Rare among management schools, the agricultural sector has been a focus area of IIMA right from the beginning, since the 1960s. Faculty members like D. K. Desai and V. K. Gupta played an important role in building the agricultural research centre, now known as the Centre for Management in Agriculture (CMA). Since 1970, IIMA began offering a unique programme, now known as the PGP-FABM (Food & Agri-business Management), regularly ranked as the best programme in this category in the world.
Prof. Prakash M Shingi, associated with IIMA and CMA for three decades, and the Officiating Director of IIMA at one time, passed away on Aug 15, 2020. You can learn more about him on this link. A one-page extract from his 2011-article on the founding of CMA is attached as the document of the month.
Incidentally, after IIMA started the Armed Forces Programme in 2006, the slogan 'Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan' rings well for the institute.
