Indian Institute of Management Indore (IIM Indore) is the sixth in the family of state- supported management schools and was established in 1996 by Government of India as an autonomous institution of higher learning, governed by Indian Institute of Management Indore Society.
Integrated Programme in Management (IPM) is an innovative, unique and creative programme of IIM Indore to meet the aspirations of young undergraduate students, (who have passed out class XII / Higher Secondary or equivalent from various schools in India), to become management professionals, change agents and societal leaders. The programme is designed to provide intellectual maturity, a holistic education, and lay foundations of leadership qualities in the students so that they can craft a career of their own choice and make a difference to themselves and society.
This is an innovative programme being offered only by IIM Indore to identify and amplify the leadership potential of young men and women in India and prepare them to shoulder challenging managerial and administrative responsibilities in Indian and global societal context. In order to provide a focussed attention to the participants, we have restricted the batch size to 120.
The five year programme would provide an in-depth exposure to all areas of management and support areas like economics, mathematics, statistics, social sciences, biological sciences, history, psychology, languages, literature etc.
As a part of the curriculum, all the students are required to work with a social organization (NGO/CSR) as social internshipat the end of the third year. The objective of social internship is to sensitize students towards the social issues prevailing in the society and to make them understand the need of inclusive growth. The students are expected to apply the knowledge that they have gained in the first three years of the IPM programme through course work and experiential learning, to a real life problem-solving situation.
At the end of the five year rigorous academic experience, the participants would be awarded a Diploma by IIM, Indore viz, Integrated Diploma in Management (IDM). There is no exit option during the programme. In every year participants have to meet the rigorous academic requirements to qualify for promotion to the next year and the award of diploma at the end of the fifth year.
Participants of this programme would have adequate time to pursue a distance education under graduate course of their choice to qualify for a degree. However, the participants have to take their own initiative in terms of registration for such a programme. The fees and other related expenses to fulfil the academic requirements of the chosen programme will have to be borne by them.
If you are enthusiastic about becoming a change leader, willing to look beyond the traditional areas of management and conservative role of managers and provide yourself an opportunity to realize your own leadership potential, we welcome you to seek admission in IPM.
