Introduced in 2011 by IIM Indore, the first of its kind in India the Integrated Programme in Management (IPM) is a five year programme.It is a unique and creative programme meant for young students with managerial and leadership aspirations.It is for the first time that a management institute of the repute of IIM Indore is offering a course admitting students who completed their higher secondary examinations. IIM Indore aims to develop competent management professionals and outstanding leaders through this program. It provides an excellent opportunity for young aspirants, who want to pursue a career in management and will help them get a heads up in the field of management much ahead than they could have through the more conventional approach of a masters program. The program will also aid students in overall personality growth and bring about societal awareness.
There are several other reasons why this program excites a student fresh out of school as it provides better training in management – thanks to a wider training horizon and world-class IIM faculty.The brand value of being an IIM graduate alongside the graduation. Much improved employability as compared to traditional graduation options. Relatively easier entrance test as compared to management entrance tests post graduation where the number of applicants is much higher. Comparing it with the conventional degrees, it saves the student time of one year as it gets completed in the matter of five years. Better placements – an IPM graduate gets empowered with an average salary package of something between 15-20 lakhs.
