Why choose Adani Institute of Infrastructure Management (AIIM)
April 19 2024

Why Choose Adani Institute of Infrastructure Management (AIIM) Infrastructure Opportunity You need to first “Make India” to ensure the success of “Make in India”! Infrastructure sector is the backbone of any nation. Infrastructure development has been the main pillar of global economic development over the last several decades. In advanced countries, the focus has been on upgrading the infrastructure facilities; while in the developing countries, the thrust has been on creating basic infrastructure facilities.

Infrastructure projects in areas such as roads & bridges, urban infrastructure, ports & maritime, power, oil & gas, airports, real estate, mining, renewable energy, etc. are vital for robust economic growth and social development of the country. For this purpose, this sector will require not only a huge amount of investments but also a large number of highly skilled managers and leaders for efficient implementation and operation of huge infrastructure projects. Here are some quick data-points (source: www.ibef.org):

  • US$ 3 Trillion worth Project pipeline in Asia by 2022
  • US$ 800 Billion worth Investment in Infrastructure in India by 2022
  • 30 Million Employment Opportunities in India by 2022

Currently, there is a large gap between the demand and the availability of trained human capital with adequate knowledge and specialization in the infrastructure domain. With the sustained high growth of the Indian economy, this gap is only going to widen in the future. That’s where the idea of an infrastructure institute was conceived at Adani!
