IIM Udaipur, a second-generation IIM, one of the fastest-growing management schools in the country. It was set up by the Indian Government in 2011. Taking the legacy of older IIMs forward, IIMU aspires to set new benchmarks in the field of management education by combining excellence in both teaching and research. At IIM Udaipur, we are committed to becoming a globally recognized management school by 2030 and we are inevitably on our way.
With an accomplished faculty, a flourishing research ecosystem and success in attracting the best minds of the country, IIMU is able to champion our core values of excellence and integrity. At IIMU, we challenge our students 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.
Additionally, the Institute strives to make a real difference to the region, forging strong relationships with local NGOs and government and working closely with industry on live projects, internships, guest lectures, faculty research and many events throughout the academic year.
Udaipur, the capital of the former princely state of Mewar, evokes the same sense of heritage, beauty and grandeur as such timeless destinations as Venice and Prague. This cradle of culture and history is the perfect backdrop for IIM Udaipur.
If ever there was a place that lent itself as an environment for the kind of management education IIMU aspires to deliver it is Udaipur and Rajasthan. With this heritage, culture and location IIM Udaipur is truly where history meets the future.
The following characteristics underlie all our programs and activities.
IIMU provides students with the freedom and institutional support they need to explore their entrepreneurial ambitions. This is reflected in all aspects of our programs: in-depth orientation to entrepreneurship on day one; an inspiring range of elective courses; intensive mentoring during the program and beyond; flexible placement options for students choosing to pursue an entrepreneurial venture; assistance in procuring seed funding and equity capital.
If being an entrepreneur excites you, there is no better place to be in India.
At IIM Udaipur, learning has no boundaries. Our initiatives to instill a global perspective are an integral part of all our activities: the International Business in Practice elective in the two year MBA enables students to work on short-duration consulting assignments at international locations and the one year GSCM program gives students the option of spending an entire five-month semester at Purdue University mastering advanced global SCM. Other opportunities include international student exchange programs and overseas summer internships.
The world over, MBA programs are realizing that learning is best achieved by doing. At IIMU, this indispensable idea translates to Immersion – in other words, getting students to dive into real-life environments and explore learning for themselves:
Our priority is to ensure that students understand how theory meets practice across all functional areas. We create many opportunities for students to rub shoulders and match wits with industry leaders throughout the year. These interactions are not limited to internships, live projects and case discussions. The students organize and moderate summits and panel discussions that bring together experts, thinkers and practitioners from India and abroad. Students also benefit from intensive mentoring by committed and enthusiastic industry professionals.
