About IPM

About the Program


  • An effective manager should visualize the change in the context in which he is operating and bring about the change. IPM prepares participants to appreciate and play this role.
  • IPM provides appropriately trained manpower who would explore effective management in sectors other than business. Needless to emphasize, India needs talented managers in several (social, voluntary, non‐commercial) sectors other than the business sector.
  • In order to train such managers who can bring about change, the design and delivery of a holistic management curriculum is a pre‐requisite. The Integrated Programme in Management (IPM) is precisely aimed at such an opportunity.
  • The holistic curriculum with a motivation to prepare managers who can conceive and supervise change would provide an opportunity for the participants to realize their leadership potential.
