Among 13 IIM’s in India, at present there are only two IIM’s, IIM Indore and IIM Rohtak which offer the five year Integrated Programme in Management or IPM. It was in 2011 when IIM Indore started its first batch of the 5 year management degree and IIM Rohtak will be the second institute which will introduce the 5 year management course in 2020. The student intake for IPM in both the institutes varies.
IIM Indore takes 120 candidates while IIM Rohtak will take 160 for the IPM. This article will also let you know about the eligibility criteria and conditions for admission to both the IIM’s.
The selection process for IPM consists of a two tier system: Phase 1 is an Online Aptitude Test on qualifying which, the candidates are called for Phase 2, which is WAT (Written Ability Test) and Personal Interview. With thousands of students competing nationally for 120 and 160 seats, it is essential to stay focused and have a targeted approach to crack the examination.
