Director’s Message

It is my great pleasure to welcome and invite you to the Kanpur Institute of Management Studies, acclaimed as the finest stand alone management institute in and around Kanpur for pursuing higher education in the management discipline.

The K-IMS, set up in the year 2009, has very quickly acquired wings of fame and a robust reputation of an innovative and dynamic student centered institution which has truly lived up to its promise of “we place more, ‘coz we train more”. We strongly believe that a student, regardless of his intellectual accomplishments, can always be taught and trained to lead, succeed and supercede. There is always greater effort in taking a fifty percentile student to seventy or eighty, making him communicate fluently where one could barely mumble in syllables, imbibing in him managerial traits and inculcating positive values and attitude. But we do it gleefully and derive pride in it. Of course, our smiling, well placed alumni are our best reward.

There is no doubt that management education has of late lost some attraction due to country’s growth rate plummeting from 9.5 in past to projected around 6 percent during 2012-13 and creation of excess supply of management seats in last 3-4 years sometimes unaccompanied with requisite human and physical capital. Besides reduction in the demand for managers, average compensation has also been driven down significantly leading to less perceived value of MBA and PGDM courses. I believe that this is only a temporary situation what with the leading macro indicators suggesting a recovery round the corner.

Cyclical swings notwithstanding, there will always be high employment potential of the management graduates who have been adequately trained. Choice of a proper management institute is therefore critical for value adding education and corporate orientation. The K-IMS offers everything to transform you into a successful, capable manager.

I believe that this is only a temporary situation what with the leading macro indicators suggesting a recovery round the corner.

The Institute being located in the midst of large industrial clusters at Kanpur, Unnao and Banthar facilitates very strong linkages with industry for Hands-on training, Live Problem solving, Summer Training and Placement.

I assure you that the K-IMS will surely meet your expectations of an ideal seat of learning and skill provider. And help you realize your potential and dream career.

With best wishes.
