About IILM

IILM was established in 1993, under the aegis of the Ram Krishan & Sons Charitable Trust. With 3 decades of experience in training future leaders, innovators, entrepreneurs and managers, it has emerged as one of the distinguished Universities in the Delhi NCR area. The University has been set up under The Haryana Private Universities (Amendment) Act, 2018 (Haryana Act No. 10 of 2018). It is located at Golf Course Road, Sector 53, Gurugram, with a built area of over 1.5 lac sq. ft. and known for its state-of-the-art facilities. We are centrally located with safe and secure campuses in New Delhi, Gurugram, and Greater Noida. IILM University offers a holistic and integrated approach to learning across a broad range of programmes from Liberal Arts, Management, Design, Computer Science, Media & Communication, Psychology and Law. Our global and national outreach supports us through over 30 academic collaborations. We aim to nurture the next generation of thought leaders as engaged citizens adding meaningful contributions to society. IILM has a strong alumni network of more than 12000+ alumni. Their success stories play a pivotal role in making IILM a preferred choice for students of Delhi NCR and other parts of the country.

About Gurugram

Gurugram, the millennium city and one of the most happening cities of the country is located in the National Capital Region (NCR), just 33.4 km away from the Indian capital, New Delhi. The city is a significant urban centre and a corporate-cum-commercial hub in the state of Haryana. As history of Gurugram unfolds, the city got its initial name from the name of Guru Drona or Dronacharya (imperial teacher to Pandavas and Kauravas). The region was actually presented to the royal guru as dakshina by his disciples, the Pandavas (five sons of Pandu). The region was then referred to as Guru-gram, which can be taken as ‘Village of the Spiritual Teacher’. Afterwards, the region gained its present-day name of Gurugram in the natural course of time. Nevertheless, the city still puts up Guru Gram amongst its stunning development. It is apparent that Gurugram has its roots from the times of Mahabharata (Sanskrit epic of ancient India).
