Currently, IIM Bodhgaya is being mentored by IIM Calcutta. This means that during the mentorship period, faculty members from IIM-C are delivering the lectures to students at IIM Bodhgaya, until the permanent faculty members for IIM-Bodhgaya are recruited. Simply put, it means that the course curriculum, design and teaching pedagogy followed at the new IIM are on the same lines as that of the management giant i.e. IIM Calcutta.
