IIMA is a place where 90 odd full time faculty and an equal number of visiting faculty of international standards meet to teach courses, do research and consulting. IIMA creates a unique environment whereby faculty can take the fullest advantage in enhancing their careers thru numerous opportunities. Not only does the Institute provide a conducive atmosphere for teaching and research, the Institute also facilitates faculty in actively participating and contributing to national conferences any number of times in a year and international conferences once in a year. The Library resources in the Institute are one of the best in Asia in the management field.
Periodically, the institute receives endowment grants from industry to create Chair professorships. The Institute, through a transparent process, awards these to eminent faculty in recognition, reward and promotion of sustained, outstanding and creative contributions to research and/or teaching.

Apart from the research work the incumbent of the chair is also expected to participate in the Institute's other activities such as teaching in long and short term programmes and consultancy.
