Chairman’s Message


The National Institute of Cooperative Management society, (which runs the institute viz. Shri Jairambhai Patel Institute of Business Management) was established in 1995 to provide higher education in the field of management for the young graduates. Apart from the higher education, the institute is engaged in providing training, research and consultancy support to the cooperative organizations and rural development organizations in India. NICM’s mission is to create professional managers with precise values and principles; to increase competency and managerial skills of management professionals working in corporate as well as cooperative sector.

The core of NICM’s operating philosophy is to build and sustain a partnership between rural people and committed professional managers. Through this, NICM strives to contribute to the process of promoting sustainable development and social justice in India’s rural society. NICM has become a frontrunner in professionalizing the development of India’s rural sector. Over the years it has provided management training, support and research facilities to students committed to rural development and in this process it has brought within its ambit several co-operatives, government organizations, government development agencies, international development organizations and funding agencies.

It is recognition of NICM’s strength that one of the strongest inter-active national knowledge networks, Gujarat Technological University, Gujarat University, All India Council for Technical Education, NABARD & BIRD have recognized and accredited the institute and have admitted NICM as a full collaborator.

I invite you to explore and enjoy NICM’s website.
