DNA Academy Special Report: DNA National B School Survey

The Indian Institute of Planning and Management (IIPM) has scored consistently high in this year survey. Not only has it retained its place in the overall top ten rankings with an eighth position (advancing one level higher as compared to last year's survey) but it is also topping the entire list when it comes to international exposure. IIPM also features in the top twelve list across the remaining parameters when it comes to curriculum (11th position), intellectual impact (9th position), image of the institute (6th position), placement (11th position), industry interaction (6th position), infrastructure (8th position) and the potential to network (12th position).
IIPM has so far claimed the superiority of its Entrepreneur-ship program neither by the size of its campus, nor by the entry level salary of its pass-outs, but by its qualitatively superior and intellectually stimulating academic program. The IIPM course is a 22 month, 1944 hour course which includes in depth studies of national economic processes and ways to regulate its parameters to achieve higher growth rate of GDP ensuring higher growth of market segments within the national economy as well as higher growth of income of all sections of the people, including those who are below the poverty line.
IIPM's Entrepreneurship program also develops certain entrepreneurial qualities in program participants. These helps to remove aversion to calculated risk taking, imbued with ambition beyond normal career growth. Personal ambition in tune with social vision makes an entrepreneur reach out beyond boundaries again and again. Work remains no work, but hobby. Failures are looked upon as inevitable intermediate stages to success.
The IIPM programme further includes a compulsory specialisation in Marketing- wherein all the 20 plus papers of Marketing are compulsory for all students. Additionally students chose another elective like Finance or H.R. etc. This stems from the firm conviction that IIPM holds that business is marketing.
What perhaps is the most difficult part of the IIPM progaramme to be explained in words is the tremendous change in personality and life on the whole the IIPM course brings about thanks to its special focus on Executive Communication which is a 4 credit per trimester course running throughout the course duration. As a part of this course students typically have to participate compulsorily in more than 40 competitive debates and extempores under the eagle eyes of IIPMs world-class communication faculty members. The end result is a supremely confident and extremely smart personality which can speak from any public platform fearlessly.
IIPM also offers a unique Global Opportunity and Threat Analysis (GOTA) program, through which students are taken abroad for a period of 10-20 days, wherein the students get to attend lecture sessions at leading academic institutions and organisations like World Trade Organisation, United Nations, World Bank, Credit Suisse, Nestle, etc. This allows them to widen their horizon in understanding various forces of globalisation through experiential learning.
Further, under the Global Outreach Program, IIPM invites distinguished faculties from leading global institutions like Harvard, Wharton, Columbia, Chicago, Yale, London School of Economics, Oxford, Cambridge, IMD Lausanne, INSEAD, etc., to come down to India to interact with IIPM students.
The IIPM programme is today regarded as the only course with a wider coverage than MBA courses taught anywhere else in the world because of its integration with National Economic Planning and a compulsory Marketing Specialization making it the most intellectually stimulating course in India. In the light of globalization, IIPM aims to create a new generation of entrepreneurial managers, who can face with confidence emerging challenges of international markets, while remaining committed to remove massive poverty masses within a generation.
