Why IIPM courses are superior

IIPM has so far claimed the superiority of its Entrepreneur-ship program neither by the size of its campus, nor by the entry level salary of its pass-outs, but by its qualitatively superior and intellectually stimulating academic program. The IIPM course is a 22 month, 1944 hour course which includes in depth studies of national economic processes and ways to regulate its parameters to achieve higher growth rate of GDP ensuring higher growth of market segments within the national economy as well as higher growth of income of all sections of the people, including those who are below the poverty line.

The importance of including studies in national economic planning processes can be explained with an example of natural science. At one level of knowledge it appeared that the Sun revolves around the Earth. At a higher level of knowledge it was discovered that the Earth rotates around its axis and also revolves around the Sun. Similarly, present Post Graduate course structure concentrating only on market segments by individual profit making units. This fails to explain the potentiality of market expansion through distributive justice. Potentiality of business is always in harmony with growth rate of national economy. That is why business expands much more rapidly in China compared with expansion of business seen in India in the past. Knowledge of national economic planning potentiality will encourage the owners of capital to demand collectively the raising of living standards of the people at the bottom.

IIPM’s Entrepreneurship program is superior as it develops certain entrepreneurial qualities in program participants. These helps to remove aversion to calculated risk taking, imbued with ambition beyond normal career growth. Personal ambition in tune with social vision makes an entrepreneur reach out beyond boundaries again and again. Work remains no work, but hobby. Failures are looked upon as inevitable intermediate stages to success.

The IIPM programme further includes a compulsory specialisation in Marketing- - wherein all the 20 plus papers of Marketing are compulsory for all students. Additionally students chose another elective like Finance or H.R. etc. This stems from the firm conviction that IIPM holds that BUSINESS IS MARKETING. This has also resulted in IIPM bringing out the best selling magazine 4Ps Business & Marketing- which has the same punch line i.e. Business is Marketing.

What perhaps is the most difficult part of the IIPM programme to be explained in words is the tremendous change in personality and life on the whole the IIPM course brings about thanks to its special focus on Executive Communication which is a 4 credit per trimester course running throughout the course duration. As a part of this course students typically have to participate compulsorily in more than 40 competitive debates and extempores under the eagle eyes of IIPMs world-class communication faculty members. The end result is a supremely confident and extremely smart personality which can speak from any public platform fearlessly.

IIPM also offers a unique Global Opportunity and Threat Analysis (GOTA) program, through which students are taken abroad for a period of 10-20 days, wherein the students get to attend lecture sessions at leading academic institutions and organisations like World Trade Organisation, United Nations, World Bank, Credit Suisse, Nestle, etc. This allows them to widen their horizon in understanding various forces of globalisation through experiential learning.

Further, under the Global Outreach Program, IIPM invites distinguished faculties from leading global institutions like Harvard, Wharton, Columbia, Chicago, Yale, London School of Economics, Oxford, Cambridge, IMD Lausanne, INSEAD, etc., to come down to India to interact with IIPM students. All this put together make the IIPM course better than any other course of a similar nature in India.

The 40th year of IIPM, 2013 was a landmark year for IIPM. IIPM won its cases against the AICTE wherein the Honorable High Court of India ruled that Management Education doesn't come under the purview of AICTE. Though IIPM has always maintained that it teaches entrepreneurial education (which was far superior in contents to any mangement programme taught anywhere across the world in terms of course content), yet it gave IIPM the right to teach management programmes directly as well. Thus IIPM launched IIMM, IIPM Institute of Marketing and Management, a new initiative to cater to the mass management market as well with a cost effective programme.

IIPM offers three programmes each at Post Graduate and Under Graduate level.
