IIM Indore IPM 2014 – Integrated Programme in Management
In this brief note we articulate the rational on the design and implementation of the proposed five-year integrated programme in management (IPM) of IIM Indore.
Five Year Integrated Programme in Management
The five-year integrated programme in management is aimed at students who have passed out class XII / Higher Secondary or equivalent from various schools in India. It is widely believed that our ability to influence the younger students is much greater. It is hoped that we will be able to shape them as outstanding leaders through a world class education at IIM Indore.
The candidates will be selected on the basis of overall performance in Aptitude Test, and Personal Interview.
IIM Indore’s vision is to have a dominant presence in every segment of management education. Operationalization of increasing the PGP batch size from 240 to 450 candidates is a step in this direction. We have launched a one- year executive education programme for the premium price segment of the management education market. Academic presence in Mumbai and Dubai is a demonstration of our desire to be globally present and recognized. We have an expanding Ph.D. programme. We have launched a 3-month Faculty Development Programme (FDP) for teachers. We have plans to launch in the near future several specialized programmes in the emerging sectors of the Indian economy.
The proposed five-year integrated programme in management (IPM) is a unique and creative programme to meet the aspirations of young students to become management professionals, change agents and societal leaders.
IPM therefore is a strategic fit in the overall context, vision and mission of IIM, Indore. The five-year integrated programme in management is aimed at students who have passed out class XII / Higher Secondary or equivalent from various schools in India. It is widely believed that our ability to influence the younger students is much greater. It is hoped that we will be able to shape them as outstanding leaders through a world class education at IIM Indore.
The five-year integrated residential programme is a unique opportunity for the Institute to make a contribution. It is also an exciting option for the young boys and girls to charter their profession in the area of management with a wider scholarly academic background in the social sciences setting.
Eligibility criteria for this programme are 60% aggregate marks at Secondary/ X Std/ Equivalent and at Higher Secondary/XII/+2 level/ Equivalent for General and NC-OBC category candidates (55% aggregate marks at Secondary/ X Std/ Equivalent and at Higher Secondary/XII/+2 level/ Equivalent for SC, ST and PWD / DA candidates). All candidates meeting the minimum eligibility mentioned above will be called for Aptitude Test.
Shortlist for Personal Interview would be based on their performance in Aptitude Test. Final selection would be based on their performance in Aptitude Test (AT) and Personal Interview (PI). Government of India reservation norms would be followed while admitting the candidates. Further details about the process is given in “Admission Procedure and Selection Criteria” page.
The Aptitude Test on August 12, 2012 and Personal Interview during September 1-2, 2012 would be held at various centers including Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Indore, Kolkata and Mumbai. We plan to invite all eligible candidates for AT and roughly seven times of the batch size for PI. The classes are scheduled to begin in October 2012.
Candidates’ academic performance will be assessed on continuous basis and all those who meet the minimum requirements of the programme will be promoted to the subsequent year of the study. Those who do not meet the minimum requirements of the programme on yearly/term wise would be advised to leave or repeat the programme. Those candidates who complete all the five years of the study and meet all the academic requirements of the programme will be considered for awarding Integrated Diploma in Management (IDM). The programme requirements will be decided by an academic council/committee of the programme and the same will be shared to the candidates upon their joining in the programme.
Tuition fee for the programme for the first 3 years would be Rs.300,000 per annum and for next two years would be Rs.500,000 per annum (tentative). This fee (is for tuition only) does not include boarding and lodging. The Institute has the right to revise the fee subsequently. You may see the details of fee payment with schedule.
Accommodation would be organized on the campus on a twin-sharing basis for the first 3 years. Single room accommodation would be made available for the 4th and 5th year of the programme on campus.
This academic programme would consist of 15 terms spread over 5 years with 3 terms a year. Each term is for 3 months. The detailed programme design would be available subsequently.
The broad design of the programme would include management education in social sciences setting. Accordingly, 40% of the programme would focus on subjects related to the following:
Mathematics, Statistics, Logic and Computer Science
Introduction to Literature and Political Science
Civilization and History (both national and international)
Exposure to biological sciences
Exposure to languages (one foreign language and one Indian language).
Soft skills: Leadership development, personality development, team work and communication both written and oral
Second module would consist of all functional areas of management like Accounting, Finance, Organizational Behaviour, Decision Science, Operations and Services Management, Marketing, Economics, Information Technology, Communication, Legal Aspects of Business, Ethics, Corporate Governance, Corporate Social Responsibility, Business Strategy, International Business and Entrepreneurship. This would account for 50% of the course design..
The remaining 10% of the programme would focus on international exposure and internship in various social organizations in India.
Faculty Resources: Faculty would be drawn from various sources. They include faculty members of IIM Indore, retired and serving teachers in top rank commerce and science colleges in India; Industry experts who have an inclination and ability to teach; Retired faculty members from central universities and state universities.
Collaboration with foreign Universities/ Colleges: We are actively exploring international participation with Universities/ Colleges based in Europe, US and Canada.
