The Indian Institute of Management, Calcutta (IIMC)—the oldest Indian Institute of Management—continues to be a beacon of quality management education and research in the country and beyond. In its diamond jubilee year, it is entitled to exude a sense of pride and glory in its manifold accomplishments in the field of professional higher education. Over the past six decades, it has contributed to the formation of cutting-edge managerial leadership through its alumni who have scaled enviable heights in the domains of business, entrepreneurship, public policy, academia, and the non-governmental sector. Its doctoral programme, since the mid-1970s, has produced hundreds of fine researchers and educators who are the backbone of higher institutions of management education in India and abroad. These Fellows (now doctorates) from IIMC have rendered yeoman service to the nation by providing much-needed thought leadership in the field. They have been the carriers of the best traditions of knowledge creation and dissemination in the management sciences.
