The permanent campus of IIM Amritsar is proposed to be built on 60 acres of flatland near Manawala on the Amritsar-Jalandhar GT Road and will be mentored by IIM Kozhikode for the first three years or until IIM Amritsar is able to manage operations on its own.
The Institute offers only the Post Graduate Program in Management and admissions are through the Common Admission Test (CAT), followed by GD/WAT and PI. Faculty members from IIM Kozhikode deliver courses at IIM Amritsar. The Institute also provides hostel facilities for boys and girls, which are located at different locations and include basic amenities like fans, lockable wardrobes, beds, pillows, mattresses, study tables, and chairs. Students must bring their own bedsheets and other personal items.
