About Munjal Institute for Global Manufacturing
A robust manufacturing base is a pre-requisite for India to have a vigorous economy. Accordingly, the Indian government has put forth the National Manufacturing Policy to enable strong growth in the manufacturing sector. Similar efforts have been made recently in developed economies like the UK and the US as both developing and developed countries see manufacturing growth as key to job creation and economic improvement. In light of these domestic and global efforts, MIGM is a pioneering effort, going beyond the remit of other research centres, by ISB and the founding supporters of the Mohali campus to ‘raise the level of manufacturing in India and beyond through operational excellence and innovation’.
