Dr. Kamla Chowdhry was the first faculty member to be appointed at IIMA, on July 1, 1962. Since then, over 300 full-time faculty members have worked at the Institute and have retired, resigned from service or, in the case of those who had been appointed for specified terms, left after completing their stints. A few passed away while in service. The median duration of time spent by these faculty members is ten years; over twenty spent more than thirty years at the institute. Most of them stayed on the IIMA campus along with their families and collectively contributed to its development. Some of the research work of former IIMA faculty members is available at the Vikram Sarabhai Library’s Institutional Repository web page on this link.
Details about the current IIMA faculty members are available on this link. IIMA faculty serve in 'Areas', the word 'Area' consciously chosen over the usual 'Department' to convey a more open environment.
The former full-time faculty members (including Directors) of IIMA (as of November 1, 2021) are listed below by the Area with which they were affiliated at the time of their departure from the Institute. Dr. Vikram Sarabhai, the first director of IIMA, functioned in an honorary capacity (1962-65) and was not affiliated to any Area; he is listed under 'Administration' along with the chief administrative officers who are given faculty status. Within an Area, faculty members are ordered by surname. Please click on their names to learn about their contribution to the Institute. Please note that we do not have information on all our former faculty members. In case you can help fill in the gaps, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
