Chairman’s Message


Founded in 2015, IIM Nagpur prides itself in being one of the relatively newer of the IIMs. In an exciting world of limitless possibilities, we have chosen “Agility” as our main tool to shape the future of our students and our stakeholders. Being relatively new in the IIM ecosystem, we see an immense opportunity ahead of us to leverage the “IIM” brand name and apply modern age principles which affords us a much larger canvas to paint on. The focus of our institution is not on making manager but future ready “leaders” who rely on agility above all else to adapt to the ever changing business landscape. Whether it be change in geo-political scenarios, social challenges, financial headwinds, our endeavor is to mould leaders who accept these challenges head on and find out of the box solutions to thrive rather than survive in such conditions.

With the above vision in place, a lot of our curriculum and teaching methods focus on inculcating a culture of problem solving and alternative thinking. We challenge student to embrace accountability and utilize technology to find solutions to business problems which are the need of the hour in the present day economy.

In order to drive this culture of challenging business norms and make disruption a norm, we are working with Top tier faculty with deep industry connects to focus on live business issues. We believe that our faculty will guide our “future leaders” on their path towards becoming adaptable in this VUCA world.

I also believe that the most important piece of this puzzle is our Diverse Board with a strong business and academic network which can guide us through our ambitious journey.

I look forward to all your support and best wishes as we continue to make strides towards our vision and shape the future of “Future Leaders”

Thanks & Regards
