The Institute is located in Kozhikode district, (also known as Calicut), in the state of Kerala, which is very popular among tourists for its natural beauty. Calicut is a historic city where Vasco da Gama first established Indo-European business relationships, by discovering the sea route from Europe to India in 1498.

The institute's campus is located amidst the scenic setting of the Western Ghats, a mountain range that spans most of the Indian west coast.

Academic Programs

Post-Graduate Program in Management (PGP)

The Post-graduate Program in Management is the Institute's flagship educational program preparing young graduates for senior-level positions in industry. This 2-year program lays great emphasis on knowledge assimilation, as opposed to simply imparting it. Towards this it uses a wide variety of pedagogies: lectures, case studies, exercises, role-plays, simulation, video shows and more. The evaluation system is rigorous, comprising quizzes, assignments, mid-term and end-term examinations.

The program also stresses "learning to learn" through requirements of library-based self-study, group work, open-ended discussions and real-life projects. The students inculcate the spirit of 'Dream-Innovate-Achieve' and imbibe social concern as an integral part of the learning process.

Executive Management Education Program (eMEP)

The Executive Management Education Programme (eMEP) is the first of its kind to be offered in the Asia Pacific region; designed exclusively for working professionals. As an individual grows in an organisation, each higher step on his/her career ladder requires him/her to have qualifications and skills that commensurate to the role he/she is assigned. The programme attempts to fulfill the demands of the Indian Corporates for continued training and development of its executive workforce by offering a wide spectrum of courses across all functional areas of management.

Centre of Excellence(CEx)

IIMK incubates a Centre of Excellence(CEx), where youth from the marginalized sections of society, such as the SC/STs, are imparted training to make them intellectually and emotionally capable of joining reputed companies and educational institutions. The skills taught also make them capable of clearing entrance exams of various educational institutions. The CEx now functions as the Kerala Chapter of the Indian Council of Social Science Research (ICSSR).

The Centre of Excellence stands out as the only such initiative amongst institutes of higher learning in the country, underlining IIMK's commitment to the real upliftment of society.
