proposal by Dr. M.K.Chaudhuri to set up the Institute under the name of “Institute for Planning and Administration of National Economy” was forwarded to Pt. Jawahar Lal Nehru, the then Prime Minister and Chairman, Planning Commission, Government of India. A study tour was undertaken by Dr. M.K.Chaudhuri during 1964-65 to acquire first hand knowledge about the working of similar institutions in Europe. A working paper on Regional Planning was circulated under the name of “Indian Institute of Planning” in 1969. The Institute was established in 1973. The founder Director took over as Research Professor and Director after resigning from professorship of Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore. The first residential Full-Time Post Graduate Diploma Programme commenced on 12th August, 1974, with students selected through admission tests-cum-interviews held in Delhi, Calcutta, Bombay and Bangalore. Admission tests-cum-interviews have so far been held in 15 centres, namely, Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Bhopal, Bhubaneshwar, Mumbai, Pune, Calcutta, Chandigarh, Delhi, Guwahati, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Lucknow, Chennai, Patna and Trivandrum.

Aims & Objectives


he Indian Institute of Planning and Management aims at initiating training and research on problems of development that must be solved for

realising planned national objectives. Unfortunately education in India has still remained primarily oriented towards the needs of the private sector and has overlooked the specific requirements of the public sector. We have even failed to do justice to the private sector in as much as we have not succeeded in impressing upon the students the basic framework within which the private sector has to operate in our country. The scope and role of the private sector in our country, in the context of national economic planning, is quite distinct from that of the private sector in the free market economies originally developed through colonial exploitation. Problems of development of the private and the public sectors are, therefore, to be studied and analyzed carefully in the background of national economic planning. Otherwise, we shall not be able to translate the laudable goals of plans into physical realities, however sophisticated the planning models may be. Inspite of the basic differences that exist between the private and the public sector, once the strategy for planned


development has been formulated, both the sectors must draw up their operational plans in a complementary way to realize the planned objectives. Otherwise, we may find them working at cross purposes. The Indian Institute of Planning

Naveen Chamoli ‘95

and Management has set before it the twin tasks: to reorient

education and research towards the needs of both the sectors and to establish the link between the national economic planning and the “To be true, I had no idea about how life after IIPM was going to be, though, at IIPM life was wonderful and full of excitement. We used to work hard, on projects and cases, at times wondering how it was going to benefit us in the future. Then, we went for our summer training and realised that we actually were better than all others around because of our extensive focus on projects and case based discussions with less focus given on lecture oriented teaching. After IIPM, I got placed in one of India’s largest information technology organisations. Interactions there made me realise that the extensive focus on economics had made me intellectually superior to all others around. I couldn’t stick there for long and came back to where I belonged : IIPM. Did my research, shared my experiences with the students while taking a few classes and now I am back in the industry, enjoying giving consulting to some of the top companies in the country”. Sourav Chatterjee (‘92), Xerox development of private enterprises in our country. As an educational institute, we aim at developing a three dimensional personality in our students, viz (1) pursuit of knowledge, (2) commitment to economic, social and cultural upliftment of masses and (3) cultivation of taste for literature, fine arts etc. If we succeed, we shall turnout barefoot leaders and entrepreneurs who are committed to the masses and are so urgently needed by the country.




he faculty comprises of more than 250 permanent members and more than 150 visiting members.

The permanent members of the faculty are mostly IIPM alumni with exceptional academic records and industry experience. Roughly 35% of the permanent faculty at IIPM are women. They are phenomenally committed to the cause of creating future entrepreneurial managers with a difference; Managers who would not only concentrate on profit maximisation but also on welfare maximisation. They divide their time among four complementary activities : research, course development, teaching and consulting. They devote a lot of time to their students Mr. Vasant Sathe During a seminar on : ”Poverty Eradication of Indian Masses”

