Dr. Vikram Sarabhai, a noted scientist and industrialist, other Ahmedabad-based industrialists (led by Mr. Kasturbhai Lalbhai), and the Government of Gujarat (led by Dr. Jivaraj Mehta) played a major role in the creation of the Institute. IIM-A was registered as a society with a Board of Governors to oversee the functioning of the Institute. The Board has representatives from the Governments of India and Gujarat, the Industry, the IIM-A Society, the IIM-A faculty, etc IIM-A was conceived not to be purely a business school, but a school of management. It's mission is to professionalise Indian management through teaching, research, training, institution building and consulting. It also aims to professionalise some of the vital sectors of India's economy such as agriculture, education, health, transportation, population control, energy, and public administration. In its formative years, IIM-A collaborated with the Harvard Business School (HBS). Largely as a consequence of this collaboration, IIM-A pioneered the case method of teaching in India. Not only did IIM-A adopt a distinct pedagogy, its architecture also took a distinctive form. Louis Kahn, a well-known American architect, conceived the design: a blend of austerity and majesty; spaces for casual interaction; frequently changing perspectives; a balance between modernity and tradition that captures the spirit of contemporary India. His vision took the shape of a vast ochre temple of learning on a 60-acre site that attracts visitors from all over the world. IIMA has evolved from being India's premier management institute to a notable international school of management in just four decades.

It all started with Dr. Vikram Sarabhai and a few spirited industrialists realising that agriculture, education, health, transportation, population control, energy and public administration were vital elements in a growing society, and that it was necessary to efficiently manage these industries. The result was the creation of the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad in 1961 as an autonomous body with the active collaboration of the Government of India, Government of Gujarat and the industrial sectors. It was evident that to have a vision was not enough. Effective governance and quality education were seen as critical aspects. From the very start the founders introduced the concept of faculty governance: all members of the faculty play an important role in administering the diverse academic and non-academic activities of the Institute. The empowerment of the faculty has been the propelling force behind the high quality of learning experience at IIMA. The Institute had initial collaboration with Harvard Business School. This collaboration greatly influenced the Institute's approach to education. Gradually, it emerged as a confluence of the best of Eastern and Western values.
