The Government of independent India focused on the development of indigenous science and technology after 1947. As a technology base was being created, it became clear that the country needed to simultaneously augment management talent and resources. This led to the creation of the Indian Institutes of Management in the country.
The Indian Institute of Management Bangalore (IIM Bangalore) is one of the best management institutes in India. It was established in the year 1973. IIMB selects students for its courses through the Common Admission Test (CAT).
It is widely considered to be one of the toughest to get in MBA programs in the world. The Institute firmly believes in the importance of management education and the critical role today's students play in managing the highly competitive and varied businesses of the future. IIM B is the only B School in India to be ranked among Top 10 Asia-Pacific B-Schools according to the QS Global Business School Survey 2009.
All the students are provided with accommodation on campus in well-appointed single room in the institute hostels. 24 hours Internet connectivity, fully automatic washing machines, music room and recreation room are standard features. The hostels also have intercom facility, which is linked to the institute intercom. The campus was also the site for the shooting of the upcoming bollywood film titled Three Idiots directed by Rajkumar Hirani and starring Aamir Khan, Kareena Kapoor, R. Madhavan and Sharman Joshi. IIM Bangalore has seen excellent placements for the past many years.
