IIM Ahmedabad

The Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) have collectively urged the government to rethink its position on the duration of the management degree programme, The Indian Express has learnt.

In a meeting held between the IIM directors and the higher education secretary this week, the premier business schools broached the possibility of awarding masters degree for the one-year postgraduate course for executives.

As first reported by The Indian Express on March 13, the HRD Ministry, preempting a conflict with UGC Act, had issued an order to all 20 institutes on March 8 stating that the IIMs will have to seek government’s permission for awarding a degree that is “not in accordance with the UGC notification”.
