Admission to the PGP course of IIM Kashipur is conducted each year through the Common Admission Test (CAT). The PGP course consists of six trimesters spread over the two years. The first year has basic courses which lay the foundation of various management functions. Between the first and second years of courses, students are expected to go through an eight-week summer internship. The second year has elective courses which give students an opportunity to study their specific fields of interest.

The admissions for the first batch of students was completed through its mentor institute IIM Lucknow.

Two batches of students have completed the programme. The convocation ceremony of the first batch was attended by the honorable President of India, Shri. Pranab Mukherjee as the Chief Guest.[5] The 2nd convocation took place on 29 March 2014 and had Mindtree co-founder and CEO, Mr. Subroto Bagchi as the Chief Guest.[6]

Executive Post Graduate Programme in Management (EPGPM)[edit]

This course requires candidates to have a minimum of two years of work experience after graduation. EPGPM provides an opportunity for middle and senior level executives to refresh and upgrade their managerial skills without interrupting their professional activities. The Institute seeks diversity of background and interests, from a wide range of corporations, public institutions and other professional fields. The selection is based on a valid GMAT/CAT score (previous two years) or marks obtained in EMAT (Executive Management Aptitude Test) conducted by IIM Kashipur and the performance of the short-listed candidates in the personal interview. The final merit list is prepared based on CAT/GMAT/EMAT Score, academic performance, work experience and personal interview. The first batch of EPGPM was inducted on 29 June 2013.[7]

Fellow programmes of IIMs are accorded equivalence to Ph.D by Association of Indian Universities (AIU). The objectives of the programme are to reduce the gap between management theory and practices through knowledge creation and dissemination in interdisciplinary areas of management; to encourage cutting edge research in diverse areas of management by addressing the contemporary and future problems and issues relevant to business, government and society and to develop expertise among prospective scholars for careers in management research and teaching and thereby address the shortage of high quality management faculty in the country.[citation needed]

The prospects for a student who has completed the EFPM degree may lie primarily in management teaching, research and consulting.

The total evaluation process for prospective candidates will involve 200 marks. The weightage for the written test part (either through IIM Kashipur administered Research Aptitude Test – RAT or through any of the standard tests like CAT/GMAT/GRE/GATE/UGC-JRF, provided any of these standard tests has been taken within preceding two years period at the time of the application) and the personal interview part will be equal (100 marks each).
