Indian Institute of Management Calcutta, abbreviated as IIM Calcutta or IIMC, is a public business school located in Kolkata (Calcutta), West Bengal, India. It was the first Indian Institute of Management to be established. It is consistently ranked as one of the best business schools in India and the Asia-Pacific region. Established in 1961, IIM Calcutta is a fully autonomous institution and offers several postgraduate and doctoral programmes, in management, as well as a bouquet of executive education programmes. In addition to its main academic programmes, IIM-C is also engaged in research, consultancy, seminars, academic conferences and research publications.

IIM Calcutta’s programs are accredited by AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS: it is the only Indian b-school with these three global accreditations. It is the only Indian business school that is a member of the Global Alliance in Management Education (CEMS). IIM-C is especially renowned for its finance-related courses, and is widely considered to be one of the best business schools in the world for finance.

IIM Calcutta has set up a state-of-the-art Financial Research and Trading Lab (the Finance Lab) in November 2008. The Finance Lab at IIM Calcutta gives an opportunity to students and faculty members to test financial models with “live” information from the major markets of the world like India’s National Stock Exchange, Multi Commodity Exchange, National Commodity and Derivatives Exchange, Bombay Stock Exchange and Bloomberg. The lab is the only one of its kind in India, and has advanced industry-standard equipment and facilities including 78 trading terminals, trading simulators and Bloomberg Terminals.

The Lab resources can be used to develop, test trading algorithms, identify market abuse, executive education and in organising international and national conferences on finance. The laboratory gives students a hands-on experience in financial market data analysis and modelling, and also helps in advanced applied research in financial markets. Information on the Finance Lab is available at http://financelab.iimcal.ac.in/.

Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad (IIMA) has evolved from being India’s premier management institute to a notable international school of management in just four decades. It all started with Dr. Vikram Sarabhai and a few spirited industrialists realizing that agriculture, education, health, transportation, population control, energy and public administration were vital elements in a growing society, and that it was necessary to efficiently manage these industries. “The result was the creation of the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad in 1961 as an autonomous body with the active collaboration of the Government of India, Government of Gujarat and the industrial sectors.”

It was evident that to have a vision was not enough. Effective governance and quality education were seen as critical aspects. From the very start the founders introduced the concept of faculty governance: all members of the faculty play an important role in administering the diverse academic and non-academic activities of the Institute. The empowerment of the faculty has been the propelling force behind the high quality of learning experience at IIMA. The Institute had initial collaboration with Harvard Business School. This collaboration greatly influenced the Institute’s approach to education. Gradually, it emerged as a confluence of the best of Eastern and Western values.
