3. IIM Calcutta
Founder: Director is Uttam Kumar Sarkar.
The Indian Institute of Management Calcutta (IIM-C) is an Indian public business school located in Joka, Kolkata, West Bengal. It was the first Indian Institute of Management to be established, and it was designated as an Institute of National Importance by the Government of India in 2017. Following India’s independence in 1947, the Planning Commission was tasked with overseeing and directing the country’s development. In the 1950s, India proliferated, and by the late 1950s, the Commission was having difficulty finding suitable managers for the large number of public-sector enterprises being established in India as part of its industrial policy. To address this issue, the Planning Commission invited Professor George Robbins of the University of California to assist in the establishment of an all-India level institute of management studies in 1959. The Indian government decided to establish two elite management institutes named Indian Institutes of Management in response to his recommendations.
IIM Calcutta has a global network of partner B-schools with which it runs student exchange programs. The student exchange program (STEP) for the postgraduate program is usually held in the fifth term, between August and September, and December. Every year during this period, more than a hundred students from IIM Calcutta leave for foreign institutes, and an equal number of students from various B-schools arrive to spend the term at IIM Calcutta. Other academic programs at IIM-C provide exchange opportunities as well.
