The full-time residential Fellow Programme in Management (FPM) is designed to enhance research capabilities of the participants and prepare them for research, academics, and consulting roles.
The Programme is approved by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), Ministry of HRD, Government of India in 2018.
FPM is a full-time residential programme. The candidate is expected to complete the course work and thesis in 4 years.
The First year of the FPM Programme will commence with Post Graduate Program in Management (PGP), like in IIMs. FPM participants have to complete all the courses taught to PGP participants in the first year. During this period the participants learn basic concepts in the areas of Business Communication, Finance & Accounting, Marketing, Organizational Behaviour, Human Resource Management, Systems, and Operations & Quantitative Techniques. These core courses help the students in building a strong foundation in various functional areas.
Students selected for FPM, having PGDM from CIMP, do not have to undergo the first year classes.
In the second year, participants will be taught courses related to Research Methodology, Managerial Statistics, Systems Approach to Management and General Management along with core area courses. The second year courses prepare FPM participants to conduct research work independently in their area of specialisation. From the third year onwards, the FPM participants start independent research work under the supervision of a Guide and Research Advisory Committee.
