Academic Programs:

Post-Graduate Program in Management (PGP)

The Post-graduate Program in Management is the Institute's flagship educational program preparing young graduates for senior-level positions in industry. This 2-year program lays great emphasis on knowledge assimilation, as opposed to simply imparting it. Towards this it uses a wide variety of pedagogies: lectures, case studies, exercises, role-plays, simulation, video shows and more. The evaluation system is rigorous, comprising quizzes, assignments, mid-term and end-term examinations.

The program also stresses "learning to learn" through requirements of library-based self-study, group work, open-ended discussions and real-life projects.The cluttered program leaves little time for students to ponder on any subject in detail. The students inculcate the spirit of 'Dream-Innovate-Achieve' and imbibe social concern as an integral part of the learning process. The institute distinguishes itself from other IIMs in offering greater freedom to students in their intellectual pursuits. As such, attendance in lectures is not mandatory, as the institute believes that students ought to be offered a choice as regards what they want to learn
