Placed among top 1000 B-Schools in the world by Ed Universal, Paris, and Ranked consistently among top 40 institutions of the country, Prestige Institute of Management, Gwalior (PIMG) is a UGC NAAC Accredited �A� Grade institute approved under section 2F 12B of the UGC Act 1956, and is a recognized Research Center of and permanently affiliated to Jiwaji University, Gwalior. PIMG has been rated in A++ category institutions by most rating and ranking agencies all over India for its unparallel contribution in developing socially responsible global business leaders through internationally accepted best practices.

Embarked by offering only BBA programme in 1997 in a rented building, PIMG had a modest start in the arena of management education. With each passing year, the institute kept on adding more programmes to its curriculum responding to the demand of students which clearly manifests the excellence of the institute. In the year 2000, the institute moved to its own campus in a prime location of Gwalior city. Addressing more than 2000 students today, PIMG is recognized as one of the premier institutes for higher learning in the region.

PIMG offers both UG and PG management programmes, viz. BBA, MBA and MBA-Integrated (Five years programme), apart from other programmes like B.Com, BCA, LLB (Hons.) and so on. "We want our management students to get a strong grip on conceptual understanding of their core specialization area. The UG programmes provide the solid base that they need to excel in their PG level," says Dr. S. S. Bhakar, Director, PIMG. The specialty of the MBA integrated programme of PIMG is its approach of the one-year internship opportunity, where the students are asked to go for a full-time internship programme for a year, helping them to gain paramount hands-on knowledge.

Dr. Bhakar opines, "A better learning is a real-life practical training, which gives the students a new experience that remains in the mind longer. This fact made us inculcate optimum practical activities in our curriculum." During the initial years of the establishment, the institution realized that most of the students taking admission at PIMG hail from the Hindi heartland and they are not that proficient in communication skills. This barrier was well eliminated by the Institute through introduction of one-hour skill development class each day where 50 percent emphasis is given on brushing up the language skills and the other 50 percent is devoted to development of skills like: Analytical, Decision Making, Team Building, Leadership, Conflict Handling and Interpersonal etc.
