Indian Institute of Management, Raipur (IIM-Raipur or IIM-R) was commenced on 2010 as a part of the Government of India’s plan to expand the scope of quality Management studies in the country. It was one of the six IIMs to be set up under the Eleventh Five-Year Plan of 2009.
IIM-R has been very impressive and set up high standards for itself in the few years it has been in operation. It is always ranked among the top institutes in the list of the best Business schools in India by the Ministry of Human Resources Development. Like other IIMs, IIM Raipur also considers CAT scores for admissions and thus, students need to prepare well and score more in the CAT exam to be able to get shortlisted for the further rounds.
The Government of Chhattisgarh has allocated around 200 acres of land for setting up the proposed IIM-R campus in Naya Raipur, the new capital of Chhattisgarh. The new campus is expected to be a state-of-the-art facility with a blend of modernity and culture. In the meantime, Government Engineering College(GEC), Sejbahar is hosting the classes of IIT – R.
Like its other IIM counterparts, IIM-R also offers Diploma to its students. The courses which are offered are:
Post Graduate Program in Management (PGP): Two-Year course on Business management involving six trimesters.
Fellow Programme in Management (FPM): Doctoral programme which allows research scholars to do research on Management related subjects.
Post Graduate Programme in Management for Working Executive (PGPWE): One and a half year course for working professionals. Classes are held on weekends.

The students in IIM-R are taught by a very distinguished faculty as well as prominent guest lecturers from different walks of the industry.
