The long-term vision for IAM is to position itself as a Multi-varsity to meet the requirements for trained managers and design professionals, with a broad base of applied management skills, competencies, and knowledge typical of the dynamic Apparel Business in a global context.
IAM offers as an institute a distinct bridge between the export and domestic sectors of the Indian textile and apparel industry.
The multi-varsity offers a “bouquet” of programs/ courses under twinning/validation from select premier international/ national institutes apart from offering its own certificate/ diploma programmes. With its strong ties with the core Fashion/Apparel industries and ownership of the industry, the institute is able to continually draw upon the industry for both faculty resources and training inputs, thereby making its teaching programmes unique, vocationally apt, industry focused and covering the entire “fibre-to-fashion”, “concept to consumer” chain.
IAM is focused on shaping industry-ready professionals who are ready to hit the ground and run in this fiercely competitive industry.

Envisioned growth of the Indian Apparel industry will need over one million merchandisers, marketing and design professionals, strategic design managers, product development experts, production managers and technologists with more in-depth knowledge & skills in the next 5 years and IAM is poised to fill this gap for competent professionals in the textile, fashion and lifestyle industry while working closely with the training arm of AEPC, the network of ATDC’s across the country for industry-driven solutions.
