The Indian Institute of Management Lucknow (also referred to as IIM Lucknow or IIML), was established in 1984, by the Government of India, as a national level school of management science.

The admission process to get into IIM Lucknow is quite tough. A highly competitive exam known as CAT (Common Admission Test) is conducted all over the country once a year. The CAT is considered to be one of the toughest exams in India with a success rate of less than one in a hundred. All IIM's have their own ways of evaluating students who clear the CAT. Some institutes conduct personal interviews while some conduct GD's (Group Discussions).
The campus is spread over an area of 185 acres and is beautifully landscaped. The campus has a well-equipped library, a modern computer centre, an automated programme office, class room block having 950 seats, twelve furnished hostels with single-seater bachelor accommodation for 495 students. A medical centre, guest house, a sports complex for indoor games and residential buildings and community centre and all lecture halls of PGP block are air-conditioned.
