The WMP Experience at IIM Lucknow

Working on the premise that the best business education includes knowledge gained from practical action oriented learning experiences, IIM-L’s approach to education is not only lecture based but primarily oriented towards discussing cases about actual business problems and potential solutions. Every day, students assume the role of a business leader in concrete situation and asked to take decisions with limited or incomplete information.

The B-school’s world class faculty partners with leaders from the corporate world globally to guide the students to think creatively and critically to prepare them to become future leaders. “We groom Leaders who have the capacity to persuade and inspire others, reconcile differing viewpoints, prioritize objectives, capitalize opportunities and make difficult decisions with limited information matching the real scenarios,” IIM-L says.

Every effort is made together to ensure that the students, faculty, staff and alumni join in an atmosphere of collaboration and community. Steps are also taken for creating an inclusive and diverse community of students, faculty and other professionals. They are committed to fostering fairness and equality in the increasingly diverse society- be it the diversity in the classroom or in student life.
