The students will now be required to spend duration of their term in villages as a part of their course and will also have to participate in compulsory internship with NGO's. IIM-K is planning to remove 10% of its standard content and replace it with subjects with inculcates out-of-box thinking in students. The institute is also planning to integrate different specializations such as marketing, operations and human resources so that when a student enters into a corporate sector, they know how to integrate different roles to accomplish a task.
From industries point of view these changes in the syllabus are only superficial and will not be able to serve the problems of Indian Management Institutes. As per the senior executives, the top B-Schools in India such as IIM's are not synchronized with the Indian corporate sector and lack good quality research works.
