IISWBM, Kolkata is a premier management educational institute in Eastern India. It is also the oldest institute in India offering MBA.
The institute was established in 1953 when it was formed by a resolution of the Syndicate of the University of Calcutta. During the initial years, the Institute was referred to as All India Institute of Social Welfare and Business Management. It was in 1958 that the name IISWBM was incorporated.
The prevalence of heritage buildings like University of Calcutta, Presidency College, Calcutta Medical College and All India Institute of Hygiene and Public Health surrounding IISWBM enhances its academic ambience.
The Institute building comprises two blocks. The foundation stones of both buildings were laid by Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, the then Prime Minister of India and Dr. B. C. Roy, Chief Minister of West Bengal.
IISWBM is supported by some of the most acclaimed organisations like the Ministry of Scientific and Cultural Affairs: Government of India, All India Board of Technical Studies in Management: Ministry of Education, Government of West Bengal, Bengal Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Indian Chamber of Commerce, Bharat Chamber of Commerce and Bengal National Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
Sir Biren Mookerjee, Srimati Renuka Ray, Professor D K Sanyal, Lala Lakhsmipat Singhania and many other noted personalities are associated with the institute.
In the course of its existence for five decades, the Institute has produced quite a few distinguished alumni. Some of the better known of these alumni are Professor Sumantra Ghosal of London Business School, L. N. Mittal of the ISPAT group, Shri Sudhir Jalan, Former President of FICCI and Dr. C. V. Chandrashekaran, Managing Director of Balmer Lawrie group.
After a day spent in lectures and group projects, students can stop by Ashish Da’s canteen for a fish chop. A new campus is being built closer to the hostels.
