Diversity in student bodies, teaching community, and staff is important for DBIM to fulfill its mission of providing quality education at par with the best management institutes in the world. The reasons why DBIM believe so strongly that diversity should be one factor among the many considered in admissions and hiring include:
DBIM has consistently managed to attract over 20% of its admitted students from states outside Assam. Over 30% of the admitted students in each batch are female graduates. The institute has achieved this diversity on college campuses without any quotas or admission of unqualified applicants. The four consequitive best B-School awards earned since 2009 vouch for the quality of the students and the success of the diversity DBIM cherishes.
The presence of the Salesians of Don Bosco in over 180 countries in the world allow DBIM to invite visiting and guest faculty from across the globe. The knowledge shared by these invited intellectuals provide students with a global experience within the state. DBIM students have undegone classes conducted by faculty from Germany, Italy, Australia, Denmark, The United States of America, The United Kingdom and a number of other developed countries.
