It imparts learning that transcends boundaries of time, function, industry and culture.
To get the best out of the curriculum, a student besides an open mind needs to be regular and present in the sessions not only physically but also mentally. Prior preparation and active participation is a prerequisite for all courses.
The programme consists of: The core programme in the first year and the elective programme in the second year. The core programme focuses on an integrated curriculum that helps the students to understand business in a broad context. Team teaching and use of contemporary examples (case studies) helps students to develop both fundamental business skills and the ability to draw connections and develop creative solutions. Some of the courses offered in the first year are Understanding Organizations, Basics of Accounting, Customer, Competitor, Negotiations, Innovator, Managing Groups & teams and State & Society.
Following the first year programme, students undertake summer training project with a corporate for a period of six to eight weeks. The Summer Internship is a powerful source of practical managerial insights, validation of management concepts, and valuable market knowledge.
In the second year of the programme, IILM offers students a choice of electives. We are offering 30-35 courses covering areas of Marketing, Finance, Human Resources, Economics and Strategy, Operations and IT. In addition students could take selected courses from IILM’s Advanced Management Programme provided they meet the eligibility criteria.
Students are required to choose minimum of 10 courses. Depending on their time and willingness, they can opt to take more. Students are encouraged to select courses that make their profiles richer and give them a broader view of management.
IILM does not qualify the elective offering as a "Major" or a "Minor". Conventionally 4-5 courses in an area qualify for a "Major" and 2-3 courses qualify for a "Minor".
