New IIMs To Roll Out Innovative Courses

It is time to think beyond established IIMs, and look at innovative courses being offered by the new IIMs. IIMs at Rohtak, Ranchi, Raipur, Trichy and Udaipur are fast emerging out of the shadows of their older counterparts.

While the flagship PGP programme will continue to be the mainstay of these institutes, the focus will also be on a host of other initiatives developed according to individual competence. These include everything from centers of excellence in areas like energy management, resource management and education management to programmes in areas of social and economic significance like public health, public policy and manufacturing management.
