In a move to maximising use of available IIM resources and countering faculty shortage in the area of management research, IIM Raipur has tied up with IIM Bangalore on its doctoral programmes and research initiatives.
As part of this association, the IIM Raipur students in doctoral programmes will be studying advanced courses at IIM Bangalore which as a senior research institute is known for its academic rigour, highest quality research over decades.
According to IIM Raipur, students pursuing Fellow Programme in Management (FPM) at IIM Raipur will spend time at IIM Bangalore campus and attend advanced courses in research. The basic courses, however, will be taught at IIM Raipur itself.
Through this initiative, IIM Raipur aims to create new horizons for the institute in the field of research. “This endeavour will provide a unique opportunity to the young and budding scholars to engage in contemporary research in emerging areas and to benefit from the rich resources and collaborative environment at Indian Institute of Management Bangalore,” the institute said.
“The learning and research opportunity at IIM B will provide our students a platform to gain insights into some advanced specialized courses in their areas of research,” the institute added.
According to the institute, the collaboration is also a part of institute’s initiative to counter faculty shortage in management education. “Indian Institute of Management Raipur as a responsible institution has decided to take measurable steps in this direction. It will also help us to increase intake of students in doctoral programs,” the institute said.
Established in the year 2010, the Institute had launched its first Fellowship Program in Management (FPM) in the academic year 2012-2013. The FPM at IIM Raipur is a full-time doctoral programme that offers research scholars opportunities for advanced studies and research in different areas of ‘management’. The Programme aims to prepare research scholars for careers in teaching and research in management studies and in related disciplines.
The institute, in its pursuit of building a research based culture at the campus, is also exploring similar initiative with IIM Calcutta.
