The Indian Institute of Management Indore (often abbreviated as IIM-I) is an autonomous public business school located in Indore, Madhya Pradesh in India. Instituted in 1996, IIM Indore is the sixth addition to the prestigious Indian Institute of Management (IIM) family of management schools.

History[edit]

IIM Indore, which came into existence in 1996, was established as the sixth Indian Institute of Management after IIM Calcutta (1961), IIM Ahmedabad (1963), IIM Bangalore (1972), IIM Lucknow (1984) and IIM Kozhikode (1996).[2] The institute was the youngest among the IIM's until 2008, when IIM Shillong was instituted.

IIM Indore started offering its flagship two-year full-time (residential) Post Graduate Programme in Management (PGP) at Ras al-Khaimah (UAE) in 2011. It is the first IIM to have started operations outside India. This is a crucial step with IIM Indore's Philosophy to transform itself into a truly Global B-School. In 2013, IIM Indore shifted it's Ras-Al-Khaima operations to Dubai.[3][4]

The institute also offers its flagship two-year full-time (non-residential) Post Graduate Programme in Management (PGP) in Mumbai, from 2012.[5] Till date, no IIM had a presence in the financial capital of India (Mumbai).[6][7] [8]

Academics[edit]

IIM Indore offers the following academic programmes -

  • Integrated Programme in Management (IPM) - IIM Indore, a five-year integrated course in management
  • Post Graduate Programme in Management (PGP), a two-year full-time residential programme equivalent to an MBA.[3][5][9]
  • Executive Post-Graduate Programme in Management (EPGP), a one-year full-time residential programme equivalent to an MBA.[10]
  • Post Graduate Programme in Management for Executives (PGPMX), a two-year alternate-weekend programme.[11][12]
  • Fellow Programme in Management (FPM).[13][14]

Options to specialise in various fields such as Finance, Operations, Marketing, Systems etc. are available and students are encouraged to choose a specialisation of their choice.

A five-year Integrated Program in Management, for students passing out from Class XII, was started in 2011.[15] The institute also offers various certificate programmes and Management Development Programmes (MDPs).[16][17]

Like all IIMs, IIM Indore awards diplomas, and not degrees.[18]

Admission[edit]

Admissions to the flagship Post Graduate Programmes in Management (PGP) at Indore, Ras al-Khaimah(UAE) and Mumbai, is through the Common Admission Test (CAT) conducted by the IIMs. Non Resident Indian (NRI) candidates are also eligible to apply and should have scored a minimum GMAT score of 650 to be shortlisted for further evaluations. Admissions to the Executive Post Graduate Programme in Management (EPGP), a programme for executives with a minimum of 5 years work experience, is through the globally accepted GMAT. The candidates are shortlisted on the basis of their GMAT score, which on average has been 700 for the past batches, quality of work experience, extra-curricular record and future managerial potential.[19] The five-year integrated programme in management(IPM) Integrated Programme in Management (IPM) - IIM Indore, the first of its kind in India launched by IIM Indore, is a unique and creative programme to meet the aspirations of young students to become management professionals, change agents and societal leaders.

Foreign Student Exchange Program[edit]

There are over 90 student exchange seats, which means that 20% of the PGP batch can spend an academic term in a foreign university. It is the 3rd highest number of seats across all IIMs. There are over 20 schools with whom IIM Indore has an exchange programme MOU - Germany, France, Belgium, Austria, US, UK, Australia, Malaysia, Philippines. It is one of the few IIMs to have a programme in Latin America (Brazil). On an average 50 students from foreign universities spend a term at IIM Indore.[20]

The Student Exchange Programme ensures that the students are exposed to the latest trends in management across the best business schools in the world. Apart from providing a chance for students to interact and really be a part of some of the world's top universities for a term, the programme also enables the rest of the batch here to benefit from the foreign students who travel here in their place. The Student Exchange Programme Committee (see below under Student Activities) handles the logistics of the programme. The institute had its first student exchange of six students with Ecole de Management de Lyon (EM Lyon), a premier business school based in Lyon, France, in 2005.

The One Year Full Time MBA (EPGP) has a tie-up with the Joseph M Katz Graduate School of Business at the University of Pittsburgh, US, where the entire batch shifts for a five-week module to get a global perspective on management.
