Over the last 50 years, from 1963 when it was set up as a Centre of Excellence in International Trade and Business till 2012, IIFT has evolved as a top business school and research institution in the country. With robust infrastructure, strong faculty and dedication to excellence, IIFT has emerged as a National Institute for pedagogy and advocacy. It is a matter of pride for all aspirants to become a member of IIFT.
Over the 50 glorious years, IIFT has produced front ranking executives and business & industry leaders. The IIFT Alumni has spread across the globe from America to Europe and from Dubai to Singapore. The Alma Mater of IIFT with their achievements has made all of us proud.
It is widely believed that the real strength of any business management institution is reflected on its capacity to secure placement of students. IIFT over the years has achieved not only 100 per cent placement of its students, but also with companies of repute and significance. This is a great complement not only to IIFT but also to the intelligent and hard working student community who participated in our programs.
IIFT has a significant training component in which IIFT trains the future managers and leaders of the country. We not only train senior members of IAS, IPS and other Central Government Services but also the executives of PSUs including MMTC, STC, etc. besides highly technical members of Indian Air Force. Our training capabilities have been nationally recognized.
IIFT has been conferred the status of ‘Deemed University’ from 2002. IIFT has also diversified its courses starting from its flagship MBA in International Business which has become a Degree Program to MBA (IB) Part Time extending up to Ph.D. courses. Thus, IIFT today is ready to meet the challenges of human resource development in Government, Industry and Academia. Realizing IIFT’s potential, with the initiative of Government of India, Kolkata Campus has been started from July, 2006. We also have an International Centre in Tanzania (Dar-es-salaam) in collaboration with a local partner. With the help of Ministry of Commerce & Industry, Government of India, IIFT has established a WTO Centre which is the sole repository for WTO Secretariat.
