About us

A robust manufacturing foundation is fundamental for India's rapid economic advancement. In line with this imperative, the Indian government has introduced the National Manufacturing Policy to foster the growth of a robust manufacturing sector. Similar initiatives have also emerged in advanced economies like the UK and the US, as both developing and developed nations recognize the pivotal role of manufacturing expansion in job creation and overall economic enhancement. Given these domestic and international endeavors, the Munjal Institute for Global Manufacturing (MIGM) represents a pioneering collaboration between ISB and the visionary founders of the Mohali campus. Its mission is to elevate the standard of manufacturing not only in India but also on a global scale through the principles of operational excellence and innovation.

Established in 2011, the institute offers the Advanced Management Programme in Operations and Supply Chain.

Our Vision

The Munjal Institute for Global Manufacturing  at ISB is the premiere independent academic institution for operational excellence and innovation in the manufacturing ecosystem in India and beyond.

Our Mission

To engender synergistic engagement between industry, academia and the government in India and beyond through 

-> Thought leadership

Munjal Institute for Global Manufacturing (MIGM) aims to raise the level of manufacturing in India through operational excellence and innovation. Research at MIGM focuses on Industry 4.0, Blockchain, Skilling and Aerospace & Defence. A critical channel for dissemination of this research is through education. MIGM conducts the Advance Management Programme in Operations and Supply Chain and short term programmes in collaboration with Centre for Executive Education.


PGP Specialisation

Consistent with our goal of preparing leaders, managers and exceptional contributors in the manufacturing sector, ISB has started offering manufacturing specialization courses as part of the Post Graduate Programme in Management (PGP) since 2012. These courses provide students with a cutting edge advantage in understanding different sectors such as automotive , textiles , chemicals, energy and FMCG, etc.



Executive Education

The Institute works with ISB’s Centre for Executive Education (CEE) in developing learning solutions relevant to manufacturing  organizations that help drive business performance and growth within an organisation. 





Advanced Management Programme in Operations and Supply Chain

Operations and Supply Chain have emerged as the high growth sectors in India. Prime Minister of India, Mr. Narendra Modi, had launched the ‘Make in India’ programme to place India on the world map as a manufacturing hub and give global recognition to the Indian economy. India is expected to overtake Germany to become the fourth largest economy in the world by the end of the year 2026. The new growth trajectory will result in the need for skills, other than just domain competency. Proactiveness and understanding of market competition will be an essential skill for success in the Operations and Supply Chains sector. Indian players must develop a better strategy to understand their customers and the changing patterns, to remain competitive against China. Professionals at middle and senior management level, belonging to operations & supply chain domain need to acquire competencies like innovation, data analysis, competitive strategy, negotiation skills etc., to remain relevant in the highly competitive business landscape. The key focus areas of the course are as follows > Acquiring an in depth understanding of the operations and supply chain ecosystem > Creating leadership to move the entire sector to the next level of productivity, profitability, and quality > Training current organisations to achieve operational and supply-chain excellence.



Research is carried out at Munjal Institute for Global Manufacturing for publication in reputed scholarly journals and from an industry perspective. We work on publishing papers, books and reports in our focus areas.

Project Initiative

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’.  Currently, we are working on the project, ‘Impact of Industry 4.0 on the Future of Work in the Textile Industry in India’ and 'Female Labour Force Participation Rate in Manufacturing' .


ISB has enduring relationships with some of India’s most renowned leaders in operations and supply chain, many of whom are invited to speak during AMPOS residencies and share their experiences in specific sectors. These inspiring sessions provide students first-hand insights into operations and supply chain, including critical challenges faced by the 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. This exercise also helps build and strengthen the relationship between ISB and the industry leaders.
