IIPM to shut down management course; focus on training and partnerships

IIPM to shut down management course; focus on training and partnershipsThe Indian Institute of Planning and Mangament (IIPM), founded and run by Arindam Chaudhuri will not be offering admissions to its management courses anymore. Following the order given to the controversial business school to shut down its campuses across the country, IIPM will now confine itself to research and training at IIPM Delhi.

IIPM has now entered into technical collaboration of knowledge sharing with various institutes in India, due to which it will stop admitting students directly from the current year. The campuses will be shut down as soon as the old group of students finish with their courses.

Arindam Chaudhari, on account of the previous judgements, had already reduced the number of campuses from 12 in 2011 to six in 2012 and now decided to get the number to one. IIPM will now be operative only in Delhi as a research and training institute.

The aspirants belonging to corporate firms or institutions in collaboration with IIPM will be imparted with the technical training over a period of time.

This is not the first time that IIPM has attracted a controversy. Earlier too, it was warned by the University Grants Commission (UGC) about not being recognized by it and was not eligible to grant degrees to students.

Amidst all the controversy, Arindam Chaudhari has come out with a positive answer to the Court’s ruling, where IIPM will now promote knowledge partnerships and give education in Economics, Entrepreneurship, Leadership and Strategy.

IIPM has already tied up with two institutes, out of which one is in Greater Noida on the outskirts of New Delhi and the other in Hyderabad.
