This initiative would provide an opportunity to enhance managerial and leadership skills for the locals who are forced to move to metropolitan cities to pursue higher education.

Executives serving Indian Army will also be benefited as they will now have access to formal learning of management functions which they can apply in their professional life. Professor Debashis Chatterjee, the Director of IIM Kozhikode said: “IIM Kozhikode stands by its commitment to the nation for embracing the marginalised sections of India’s youth in its quest for excellence. Our footprints in Jammu and Kashmir will pave the way for opening the doors of management education to those who need it the most.”


Executive Post Graduate Program of IIMK is flagship programme for working professionals, which are offered through in-campus classes and Interactive Learning Platform classes conducted during evenings and weekends. IIMK offers this program with technology partner Hughes Education. According to the Chairman of Executive Post Graduate Programs, Professor Atanu Adhikari, this initiative of our Institute is centered on its socially participative academic philosophy; and that’s how great institutions are made, he says.


Last month, IIMK also announced the admission of 54.29% women students in its PGP batch 17 (2013 -15) narrowing the gender divide for the first time in the history of IIMs. IIMK began its unsurpassed journey of significantly contributing to the growing trend of women leaders from 2010 with an intake of 100 women students. There has been a steady rise of this number from 31.5% in 2010 to 35.48% in 2011.