We need to understand that sustainable growth can be achieved only by committing ourselves to macro level growth strategies that would encompass the bottom 80% of the population and not just the top 20%. This conscientious approach would make a growth rate of 12% per capita per annum possible. In the light of globalization of Indian economy and capitulation of Indian brands, it is imperative for tomorrows leaders to be aware of the above mentioned facts, so that they can face with confidence the emerging global challenges of international markets, while remaining committed to remove massive poverty of Indian masses within a generation... While some wealthy nations enjoy the luxury of material a plenty, the fact remains that more than twice the number of people killed in the 2nd world war die every year of hunger and curable diseases and yet we fail to realise that unrestricted satisfaction of all desires is not conducive to human well being nor is it the way to happiness or even maximum pleasure. When these wealthy nations today talk of being one with rest of the world and of concepts of global village, their talks simply stink of hypocrisy. The time has come for India to lead the way in showing that this carnage can be stopped with the help of determined leadership and long term committed vision... The Indian managers need to develop a strong vision for their companies and most importantly for the people who work for them apart from having a terrific sense of commitment for the country, great motivational skills and leadership qualities. A growth rate of 12% per capita per annum would imply that India can beat U.S.A. in terms of purchasing power parity within the next 25 to 30 years and become economically the strongest country in the world. For this the government of India needs to support the Indian organisations with suitable pro people, pro India policies which would help Indian organisations to become stronger and compete in the world markets successfully... Future leaders must be aware of this and not remain intellectually handicapped. Prof. Arindam Chaudhuri Hony. Dean - Centre for Ecomonic Research & Advanced Studies


not only to help them overcome their professional problems but also to contribute to their personal development. The faculty associated with IIPM maintains an exceptional standard in conducting leading - edge research that is directly related to course development. Every year new dimensions are added to the existing class material. Research has helped IIPM develop its own subjects like “Beyond Principles of Management and Economics” wherein students are taught concepts like survival of the weakest, the law of increasing marginal utility, apart from the age old concepts of survival of the fittest in the market economy and law of diminishing marginal utility etc. IIPM has developed its own model to calculate the contributions of each member of the society in order to create a just and equitable society. Ever since its inception, the faculty focus has been on aspects oriented towards creation of a more happier as well as a growth oriented society. Therefore, all seminars conducted at IIPM are on topics oriented towards growth and well being. The students thus get a chance not only to learn from the faculty but also to discuss and debate the concepts they learn with the decision makers of the economy. The invitees have comprised amongst others, people like Prof. Md. Yunus from Bangladesh, who has been applying welfare aspects of economics to real life situation to single handedly try and change the future of millions of people in his country through splendid visionary entrepreneurship which has resulted into the creation of the internationally acclaimed “Grameen Bank”.

B-School ranking & awards

Inspite of being invited by various magazines, IIPM has constantly tried to stay out of various B-Schools rankings taken out by them. This stems out of the fact that IIPM believes that its course contents are far superior to those of any other institute in the country. IIPM has strong reservations on the methodol-



ogy applied by most of the magazines to rank B-schools. Being an institute totally focussed on quality education and faculty it believes that educational institutes should be jugded primarily on these grounds (most of these B-school rankings give a maximum of only 20% to 30% weightage to the same). However, often magazines take out rankings without IIPMs participation - based upon student perceptions etc. In such rankings, IIPM has invariably been in the top 10 to 15 B-schools in India. In a country with more than 1000 B-schools, this speaks volumes about IIPMs academic standing. Model and ex Miss India Ms. Meyhar Bhasin during the IIPM annual festival

Industr y Interface


IIPM is today a front runner when it comes to Industry Interface between the institute, its faculty, its students and the corporate world. No wonder it was ranked 4th in the Outlook survey, in the Industry Interface section. The entire set of corporate consulting activities are carried out through Planman Consulting - IIPMs strategic alliance partners for corporate activities. Planman Consulting also takes care of the entire range of international alliances, placement activities, media initiatives, marketing, growth & expansion activities of IIPM. Planman today employs more than 200 MBAs working through 10 branches in India, UK & Canada. More than 75% of the consultants at Planman are IIPM graduates. Through Planman, members of IIPM faculty are always engaged in numerous consulting assignments which in turn brings awesome industry exposure into the fourwalls of IIPM classrooms. Students invariably also become a part of a large number of industry consulting projects during their stay at IIPM. Planman further organises executive development programmes, undertakes T&D activities, HR Consulting, Marketing Consulting, Market Research, CEO Search, Event Management, Media Consulting, TV & Film Production in association with IIPM. Established in 1996 with intellectual resourcing from IIPM, it is today Indian’s largest multiinterest Indian multinational management consulting firm. Its clients include every other Fortune 500 Co. as well as leading Indian organisations. CEOs and Presidents of India Inc. attend workshops organised by Planman - IIPM regularly to hone their leadership as well as corporate strategy skills.

Method of Teaching
The Institute uses case study methods (no overemphasis) along with class lectures to encourage active participation of the students in the total process of learning. Trimester Project/Research Project/Project Feasibility Report are essential parts of the curriculum with the aim to acquaint students with practice so that not only do the students have a sound theoretical background, but also have a relevant experience in application of theory to practical situations.



