Leading edge academic learning is at the core of IIMB's Post Graduate Programme in Management (PGP). As students are the most important stakeholders in learning, it is important that their viewpoint is given enough consideration in academic matters. The Academic Council is the student community's voice in all matters pertaining to academics. The Council acts as a link between the students and the faculty, and functions with the end objective of fostering a healthy academic atmosphere where the quality of learning is always on the rise. The Council comprises four members who are elected by the student community. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org

IIMB is cradle of unusual and unconventional brilliance - the selection process ensures that every batch that the institute intakes has a diverse talent quotient. While everyone is academically brilliant, quite a few are also talented in other spheres, such as music, writing, painting, abstract art and poetry. However, with the academic pressures and impending project deadlines, most of these individuals lose their enthusiasm and drive to follow these non-graded pursuits.
Expressions endeavours to be the creative mouth-piece of all literary and artistic creativity - it provides a platform to IIMB community to contribute in building a collective creative quotient of the institute. Such a forum would go a long way in supporting, and increasing the creativity of the entire IIMB family. Email: email@example.com
Every year, professors teach. Students learn. And at the end of the programme they graduate. But during the course of the journey, we (both students and faculty) are sadly missing the wood for the trees. Between the packed sessions, submissions and surprise quizzes, we felt that there hasn't been much interaction between students and faculty. Students can benefit from the extensive expertise of the faculty and faculty can benefit from the experience of the students. So, we formed the club to bridge the chasm between students and faculty.
