At IIMU a priority is to ensure that practice meets theory across all functional areas. Students have many opportunities for engagement with industry leaders throughout the year. Udaipur is home to a multitude of mid-sized companies, entrepreneurial ventures and dynamic NGOs that are making Rajasthan a hub of economic and social change. IIMU has established close ties with many of them as well as with key companies from across India.
These interactions are not limited to internships and case discussions. The students organize and moderate summits and panels that bring together experts, thinkers and practitioners from India and abroad. Students also benefit from intensive mentoring by committed and enthusiastic industry professionals.
Corporate leaders visit the IIMU campus throughout the year to give guest lectures covering varied topics in all functional domains, as well as topics on industry practices and major business developments.
