The Indian Institute of Management Bangalore offers five long-duration programmes that involve a detailed, stage-wise Admissions Process:
Post-Graduate Programme in Management (PGP)
The world is changing rapidly, and managers of today have to be in tune with current trends. IIMB constantly reinvents itself in order to find the most suitable candidates. What does it take to make it to the PGP course at IIM Bangalore? Firstly, aspirants prepare to compete head-on against 300,000-odd candidates from all across India who apply for the Common Admission Test (CAT). Then, face the grueling 2-3 hour exam, acknowledged to be the most competitive test used for admissions to B-schools anywhere in the world. Once they make it into the chosen few who get called for the interview, they prepare to face panels comprising some of the best management faculty in India. The evaluation consisting of a rigorous all-round process of group discussions and interviews unerringly measures potential, personality, motivation and goal-orientation. The 350-odd students remaining in the fray are truly worthy of wearing the IIM Bangalore badge with honour. IIMB is thus a melting-pot of the crème-de-la-crème of students from all parts of India, and some from overseas. Our students bring with them diverse educational profiles, work experience and cultures. Though linguistically different, during the stint at IIMB, our students learn to speak the one language of management.
The two-year PGP, leading up to a Post Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM) is the flagship programme of IIM Bangalore. It is designed to equip students with the skills and capabilities that will enable them to reach responsible global positions in management. The PGP revolves around the principle that world-class business leaders are not mass-produced; they are nurtured and developed with personalized care and attention, in small work groups and teams, and in a practical, application-oriented, user-friendly environment.
