iima_panorama_complex  The Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad is considered to be one of the premier institutes of management education in India. IIM Ahmedabad was ranked as the top business school in India according to the Business Today B-School Rankings in 2007-08 and the ET B-school Survey 2007. It all started with Dr Vikram Sarabhai and a few other public spirited industrialists realizing that agriculture, education, health, transportation, population control, energy, and public administration were all vital elements in a growing society and that it was necessary to link these meaningfully with industry. The result was the creation of the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad in 1961 as an autonomous body with the active collaboration of the Government of India, Government of Gujarat, and industry.

IIM-A was conceived not purely as a business school, but as a school of management. Its mission is to professionalize Indian management through teaching, research, training, institution building and consulting. It also aims to professionalize some of the vital sectors of India's economy.

The building is designed by Louis Kahn, who was an exponent of exposed-brick architecture. The most distinctive features of the plan are the numerous arches and square brick structures with circles carved out in the facade. An extension to the old campus built across the 132 feet (40 m) ring road was commissioned in 2003 with student dorms and classrooms built in a contemporary concrete design which strives to retain some elements of the old campus' architecture such as the arches and exposed brick facades.

For students who are married, separate housing is available on the campus. The faculty and staff residences are situated just behind the student dormitories.

The excellent sports and fitness facilities on the campus ensure that students can remain fit and healthy to take on the strenuous academic challenges.
