Introduction: IMI Kolkata PGDM 

IMI Kolkata PGDM established in 1981. International Management Institute (IMI) was the first Business School in India that was paid for by a business. The RP-Sanjiv Goenka Group started the IMI Kolkata campus in 2010 to give bright young minds access to world-class management-pedagogy. Since then, IMI Kolkata has grown and changed so much that it has become one of the top five percent of business schools in India. IMI-Kolkata has very strong industry links because it is in a good spot in the middle of Kolkata. The institute’s success is built on its world-class infrastructure, highly experienced faculty members, an approach to learning based on experience, and a curriculum that is geared toward the business world. The number of business schools and universities in North America, Europe, and Asia that are linked to the institute has grown over the years.

The institute not only has an academic and professional atmosphere, but it also has a full campus life that is important for the students’ overall growth. So, IMI Kolkata has helped shape the lives of students and given bright young minds the perfect start to their careers in the business world.