No method is a substitute for a rigid academic schedule. To create an atmosphere of the pressure found in the competitive environment and long hours of work, the average IIPM full-time students have to attend a cumulative of more than 1250 contact hours, in addition to trimester projects (on-the-job training) etc. This is about much more than what is prescribed for M.B.E. programme.

Failure to attend any class results in an automatic deduction of 2 marks per class from the marks awarded in the trimester examination. 100% attendance is rewarded with 5 additional marks. A fine of Rs. 25/- per class (of 45/50 minutes) will be imposed on students, if their attendance is less than 80%. The same will be collected at the time of handing over Attendance Certificate/Final Marksheet/Testimonial.

Academic System



In New Delhi, IIPM has a sprawling eight storied building : Old IIPM Tower & a 40,000 sq. ft. building on 1 acre of land : New IIPM Tower, both in Qutub Institutional Area, the most prestigious institutional area in the country. They are equipped with an airconditioned auditorium, conference room, three computer dromes, a library spread over one whole floor etc. apart from airconditioned classrooms and canteen. Similar IIPM Towers with exceptional facilities are also there in Bandra, Mumbai as well as in Chennai, Pune, Bangalore, Hyderabad & Ahmedabad. Delhi classes are also held in our campus in South Delhi, just 15 minutes from AIIMS, New Delhi. It spreads across more than 5 acres of lush green. It is amazingly beautiful. Needless to say, it is the largest Campus amongst institutes of its kind in Delhi. It has facilities for Billiards, Pool, Mini Golf, Tennis etc. The architecture is from the era bygone, with a Scottish flavour. The castle type buildings, mysteriously located between lush green landscapes and thick woods, provide the ideal setting for academic pursuits. The IIPM Campus in Gurgaon, is our residential campus meant mainly for research activities etc. Unlike other national institutes, our residential campus (which looks like a rural hermitage) has been designed to incorporate the ideal of austere and simple living and to help inculcate non-elitist attitude. Set in the idyllic green surroundings of the countryside, far away from the noise and pollution of the metropolitan city, it is an ideal place for academicians to concentrate on research. It is equipped with a swimming pool apart from facilities for various sports. Research fellows may opt to live in campus hostels. Campus hostel accommodation is also available for participants of short-duration Rural Development Programmes. Faculty Development Programme, Executive Development Programmes etc.


“IIPM’s initiative for students are excellent and very valuable” Niels Christiansen - Director, Nestle S.A.- Vevey, Switzerland (IIPM students visit Nestle headquarters in Vevey every year during their GOTA trips). “IIPM helps create world class experiences for students”, Dr. Piero Morosini - Head Mergers & Acqusitions, IMD, Lausanne (IIPM students have classes in IMD, Lausanne, every year during their GOTA trips)

Residential Accommodation for Students
Students coming from various states can opt for the residential accomodation offered by IIPM. Past experience indicates that students living in small groups of two under the care and supervision of landlords’ families are able to devote more time to studies than students living in large groups in campus hostels. After hectic class hours, students also enjoy relatively quiet family atmosphere during the evenings. The Institute has, therefore, arranged for simple and ordinary rooms scattered throughout the cities where it has its branches, to provide residential accommodation to students. Only such accommodation is available to students who may need it. Female students will be refunded proportionate seat rent whenever their guardians arrange for their accommodation on their own.

IIPM is the only institute in India to have contributed to Indian management and understanding of Indian economy through a #1 best selling book - “Count Your Chickens Before They Hatch”. “The Great Indian Dream” is releasing soon. Concepts like the iconoclastic “Theory ‘i’ Management”, “Happy Capitalism”, “Survival of the Weakest”, “Law of Increasing Marginal Utility” and “The Trickle-Up Theory” originated at IIPM and are taught to students at all the branches of IIPM by Prof. Arindam Chaudhuri himself. To maintain uniformity of academic standards in all its branches, many of IIPMs star professors travel to all the branches of IIPM to take classes.

Award of Testimonials


Convocation/Award of Testimonial/Certificate/Title
IIPM’s main courses are the Two Year Full-Time and Three Year Full-Time programmes in Planning and Entrepreneurship.

