d it, lawns and leafy trees keep the temperature on the campus several degrees lower. In winter, tens of thousands of migratory birds descend on the campus. Wide corridors and open spaces with classrooms, library, and faculty offices within easy reach for everyone, encourage interaction and debate – the heart of management education. The design of the campus translates that educational philosophy into buildings that are visually appealing and inspiring. Students of architecture come from far and wide to take a close look at these buildings and to discover how design of buildings captures a philosophy.
There are about 97 regular, full-time faculty members at IIMA. They come from different regions of the country. They belong to different religions and speak different mother tongues. All of them (except 2 per cent) have doctoral degrees. Most of them have had some work experience or part of their graduate education abroad. Some combine corporate experience with teaching and academic research. Faculty members enjoy tremendous freedom in choosing what to teach, how to teach, and what research interests to pursue. They regulate themselves. They subject themselves to evaluation both by peers and by students. The high expectations from peers and students keep them on their toes. The Institute has over 60 research and academic associates assisting the faculty with research and teaching at any given time. Bright young PhDs and post-graduates interested in academics go through a rigorous selection process before they are allowed to work as research associates or academic associates. In the two or three years that they typically spend at the Institute, they are exposed to excellence in both research and teaching. They learn so much that many business schools hire them as faculty.
