In its inbound student exchange programme, IIM Trichy invites students from global partner institutions to spend one term of their post-graduation programme (the fifth term) at its campus. This programme helps inbound students to broaden their perspective, identify new ways of looking at a business situation and learn to manage a diverse group by interacting with students, who come from a plethora of cultural and educational backgrounds, at the host institute.

Over thirty of the country's best faculty, in business management domain, provide a strong base for the institute to build upon and serve as an asset for IIM Trichy to take pride in. Their vast academic knowledge as well as industry expertise guide students to delve deep into various aspects of business as per interest. Added to its faculty pool is a good number of guest faculties from prestigious institutions across India.

Apart from the privilege of being taught by some of the country’s brightest minds, inbound students also engage in peer learning with a diverse category of students from across India. In addition, the institute hosts frequent talks by renowned industry experts and businessmen for students to familiarise with ongoing business challenges and trends.

Moreover, Tiruchirappalli (commonly known as Trichy) is known for its prominent historical monuments at Rockfort, Srirangam and Thanjavur. The enchanting architecture in these places speak of the rich history of ancient India. Inbound students at IIM Trichy thus get the best of both worlds - the business setting and the cultural heritage of India.
