Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) is one of the oldest and most distinguished universities of the sub-continent. Founded in 1887 as
by the great social reformer, Sir Syed Ahmad Khan, it blossomed into a
full-fledged university in 1920. Having its antecedents in the mission and
purpose of the founder as amelioration of the educational backwardness of the
Muslims of India, it has widened its scope to become an equal-opportunity
institution in post-independence Mohammadan Anglo-Oriental College . India
AMU is residential university. The diversity of the social life on the campus is the true indicator of its heterogeneity. Seventeen Halls of residence (comprising 89 hostels) accommodate more than 20000 students. There are twelve faculties under which more than 90 departments of studies operate. Today, there are more than 20,000 students in its main campus at
. Presently the
total outlay of the University is of the order of 2000 million Indian Rupees. Aligarh
AMU is considered by people – who have come in contact with it directly or indirectly – not simply as a structure of bricks and mortar but as a fountainhead of distinct culture. Being residential in character, it not only provides physical space for the students but also `behavioral space’. The culture of the University instills in the students suave and refined manners, develops interpersonal, entrepreneurial, and leadership skills, and, above all, provides them a sense of living in harmony with other human beings.
The year 1957 saw the beginning of a powerful movement. `ALL INDIA MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATION (AIMA) was created as the national apex body of the management profession, with active support of Government of India and Indian corporate sector. It was intended as a cause group – a body to pool management thoughts in the country, a forum to develop a national managerial ethos, an organization to facilitate the furtherance of management profession and its contribution to the society.
Today, more than five decades later AIMA is recognized for its national stature, upheld by broad base of 58 local management associations and two cooperating associations abroad. Its membership base includes over 30,000 professional individual members and 3,000 corporate organizations as institutional members.
