OUR FOUNDERS AND BUILDERS: How did 'Management in Agriculture' enter IIMA's Mandate?
"Many people may not know that it was Dr. Vikram Sarabhai who was responsible for making 'management in agriculture' part of the Institute's mandate. Dr. Sarabhai was a visionary who clearly understood the significance of rural and agriculture development for a developing India."
CONTINUITY AND CHANGE: Facilitating the Establishment of the IIMA Computer Network and The History of Computer Networks at IIMA

STORIES THE ARCHITECTURE TELLS US: IIMA's Private Pedestrian Underpass
"The Institute and the architect were clear that the underpass was meant only for pedestrians-the design would have to prevent powered two-wheelers from entering the underpass."
STUDENTS' CORNER: Prayaas
"The children thus started attending school during the day, and came to D-20 for home work and other activities like dancing, artwork and singing, in the evenings. The efforts of the teachers whom Prayaas employed were supplemented by student volunteers and volunteers from outside the IIMA community."
