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.

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.

Thoughts from a Former Exchange Student
"I decided to study abroad as a means of diversifying my professional skills, not to mention my career opportunities. Studying abroad is one of the best ways to broaden one's awareness of the complex issues surrounding this new international/global era in which we live. It helped me perfect my language skills and gain knowledge of the political, social, and economic issues the world faces today. Furthermore, I believe the personal experiences I gained will help me to be a better leader to welcome challenges, and to challenge the status quo."
