Summary: The Integrated Program in Management (IPM) is one of the most successful courses of IIM Indore and seeing that these are the new IIM to launch IPM program and add the course to their curriculum. The IPM course is one of a kind, so most of the students joining the IIM actually aspire to the IPM program. Here we will discuss all the IIMs launching IPM as a course. So read along and get to know where else you can get this course apart from IIM Indore.

The Indian Institute of Management Indore (IIM Indore) was the first institute to launch the Integrated Program in Management (IPM) in 2011. In 2011 this program was the first integrated program launched.

This program allows fresh students who have just passed their 12th grade and are willing to get admission in this 5-year integrated program offered by the IIMs. This will help the students complete their undergraduate and postgraduate studies. The program was unique and encouraging exclusively. Students do not have to wait three years to appear for CAT and can be admitted to IIM right after grade 12.

Following the trend, in 2019, IIM Rohtak followed IIM Indore and adopted the IPM program for their institute.

By adopting the IPM program, IIM Rohtak had given the program much-needed validity and recognition. After IIM Rohtak, the program was further followed by the IIM Ranchi, IIM Bodhgaya, and IIM Jammu. They started this program in 2021. 

This program has been prominent on both sides - the students and the corporates. IIM Indore provides 100% placement to their students; they do not leave a single student without a job after completing the course from their institute. Due to this 100% placement IIM Indore's average figures have increased consistently over the year. 

However, the number of applicants and the demand for this management program have grown even higher.

Is there any new IIM to launch IPM program? Which IIMs are going to start the IPM program? Get the answers below!

Looking at the current scenario of an increasing number of IPM aspirants, this new IIM to launch IPM program and also older ones to increase the number of intakes.

The current seats offered by all the IIMs as of 2023 are as follows: -

  1. IIM Indore - 150 seats
  2. IIM Rohtak - 180 seats
  3. IIM Ranchi - 120 seats 
  4. IIM Jammu - 60 seats
  5. IIM Bodh Gaya - 60 seats

In total, 570 seats have been offered by all the IIMs together.

As you can see, the above seats are of minimal availability in the existing IIM IPMs. Because of this, most IPM aspirants are always looking for the answer to this question: Is any IIM planning to start its integrated program in the future? If so, when?

In this article, you will know which IIMs will start the IPM program soon.

Increase In Number of Seats Available in IPM IIM Indore

As we all know, IIM Indore offers the IPM (Integrated Programme in Management) every year through the IPMAT entrance exam, and this is nothing new. Still, the good news is that IIM Indore is likely to increase its seat intake from the following year, i.e., 2025.

As mentioned above, IIM Indore's current seat intake is 150. However, Dr Siddhartha K Rastogi from IIM Indore said in one of the interviews that the institute is considering increasing its seat intake to 240 starting next year.

This change was to be implemented only this year, but due to some reason, it has been postponed until next year.

Although the IIM Indore has yet to make an official announcement, Professor Rastogi is a credible source - enough to verify the same. 

IIM Lucknow Might Start IPM Next Year

According to the sources, IIM Lucknow will start the integrated management (IPM) program next year. They will announce around 180 seats for the IPM program.

The seat intake announcement and the program will likely happen at its conference (late March.)

One more thing, the information regarding the program and seat intake doesn’t come from the official website and is somewhat uncertain. Although, a recent interview with professor Rastogi confirmed the same. Furthermore, some students of the IPM IIM Rohtak who participated in a competition in IIM Lucknow were also interviewed about the same, strengthening this claim further.

When we get any official notification or announcement from the institute, we will update our post.

Is IIM Bangalore Going To Start The IPM?

Recently, there has been big news or a big rumor among the students about IIM Bangalore. The rumors are that IIM Bangalore also plans to offer an IPM program next year. 

In a recent interview, IIM Bangalore director professor Abhoy K Ojha said the institute is considering introducing new undergraduate and postgraduate programs on its newly constructed campus.

However, in his recent interview, no mention specifically targeted IPM. However, the institute recently announced on its official Twitter handle that it is starting a new 4-year undergraduate program in the liberal arts in 2023. This program is unrelated to IPM (Integrated Program in Management) and has no post-graduation degree.

Thus, as per the reports, we don't think IIM Bangalore will likely start IPM anytime soon. Even if it's in talks, it has yet to bounce. Furthermore, the already announced liberal arts program is set to be offered in 2023, so one should at least not expect them to start IPM any time before that. 

What About Other IIMs?

There is a slight possibility that other IIMs will also follow along and start their own type of IPM program soon. Although to implement this possibility, it will take at least 2 to 3 years to go from the ideation process to implementation. For 2023 aspirants, the best idea is to focus on what’s already announced while keeping hopes for IIM Lucknow as well.

Non-IIMs Starting IPM

After the New Education Policy (NEP) began, many institutes other than IIMs showed interest in the Integrated Programme in Management (IPM). The National Law University, Hyderabad (Nalsar), has become the first institute of national importance to start an IPM program outside the IIMs.

After NALSAR, few more non-IIMs joined integrated with the IIMs to offer IPM program like:

  • NIRMA, Ahmedabad
  • IIFT, Kakinada
  • NFSU, Delhi and Gandhinagar
  • TAPMI, Manipal
  • Krea University's IFMR, Chennai
  • Alliance University, Bangaluru
  • NICMAR University, Pune
  • Masters Union, Gurugram

However, if sources and rumors are to be believed, IIIT Allahabad might be the institute to start IPM programs next year.

Why Have Other IIMs Not Started IPM Yet?

The Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) have their aims and provocations regarding why they have not started the IPM yet. For the old and early established IIMs, it’s more demanding, and they will also have infrastructural issues.

All the IIM campuses are already running at total capacity, and committing to a new program is only possible once and when a satellite campus is opened (like in the case of IIM Bangalore).

Moreover, undergraduate students and postgraduate students have different needs. The former are physically more active, so they require an upgrade in the existing sports facilities, which isn’t possible for the old IIMs owing to the earlier-mentioned issue.

On the contrary, the newer IIMs would want to focus more on fully developing their MBA program before starting other programs. This, again, will take some time.

Conclusion

From all our background information, 2025 aspirants expect to have around 990 IPM seats. This includes 210 seats in IIM Rohtak, 240 in IIM Indore, 120 in IIM Ranchi, 240 in both IIM Jammu & IIM Bodhgaya and 180 (hopefully) in IIM Lucknow.
