Welcome to IIM Bodh Gaya, situated in the land of enlightenment, where knowledge and wisdom rest in the soil, and constant quest for the unknown is the quintessential strive. This year marks our successful completion of 5 years of academic excellence, and amidst these uncertain, volatile, and ambiguous times, our conviction and faith towards becoming the next “Seat of Learning” in this part of the world drives and motivates us to achieve more. At IIM Bodh Gaya, values like “Mindfulness” are in the air and “To Be’’ is prized over “To Do”. With such rich values, which are the need of the hour in today’s chaotic world, we are very confident in making a very significant contribution in creating a pool of effective leaders. Our mission is to develop meticulously curious minds into leaders of persevering brilliance who seek to move ahead of time, with an ability to manoeuvre firms through the ever-changing business environment. We seek to honour the responsibility of creating socially responsible managers by blending in the old and the new, the traditional and the technological. At Bodh Gaya, we focus on imbibing in our students’ timeless virtues like compassion, integrity, sustainability, inclusiveness, diversity, and we take pride in being the IIM with a special focus towards mindfulness, towards creating aware leaders and mindful managers. We strive to transform young ambitious minds into virtuous leaders with a focus on mindfulness, high on intelligence as well as emotional quotient, and in these trying times, I am sure the values imbibed in them here at IIM Bodh Gaya will help pave the way to a brighter and better tomorrow.
We have made sure that our students get a mix of both, strong fundamentals and corporate exposure through dedicated sessions with eminent personalities from across diverse sectors. And the academic curriculum is revised from time to time based on the latest trends to ensure that our students are industry-ready. We understand that for today’s organizations, the need of the hour is to have responsible management that is capable of making sensible decisions that result in positive long-term implications for the firm, the industry, and the society. Hence, we focus on enhancing the ethical sense and value systems in our students along with the necessary core business concepts which in turn will lead to the development of effective leadership skills.
Besides the academics, our students also learn from their vibrant community. They manage and take part in a number of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities which provide them opportunities to grow beyond classrooms. Our methods aim at training young ambitious minds into mature business professionals. We thank our existing Industry Partners for the invaluable support they have extended to us over the past couple of years. We truly value these relationships and would like to nurture them to higher levels. I also take this opportunity to reach out to new partners to help us serve them, by offering the pool of talented and inspired young minds whom we have nurtured for them. We wish to have a long-lasting and mutually beneficial relationship with the Industry & corporate world who are our important stakeholders. Kindly treat this as a personal invitation to visit our Campus. Looking forward to meeting you!

Welcome to IIM Bodh Gaya! I would first like to thank all the corporates who are recruiting the young talents of our country even in the current difficult times. With great pleasure, I present to you the fifth and the sixth batch of our budding institute. Our students come from diverse educational backgrounds ranging from engineering to management, to social sciences along with industrial experience in various domains of consulting, sales & marketing, finance etc. This diversity enriches our culture and provides each of our students the opportunities to learn from the differences and be better leaders of the future.
Our dynamic pedagogy, which is a union of conventional classroom learning and practical industrial exposure with active participation in case studies, live projects, and industry interactions, helps and motivates our students to strive for excellence in every sphere. The talk series, competitions, etc., not only provide them with the industrial exposure but also instill in them the spirit of collaboration which is an essential trait for any good leader. With this fusion, we ensure that our students are well equipped to handle and thrive in the real corporate world and would be an asset to any organisation they are a part of.
We also provide mentorship programs to our students where each of our students is assigned to a faculty, who help track their overall progress and guide them through any difficulty that they may face when it comes to their industry interactions. This ensures that all our students are at par with industry expectations.
Apart from keeping up with the industry requirements in terms of their skills, our students partake in various extracurricular activities, ranging from sports to cultural events, which helps in their overall development. In addition, our initiative to create mindful leaders of the future, takes our students an extra mile and provides them with all the necessary tools to be a value addition to your organization.
So, with immense pride, I recommend our students to your esteemed organization and would like to invite you to participate in the recruitment process of this Enlightening IIM. This brochure contains all the necessary information that you may need. We look forward to building a healthy and long-lasting relationship with you and your organisation. Welcome!
