The Indian Institute of Management Kozhikode (Malayalam: ഇന്ത്യൻ ഇന്സ്റ്റിറ്റ്യൂട്ട് ഓഫ് മാനേജ്മന്റ്, കോഴിക്കോട്, Hindi: भारतीय प्रबंधन संस्थान, कोझिकोड, IIMK) is one of the 13 Indian Institutes of Management set up by the Government of India. The Institute founded in 1996 in collaboration with the State Government of Kerala was the 5th IIM to be established.
The Institute conducts a full range of academic activities in the field of management education covering research, teaching, and training, consulting and intellectual infrastructure development. The Institute emphasises development of analytical skills and a focus on global and cross-cultural issues with a balance between business demands and social concerns.
Indian Institute of Management Kozhikode was instituted in 1996 by the Government of India as the fifth Indian Institute of Management in collaboration with the Government of the state of Kerala. In 1997, the first batch of 42 students in the Post Graduate Program (PGP), equivalent to MBA, commenced at the temporary campus at the National Institute of Technology Calicut. In 2000, the site of the present campus at Kunnamangalam was identified. The following year, Joseph Stein (also the architect of the India Habitat Centre in Delhi) and Stein Mani Chowla Architects began the design and construction of the institute. In 2003, IIM Kozhikode moved into its hill-top campus. The then President of India, APJ Abdul Kalam and the then Chief Minister of Kerala, Mr. A.K. Antony, inaugurated the campus.
Interactive Distance Learning, an online management education programme for working executives, was introduced in 2001-02. IIM Kozhikode was the first institute in Asia to offer a distance learning programme in management for working executives. Management Development Programme was also introduced the same year. The institute increased the number of students in PGP to 180 in 2005.In the batch of 2013 the intake is going to be around 400 for PGP. IIMK started its doctoral programme, Fellow Program in Management(FPM) in 2007. The intake of women in the PGP course was pro-actively increased to 30% from batch of 2010-12 to improve the number of women in management roles in India. In 2010, IIMK signed a memorandum of understanding with Yale University to establish a Center of Excellence for Academic Leadership as part of Singh-Obama Knowledge Initiative.
The Institute is located in Kunnamangalam, a sub-urban area of Kozhikode (previously known as Calicut), Kerala. Kozhikode is the third largest city in Kerala. The campus is spread across two hills which are part of the Western Ghats. Besides classrooms, the campus also has residential facilities for students, faculty and visitors. The campus, set up over 100 acres of land, relies on rain water harvesting as its primary source of water. The location of IIM Kozhikode has been criticized as a problem in attracting good faculty and placements in comparison to the older IIMs at Ahmedabad, Calcutta, Bangalore and Lucknow located close to industrial belts.
IIM Kozhikode has also set up its first satellite campus at InfoPark in Kochi. The campus offers one-year residential executive MBA programme as well as two-year part-time programmes in addition to several short and long-term management development programmes.
The institute's current full-time student body consists of 650 graduate students and 15 doctoral students. The admissions to PGP course is based on the Common Admission Test (CAT) conducted by the IIMs for admission to graduate programs in management at thirteen campuses. CAT is considered by test-takers as one of the most competitive exams in the world, with a success rate of about one in hundred. In 2012, around 2.04 lakh students wrote CAT for getting admission to 2650 IIM seats.
49.5% seats in IIM Kozhikode are caste-based reserved quotas according to affirmative action policy of Government of India. 15% of the admitted students must be of the Scheduled Castes, and 7.5% of seats are reserved for Scheduled Tribes. The Other Backward Classes belonging to the "non-creamy layer" have been provided with 27% reservation since 2008 with the consent of the Supreme Court of India. 3% seats are reserved for Persons with Disability (PWD or DA). The reserved category students are admitted based on the CAT score using relaxed admissions criteria.
The institute also uses group discussions, essays and personal interviews to evaluate the students shortlisted based on CAT scores. In 2013, for shortlisting candidates for group discussion/essay/personal interview, IIMK used an index computed with 50 percent weight for the CAT-2012 score, 15 percent weight for academic performance in secondary school, 15 percent weight for academic performance in higher secondary school, 15 percent weight for academic performance in undergraduate level and 5 percent weight for being a female (to ensure gender diversity). For FPM admissions, candidates with CAT, GMAT or GATE scores are eligible.

IIM Kozhikode, like all IIMs, is an autonomous institution under Ministry of Human Resources Development, Government of India. The institute is free to design its own curriculum and recruit faculty members. In April 2011, Union Minister Kapil Sibal announced that the government is mulling enhancement of the autonomy of IIMs by allowing them to select the director and the chairman of Board of Directors. The PGP (Postgraduate Programme) and the ePGP (Executive Postgraduate Programme) courses have been granted international accreditation by the Association of MBAs (AMBA). IIM Kozhikode charges tuition fees of Rs. 10,00,000 for the two year PGP programme. Merit scholarships are awarded by the Institute to students on the basis of their grades during one academic year. Scholarships are also offered by trusts like Sir Ratan Tata Trust, HCIL, O.P Jindal Group etc.

The two-year Post-graduate Program in Management, equivalent to an MBA, is the flagship education program which aims to prepare young graduates for senior-level positions in industry. The institute stresses on a rigorous evaluation system and "learning to learn" approach through self-study, group work, open-ended discussions and real-life projects.

The institute also offers Executive Management Education Program for working professionals and shorter programmes like Management Development and Faculty Development.
IIMK incubates a Centre of Excellence (CEx), where youth from the marginalized sections of society are imparted training to make them intellectually and emotionally capable of joining reputed companies and educational institutions. The CEx now functions as the Kerala Chapter of the Indian Council of Social Science Research (ICSSR).
Research projects are funded either through IIMK's 'Small Grant Research Project' scheme, by external sources such as the Ministry of Human Resources Development, Government of India, Government of Kerala or through collaborations with foreign universities/research institutes. Fifteen externally sponsored research projects and 40 small grant research projects including the development of cases have been completed during 1997-2007. During the academic year 2006-2007, eighteen journal articles, five book chapters, five edited books, one book, fifteen working papers and three case studies were published.

IIM Kozhikode hosts a fully automated Library & Information Centre (LIC) which is one of the Centres of Development of Digital Libraries in the world. The institute coordinated the South Asia Support Network for Greenstone Digital Library Software at the request of UNESCO and suggested the idea of IIM Library Consortium Movement. The library provides services as an institutional archive.
