Integrated Program in Management (IPM full form) is 5-year course that students who have just passed their 12th Class can pursue. It is a dual degree program which has a BBA degree followed by an MBA degree. It is offered by IIM Rohtak, IIM Indore, IIM Ranchi, IIM Jammu, IIM Bodh Gaya and Nirma University, Ahmedabad. In this blog we will look at the perks of admission in an IPM course and why should you go for IPM or IPMAT.
1. EARLY ENTRY TO IIMs |
It is not merely an entry into just any other college, it’s an IIM. As the popular proverb goes, ‘An early bird catches the worm’ the issue with IPM is just the same. It does not merely provide the right perspective and direction but also it helps in getting grounded in the field of management right from the word GO. It is often a challenge for students to make entry into MBA programs while managing their college studies. IPMAT gives them the edge to prepare early and without baggage of college studies on their back.
2. EASY ENTRY
It can be ascertained from data that competition in IPMAT is ten times lesser as compared to the competition in CAT. It provides entry into reputed IIMs like IIM Rohtak and IIM Indore, with far more ease than CAT can ever imagined to be. The high chances of selection and less number of applicants means double advantage to a candidate applying for IPM program in an IIM.
3. BETTER PLACEMENTS
The candidate having spent five years, with rigorous training and in-depth understanding of conepts with better internalisation, is a force to reckon with at placement drives. The additional three years helps in clearing the basics and gaining a stronghold on the advance concepts. Additional time for pursuing projects, internships and research means more CV points. To all this gets added the personality development that five years at an IIM bring about in an individual. This substantial edge over candidates of normal MBA programs means better placement and higher CTC.
4. DIVERSITY OF THOUGHT
Doing a BBA from an IIM not only means an elaborate study of management from scratch but also of other subjects like Psychology and English. The curriculum is diverse and broad. It provides ample options for the proper exploration of one’s interest through the highly efficient IIM faculty.
5. AVAILABILITY OF GUIDANCE AND SUPPORT
The internet is flooded with information about IPM programmes and IPMAT exam. The IPMAT Pattern is slightly different for IIM Indore and IIM Rohtak. The IPMAT syllabus remains same as CAT.
IIM Indore prefers to ask more of Quantitative Aptitude in both objective as well as Subjective form along with Verbal Ability. There are no questions on Logical Reasoning in IIM Indore’s IPMAT. There are 100 questions with there being 4 marks for correct answer and negative 1 mark for a wrong answer. In the subjective portion of Quantitative Aptitude, there is no negative marking.
IIM Rohtak follows the traditional CAT division of the paper in Quantitative Aptitude, Logical Reasoning and Verbal Ability. It is completely in MCQ format with 120 questions having +4 for every right answer and -1 for every wrong answer.
