Merger of two great institutions leads to a convergence of strengths, of initiative and resolve to enhance Quality Management Education Standards and Service Levels to obtain very superior learning outcomes.
The intellectual legacy of Dr. Jagjit Singh – a pioneering Fulbright Fellow- in Corporate Training Circles since decades is enshrined within the portals of the unique Institution he established with prescience and infused with creative vitality. Dr. Jagjit Singh devoted his entire life to the service of Student Community and Education and this mission he followed with untiring zeal and total dedication. He inspired a generation of students to develop their full potential. The Institute of Marketing and Management he established, possesses very superior physical infrastructure in a Central location amidst, IIFT, IMI, FORE and adjacent to IIT Delhi and Jawahar Lal Nehru University Campuses.
This dynamic hub will now gain additional traction with the coming together of IMM with FOSTIIMA Business School– an established Institution with its roots under the intellectual tutelage of IIM Ahmedabad.
The Founding Trustees, the Administrators, the Core Faculty, the Curriculum & the pedagogy all have their origins in the Indian Institute of Management at Ahmedabad. Friends of Seventy Three of IIM Ahmedabad is the full form of the acronym FOSTIIMA. Right since its inception in 2007, FOSTIIMA has single-mindedly concentrated on providing Quality Management Education to its students, bench marking IIM Ahmedabad standard of Management Education as its guiding inspiration. FOSTIIMA has constantly striven to mentor its students to achieve excellence like their counterparts at IIMA. Alumni of FOSTIIMA have been placed at high and attractive salaries in Banks, IT & Software Companies, in Reality, Retail, FMCG and Financial intermediaries in India, GCC, Africa and the West. IFBS’s future is bound to be bright, not only because of the joint legacy of two great Institutions IMM & FOSTIIMA but also due to renewed focused micro management of the Indian Economy which is going to require and demand large number of properly qualified Professional Mangers educated at Institutions like FOSTIIMA and other Institutions of National standing. IMM-FOSTIIMA Business School (IFBS) combines the ideal strengths to prepare young Professional Managers to meet the challenges of the FOURTH Industrial Revolution.
IFBS is aware that the future Managers shall have to learn, unlearn and relearn throughout their extremely long working life -changing career roles along with technology driven changes. IFBS Faculty is clear how its students are to be educated and groomed to face the future. IFBS students shall be exposed to all the multiplicity of learning resources in the heart of Delhi as they will benefit from the legacy of illustrious traditions of IMM and the continuous onsite mentoring of an all IIMA core Faculty. All members of IFBS Faculty had the best education India has to offer on a nationally competitive basis at IITâs and IIMâs and they will be teaching the students in the manner similar to what they themselves were educated in, and shall share their Corporate experience where all of them had hands-on practical ” hitting the ground running” experience and International exposure in top roles across MNCâs for over three decades. This will enable them to mentor entrepreneurs & StartUps to heighten the learning outcomes via the “Case Method”, honed to perfection by Harvard Business School and taught at IIM Ahmedabad since inception.
