The Indian Institute of Management Calcutta (IIMC) was established as the first national institute for Post Graduate Studies and Research in Management by the Government of India in November 1961, in collaboration with Alfred P. Sloan School of Management (MIT), the Government of West Bengal, The Ford Foundation and Indian industry. During its initial years, several prominent faculty formed part of its nucleus, including Paul Samuelson, Jagdish Sheth, J. K. Sengupta among others.

Today, the institute serves as an autonomous body, continuously evolving to meet its goals in an ever-changing business environment. The vision of the Institute is to emerge as an International Centre of Excellence in all facets
of Management Education, rooted in Indian ethos and social values. Over the past few decades, IIM Calcutta has blossomed into one of Asia’s best Business Schools. Its strong ties to the business community make it an effective mechanism for the promotion of professional management practices in Indian organizations.

Over the years, IIMC has grown into a mature institution with global reputation, imparting
high quality management education. It has been playing a pioneering role in professionalizing Indian management through its postgraduate and doctoral level programmes, executive training programmes, research and consulting activities.

Today, IIM Calcutta attracts the best talent in India – a melting pot of academia, industry and research. The best and brightest young men and women pursue its academic programmes. The main thrust of the training is to imbibe a sense of strategic outlook to management problems in the students. The emphasis, therefore, is on management as an integrated process and requires the students to develop a global view of economic, technological, cultural and political environment of the business.

IIMC has a very strong alumni base, which makes it unique among the top management institutes of the world.
IIMC alumni are occupying leadership positions as corporate managers, academicians and successful entrepreneurs, worldwide. The alumni maintain a close relation with the Institute, helping each other in their growth.


As the world advances into the twenty first century, managers face the challenge of increasing competition due to the globalization of business and economy. Salient changes witnessed are the deregulation and liberalization of economies, changing industry structures, mergers, acquisitions & alliance formations to sustain growth, privatization, technological advances, changes in the consumer preferences and lifestyle, and emergence of new forms of organization & management practices.

In an era of continuous changes, managers need to equip themselves with new skills and resources needed to manage their enterprises in the midst of a turbulent environment. These skills will help the managers to assume greater responsibilities through career advancement based on knowledge, skills and competence.

The Executive Programme in Business Management –International is designed to provide managers and professionals with a broad overview of the key concepts, tools and techniques needed to successfully meet the challenges of today’s global business environment. Individual courses will give participants the knowledge needed to work cross-functionally within the organization and become more skilled in the basics of business management.


The programme will be offered through face-to-face interactions in a classroom environment. The pedagogy will
be highly interactive. Depending on the course, lectures will be enriched with case studies, corporate examples, live projects and general discussions. The programme will be spread over 1 year and will be offered through weekend classes in Dubai on Fridays and Saturdays on pre-notified dates. There will also be a module of the programme spanning 8 days at the IIM Calcutta campus. During these campus visits, participants will get a flavour of campus life at IIM Calcutta and sessions will be held on recent and topical subjects in business management.
