Sandhya Bhatia

"Warm greetings and welcome to the Indian Institute of Management Udaipur!! As Dean, Programs of the institute, I am incredibly proud of our rich tradition of providing transformational business management education. Besides academic learning, our students organize and participate in various activities throughout the year. All student activities on campus are governed by the Council of Student Affairs, making our Institute a student-run campus.

IIMU marks the tenth anniversary of its establishment in 2021, a year for looking back at our successes and for looking forward to our Vision 2030. IIMU has always embraced change and forged ahead, be it the global MBA rankings or AACSB accreditation. Our MBA and Ph.D. programs prepare students for enhanced career opportunities and research, respectively. Our Institute has an excellent research ecosystem, outstanding faculty that continues to build on the strengths of our core values, and exceptional students who have a bright future.

The diversity and inclusiveness within the IIMU community have been at the heart of our collegial learning environment. IIMU is a place where students take ownership and responsibility for themselves and critical aspects of student affairs. Our collaborative program structures wherein faculty members share resources and work together in developing rich curriculum content and innovative instructional activities are unique. Our vibrant and valued partnerships with corporates and industry leaders bring together academia and industry.

IIMU's placement record is a testimony to the corporate world's confidence in our academic rigor and professional outlook. We will continue to focus on academic superiority, with improved placements being a byproduct of our Focus on academic excellence. The efforts of our competent faculty and staff, brilliant students, and exceptional alumni have guided us to the enviable position we are in today with respect to Global Rankings. Alumni are one of the fundamental building blocks of any institute and at IIMU we have a special relationship with our alumni. Their wholehearted support in multiple activities, including interactions with prospective students, mentoring of current students, and industry connect is a testimony to the relationship the institute created with them while they were students.

With a culture of academic excellence and an inclusive environment for growth, we have set a course for our Vision 2030. I, therefore, invite all the aspiring management and research students to experience a transformational journey of business education and research here at IIMU.
