Five decades ago, a dream, a vision turned into reality!
August 14, 1969: IMM came into existence! Marketing & Management Guru, Dr. Jagjit Singh, Fulbright scholar from USA, returned to India and set up IMM, as an Institution to spread the gospel of marketing and management.
IMM grew slowly and steadily, training managers and future business leaders over five decades. Our Niche Industry Programmes were the most sought after. In the early 90’s with the formation of AICTE, under the Ministry of Human Resources Development, Government of India, IMM was amongst the first few to get recognition for its 2 years full time Post Graduate Programme and has continued to do so till date, year after year.
As the 50th year celebrations began in 2019, we decided to revitalize IMM. Beginning year 2020, from an Industry backed Governing Body, to a fully revamped edifice, IMM will now be delivering the decades old AICTE approved 2 year PGDM program with a completely rejuvenated syllabus and robust study environment.
Recognizing five decades of service to the Corporate World, IMM has received a much deserved impetus with the entry of Shri Ramesh C Juneja, Chairman, Mankind Pharma Ltd. as the Institution’s National Chairman. With his success story to learn from, IMM will now grow leaps and bounds and further enrich its students and globally spread alumni.
IMM doors are now open for young management aspirants to join our industry enriched, revamped and AICTE approved PGDM Batch commencing June 2020.
I look forward to seeing you all as a part of our Ever-growing Successful Fraternity!
