Functioning from the premises of National Institute of Technology-Tiruchi (NIT-T), the IIM-T has traversed a path that laid a strong foundation for academic and extra-curricular development under the chairmanship of former Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) Chairman Mr. M. Damodaran.
The director of the Institute Mr.Prafulla Agnihotri says, “The team of 12 faculty members has been drawn from other IIM's, IIT's and reputed institutions from USA and France. Also, a mullti-cultural environment has seamlessly been fused by the inaugural batch of 84 students chosen from various pars of the country based on their over 98.23% score in the CAT exam. Though the initial plan was to start off with a single batch of 60 students, the responses was overwhelming."
Since the academic journey started from June 15, 2011, students had ample avenues for intellectual pursuits. Insight, the guest lecture series has enabled the students to access the expertise of several distinguished hands in the field of management. Associate Professor Mr. Godwin Tennyson said, “By the end of the course, students would have met 20 personalities representing industry and academia."
IIM-Tiruchirapalli has plans to increase the number of its in-house programme offerings, apart from its fellowship Programme in Management set to begin this academic year.
