Projects

 

PGPX consists of three project components totalling up to 135 sessions. Every student undertakes a faculty- guided Individual Research Project (IRP) on a topic of his or her own choice. The International Immersion Programme offers international exposure as well as an opportunity to consult on an industry-sponsored project within or outside India. Finally, the programme culminates with the two-week Capstone Project which places the students in simulated business environments, providing an opportunity to integrate their learnings and experience for working in large, multidisciplinary teams under tight deadlines.

Individual Research Project

IRP provides students an opportunity to explore their passion while taking advantage of the rich and diverse experience of the IIMA faculty network. Each of these projects results in one of the following:

A

business plan

An industry note

 

A company-specific case study

A business plan on bridging the social divide

International Immersion Programme

The five-week International Immersion Programme (IIP) prepares students to take up challenging assignments relevant to today's globalized business world.

During the first week of IIP, the students attend a custom designed programme at one of five reputed international business schools which helps them understand the macro economic underpinnings of business in that country. This year's students have a choice of attending Amsterdam Business School (Netherlands), Chinese University of Hongkong (China), Columbia Business School (New York), Frankfurt School of Finance and Management (Germany), or Warwick University Business School (UK).

During the next four weeks, each student undertakes a consulting assignment at a sponsoring firm around the host country. Over the past two years, the list of sponsoring firms has grown to include Acumen Fund, Cognizant Solutions, Delta Lloyd, Gridstone Research, IBM, Intel Capital, Kotak International, Microsoft, naukri.com, NCDEX, OLAM, Tech Mahindra, Titan, Unilever, VSNL, Wipro Technologies, and Yes Bank. Some of the projects executed by the first two batches of PGPX were:

Developing strategy and a complete revenue model for a mobile remittance service in the US-Mexico

 

corridor

Feasibility study for an international company to enter Indian markets

 

Developing a framework for a company to evaluate its acquisition successes

Placement Process and Policies

The Placement Process

• Companies are encouraged to visit the campus for the placement

process which includes pre-placement talks and interviews. The final placement period is from December 22, 2008 to March 6,

2009

Unless explicit permission has been provided by the Placement Committee, participants are restricted from approaching companies directly for individual placements. Companies are requested to interact either through a member of the Placement Committee or the designated Relationship Manager

PGPX participants are allowed two confirmed offers through the placement process

PGPX students have substantial work experience and have been inducted through a rigorous selection process. We therefore follow a grade and GMAT score non-disclosure policy

Campus Visit Policy

Companies may visit the Institute before the scheduled placement days to conduct industry talks and discussions. Following guidelines shall be applicable in this context:

Any on-campus activity which is not a part of regular academic curriculum is defined as company-participant interaction. Companies can conduct a maximum of two interactions for PGPX (slot for interaction will be assigned on a first come first served basis)

All campus activities must be scheduled in conjunction with the Relationship Manager, PGPX. Pre-placement talks can be scheduled anytime before the placement window, preferably in September or October, 2008. Alternatively, pre-placement talks can be scheduled prior to the interviews during the placement process

Guest lectures during Confluence (the International Business School festival) or Insight (the National Marketing Fair), and interaction as part of the Forum for Industrial Interaction (FII) do not count as company-participant participation for the purposes of the placement process
