Course Structure

CIMP is a B-School with a difference. Its course curriculum and pedagogy have been shaped on the lines of leading management institutes like IIMs. The courses are developed by committees consisting of reputed academicians from premier institutes like IITs and IIMs, and teaching materials used in the courses are sourced from Harvard Business School, IIM Ahmedabad, and other leading national and international B-Schools. The core curriculum of PGDM focuses on developing essential skills and knowledge required for managerial effectiveness. Following the core courses in the first year, the programme offers a pool of electives in the second year in various functional areas of management such as marketing, finance, human resources, operations, and information technology (IT). A student can distribute his/her choice of electives across one or more of the functional areas, subject to completion of the minimum number of credits required for the award of PGDM.

Several research centres have been established at CIMP to focus on various issues of development in Bihar and India. Centre for Research in Emerging Markets, Centre for South Asian Studies, Centre for Public Policy are some of the research centres currently operating at the Institute. CIMP strives to develop competent, empathetic, ethically oriented, and socially responsible managers to serve the industry, the government, and the social sector.
