In 2008, IIMA became the first management school in the country to be awarded European Quality Improvement System (EQUIS) accreditation by the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD).

At IIMA, innovation lies at the base of every programme and the aim is to cater the best, to the best, from the best.

The IIMA’s Senior Management Programme equips bright individuals with General Management perspectives and thinking skills. It delivers a high value through a blend of intensive and on Campus learning and immersive High-definition Visual Communication Virtual Classroom interactions. The programme covers functional areas of management, its source disciplines and builds on the experience of the participants, helping them understand the underlying concepts, paradigms and theories of management. The programme builds on the experience of participants who could not find time, due to their personal and career commitments early on, to undergo a top-notch programme in management, but who have been learning and adding to their skills and competencies while working. It helps the participants understand how the various management functions contribute to effective leadership, decision making, strategy, and organization of the business. Taking high quality experience as given, the programme creates an environment in which participants learn from each other as well.
