The seventh batch of Integrated Programme in Management (IPM) began at IIM Indore on August 1, 2017. A total of 121 students registered for the programme. The inaugural ceremony was graced by ShriShivshankar Menon, Former Foreign Secretary. Professor Rishikesha T. Krishnan, Director, IIM Indore and Professor G. Venkat Raman, Chair, IPM were also present on the occasion.


The event began with the lamp lighting ceremony by the guest and a few participants from the new batch. Professor Krishnan welcomed the new batch and noted that it is always exciting to have new students on campus. He said that the new curriculum of IPM is designed in a manner which will help the participants emerge as good leaders and managers. He said that the previous two batches of IPM have graduated and the students are performing well in the corporate sector. ‘The current economic scenario of India is pleasant and I believe it will continue to grow in the coming years. This is a great time to learn and enter the workforce and make significant contribution to the nation’, he concluded.


Professor G. Venkat Raman then gave an overview of the IPM curriculum. He said that the new curriculum includes the ‘Pillars’—Economics, Mathematics, Statistics and Social Sciences along with the ‘Enablers’ namely, Communication, Information System and various Bridge Courses like Business History, Government & Society, Basics of Accounting, etc.; and the ‘Enhancers’—which include language and philosophy, arts, drama, music, sports and yoga as well. He noted that the curriculum will help in excellent overall development of the participants.


This was followed by the Inaugural Address by Shri Shivshankar Menon. He began his talk mentioning that the world today is divided into two categories—one which includes culture, liberal arts, humanities and all the classical subjects like history, geography, etc.; and the modern category which includes hard sciences like physics, chemistry, maths, etc. which focus on hypothesis and scientific methods. ‘However, there is a belief that the people from these two divisions do not understand each other. But great scientists like Aryabhata and Albert Einstein didn’t think so. They were equally efficient at classical subjects—as they were in their own field. Steve Jobs also mentioned calligraphy and design as his passion, and turned out to be one of the most successful business icon’, he said. Having interest in some other field, other than your own, helps you become successful manager in a better manner, Shri Menon addressed the participants while sharing examples of personalities like Vikram Sarabhai and Homi Bhabha.


He encouraged the students to start focusing on something innovative while studying interdisciplinary courses. ‘It is important to integrate both the divisions’ knowledge and learn, and then contribute to the society as a whole’, he concluded. His talk was followed by a Q&A session.
