About us

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 of 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, Munjal Institute for Global Manufacturing is a pioneering effort 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’.

MIGM has an affliation with MIT Sloan School of Management and the curriculum for the Advanced Management Program in Manufacturing and Operations was based on MIT's Leaders for Global Operations program.

The MIGM at ISB is a pioneering effort with the mandate to ‘Raise the Level of Indian Manufacturing’. The vision of our Institute is to be the premier independent academic institution in India for operational excellence and innovation in the manufacturing ecosystem in India and beyond. To enable the vision, we have set for ourselves the mission ‘To engender synergistic engagement between industry, academia and the government in India and beyond through thought leadership, facilitating knowledge sharing, informing government policy and grooming future leaders. Our research endeavours to find long term solutions to deep-rooted problems faced by Indian manufacturing.

 In the recent past, we have worked on the project, ‘Developing Corporate Skilling Strategies to enhance Women’s employability through CSR Programs’. The report highlights the plunging ‘Female Labour Force Participation Rate’ in India and suggests measures for its improvement.  Currently, we are working on the project, ‘Impact of Industry 4.0 on the Future of Work in the Textile Industry in India’.


ISB has enduring relationships with some of India’s most renowned leaders in manufacturing, governance, and business—many of whom are invited to speak during AMPMO residencies to share their experiences in particular sectors. These inspiring sessions give students first-hand insights of manufacturing and the critical challenges faced by the government and corporates. It ensures an enriching learning experience for the students and a chance for them to interact closely with the distinguished academics and business experts, complementing their rigorous course curriculum. This exercise also helps build and strengthen the relationship between ISB and the world's leading professionals.
