Institute for Financial Management and Research (IFMR) was established in 1970 with support from ICICI and the House of Kotharis. Guided by an eminent board that is well represented by industry and academia, IFMR has always been a leader in responding to the ever-changing demands laid on management graduates.
From its origins as an institute that offered specialized Management Development Programs for working executives, it has over the past four decades evolved into a Business School that offers full-time residential programs in management. Apart from mainstream MBA degrees, IFMR also offers highly specialized graduate courses such as Financial Engineering and Development & Sustainable Finance program. These unique initiatives are made possible by its strong base of permanent faculty. Students also get valuable insights from IFMR’s various research centers; these centers undertake original research in Finance, Insurance, and Risk Management.
