Indian Institute of Management Calcutta, the first IIM to

Celebrate Golden Jubilee



IIM Calcutta Campus, Kolkata, November 08, 2010: The Indian Institute of Management Calcutta, the first institute in the IIM System, will enter the 50th year of its journey on November 14, 2010. It was the vision of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of the country that led to the creation of institutions like the IITs and IIMs. Incidentally, November 14 is also the birthday of Pandit Nehru. What started as a small institution in late 1961 has today blossomed into one of the leading management schools in South Asia and the Asia-Pacific region. IIM Calcutta, being the first institution in the IIM System, November 14, 2010 also marks the Golden Jubilee of the IIM System. It is a very important landmark in the modern history of our country. We plan to celebrate the Golden Jubilee of the Institute and IIM System over a period of two years during November 14, 2010-November 14, 2012.


The celebration of the Golden Jubilee at IIMC will begin with a 3 day event during November 14-16, 2010. There will be a two-day convention on Management Education in India during November 14 to 15 where directors from all the IIMs and renowned management schools in India and the world, some noted academicians and industry leaders, IIMC professors and alumni would deliberate on significant issues and challenges facing the management schools in India and the way forward. On the third day the faculty, staff, alumni and students of IIMC will reminisce about the Institute in a session on“[email protected]: The Past, Present and Future”. It will be followed by planting of saplings by different stakeholders. The three-day event will end by honouring retired faculty members, past directors, current faculty and staff who have served the Institute for a long period of time and contributed significantly to build IIMC into an iconic institution in management education. 


Smt. Purandeshwari, Hon'ble Minister of State, Human Resource Development, Government of India has kindly agreed to be the Chief Guest at the Inaugural function on 14th November, 2010. His Excellency M.K. Narayanan, Hon'ble Governor of West Bengal has kindly agreed to be the Chief Guest for the concluding session of the two day convention on 15th November, 2010. Legendary Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia will grace the occasion with his Flute Recital in the evening of November 14, 2010.


Several international conferences, workshops and seminars are being organized as part of the Golden Jubilee Celebration – International Marketing Conference during December 27-29, 2010, International Finance Conference during January 9-12, 2011, IIMC-Strategic Management Society Paper Development Workshop during February 26-28, 2011; and several others.
