About Indian Institute of Management – Bangalore

In 1972, a committee headed by Ravi J. Matthai, founding director of IIM Ahmedabad and IRMA, noting the rising demand for graduates of the first two prestigious IIMs namely IIM Calcutta and IIM Ahmedabad, recommended the need to have two more IIMs. The Institute at Bangalore was set up to cater exclusively to the needs of public sector enterprises.[6] For the proposed institute, the Government of Karnataka offered 100 acres (40 ha) of land free of cost and a contribution of ₹3 million (US$40,000). T. A. Pai and N. S. Ramaswamy were appointed as chairman and Director respectively. The institute was inaugurated by Indira Gandhi, the then Prime Minister of India, on 28 October 1973. The institute was started in St. Joseph's College of Commerce, and some other buildings, which were rented on the Langford Road. The new institute came up at the Bannerghatta Road campus in South Bangalore in 1983.[7]

The two-year Post Graduate Programme commenced in July 1974 and the first convocation of the institute was held on 10 July 1976 with a total of 48 graduating students.[8] On August 27, 1998, the Post Graduate Programme in Software Enterprise Management was launched with an intake 58 students. The institute's start-up incubation centre, N S Raghavan Centre for Entrepreneurial Learning (NSRCEL) came into existence in March 2002. It was supported by grants from Nadathur Sarangapani Raghavan, an Indian industrialist, and one of the seven founders of Infosys Technologies.[citation needed]

On 7 June 2002, the Post Graduate Programme in Public Policy and Management was launched. The participants of the programme were members of the Indian Civil Services. On 3 April 2009, the one-year MBA Programme - the Executive Post Graduate Programme (EPGP), was launched for candidates with substantial industry exposure, modelled after international MBA programmes like INSEAD and IMD
