Prof. Pratap C Biswal, Director, IMIBH

Established in 2011 by RP-Sanjeev Goenka Group under the aegis of IMI Delhi, IMI Bhubaneswar stands on a 16-acre lush green campus. In keeping with its vision, IMIB has distinguished itself by its excellent academic programs, executive education, research across management and related disciplines, and support for entrepreneurs since its inception. Over 500 alumni and 1000+ executives are making a significant contribution to the social and economic growth of India.

The IMI Bhubaneswar is dedicated to cultivating socially conscious and ethically grounded managers who possess contemporary management acumen. To address the evolving business challenges, IMI Bhubaneswar adopts an interdisciplinary approach and incorporates the contemporary analytics domain into its program.

Despite being a young institute, IMI Bhubaneswar has been innovative from the beginning. Our two-year Post Graduate Diploma in Management Program (PGDM) offered business analytics well before other contemporary B-schools. The Fellow Programme in Management (FPM), approved by AICTE, attracts research talent equally from fresh scholars and senior industry practitioners. A recent addition is a two-year Post Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM-Online) approved by AICTE. The IMI Incubation Foundation is equipped to help qualified individuals start their business ventures.

While our faculty are outstanding scholars in their respective disciplines with publications in leading academic journals, they are also inspiring teachers, impactful consultants, award-winning case writers, and policy advisers.

Reflecting these strengths, IMI Bhubaneswar has achieved numerous milestones. IMI Bhubaneswar has attained coveted accreditation from the Association of MBAs (AMBA), the National Board of Accreditation (NBA), the Association of Universities (AIU) equivalence for the PGDM Programme, and Graded Autonomy status from the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE). IMI Bhubaneswar has consistently performed well in national rankings (NIRF), showing its commitment to high-quality teaching, training, research, and consultancy.

IMI Bhubaneswar upholds values like respect for the community, passion for excellence, high ethical standards, and a research-driven approach. IMI Bhubaneswar has an ambitious vision that is poised to create a significant impact in the industry and local community and provide impetus to the start-up ecosystem.

I take this opportunity to extend a personal invitation to all the stakeholders to visit the IMI Bhubaneswar campus and experience the shaping of responsible leaders
