The faculty is the principal driver of change through its direct involvement in every aspect of the Institute: academics, governance, research, and consultancy. The faculty combines the highest standards of teaching and mentoring with diverse backgrounds as eminent entrepreneurs, policy makers, researchers, theoreticians and consultants. The rich diversity of their backgrounds instills in the students a continuous desire to achieve excellence.
The PGP-FABM program receives key support from the Center for Management of Agriculture (CMA) at IIM-A, comprised of eminent faculty members having practical expertise from various fields, and also invites a number of visiting professors and eminent individuals from other esteemed colleges and the industry.
IIMA faculty members are active and regular participants in international conferences and symposia. They contribute to international journals and collaborate with a broad range of agencies to develop and execute consultancy projects.
Faculty members also serve on executive committees and policy formulation boards of a rich variety of organizations in both private and public domains. These include corporations, financial institutions, cooperative societies, NGOs, academic institutions and international agencies such as FAO, World Bank, and WTO. Such active involvement generates precious cross-fertilization and ensures that all academic programmes are kept up to date.
