From the academic year 2021, IIM Jammu will be starting the brand new integrated course – 5-Yr Integrated IPM (BBA+MBA) Program. The start of the course was announced via the press conference held at IIM Jammu. With this IIM Jammu becomes a few of the many IIMs to start the IPM programme.
The admission to this programme will be based on the performance of the candidates in the Joint Integrated Program in Management Admission Test to be known as JIPMAT and will be conducted by the renowned NTA, Ministry of Education.
Further information about the Program for academic year 2021-22 will be available on the website shortly.
“The IPM has been designed with the prime objective of preparing the young professionals with full managerial and decision-making capabilities using ultra-modern academic pedagogy of global standards based on the holistic and multidisciplinary curriculum,” said Dr. Nitin Upadhyay, Chairperson IPM, IIM Jammu.
The new program entails a course of 5 years, with eligibility conditions, combining the BBA and MBA courses.
This programme is unique as it will allow the students to get exposure to international teaching and learning quality and standards in Jammu, itself.
The IPM course also has a holistic and multidisciplinary approach as the course itself has been divided into three parts, namely “Foundation, Core and Electives”.
“IIM Jammu was established in 2016 with the flagship program of MBA. In 2020, IIM Jammu also started the Ph.D. program for Management. Now, IIM Jammu plans to expand its learning horizon by starting the 5 Year Integrated Program in Management. It is very needful to prevent the outflow of bright and talented students from the country and provide them a learning environment according to the global standards in India, itself. This has been the prime driving force in designing a course like the 5 Year Integrated Program in Management,” said Prof B S Sahay, Director, IIM Jammu.
