Indian Institute of Management Sambalpur


Welcome to Indian Institute of Management Sambalpur!

Nestled amidst the picturesque settings and juxtaposed with the very traditional Sambalpuri handloom ecosystem on one side and the modern mining and metal hub on the other, IIM Sambalpur offers exciting opportunities for our faculties, students, and stakeholders to engage in a meaningful way. Honestly, I don’t know of any business school in the country that is blessed to have such a privileged location as we do.

For business educationists, we couldn’t have asked for more interesting and exciting times. With Platforms, Pandemic, and Political Risk continuing to upend industry after industry, stakeholders’ expectations are fast shifting. As the country's premier business schools, we are redefining our value proposition and offerings to keep our degree future-proof.

As we embark in this exciting journey, we are reminded of Paul Polman, the former Unilever CEO and a sustainability champion, who writes that business schools “sit at the nexus of society, their research informs and inspires, and their teaching prepares new leaders for the challenges of the future”. With our top-notch faculty at front and center, ably supported by a group of dynamic officers and staff, we relentlessly strive to follow this dictum.

We encourage you to look further at our website and learn about the many opportunities afforded to you - the aspiring students, the working executives, the learning organizations, and the communities in general.

On behalf of IIM Sambalpur fraternity, I would welcome your input and ideas to make IIM Sambalpur a more vibrant and exciting place. Please do not hesitate to stop by for a discussion to learn more about how we could possibly connect and engage to have a mutually rewarding association.
