We are fortunate to have had Late Fr. Romuald D'Souza as our founding Director. The institute has grown under his visionary leadership from strength to strength.

Our Mission

To create knowledge and develop responsible and agile leaders at the forefront of cutting-edge business practices. 


Explanation of the terms 

CREATE KNOWLEDGE.  GIM is a graduate institute.  We focus on the creation of basic and applied knowledge in various disciplines of business management.  We believe the creation and dissemination of knowledge is a strong foundation for developing leaders and help us understand the latest development in business practices and strengthen our teaching. 

RESPONSIBLE is sensitivity to multiple stakeholders and an ability to balance their interests. It includes understanding ethical and sustainability issues related to business decisions while mindful of long-term shareholder primacy.  

AGILE is the ability to swiftly respond to evolving technology, customers, competition and society. To be agile is to be a lifelong learner. 

LEADERS identify business opportunities and define goals and strategies. They build organizational capabilities and teams. They empower and motivate people while communicating clearly the corporate purpose within and outside the company.  

FOREFRONT OF CUTTING-EDGE BUSINESS PRACTICES refers to the ability to understand, study, create knowledge, research and adopt emerging practices, ideas, models and technologies in the world of business.

Director’s Message - Dr. Ajit Parulekar

Goa Institute of Management (GIM) continues to pursue lifelong learning opportunities and all-round accomplishments for our students, faculty members, and community. As part of constant renewal, we re-imagined our vision and mission in 2021 following an organization-wide thinking and consultation process. All our programmes continue the excellent performance, and graduating students are received well by the industry. Our alumni occupy prestigious positions as industry leaders and entrepreneurs. The 2021-23 batch has secured 100% placement by mid-December with a significant salary rise for all four PGDM programmes. Our students continue to create outstanding placement records, with this year’s top CTC being highest in the history of GIM.

In academia, the impact of intellectual contributions is manifold. GIM encourages faculty engagement in building intellectual capital through research and consulting. As demonstrated in the GIM faculty’s research output, the intellectual contribution has increased year on year for the last five years, both in terms of number and the ranking of journals. We have strengthened our processes around achieving and improving academic excellence and rigour, this is reflected in a jump in our ranking to 33 at the NIRF 2023. We are forging ahead in our journey and earning recognition for our progress. We are an AMBA, BGA, SAQS and NBA accredited Institution and continue our journey for other international accreditations.

Business education is at an inflection point, and we at GIM strive to equip future leaders with competence and character to address emerging global business and social challenges. Our focus has been to integrate the elements of technology-driven management, responsibility, social sensitivity and happiness into organizational leadership and value-based management. We believe it is the need of the hour to create morally healthy, technologically competent, socially sensitive & sustainable organizations. GIM has been winning several accolades on this front. We were recently declared a "Highly Commended - Sustainability Institute of the year" at the International Green Gown Awards 2022. GIM is the only Indian academic institution to receive this prestigious commendation, in addition to being a finalist in the Student Engagement category. This builds on our ‘Best for the World’ level 5 rating by Positive Impact Rating in 2021 and 2023. Our students have done well at the AIM2Flourish competition as well. The FlourishPrizes 2023 honoree for Global Goal 10 was awarded to GIM students’ story entitled “Access for All - What does that even mean” featuring Access for ALL in India. We continue to inculcate sensitivity towards society and the environment in our students and demonstrate these sensibilities in running the institute as a green and zero-waste campus. 

‘Learning Never Stops at GIM’ defines the ethos of our programs – that learning is a continuous process. For our PGDM programs, out-of-class activities like student clubs; the experience of living on a diverse campus interacting with students from all states of the country, different academic disciplines, and varied religious backgrounds; a good measure of exposure to international students through student exchange programs as well as the India immersion programs GIM conducts for students from the United States, Belgium, Spain and Poland; the uniqueness of GIM being the only campus in India that has a rock band, a theatre group, a film and photography group, and several other such interesting opportunities for experiential learning; being part of GIM’s much appreciated and awarded social sensitivity and community engagement program called GiveGoa and several other opportunities of holistic learning complement our rigorous classroom-based programs. 

The dedicated facilities for Atal Incubation Centre were inaugurated in March’21 under the Atal Innovation Mission (AIM), a flagship initiative set up by the NITI Aayog to promote innovation and entrepreneurship in the country.

MeITY Startup Hub and Startup India “Seed Fund” Scheme have selected AIC-GIM Foundation for the disbursement of funds for over 6 Crores of Seed Money. 

I welcome all the students joining the 2023 batch and look forward to their journey of learning, interactions, self-improvement, cultural sensitization, and enjoying vibrant campus life. I trust that you will have a fruitful and enjoyable tenure at GIM as well as leave your mark on the institute.
