The IIPM fellowship programs endeavour to support research in various management areas through sponsored support of research associates who are high academic achievers and have relevant professional experience. While the fellowship program is a full time residential program that might span a period between three to six years of research study, IIPM's Executive Fellowship Program is focused on working executives with phenomenally high research orientations.
Successful completion of the fellowship programme leads to the award of the title of Fellow of The Indian Institute of Planning and Management. In the first phase of about two years, students have to study prescribed courses. After passing examinations in these courses, students are admitted to the candidacy of the fellowship and may use the title of Associate Fellow*. In the second phase of about 2 years a student writes a thesis of doctoral standard.
Research Fellowships of Rs. 15000/- to Rs. 25000/- per month are offered to participants of the fellowship programme.
