About AIM

Founded in 2009, Academy of Indian Marketing (AIM) is a consortium of leading management institutions offering world-class management education and research activities through doctoral and equivalent programs.

AIM was conceived by two marketing scholars in two different continents. Dr Jagdish Sheth (Atlanta, USA) and Prof. Neelemegham (India). With Dr Sheth and Prof. Neelamegham at the helm, deans and directors of India’s top-rated business schools/institutions were convinced that a common platform was a boon to nurture the research activities in the Marketing domain, leading to the formation of AIM.

On 21st May 2009 Academy of Indian Marketing was registered and received the certificate of incorporation by Registrar of Companies, Mumbai as a Not for Profit company U/S.25 of Companies Act in India. Dr Jagdish Sheth - the Founder and Chairman are supported by the Co-founders - Prof. Neelamegham, Mr Rajeev Karwal and Dr V. Kumar and the Executive Director –Mr. Jayant Shah.

AIM has successfully hosted/supported various conferences and doctoral consortium and is committed to its vision and mission of promoting research in the area of marketing and promoting marketing as a discipline with active support from academia and industry.



2012 became another landmark year for the AIM as it successfully hosted the Inaugural AIM- AMA Sheth Foundation Doctoral Consortium at the Alliance University campus, Bangalore, India. AIM will be always thankful to Mr Dennis Dunlap under whose stewardship AMA (first time in its history) agreed to allow AIM to replicate the AMA Sheth Foundation Doctoral Consortium (outside of US) in India. AIM is looking at hosting the doctoral consortium annually at different campuses of its member institution who wish to co-host the same.
