“The road is clear. It is up to the younger generation now to take up the challenge.” – Shantanurao Laxmanrao Kirloskar
Kirloskar Institute of Advanced Management Studies (KIAMS) was set up in 1991 by the Kirloskar Group in Harihar to put its illustrious leader Mr. Shantanurao Laxmanrao Kirloskar’s thoughts to practice.
A pioneer of Indian industry, Mr. S. L. Kirloskar was a visionary who possessed the drive and determination to accomplish his vision.
The emergence and subsequent success of the Kirloskar Group companies in the engineering industry in India marked the realisation of one of his visions. KIAMS dedicated itself to the task of Management Development in the Kirloskar Group and other companies by understanding the need to promote managerial and organisational excellence.
In 1998, KIAMS ventured into training bright, young minds in high-quality management education to meet the managerial leadership needs of the country. This was offered as a two-year fully residential Post Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM) in Harihar. Encouraged by the success of its alumni in the industry, KIAMS opened its second campus in Pune in 2010. Both the campuses are approved by All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE), New Delhi.
The result oriented work culture created at the Institute has brought in its wake several rewarding outcomes. On the placement front students have been placed in several blue chip companies including Amazon India, Oracle Financial Services Software Limited, Bridgestone India Pvt. Ltd., The Nielsen Company, HDFC Bank Ltd., Airtel Ltd., Coffee Day Beverages and Deloitte Consulting India Private Limited. Academic research has resulted in publications in reputed refereed journals in the US, Canada, the UK, Singapore, Hong Kong and India published by Springer, SAGE, World Scientific and Elsevier.
