Program Description:
India Institute of Management, Bangalore

In 1973, the India Institute of Management in Bangalore (IIMB) was created to cater to the growing needs of management graduates in the public sector. IIMB has been ranked as the number one business school in India for four years in a row by Eduniversal Rankings. And, according to QS Global 200 Business Schools Report, students from IIMB are the world’s most academically distinguished with an average graduate management admission score of 780, higher than those from Stanford and Harvard. The institute prides itself in excellence in research, scholarship, global character, values, and diversity, and stands true to its motto “May our study be vigorous and effective.”

IIMB awards diplomas to their students, as opposed to degrees. Their various educational programs in public policy management, aerospace and aviation management, and other sectors of business cater to a wide variety of government organizations, public and private sectors, and non-governmental organizations.  IIMB has over 150 faculty members and over 1,000 students in attendance.


The India Institute of Management in Bangalore is located in India’s southern city of  Bangalore. Known for its all-stone architecture and landscaped gardens, the institute is surrounded by lush, verdant woods on all sides and provides a tranquil environment to conduct one’s studies. Due to its Bangalore location, IIMB is in close proximity to some of the leading corporate houses in India.

Bangalore is said to have one of the world’s most benevolent climates, and is the hub of India’s booming IT industry. Though urbanization is prevalent in Bangalore, the central district of the city retains some of its heritage through Victorian-era architecture, lovely parks, and culture-rich foods. The Bengaluru Palace, the once private residence of the Wodeyars, preserves a portion of the royal splendor that speckled all of India long ago, and the bustling Krishnarajendra market give visitors an experience they have never had before.  Trains and buses provide easy transportation throughout Bangalore and even to other states of India.

IIMB aspires to emerge as a knowledge hub in India and emerging markets. It aims to do so by bringing the world of knowledge, culture and experience to its campus and by exposing the IIMB fraternity to global knowledge, experiences and insights. Students from foreign universities who participate in the exchange program to IIMB take elective courses in the various departments at IIMB including post graduate programs in public policy and management and enterprise management. All courses taken abroad must be approved by the student’s home university before the student may register for classes at IIMB. All courses at IIMB are taught in English and range from financial and marketing management, corporate strategy, human resource management, operations management, economics and entrepreneurship. A list of courses offered to exchange students at IIMB is can be found on the IIMB Student Exchange Courses webpage. 


The spacious and well-maintained hostel blocks at IIMB provide single-room accommodation to all students. 24-hour internet connectivity, uninterrupted power supply, and laundry
and ironing services are provided in these hostel blocks.  
IIMB has a number of sports facilities for sports such as tsepak, soccer, cricket, tennis, basketball, volleyball, throw ball, and badminton among others. The institute holds a strong belief in developing the student’s personality as well as their academics, and offers various recreational activities for the students outside of their studies. 


One of the benefits of participating in a reciprocal exchange is their affordability. Overall costs are comparable to studying in College Station with the main difference in costs coming from travel related expenses and the exchange rate. Please keep in mind that because you are enrolled at A&M, your regular tuition and fees will be paid at A&M just as if you were taking classes on campus. Additionally, students will be provided with the necessary information for them to make arrangements for all other expenses.

As soon as you decide to participate in a study abroad program, you will want to look into the funding available.

Thoughts from a Former Exchange Student

“I would highly recommend studying abroad to anyone who has the opportunity to go. It has changed my life in so many different ways. I am much more independent, traveled, and cultured as a result of the fantastic experience. I wouldn’t trade it for anything.”

 Philip ’14 Finance, Spring 2013 Mays Reciprocal Exchange in Spain
