IIMA International Case Masters

In 1961, a group of visionaries led by Dr. Vikram Sarabhai realized the importance of efficient managers in bringing about rapid development in a newly independent nation. Active collaboration between industry and the Government resulted in the establishment of the Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad (IIMA). Over the past 5 decades, IIMA has gone on to become an internationally reputed institute and has produced some of the world’s most respected figures in academia and industry.

As part of its year long Golden Jubilee celebrations, IIMA is organizing a case writing contest – International Case Masters (ICM). The objective of this case competition is to promote study of changing global management practices. The institute has long been a centre of excellence for research on current management issues and the theme of "Change” reflects the same. The event invites entries from students and faculty members across the world to gauge the current trends of administration, governance and management.
