Kousali Institute of Management Studies  


Kousali Institute of Management Studies (KIMS) since its inception, is a B-School with a difference. Established in 1976, KIMS is a bustling campus setup under the aegis of Karnatak University, Dharwad. KIMS has emerged as fully integrated management institute of higher learning. KIMS is dedicated to develop socially sensitive and ethical managers with sound knowledge of contemporary management concepts.

The Institute fosters and nurtures leaders of tomorrow who are capable of making difference in the society. The institution works very closely with the industry and actively seeks the participation of industry leaders in development of course offerings and to take up research in emerging areas. KIMS was the first department in the KUD to adopt the CBCS system. The CBCS system emphasis more on practical knowledge of the business world rather than the old form of academic studies. The course content gives equal weight age to both external as well as internal assessment. The internal assessment is based on the live project work which involves inputs by the industries, experts and course teachers. This also helps us to keep our offerings current and relevant as per the needs of the industry.

Education at KIMS is primarily based on powerful concepts of Creation of Knowledge, Dissemination of knowledge and Application of Knowledge. The students have performed exceedingly well and often crossed unmarked terrain in their journey to create new lives for themselves through hard work (Morning 8am to Evening 7pm) and sacrifice, making it easy for the future batches to follow in their footsteps. This was, largely facilitated by faculty of KIMS, which is an eclectic, learned and committed. The pedagogical tools applied by the faculty members constantly motivate the students to be innovative, competent and creative. The learning imparted by our highly experienced faculty encourages students to inculcate in them, the values of self-reliance, which stand them in good stead in becoming successful managers and brand ambassadors of their organizations.

The 1800 plus strong network of the alumni, its ambassadors, spread all over the globe, holding leading positions in industry and academia alike, are a testimony to the Institute's focus of nurturing individual actualization and the pursuit of excellence.

From the day of its inception, KIMS nurtured a stream of students to become a leading management Institute with a global vision
