About College

IMDR a leading Management Institute in Pune was established in 1974 as a constituent unit of the Deccan Education Society. It took over the MBA programme of the MBA Center of the University of Pune and the DBM programme, run in the BMCC (a sister institution) since 1968. Affiliated to the University of Pune, the IMDR was also a recognised centre for research leading to PhD.

In 1977, the IMDR became an autonomous institution by voluntarily delinking from the University of Pune. Since then it has carried on its activities, independent of the University or other statutory bodies. The rationale of this step was stated in these words: “…to make our teaching programmes, methods of teaching and examination more comprehensive, more flexible and more result-oriented….”. IMDR is a community of students, staff and faculty striving to be vibrant with learning processes in which individuals discover THEMSELVES while being PRODUCTIVE with their capabilities and CREATIVE with their energy. We also nurture RELATEDNESS with the world outside so that we grow by sharing the wealth of knowledge and experience.

IMDR is committed to the kind of Management Education which contributes to enlightened management practice and sustained growth of work organisation. Our students should be helped to become thoughtful and sensitive professionals, with a commitment to simultaneously contributing to the environment and the self.
