Renaming Our Educational Programs

Indian Institutes of Management in India used to have one flagship MBA program-except that it was called the PGDM, or Post Graduate Program in Management, and was a Diploma. Now, the new IIM Bill converts that potentially into a degree, along with other programs of the institute.

IIM Indore has a few other programs like the 5 year Integrated Program in Management and a Weekend PG Program for Working Execs. in Mumbai.

These will also get a new name in line with the change in the name of our flagship program.

What's in a name? A lot, actually. The Ph.D. is currently known as the Fellow Program , and will get a more easily recognisable name-the Ph.D- very soon. Makes the graduate more marketable, other things remaining constant. Same is the case with the 5 year Integrated Program in Management which may become MBA (Integrated).

A welcome change for many students.
