Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Ahmedabad has changed its PGDM 2015-17 curriculum by introducing compulsory courses in place of electives to promote and contribute to the vision ‘Make in India’; and to promote and inculcate more Indian entrepreneurship culture among its students. Review Committee at IIMA decided after consulting all stake-holders students, alumni, corporates, faculty at IIMA and other B schools.

IIM Ahmedabad has cut back on traditional programmes like finance, operations and marketing as the strategy to revamp the curriculum of its management programme.

More focus on human resources is proposed to make the PGP programme more innovative to enable the students to open up their thinking capacity.

PGP 2015-17 batch freshers shall have to go for Entrepreneurship programme; Environment sustainability; design thinking; managing global organizations and Government Systems and processes.

This will bring about management expertise to manage problems the indigenous way and will encourage PGP students to focus more on exploring entrepreneurship opportunities instead of moving out of the country.

There will be 2 compulsory courses in the beginning at IIM Ahmedabad. Both of them are the most preferred ones to accelerate the vision of ‘Make in India’ to take shape. The first one is Entrepreneurship and other one is design thinking; these were elective earlier.
