IIM IPM Admission Procedure

IIM IPM Admission Procedure


The popularity of the IIM Indore IPM exam is on the rise, and students increasingly are preferring the integrated 5-year program offered by IIM Indore. This program results in a combined MBA degree after 5 years. The degree awarded is the same as the regular MBA or PGDM degree given by IIM Indore, hence it is an advantageous choice for students. One can obtain the same degree without having to write CAT exam.
IIM Indore's IPM is also a popular alternative to CLAT. Students preparing for CLAT are also strongly advised to write this exam, as there is almost no difference in the syllabus or preparation.

Selection Procedure

The candidates are selected on the basis of overall performance in Aptitude Test (AT), Written Ability Test (WAT) & Personal Interview (PI).  The selection process is as follows:

Stage 1: Based on the applications received, candidates satisfying minimum eligibility criteria take Aptitude Test (AT) which is usually conducted across major cities in the country. Last year the exam centers were in the following cities: Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Bhopal, Bhubaneswar, Chandigarh, Chennai, Dehradun, Ghaziabad, Gurgaon, Guwahati, Gwalior, Hyderabad, Indore, Jaipur, Kolkata, Kozhikode, Lucknow, Mumbai, Nagpur, New Delhi, Noida, Patna, Pune, Raipur, Ranchi, Thiruvananthapuram, Varanasi and Visakhapatnam. However, IIM Indore can change the cities/ centers.
