  Aims & Objectives  
     
 

The IIPM course was conceptualised in 1973 keeping in mind the unfortunate fact thet education in India till then had still remained primarily oriented towards the needs of the private sector and had overlooked the specific requirements of the public sector. We had even failed to do justice to the private sector in as much as we had not succeeded in impressing upon the students the basic framework within which the private sector had to operate in our country. The scope and role of the private sector in our country, in the context of national economic planning, was quite distinct from that of the private sector in the free market economies originally developed through colonial exploitation.

Problems of development of the private and the public sectors were, therefore, to be studied and analyzed carefully in the background of national economic planning. Otherwise, we would not be able to translate the laudable goals of plans into physical realities, however sophisticated the planning models may be.

The Indian Institute of Planning and Management had thus set before it the twin tasks: to reorient education and research towards the needs of both the sectors and to establish the link between the national economic planning and the development of private enterprises in our country.

As an educational institute, IIPM aimed at developing a three dimensional personality in its students, viz (1) pursuit of knowledge, (2) commitment to economic, social and cultural upliftment of masses and (3) cultivation of taste for literature, fine arts etc.

With changing times and near dismantling of the Planning Commission in India, The International Institute of Planning and Management aims to reorient the IIPM course to the new realities of the Indian economic system while remaining committed to the basic philosophy of global humanism. In fact, while unfortunately India abandons principles of National Economic Planning, intellectuals around the world are waking up to inevitable need for International Planning in the search of a more humane and sustainable society as man is becoming increasingly alienated from the society and, violence - both internal and external - is becoming a trademark of the free market fiscal bottom line oriented driven system. Thus the need to re-focus on welfare concepts has actually acquired greater importance today. To make a happier and humane society future entrepreneurs and managers need to understand not just concepts that are taught in traditional B-Schools around the globe but also need to be exposed to concepts of International Planning and Humanitarian Economics which IIPM International aims to impart.

 
     
 

The IIPM International course therefore is not an MBA course although it might be recognised as one. It is far more than what the best B-Schools across the world have ever conceptualised. It’s a programme in entrepreneurship (which helps you become not just a manager but much beyond) with compulsory specialisation in Marketing, Economics and International Planning. In fact the Economics part of the curriculum is by itself at par with a Master’s programme in Economics. Apart from the above specialisations, students are required to choose another extra specialisation of their choice (which could be something like Finance, HR, etc).

The IIPM International course further incorporates World-Class global exposure through the three phase structure that every student undergoes viz. 1) A compulsory global tour of a developed country like Switzerland/Germany/USA etc., that exposes them to the functioning of leading global corporations and institutions. 2) Compulsory exposure to the classes/seminars of globally renowned faculty members of leading B-Schools from all over the world. 3) Constant interaction with students from all over the world who come to study/spend a semester at the Institute.

Having said all that, what really makes the big difference in the lives of students joining the IIPM movement is perhaps the unique Leadership, Personality Development and Mentorship Programme at the Institute. From one to all, every student typically defines it as a life changing experience. The course creates exceptional communicators, orators, public speakers and leaders out of each and every student in the Institute, irrespective of their backgrounds. It is not just one of the key reasons behind the exceptional placements that students of the Institute get, but also gives students a personality which they can be proud of for the rest of their lives.

 
     
 
“We need to understand that sustainable growth can be achieved only by committing ourselves to macro level growth strategies that would encompass the bottom 80% of the population and not just the top 20%. This conscientious approach would make a growth rate of 12% per capita per annum possible. In the light of globalization of Indian economy and capitulation of Indian brands, it is imperative for tomorrows leaders to be aware of the above mentioned facts, so that they can face with confidence the emerging global challenges of international markets, while remaining committed to remove massive poverty of Indian masses within a generation... While some wealthy nations enjoy the luxury of material a plenty, the fact remains that more than twice the number of people killed in the 2nd world war die every year of hunger and curable diseases and yet we fail to realise that unrestricted satisfaction of all desires is not conducive to human well being nor is it the way to happiness or even maximum pleasure. When these wealthy nations today talk of being one with rest of the world and of concepts of global village, their talks simply stink of hypocrisy. The time has come for India to lead the way in showing that this carnage can be stopped with the help of determined leadership and long term committed vision... The Indian managers need to develop a strong vision for their companies and most importantly for the people who work for them apart from having a terrific sense of commitment for the country, great motivational skills and leadership qualities. A growth rate of 12% per capita per annum would imply that India can beat U.S.A. in terms of purchasing power parity within the next 25 to 30 years and become economically the strongest country in the world. For this the government of India needs to support the Indian organisations with suitable pro people, pro India policies which would help Indian organisations to become stronger and compete in the world markets successfully... Future leaders must be aware of this and not remain intellectually handicapped.”
