Message from the Director

BIM is a unique experiment in academia – industry collaboration. Bharat Ratna Shri C Subramaniam, Dr. V Krishnamurthy, former Chairman of BHEL and Prof. P S Manisundaram, the first Vice Chancellor of Bharathidasan University, envisioned BIM to be a Business School that would continue to explore new ways of educating the next generation of leaders who make a difference in business and societal environment. Through the past 30 years, BIM has lived up to their vision and has been truly a School of Excellence of Bharathidasan University.

The Chairman of the Board of Governors of BIM Padma Bhushan Shri S Ramadorai, the members of the Board, the faculty and staff are all committed to excel the high standards that have made BIM a leader in management education in the past few decades.

BIM boasts of an excellent placement record comparable to the best b-schools in the country. The competence, hard work, practical knowledge, humility and the right attitude displayed by our students at work attracts several corporations to recruit from us year after year.
