Over the years we have developed our identity while proving to be a leader in management training and education. We have empowered thousands to carve better futures for themselves.
The NIBM has been functioning for 55 years having established in 1968 under the purview of the Ministry of Industries and Scientific Affairs in collaboration with the United Nations Development Program as an agency for the implementation of the programs of the ILO. It was subsequently incorporated as the National Institute of Business Management by an Act of Parliament (The National Institute of Business Management Law No 23 of 1976). Certain amendments to this Act were brought in under Act No. 28 of 1991.
