IIM Tiruchirapalli (IIMT) has plans to open a new campus in Chennai to launch its Executive Programmes and pursue other institutional activities like placements and admissions.


A new building has been acquired in Guindy, which is located in the South-Western part of Chennai and is the gateway to the city from the southern parts of Tamil Nadu and south-western areas of Chennai.


Starting from August, the new programme will have an intake of 60 students. The programme will be aimed at working executives and the classes will be held in the evenings (6.00-9.00 pm) during weekdays and on weekends.


IIM Trichy, the eleventh IIM in the country, started its operation a year ago. The Chennai campus of IIM Tiruchirappalli will offer an opportunity to pursue professional education to those executives who cannot afford to quit their jobs. It would be a three year programme titled as Post Graduate Diploma in Business Management (PGDBM) on the lines of IIM Tiruchirappallis flagship Post Graduate Programme (PGP), said Director Dr. P Y Agnihotri while speaking at the inaugural ceremony of the second batch of Post Graduate Programme in Management (2012-14) and the first batch of Fellowship Programme in Management on June 13.


The institute will soon announce important dates and criteria for selection. The entire fee for the programme is expected to be around Rs 10 lakhs.
