The first thing that anyone who has been here since last year will remember will be the campus. The campus is a little far from the city but the state of the art facilities in the 170 acres plot more than makes up for its remoteness. It is now one of the largest among the IIMs. The infrastructure coupled with all the ultra-modern facilities both inside classrooms and in hostels makes it the best place to study and even to visit for that matter (if you don’t mind the weather).

Learning in an IIM can happen from a plethora of sources. The abundance of knowledge in the learning resource (LRC) center is something that one will notice in the institute. The LRC is built to stand out in the middle of the campus with its architectural elegance. The faculty in IIM Trichy is also very resourceful and are ready to pitch in anytime for the knowledge enhancement of each student. The experience of sitting in the state of the art classroom listening to a lecture can make a world of difference to those who seek knowledge in various management concepts.

Apart from the academic IIM Trichy also facilitates the overall development of the individual through the different initiatives one of which is the Make A Difference (MAD) project. Through this program, the management urges the student to be a part of the community and emphasizes the need to give back to the society. This is in line with the institute’s mission of taking part in the development of Trichy city which the college does through many programs such as the CII City meet the institute along with Trade body Confederation of Indian Industry has agreed to work on making the city a hub for industrial investment.
