Indian schools need to rethink the concept of a formal placement process says Prof. Ravichandran, Director IIM Indore.
Prof. Ravichandran is very optimistic about the much talked IPM program after Std XIIth. He speaks about teaching management in a social sciences setting. He also says that it is far better to work with younger minds and influence them with the right mix of subjects across various disciplines ranging from study of civilizations to literature combined with traditional management subjects.
He shares his point of view on placements and career opportunities and believes that IIM Indore will be at its peak in 2 years. He also said that while he hopes that students at IIM Indore get the best possible career opportunities, the institution is in the business of imparting education and not in the business of being a placement agency. According to him, the best schools in the world do not have a placement process and Indian schools need to rethink the concept of a formal placement process.
The five-year integrated program in Management (IPM), the first of its kind in India launched by IIM Indore, is a unique and creative program to meet the aspirations of young students to become management professionals, change agents and societal leaders.
IPM is aimed at students who have passed out of class XII/Higher Secondary or equivalent from various schools in India. It is widely believed that our ability to influence younger students is greater. Therefore, IIM Indore's objective is to attract young students, groom and mould them as outstanding leaders through a world class education. IPM, therefore, is a strategic fit in the overall context, vision and mission of IIM Indore.
The IPM, a residential program, is a unique opportunity for the Institute to make a contribution in this important social space. It is also an exciting option for the young boys and girls to charter their profession in the area of management with a wider scholarly academic background in a social sciences setting.
Eligibility criteria for this program requires a minimum of 60% aggregate marks at Secondary/X Standard/Equivalent and at Higher Secondary/XII/+2 level/Equivalent for General and NC-OBC category candidates (55% aggregate marks at Secondary/X Standard/ Equivalent and at Higher Secondary/XII/+2 level/Equivalent for SC, ST and PWD / DA candidates). All candidates meeting the minimum eligibility mentioned above will be called for the Aptitude Test.
The process of finalizing candidates for 2014-19 batch is almost complete and now those who could not get admission for the prestigious program this year will be starting to prepare for ensuing 2015-20 batch.
Miim the leading management institute based at Indore has been assisting candidates seeking admission in IPM through a unique correspondence work since 2012. The course with additional SKYPE facility was proved the biggest support to those candidates, who followed it. Miim was proud to get admitted maximum candidates for IPM for three successive years from 2012. Its correspondence course is ideal for those students, who have either passed 12th standard or equivalent course or doing it.
