Title: Ankit Jain: IIM Calcutta (An Overview)

IIM Calcutta
  • After India became independent in 1947,
    the Planning Commission was entrusted to oversee
    and direct the development of the nation. India
    grew rapidly in the 1950s, and in the late 1950s
    the Commission started facing difficulties in
    finding suitable managers for the large number
    of public sector enterprises that were being
    established in India as a part of its industrial
    policy. To solve this problem, the Planning
    Commission in 1959 invited Professor George
    Robbins of the University of California to help
    in setting up an all India level institute of
    management studies. Based on his recommendations,
    the Indian government decided to set up two elite
    management institutes, named Indian Institutes of
  • Indian Institute of Management Calcutta was the
    first of these IIMs, and was established on 13
    November 1961 in collaboration with the MIT Sloan
    School of Management, the government of West
    Bengal, the Ford Foundation and the Indian
    industry. Its first Director was K. T. Chandy,
    the former Chairman of Hindustan Unilever
    Limited. During the initial years of IIM
    Calcutta, several renowned academics and