The Institute reserves the right not to award title/testimonials to students, who organize strike/demonstration/ragging/ gherao etc. and thereby prove themselves unworthy of entrepreneurial leadership in an organisation, even if they complete the academic programme successfully. Students attending less than 65 percent classes will not be entitled to testimonials. They will be awarded semester marksheets, if they otherwise, qualify for testimonials successfully. Winners of Gold Medals, Prizes, Certificates of Honour etc. will be invited to participate in the convocation. Others will be sent the testimonials by registered post after the convocation.

IIPM Clubs

Students’ council


In order to promote selfadministration and to encourage maximum students participation, while avoiding intergroup rivalry, coordinators for various activities are elected by the students during the first week after joining the institute (on the basis of individual student’s description before the class of his/her interest and cre-

dentials in the past). Coordinator are changed at the end of each semester. Senior students handover the charge to junior students, as soon as they are elected. Any demand by general body of students for change in any matter already incorporated in the Prospectus will be considered as violation of understanding between students and the Institute on the basis of which students are admitted. In all such cases current

programme of the Institute will be declared as cancelled and students will be required to withdraw from the institute without any claim on refund of fees already paid (except caution deposits). A nominee of the Director (preferably from amongst the recipients of Director’s medals) acts as Secretary of Alumni Association. His/her term is usually for one year. The term can however, be extended by the Director.

Fellow Programme

Three Year Integrated Programme


It has been observed that MBA Level education is offered to students of all graduation streams (History, Biology, Geography, Engineering etc.) therefore, making it obvious that MBA education academically, has got nothing to do with graduation. Thus, IIPM pioneered this three year full time programme for students after 10+2 wherein, they do the same course that the post graduate students do in the second and third year of their course. In the first year a bridge course in management is given to them, so that they become more capable of competing with the graduate students in the second and third year of their studies.

In the light of globalization, students entering IIPM have to undergo a study tour to a selected country in Australia, Africa, Asia, America, Europe or China. For the Two Year students GOTA is typically between 8/10 days while for the Three Year students GOTA lasts for about 17/21 days depending upon flight availability etc. Students however can extend this trip on their own expense. IIPM bears the entire cost of this programme for all students. This cost includes cost of air travel (from the nearest international airport) to abroad and back as well as the entire cost of boarding, lodging, food and faculty. Students have to obtain passport and visa for the country of their visit. If they are not given a visa IIPM can not be Students at the UN Head quarters in Geneva during a seminar on held responsible. During the programme the students Globalization & International Security : the role of United Nations are taught a special paper on Global Opportunity and Threat Analysis with assistance from faculty of the country visited, whenever available. The idea is to make the students aware of how a truly global economy works and also to bring a fresh outlook to life conducive to entrepreneurial learning. Students would be sent in study groups of minimum 15. The students should note that they do not have the choice to decide which country to visit. The institute’s faculty members would decide the same. During the course apart from classes students are also taken around the city for sight seeing as well as industry visits.

When all the students come back after their visits to various countries they share their experiences and the knowledge gained from the interactions with the other students of the institute. This creates an intellectually stimulating and exciting environment in the campus and students get a first hand experience of how things work in other countries. During the GOTA visits IIPM has conducted seminars and lectures in association with organisations/institutions like : IMD, Lausanne ; The United Nations ; ILO ; The World Bank ; Geneve Financial Centre ; Credit Suisse ; Nestle ; Insead ; IMI, Europe etc.
Management experts who taught our students during the GOTA (Global Opportunity & Threat Analysis) Programme in GENEVA comment...
“The initiative of IIPM to bring their students all the way to our headquarters in Europe is invaluable in giving students a “real life” feel of the issues facing the corporates and IIPM is to be congratulated on inclusion of this initiative in its course.” Ernest J. Pope, Sr. Vice President (worldwide), Nestle, S.A., Vevey, Switzerland (previously M.D., Nestle, Australia). “I think IIPM’s effort in bringing students to Europe is “Superb”. The more such exchanges take place the more confident people will become... The students also revealed clear signs that they understand a good deal of the subject.” Prof. Guy B. Knapton, International

Trimester Project/Project Feasibility Report Each student has to write a project to justify the award of testimonial/certificate/title. This should show that the student is capable of scientific analysis of a problem and can approach the solution for the same in a systematic manner. The projects must provide sufficient indication that the student is competent to assimilate skills acquired in various disciplines for successful application to solve a complex problem. Normally a student works in an organisation on a practical assignment for about three to nine months. He writes a project report connected with practical assignment. (See also placement service). Projects can also be completed on the basis of research materials available in libraries. Apart from the above there are various other projects and training assignments which are compulsory for all students at IIPM, as will be clear in the following project distribution table.

