The Indian Institutes of Management have been the archetype of management schooling in India since their foundation after our independence in 1947. IIMs are perceived as the most prestigious and elite B-schools in India which lay emphasis on practical experience and critical thinking instead of rote learning and conventional academic schedule. Building on the grand heritage of the IIM brand, IIM Bodh Gaya fosters a culture and curriculum whose sole purpose is to create socially responsible managers and emotionally mature leaders. A dynamic curriculum in consonance with academics and industry experts provides the students with the opportunities to master new skills and explore diverse perspectives. Apart from the conventional classroom setup, IIM Bodh Gaya lays emphasis on practical learning as students partake in case studies, sessions with industry experts, live projects, etc. The institute’s thrust on meaningful research is evident through the credentials and accomplishments of its faculty that has publications in ABDC and Scopus listed journals of repute. In a short span of time, IIM Bodh Gaya has strengthened its position in the corporate world, with its students contributing in illustrious business organizations of the country.

Korea while discussions are underway with many other international universities across the globe.
Historically, the eastern part of the country has been an eminent seat of learning with ancient universities of Nalanda and Vikramshila where learners from all over the world congregated for pursuit of knowledge. Having been recognized as a key Buddhist destination, Bodh Gaya attracts millions of tourists every year. An ancient seat of learning that represents one of the prominent paths to enlightenment, Bodh Gaya is home to Mahabodhi Temple, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and several other notable temples and monasteries. Nestled in Bodh Gaya is the iconic 80 ft. statue of Buddha and Indosan Nippon temple that was constructed in 1972 and has a gallery of Japanese art.
