Top ranking business school Indian Institute of Management-Calcutta (IIM-C) announced a fee hike of Rs 2.7 lakh across its post graduate programme for the academic session 2016. The fee has been increased from 16.3 lakh to 19 lakh for its flagship course.
"Today, the board cleared the new fees of PGP (post-graduate programme) to Rs 19 lakh for academic session beginning from 2016. This has been done to maintain quality and infrastructure for the students," IIMC director Prof Saibal Chatterjee said in a daily newspaper.
While discussing on taking up a research project in collaboration with a IIT, Chidambaram said, "Would IIM-C be interested, perhaps in collaboration with an IIT, in taking up a research project to determine what is the best route for India for success in managing hi-tech manufacturing start-ups?"
About PGP Course:
The diploma in management at the post graduate level has a two-tier structure: it consists of a core curriculum (compulsory credit courses and compulsory non-credit courses), a summer internship (compulsory industry training between first and second year) and elective courses (optional courses in the second year).
The first year includes developing business fundamentals through compulsory courses across the areas of economics, finance, marketing, operations, systems and behavioural sciences. The second year renders more number of electives than any other B-School in India.
