The Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Ahmedabad is currently mulling to increase the student intake in their two-year flagship course Post-Graduate Programme (PGP). The institute is also seeking funds support.
According to information, the top Business School of the country has already sent a proposal to the Minister of Human Resource Development (MHRD) for the same. A meeting will be held with the IIM directors to take a call on expanding the capacity of the PGP course. The current intake of the PGP course at IIM Ahmedabad is around 400 students.
"We sent a proposal a while ago to MHRD to expand capacity of our PG programme with a request for capital support for expansion. Exact numbers and dates are not important at this stage," said Ashish Nanda, IIM Ahmedabad director told TOI, further adding, "It is our desire and willingness to expand the program that matters, provided we have support to build the required physical infrastructure."
The institute has four management programmes on offer:
Post Graduate Programme (PGP)
Post Graduate Programme in Food & AgriBusiness Management (PGP-FABM)
Post Graduate Programme Executive (PGPX)
Fellow Programme in Management (FPM)
For PGP and PGPABM, the institute admits candidates on the basis of CAT 2016 scores along with academic performace, personal interview and written ability test.
