Founded on the vision of Padmashree Dr. Karsanbhai K. Patel, the Institute of Management, Nirma University, earlier known as Nirma Institute of Management came into existence in 1996. Embodying the principles of entrepreneurship, excellence and professionalism, it imparts top-class business education and has produced new generation leaders and managers over the years.
The Institute of Management believes in serious academic pursuit and encourages original and innovative thinking with regard to national and internationally relevant ideas, policies through intellectually stimulating debates and discussions at all levels. The Institute has built its reputation with a dedicated goal of adding value to life and professional standards.
Institute of Management, a centre of learning where knowledge fuels the desire for distinction, has always pioneered in serving the changing needs of the industry . The campus infrastructure and amenities are comparable to any reputed university around the world. It hosts fully equipped classrooms where focused discussions, interactive study sessions, role plays, presentations, case studies and strategy implementation sessions are held as part of the future managers’ everyday work schedule.
To remain in the top league B-Schools, the Institute follows Outcome Based Education (OBE) by developing and nurturing a culture of excellence in teaching, training and research. Outcome-Based Education (OBE) which is practiced by leading B-schools is student – centric or learner – centric as compared to the traditional form of education which has always been more teacher-centric. It means, each student of the Institute is motivated to take the ownership of his or her learning and reflect on the learning process. Further, to ensure effective learning, the Institute uses a mix of pedagogy such as case study, simulation, discussions, presentations, role plays, project work, etc. in addition to the traditional lecture method to make teaching-learning process more experiential and participative.
Project-based learning is another salient feature of the teaching-learning process. Students work on a host of projects in different courses as well as across courses. Internship and project-based courses are part of different curricula. These courses are supervised and students are given sufficient support by faculty to apply their learning and learn from real life situations.
Each programme of the Institute has its programme learning outcomes that are derived after consultation with all stakeholders, benchmarking and intensive internal discussions. Then, course learning outcomes are developed on the basis of programme outcomes. The course content and assessment are based on the course learning outcomes. Each programme has mechanisms for the assurance of learning. For example, the rubrics are developed on the basis of course learning outcomes and various assessment mechanisms are developed to assess the level of learning among students. Finally, assurance of learning results in improvement in the teaching-learning process.
