About the college

The student city of Manipal, Karnataka plays host to the T.A. Pai Management Institute, fondly known as TAPMI. With academic rigor and experiential learning at its core, TAPMI’s Post Graduate Diploma in Management Programs are approved by All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) since its constitution.

Established in 1980, TAPMI is one among the 7 institutes in India and 5% of the top business schools worldwide to have been accredited with the illustrious Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) accreditation, the oldest and toughest accreditation in the world of business education. It is also the 5th institution in India to have both the AACSB as well as Association of MBAs (AMBA) accreditation.

We take pride in the academic rigor and relevance practiced at TAPMI. We imbibe thorough business knowledge in students, making them business ready right from the first day. We also believe in the power of experiential learning, one of the pillars of education at TAPMI. Every element in our action based and outcome centric curriculum is geared towards teaching students through real experiences. Case study based teaching lessons, simulation games, Management in Practice (MIP), Brandscan and our Exchange Programs are a few engagements that take students beyond the four walls of the classroom and instill leadership qualities that in turn enable the students to tackle business challenges head-on.

Named after our founder, Shri. T.A. Pai, TAPMI was established with a vision of creating responsible business leaders, leaders who dream and achieve but with a resolve to make a difference. This is what we seek to create.

TAPMI is not just a B-school, it is a center of business excellence with over 30 years of experience in academics, research and Executive Education. We seek to promote and raise the standard of finance and management research in the country with our Banking and Finance Center and the Ph.D. program. TAPMI’s Executive Education course was introduced with the aim to improve management practice in the industry. It enables existing managers to develop capabilities to transform themselves and their companies.
