Institute of Management, CHRIST (Deemed to be University) (IMC) has been offering the much sought after two-year fulltime MBA programme since 1994 though the current offering is vastly different and improved from the then Bangalore University affiliated program that was offered at inception. Founded in the year 1969, CHRIST (Deemed to be University) was accredited and rated A+ by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) in the year 2005. Quick on heels, in 2006, we were recognized as an institution with potential for excellence by the UGC. IMC has been consistently ranked amongst the top 10 Private B-Schools in the country for its MBA programmes offered across specializations of Finance, Human Resources, Lean Operations and Systems, Marketing and Business Analytics. A value-based institution that has been at the forefront of offering value packed management education stemming from the ethos and traditions painstakingly built over the last 50 years. Yes, we are proud to be celebrating our Golden jubilee. Come join us in this journey which is expected to only be richer in years to come. As a fitting tribute in this Golden Jubilee year, India Today, 02 July 2018 issue have rated CHRIST as the No. 1 Private University in India.  

The curriculum delivered at IMC reflects healthy blended focus on fundamental management concepts and its application in this dynamic and disruptive global business environment. Besides strong academics, the two-year stint at IMC exposes students to a wide range of co-curricular and extra- curricular experiences that include Organization Structure Training (OST), Outbound Training (OBT), Book Reviews, Business Competitions, Summer Internships, Industry visits, Current Affairs & Weekly Presentations, and Dissertations to name a few. One of our unique offering that over the years have been transformative for students is the regular weekly mentoring sessions where mentor-Faculty groom students and specifically build their abilities to analyze current affairs & news and how to present and articulate skillfully.

The learning experience at IMC is increasingly driven through case study-based learning, simulations, live projects, corporate lectures, role plays, group activities and interactive theatre. Pedagogy is actively supported by great reading resources with brick and mortar libraries that stock up thousands of reference materials, subscription to a plethora of reputed research journals and business publications besides online databases that open up access to authentic data for research by Faculty and students. Over the years, we have assiduously worked towards increasing our offerings of choice-based electives of the types that either earn credits for the students undertaking them or simply of the type that do not add to the total credits but provide an opportunity to broad base student’s knowledge levels given the dynamic global business environment.


Complementing our pedagogic approach is our track record of more than a decade of active international exchange programs with renowned foreign management schools that provides joint academic program designed to provide insights into contemporary global business management practices. Collaborations with industry bodies like Indo American Chamber of Commerce, IGCC, Quality Circle Forum of India, International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA), Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), National Entrepreneurship Network (NEN) and National HRD Network (NHRDN) and MoUs with leading corporates help impart practical knowledge through value-adding training programs and workshops.

It is not only academics at IMC. The MBA programme also focuses on inculcation of discipline and personality development. Students actively participate in various team sporting events like basketball, football, cricket and table tennis to name a few, that has constantly helped them build team spirit and learn team building and execution skills.

At CHRIST, it is all about inclusivity. An extremely diverse cohort celebrates diversity each year through the Ethnic Day when students come ethnically dressed showcasing to fellow-students, culture of their states of origin. The campuses are a riot of colors creating a festive atmosphere throughout the university. Not far is our concern towards social issues that impact communities in which we operate. A dedicated course in the second year sees students applying fundamentals of management to help solve a real problem faced by not-for- profit entities involved in active social work. The year is witness to the set up of a dedicated Cell for Sustainable Development at IMC that will spearhead research into sustainability aspects of businesses, a new but great knowledge and skill for MBAs desirous of taking up leadership roles in businesses in the years to come.    

IMC functions out of two green campuses in the city of Bangalore. Main Campus is attached to the central administrative buildings of the University, south of Bangalore. The campus at Kengeri on Bangalore Mysore Highway nearer to Bangalore is located on a 75- acre plot amidst sylvan surroundings. Classrooms at both campuses are equipped with multimedia and are wifi enabled. Separate hostel facilities for boys and girls are available at both campuses though capacity at the Main campus is limited.

The focus in all that we do is to deepen and hone a student’s knowledge, skills and attitude to make him or her a well-rounded management professional. Culmination of the intense two-year MBA programme is acceptance by the industry as evidenced by large number of leading businesses who visit IMC year after year to recruit our passing out graduates.
