Curriculum for 2015 of IIM to change to cater Make in India Initiative

Apr 29, 2015 11:45 IST

    For the upcoming session of 2015-17, the Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Ahmedabad is going to change the curriculum of its Post Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM) programme, so that it can work in tune with the Make in India initiative launched by our Prime Minister Narendra Modi. According to the new curriculum there would not be any elective subjects but compulsory questions for students. This would help boost the inertia of entrepreneurship among the Indian students and infuse the possibility of success of Make In India campaign.

    The institution had established a review committee to make the changes and they have implemented by the same body. The institute as well as the committee has sought advice from all the stakeholders including the current students, faculty members, alumni, firms and faculty of other business schools alike. The final decision was taken in favor of introducing courses which would help promote the Make in India campaign even stronger and discontinuing elective subjects from the new session.

    The move is expected to make students focus more on innovations and motivate them towards entrepreneurship. Programmes concentrating on human resources would take place of the previously operational programmes such as marketing, finance and operations. The changes have also been made in the curriculum to stop students pursuing their graduation from IIMs to go abroad for career opportunities. It would allow them to dig into many facets of problem solving and encourage them to explore better job opportunities in their own country.

    The institute has decided to offer courses in environment sustainability, managing global organisations, design thinking, entrepreneurship programme and government systems and processes. Design thinking and entrepreneurship programmes which were till date electives would now become compulsory form the upcoming session.
