In 1991, the foundation stone was laid for what was conceived at that time as an institute of higher education that would serve the Advertising and Communication industry. MICA, erstwhile Mudra Institute of Communications, has evolved since then (and will continue to do so!) to serve the needs of the industry in the field of Strategic Marketing and Communication. Since its inception, MICA has built a niche for itself in India. The credit for this must go to the Students, Management, Faculty and Staff. MICAns are a unique breed – they work hard, play hard, fall in love with the picturesque campus, help keep it that way before going into the corporate world, do well and spread the good word about MICA. MICA’s vision is to create Leadership in Strategic Marketing and Communication. MICA is doing this through each of their courses that they have to offer – PGDM (C) with multiple specializations, FPM, CCC, MDP and various online courses. Within the flagship two year PGDM program they have led the way with the specializations on offer – Brand Management, Advertising Management, Market Research, Media Management, Digital Communications Management and Social Change Leadership. MICA has always strived to stay ahead of the curve by keeping its academic content and pedagogy relevant to prevailing and future industry needs. Today, it is the alma mater of professionals serving in leadership positions in some of the best known companies in India and the world, in marketing, brand management, research & analytics, advertising, media, digital and other related businesses.




Ahmedabad also known as Amdavad (Gujarati pronunciation) is the largest city and former capital of Gujarat, which is a state in India. It is the administrative headquarters of the Ahmedabad district and the seat of the Gujarat High Court. With a population of more than 6.3 million and an extended population of 7.2 million, it is the sixth largest city and seventh largest metropolitan area of India. Ahmedabad is located on the banks of the Sabarmati River, 30 km (19 mi) from the state capital Gandhinagar. Ahmedabad has emerged as an important economic and industrial hub in India. It is the second largest producer of cotton in India, and its stock exchange is the country's second oldest. Cricket is a popular sport in Ahmedabad, which houses the 54,000-seat Sardar Patel Stadium. The effects of liberalization of the Indian economy have energized the city's economy towards tertiary sector activities like commerce, communication and construction. Ahmedabad's increasing population has resulted in an increase in the construction and housing industries resulting in recent development of skyscrapers.
