Indian Institute of Management Calcutta:

The Indian Institute of Management Indore was set up in 1998 and is the youngest of the IIMs. The campus at 193 acre (781,000 m²) is the largest among all the IIMs.

"A strong theoretical foundation is the basis of good corporate practice" - this is the underlying theme of the Post Graduate Programme (PGP). Spanning two years the programme is benchmarked against the best business schools in the world. Experiential learning, IT orientation, and Social Sensitivity are the unique features of the programme.

IIM Indore has gradually been increasing the annual intake of students for its flagship two year PGP (MBA) program from around 50 in 1998 to 180 in 2006. The intake is expected to increase to 240 students from the academic year 2007 onwards.

The International Student Exchange program ensures that the students are exposed to the latest trends in management across the business schools of the world. The institute had its first student exchange of six students with Ecole de Management de Lyon (EM Lyon) a premier business school based in Lyon, France in 2005. The exchange program has advanced rapidly and the institute currently (as of 2006) has exchange programs with two business schools in France, one in China and one in New Zealand with several others on the anvil. As per reports talks are on with several US based B schools (including a US top 3 B-school) for faculty and student exchange programmes

The activities of the students are co-coordinated by the Students Welfare Activities Council (SWAC), an elected body of student representatives. Sub-committees look after various aspects such as academics, sports, infrastructure, etc.
