International Institute of Management Sciences - Kolkata
India is the name of the mesmerizing sub continent which never fails to capture the enigma of the tourists. India, with its mind-boggling diversity – from snow covered mountains to sun-kissed beaches, stuffy old bazaars to opulent heritage hotels, tranquil villages to ever-brimming urban cities and consecrated temples to rocking nightlife, has been rightly offered the sobriquet as "The Planet’s Most Multidimensional Country".
The largest metropolis in India, Kolkata is a vibrant city on the move. Also known as the ‘City of Joy’, it is home to more than 10 million people. Enjoying a rich cultural heritage, it is often referred to as the cultural and educational hub of India. The city is also well connected, fast and has easy access to buses, trams, metro railways, ferries, taxis, auto and cycle rickshaws which ply within the city.
International Institute of Management Sciences (IIMS), a non-profit management institution situated in Kolkata, is a pioneer institution in India to offer Management Education in the private sector since 1979. The Institute is the first in the country to receive All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), Govt. of India, approval in 1991 for offering PGDBA (equivalent to MBA) in Distance Learning (DL) mode, marking the recognition of its competency in fulfilling the commitment of excellence and outreach.
IIMS commenced 2-year Full-time MBA Programme in 2004 with the approval of AICTE, Govt. of India and is affiliated to Maulana Abul Kalam Azad University (formerly known as West Bengal University of Technology), a state university, at its new dedicated campus providing all modern facilities required for world class education. The Institute is also affiliated to Vidyasagar University (a state university) for conducting MBA course through Distance Learning Mode.
As part of our constant endeavour to provide education of highest standards, in the year 2011 IIMS made a novel and unique advancement through an international venture with Auckland Institute of Studies (AIS), Auckland - one of the prestigious tertiary institutes in New Zealand, for conducting overseas MBA and undergraduate programmes through cross-credit pathway. The programme is mainly designed to cater to the ever growing demand for overseas education among the talented Indian students. It aims at reducing the cost of quality education substantially while at the same time ensuring smooth transition to overseas campus under the institute's arrangements.
