IFMR Graduate School of Business at Krea University (formerly known as Institute for Financial Management and Research), is a leading business school with the objective of moulding ambitious young men and women into competent and socially responsible organisational leaders in a global setting. IFMR currently offers full-time and part-time PGDM/MBA programmes, a Ph.D programme as well as both open and customised management development programmes.
Established in 1970 as a not-for-profit society, IFMR was sponsored by ICICI, the House of Kotharis and other major industrial groups. The current Board of Governors, headed by Mr R Seshasayee – Chairman, IndusInd Bank Ltd, Mumbai, consists of leaders of major corporations in India as well as respected academicians.
IFMR is fortunate to have pre-eminent faculty members, most of whom have Ph.Ds from well known institutions in India and the United States. They have worked and consulted with both national and international organisations. Students are involved in these projects as well, ensuring continuous interaction with industry during their study years.