Aurobindo Chaudhuri was a bright student of IIPMs batch of ‘92. As a part of IIPMs rural development programmes, on 21st October 1994 he had gone to the IIPM campus in Gurgaon to take classes for a batch of rural students. An unfortunate accident during the lunch break took him away from all of us. His spirit of working for a better India lives on through the Great Indian Dream Foundation (GIDF).

Placement Procedure



ach year more than 150 companies come to campus to make presentations and to interview students. For the same purpose IIPM has offices in Delhi as well as in Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai, Kolkata, Pune, Toronto & London. Last year saw a record of more than 200 companies visiting the IIPM campus for placements (see ALUMNI & PLACEMENTS page for further details). All the eligible students who required placements got placed from the campus itself. It has been observed that more than 70% of each class usually accepts offers from companies that recruit on campus. Many students use IIPM resources to conduct networked job searches, targetting smaller companies, entrepreneurial ventures, and not-for-profit organisations. The Institute’s placement service assists eligible students in securing suitable jobs/trimester projects. For this purpose the office keeps effective contacts with firms all over India, maintains and performs liaison work between possible employers and the Institute’s students (student must, however, note that the Institute is a place for serious academic pursuit and not an agency to provide employment). No fee is charged for the service and no binding obligation to find a job/trimester project for any student is accepted by the Institute. Attractive stipends/ scholarships are paid to

students during trimester projects. Depending on the recruitment policy of organisations The proud winner of Nestle students are face painting competition usually absorbed as Junior Executive in appropriate pay scales with allowances, if their performance is found satisfactory during the period of trimester projects. To be eligible for Trimester Project/Placement Service of the Institute a student has to satisfy the following criteria : (a) he/she has to secure an average of 50% marks ; (b) he/she has to obtain 55% marks in oral as well as in written executive communication ; (c) he/she has to pass 90% of the papers examined’ (d) he/she has to clear all fees due to the Institute ; (e) he/she has to attend 80% of all classes. Students failing to quality for placement service/ trimester projects or unsuccessful in obtaining trimester projects have to write project feasibility report based on library research, market research, and surveys. Job & Career Opportunity IIPM Students complete the programme at a relatively younger age (21/23). After about 5/4 years’ experience as Executives, their gross salary compares well with students of the same age (26/27) coming out of other national Institutes, which select mostly engineering graduates, many of them having 2/3 years previous work experience. Students, opting to become entrepreneurs afterwards, are entitled to consultancy service of the Institute at a nominal cost throughout their active life.


E-PAT: The Real Test of Management Aptitude
IIPMs Admission teat E-PAT (Entrepreneurship & Planning Admission Test) is based upon a written test, group discussion and interview. Unlike CAT, IIPM’s admission test E-PAT is based more on parameters pertaining to EQ (Emotional Quotient) and overall personality mapping since it has been globally observed that high IQ often takes a backseat to high EQ when it comes to Entrepreneurship, Management and dealing with human beings. Thus, the total scores of the written test, group discussion and personal interview are compiled together to compose the final score. Success in E-PAT is more likely to make you a better future leader than success in any other examination focused primarily on IQ. E-PAT is conducted throughout India in more than 15 centres.

Rights Reser ved


he Institute was registered as an Educational Institute under Society’s Registration Act 1860. However, the Institute is neither affiliated to any University nor has sought de-jure recognition for its Academic Programmes from any statutory body. Hence, the Institute is an academically independent and self-financed autonomous body. IIPM conducts Two Year/Three Year Programmes in Entrepreneurship. Acceptance/Recognition (de-facto) of Institute’s academic programme is indicated by the list of companies which have so far offered placement/ Summer/Semester projects to IIPM students. The Institute is also listed by Government of India, Ministry of Labour in Career Information Series as well as by private bodies which counsel on educational opportunities (e.g. Career and Competition Times-a Times of India Publication, November, 1991). The Institute is known for its unique programmes in Planning and Entrepreneurship. IIPM conducts its own programme in Planning & Entrepreneurship (a non professional course). Because of inclusion of subjects related to National Economic Planning and our effort to integrate them with various functions of an Entrepreneur, (who has to lead a team of Executives specialized in diverse fields), our two-year programme’s de-jure recognition as equivalent to any degree is superfluous for any judgement on academic standing of the Institute. Students, who are concerned about statutory recognition, need not apply for the programme.

