The Indian Institute of Management in Jammu (IIM-Jammu) announced that they will give admission to students after passing class 12th. It launched a five-year integrated program in management for such students. This decision is taken in order to instil diversity and “look beyond engineers in management classrooms”.

IIM Jammu said that as the world of business is going through a major change in dynamics and there are different expectations from business professionals, business education must be offered in early college education so that all-round development of business professionals can take place.

The institution announced that they will introduce an Integrated Programme in Management (IPM). It is a five-year intensive course and students pursuing it will be offered an MBA degree in the end.

IIM Jammu director, B.S. Sahay said that they will be starting a national entrance test for interested candidates and it will be conducted by the National Testing Agency. IIM Jammu and IIM Bodh Gaya jointly will conduct entrance test through NTA to choose students. He also said that the five-year IPM is crafted in accordance with the national education policy and first three years of this integrated course will offer multidisciplinary learning to students.

The first batch of IPM has 60 seats for students and it will also include a supernumerary quota of 10 seats for females. The entrance exam for this course will be taken on 20 June in 78 cities throughout India.
