The Institute of Public Enterprise (IPE) was established in 1964 for the study of issues and policies relating to public enterprises (PEs). S S Khera, ICS, the Cabinet Secretary, Government of India, had conceived the idea of a research institution that would undertake a systematic and sustained study of issues relevant to the formulation of policies towards public enterprises. In the early sixties, when PEs were designed as the principal instrument to serve the social and economic objectives of development, Khera felt a need for an institute which would collect information on PEs, study issues and undertake consultancy and training for PEs.
Dr. V.V. Ramanadham, professor and head of the Department of Commerce, Osmania University, translated Khera's concept into IPE, with support and guidance from Dr. D. S Reddy, Vice-Chancellor, Osmania University as an autonomous, non-profit society.
The institute is in a picturesque greenwood area at Hyderabad in Osmania University campus. Over the last 50 years, the Institute of Public Enterprise has widened the area of its work. Starting with research, the institute soon found itself having undertaking consultancy for PEs and training executives of PEs. IPE became a pioneer in the field of computerization, assisting the state government in formulation of a computerization policy, developing software for PEs and public systems, advising them on hardware choice and on the use of computers as a decision support system. The campus of Institute Of Public Enterprise is shifted to shamirpet in the year 2014.
Management education started in 1980 with the start of a three-year part-time MBA(PE) programme. In 1995, the institute started a two-year full-time Post Graduate Diploma in Business Management (PGDBM). The course is recognized by AICTE and recognized as equivalent to MBA by the Association of Indian Universities (AIU).
