With completion of 50th year, The Indian Institute of Management-Ahmedabad (IIM-A) has another reason to celebrate. The prestigious institution is preparing to admit the highest number of foreign students under its student exchange programme for the next academic session. Officials at IIM-A have owed the large number of foreign students applying for admission into the institute to India's growing global image as an emerging economy.
It was informed that the number of foreign students who had come to the institute under the student exchange programme from premier European and North American business schools amounted to 65. The rising number of foreign students every year that come to pursue education at IIM-A is a proof of the institute's popularity. Most students that come from abroad join the institute's flagship programme, Postgraduate Programme in Management (PGPM). The recent years have also seen a growing demand for the PGPX programme and double specialization courses.
