Ranchi, Jan 19
In a world that is becoming increasingly complex, ambiguous, and volatile, every advantage matters. The dynamic field of business demands professionals who can anticipate challenges, continuously innovate, and seize new opportunities. Simultaneously, it needs leaders who embody moral values and compassion for others. Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Ranchi endeavours to give the students the edge they need to succeed both in business and life.
The Integrated Programme in Management (IPM) of IIM Ranchi is a full-time five-year blended course of business studies from undergraduate to postgraduate level (Integrated BBA-MBA). Students will be awarded a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree at the end of the programme, mentioned a press release on Monday. Admission to the programme will be based on SAT exam scores, a written ability test, a personal interview, and overall academic performance at the secondary and the higher secondary levels, added the press release.
Students admitted to this program will get a longer duration to develop their practical leadership and managerial skills. They will be exposed to rigorous coursework within a caring environment that places equal importance on learning and development and student well-being. The curriculum has been deliberately prepared to balance cognitive development with cultural growth by engaging students both in and outside the classroom. The program has been designed to provide a multidisciplinary foundation borrowing from humanities, social sciences, arts and sciences. The cross-disciplinary business core of the program builds on such a foundation, according to the press release.
It comprehensively covers subjects from management, marketing, accounting, finance, economics, information systems, data science, and strategic management. Lectures, classroom discussions, experiential lessons, case analyses, simulations, group projects, internships, and mentorships create a learning environment that is active and immersive. Additionally, the program offers several life-skill courses that focus on their holistic development as professionally and socially responsible individuals. Students will get the opportunity to learn and grow in a premier business school and develop skills that send signals to the marketplace.
