IIM Kozhikode to create Indian Business History Museum
IIM Kozhikode (IIM K), one of India’s premier inclusive business schools, recently launched an initiative to create a Museum of Indian Business History. This museum will house business-related historical artefacts, objects, sculptures, models, photographs, documents, illustrations, etc.

The objective behind the museum is to inspire aspiring business entrepreneurs in the country and show them the path to success through innovative ideas, diligence and perseverance.
India in the pre-liberalisation days was a victim of trade barriers and restricted trade policy.

IIM K has requested around a hundred CEOs and leaders of major business houses including Tatas, Ambanis, Birlas for their contributions to this museum.

Most of them are expected to contribute to the museum.

The institute will formally open the museum on its Foundation Day in 2011. The initial investment for this project is estimated to be around R1 crore.
