The first batch of Indian Institute of Management Amritsar has been inaugurated by the Minister for Higher Education & Languages of Punjab, Sardar Surjit Singh Rakhraon August 6, 2015. Prof. Kulbhushan Balooni, director, IIM Kozhikode and mentor director IIM Amritsar, Deans, Faculties and Senior Administrative staff of IIM Kozhikode was present during the inauguration.
The first batch of Post Graduate Programme (PGP) has about 65 students and the classes will start this week from a temporary campus at the Punjab Institute of Technology, Amritsar. The students have been selected on the basis of CAT 2014 scores. The cut off for General category candidates was 96.30 percentile
While addressing the first batch of students, parents and guests, Sardar Surjit Singh Rakhra, Minister of Higher Education and Languages, Government of Punjab, said, “I’m happy to announce that out of the 6 new IIMs announced in India recently, IIM Amritsar becomes the second to be inaugurated. Punjab can become one of the leading states in education through IIM Amritsar. We must institutionalize IIMs and produce the best of human resources.”
He appealed to the students, “Today the students of IITs and IIMs have excelled in various fields. IIMs play an important role to change the image of India. We also need to provide quality education to the poor, if we are to become a global superpower. I know most of you would be looking forward to a career in the banking or the financial sector, but you must also look at agriculture and rural management.”
Prof. Balooni said, “I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Ministry of Human Resource Development in initiating the process of starting IIM Amritsar in October last year. The Commitment of Government of Punjab in setting up IIM Amritsar is admirable that sends a signal to other States who are vying for academic institutions of repute.” He further added, “Students are the brick and mortar in building an institute. It is the students who largely shape the academic culture and dignity of the institutions.”
IIM Amritsar was given a final go ahead for the course this year upon the finalization of the permanent site for the IIM campus by a committee in late June. IIM Kozhikode, the mentor institute has put together the programme structure, systems and faculty.
The institute has been allotted 60 acres of near Manawala on Amritsar-Jalandhar GT Road for the permanent campus which is expected to be ready in the next 2-3 years.
IIM Amritsar is one of the 6 new IIMs that the Narendra Modi government proposed in the budget session 2014-15 earlier this year. It is Punjab’s first IIM and is being mentored by IIM Kozhikode.