The Institute reserves the right to emphasise this difference in approach and maintain its academic independence. The Institute reserves the right to change the requirement for admission, graduation, content of courses, fees charged or to make any other suitable modification should these be deemed necessary in the interest of the Institute. All disputes are to be settled in Delhi Courts only. The Institute also reserves the right to drop any programme on account of administrative and other constraints. If a course is dropped before commencement of the programme, students will be refunded all fees paid by them. If a course is dropped in the middle of the programme due to circumstances beyond the control of the Institute, students will be refunded (after one year) fees paid in advance for the remaining part of the programme. If a course is however, dropped in the middle of the programme due to students’ agitation, etc. fees paid by the students will not be refunded. The Institute will, however, try to help innocent students to complete interrelated courses (equivalent to atleast 66 credits) through correspondence materials (and, if possible, through occasional contact programmes) in order to avoid disturbance of academic atmosphere by unwanted elements. Any concession achieved from the management under coercion will not be regarded as binding on the Institute.


It is my pleasure and privilege to state that I have been associated with The Indian Institute of Planning and Management (IIPM) since its inception. I have myself grown with the Institute, as a teacher, as a friend and philosopher to Prof. Chaudhuri and various batches of students over years since 1973. Based on my long, association with IIPM, I state that the courses taught at the Institute cover not only regular MBA curriculum, but also additional inputs of Economics with special emphasis on macro level planning and National Economic Management, which have bearing on corporate management... At the current state of environment when we talk about global business management, this additional load on students are thus exposed to a variety of subjects in greater detail. In view of this. I have no hesitation in admitting that the IIPM course is superior to any regular Post Graduate Diploma/Degree Course exclusively focussed on just MBA curriculum.
Dr. M. Adhikari, 6th of March 1995 (when he was Dean, Faculty of Management Studies, University of Delhi).

... the course content of the Planning and Management Programme of The Indian Institute of Planning and Management covers all the subjects taught in MBA course in the Indian Universities. In additional, the course content of IIPM included 16 and above credit courses to integrate the management programme with specialization in National Economic Planning. I have no hesitation to say that IIPM’s two year programme in Planning and Management is superior to standard MBA courses.
Dr. N.R.Chatterjee, 10th of July 1980 (when he was Dean, Faculty of Management Studies, University of Delhi).

...The Indian Institute of Planning and Management covers all the subjects normally taught in MBA course in addition to 31 credits course in Economics... the IIPM programme in Planning and Management is considered superior to standard MBA courses.
Dr. P.K.Jain, 20th of August 1995 (when he was the Head, Department of Management Studies, Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi).

The course content of The Planning and Management Programme of IIPM covers all the subjects normally taught in MBA courses in addition to 32 credit course in Economics to integrate the programme with specialization in National Economic Planning... IIPM programme in Planning and Management may be considered superior to standard MBA courses.

IIPM in Media

Being totally focussed on academics and research, IIPM has constantly made news due to the right reasons. More than one thousand articles on IIPM/ quoting IIPM have come out in the print media and faculty of IIPM have made hundreds of appearances in the electronic media. Every year the Director of IIPM Dr. M. K. Chaudhuri presents budget alternatives before the actual budget is declared. IIPMs original research work has been time and again quoted in various articles. Rarely an article on management education/mangement consulting comes out in the media which does not quote the Dean of IIPM, Prof. Arindam Chaudhuri ! He has been a columnist with various newspapers and magazines including The Hindustan Times apart from regularly contributing for The Times of India as well. He is regularly invited to participate in


various programmes in the electronic media and has been featured in programmes like Movers & Shakers. His views on the budget every year are exclusively telecast on ZEE NEWS on the day before the budget as well as on the day of the budget. Other faculty members of IIPM are also actively quoted in the media both print and electronic. The Times of India in 2001 and The Hindustan Times in 2002 organised seminars exclusively with faculty of IIPM in various cities of India - something that they both had never done with any other management institute before. The Economic Times featured IIPMs research contribution to Indian management “Theory ‘i’ Management” in a front page cover story. Prof. Arindam Chaudhuri has been featured in the cover stories of the sunday supplements of The Hindustan Times as well as The Telegraph apart from being on the cover stories of various other newspapers and magazines as well.

Classes apart... The sense of community at IIPM is very strong. It starts in the section the group of about 60 class mates with whom students spend their first three Trimesters, working together in small study groups, on team projects, and in the class room. But it extends beyond the bounds of the class room as well, in the relationships built through club activities, and other extra curricular activities like the annual festival, rightly named A-maze. The rollicking rock show and the glittering all India fashion show competition too, form a part of it...
