IIM Bangalore sets up Case Recording Lab to advance digital management education
Indian Institute of Management Bangalore Chairperson, Dr. Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw along with the institute Director Prof. G. Raghuram inaugurated a Case Recording Lab on July 19, 2017, in the campus as a part of IIM Bangalore’s innovative efforts towards digital learning. Set up with funding support from Mitsubishi Corporation India Limited and Metal One Corporation India Limited, the laboratory is equipped to record and encapsulate live case discussions. The aim of the Case Recording Lab is to create a digital repository of teaching and learning aids that would capture the essence of the case method of teaching in the IIM Bangalore classroom.
Through the IIMBx MOOCs Programme, IIM Bangalore has offered Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) to more than five lakh global learners in various core and specialised management subjects. Videos are the backbone for delivering pedagogically designed digital content to learners and with this lab, the B-School has strengthened its technical capability to produce quality MOOCs.
Inaugurating the Case Recording Lab, Dr. Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw said, “The country needs to leverage MOOCs on a massive scale to enable millions of Indian youth access high-quality education. IIMB has taken great strides in the area of making management education accessible through digital platforms. This lab is another instance of the institute’s continued focus on technology innovation to make education effective and far-reaching.”
Dr. Mazumdar-Shaw also shared that during her recent visit to MIT, she learnt that IIM Bangalore is one of the most important partners of the edX platform and the initiatives are seen as ‘problem solvers’ on the platform. She lauded the ‘incredible reach’ of MOOCs, calling it the true democratisation of education.
In his opening remarks, MCI Chairman and Managing Director Eisuke Shiozaki, said, “It is a great pleasure to be associated with IIM Bangalore and with the project which will allow education to reach to millions of students across the globe.” Describing the IIMBx Case Recording Lab as “another addition to the global IOT movement”, he said he hoped that the lab would go a long way in supporting future managers and decision-makers of India.
Professor G. Raghuram, Director, IIMB, emphasised IIMB’s strong focus on reinforcing Indo-Japan ties in the domain of management education and said, “IIMB is thankful to Mitsubishi and Metal One for their support in our technological endeavor. We hope that the Case Recording Lab is one of many initiatives that the institute accomplishes in collaboration with our Japanese partners.”
Prof. Raghuram announced that IIM Bangalore would soon be setting up a Japan Centre. “The Japan Centre @ IIMB aims to become a knowledge centre of Japanese business history, business strategies and technology innovations,” he added.
As a location, Prof. Raghuram said Bangalore boasts the highest number of Japanese companies and professionals in India. “Further, Bangalore has been ranked among the world’s best innovation ecosystems and IIM Bangalore is ideally positioned to start a Japan Centre.”
IIM Bangalore’s Deans of Faculty, Administration and Academic Programmes – Prof. Gopal Naik, Prof. G Shainesh and Prof. Sourav Mukherji, along with senior faculty members Prof. R Ravi Kumar and Prof. MS Narasimhan, were present at the inauguration.

Questions related to IIM Bangalore
What should I fill in "year of passing" in 12th field in CAT form 2020 if I passed 12th in 2016 and appeared for Improvement in all subjects in 2017 ? Also I have improved my percentage so which marks should I enter? Please Help. Remember I passed all my subjects in 2016.
It is a tricky situation but the answer is simple. You passed the senior secondary exam in the year of 2016 so you should mention 2016 as the year of passing. You are saying that you secured more percentage in improvement, then you can mention the improved grades in the form. But at the time of interviews, you will have to carry both the marksheets . Only The one with the more percentage , shall be considered valid. Which is the improved one in your case.
And lastly, dont worry . This does not affect the admission criteria .As long as you have cracked the entrance exam and proved your caliber for the respective exam, you are pretty much good to go.
i got 61.69%in 12th HSC,93.6% in 10th ,8.7 CGPA in BE,can i apply for cat and if got good percentile..can i get a call from iimb or iimc?
Usually MBA aspirant thinks that good CAT score is enough to get a call from IIM, but the reality is call from IIM does not only depend upon the CAT score but also depends upon the overall academic performance and WAT/GD rounds. Some IIM's give preference to work experience or UG streams so its totally upon them but only CAT score is not enough to get a call from them.
I hope this will help you.
63/64/62 percentage in 10th/12th/graduation. category sc currently working as bank clerk in sbi total work experience to date is 26 months. what cat score is needed to get a call from IIM Ahmedabad, IIM Bangalore and Calcutta.
Sorry for that but your academics are pretty low. But belonging to a SC category might fetch you a chance to get a call from IIM A, B, C. All IIMs have different parameters and the weightage of these parameters also differs from college to college.
I will advise you to personally visit the official website of these college and look for the last year cut offs as well as their criteria of admission. Scoring above 97% percentile will be a pretty decent score and can help you to some extent in getting a call from either of the college.
All the very best.

Do people who have less than 90 percent in 12th get admitted in IIM Bangalore? If anyone could please guide. Regards, Snehansh
Yes they have! What matters the most is your overall profile not one or two features of it. There is no bar that people with less than 90% marks can not be admitted. It only depends on how much you are able to impress them with your overall profile. Try to highlight your work experience if any. It will benefit immensely. Interviewers need to see that seal within you to excel.
