IIM-Rohtak is launching a five-year Integrated Programme in Management this year. According to Dheeraj Sharma, Director, IIM- Rohtak, “It will be a comprehensive programme with participants being awarded a Masters of Management Studies (MMS). But after completing the programme requirement at the end of three years, the student will be awarded a Bachelors in Management Studies (BMS).” The application will be available from Monday.“There is huge interest for the programme, considering that we’ve been receiving around 400 to 500 calls a day, since taking the decision. The candidate can be from any discipline, but should pass the entrance test – which willould be an online test like CAT. This willould be conducted by a professional agency. The online exam is slated for May 17, and May 10 will be the last date for receipt of completed applications.

The test willould be conducted across 20 centres in the country. Post the test, the qualified candidates willould have to appear for an interview. This interview willould be held in 3 – 4 different locations in the country India and the short-listed candidates willould thereafter be admitted for the programme. The course would commence in August and would be a residential one.

We are planning to offer 120 to 160 seats this year.On fee structure, he said “it will be Rs ₹4.10 lakh/ year during the first three years and the last two years, it would be identical to the post graduate programmes offered by any IIM in the country.”
