Awards and achievements

The Indian Institute of Management Calcutta, the first institute in the IIM System, has entered the 50th year of its journey on November 14, 2010. It was the vision of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of the country that led to the creation of institutions like the IITs and IIMs. Incidentally, November 14 is also the birthday of Pandit Nehru. What started as a small institution in late 1961 has today blossomed into one of the leading management schools in South Asia and the Asia-Pacific region. IIM Calcutta, being the first institution in the IIM System, November 14, 2010 also marks the Golden Jubilee of the IIM System. It is a very important landmark in the modern history of our country. With a definite plan we are celebrating the Golden Jubilee of the Institute and IIM System over a period of two years during November 14, 2010-November 14, 2012.
