MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR GENERAL
India as a nation has managed green (agricultural) revolution, white (dairy product) revolution and industrial revolution since independence. Post economic liberalization, services sector grew and with the turn of this millennium, entrepreneurship started thriving. All these may not give a sustainable development without due attention to Indiaâs infrastructure. Today, all inclusive infrastructural growth is the mantra for our nation. Our dream to become world economic superpower can be met only when we focus on developing sustainable infrastructure in core, services and social sectors alike.
Our promoter, Mr. Gautam Adani, recognized this as a problem as well as an opportunity, and about a quarter century back started making significant contributions to the development of Indian infrastructure in a responsible way. As a result, the group has built world-class infrastructure like ports, airports, railways, power and more. On social infrastructure front, Adani Group has set up institutions of education and healthcare. One of them is Adani Institute of Infrastructure Management (AIIM). AIIM was established in 2009 to offer one-year full-time residential programme for executives. After graduating six batches, in the year 2015, we launched a 2-year full-time residential Post Graduate Diploma in Management (Infrastructure Management) (PGDM-IM) duly approved by AICTE in the state-of-the-art educational and residential complex.
AIIM works under the umbrella of Adani Institute for Education and Research (AIER), which is also known as Adani Institutes of Infrastructure (AII).

We aspire to become the world exemplar of higher education in infrastructure management with our eyes on strong research, case-based active learning, international collaborations and an active industry interface with solid backing of Adani group. A strong industry connect and support has been making it possible for us to integrate real life management and engineering problems with the student project work and course work. Industry experts regularly interact with students for creating awareness about infrastructure industry, and for building career aspirations nurtured by them on regular basis. Industry engagement with senior research-oriented faculty members of AIIM makes a perfect setting for students to lay foundation for a long-term career in management in general and infrastructure management in particular, based on understanding, inquisitiveness, entrepreneurship and value contribution.

The highly knowledgeable faculty, world class infrastructure & course structure and my hard work; helped me, to learn something new every day. Understanding the entire gamut of opportunities and challenges in the Infrastructure space is a specialization for sure; but it definitely does not limit a professional manager to one industry alone. I am proud to be an alumnus of the AIIM and eagerly look forward to the growth of my alma mater.

Interaction with industry offers students a chance to walk away with more than an education.
