedrock of our core values, we will continue to scale up over the next decade to build a management institute of international repute.
