Spread over about 111 acres of land, the Indian Institute of Management Kozhikode, is situated on two hillocks in the Kunnamangalam Area of ancient city of Calicut in Kerala. Boasting of one of the most picturesque and oxy-rich campuses in the country, the world class infrastructure includes air-conditioned classrooms, guest care areas and LAN/WAN connectivity which enables every IIMK resident to be exposed to a wholesome experience. Managed by a dedicated regular administrative staff of 66, it is one of the most efficient Institutions in the country, which knows how to keep balance sheet green and keep all the stakeholders happy.

With its roots dating back to 1996, the Indian Institute of Management Kozhikode (IIMK) was the fifth IIM to be established in the country. The first batch of 42 students were admitted in 1997 and the Institute has since grown tremendously over the years with a current batch strength of 384 odd students, making it the fastest growing management school in the country.

IIMK pioneered the Interactive Distance Learning (IDL) Program for working executives in India, started with 300 class contact hrs in 2001-02.The Two year-long Executive Post Graduate Programme in Management is the most rigorous programme available in the country having around 810 class contact hours with Accreditation of AMBA (Association of MBAs).

The institute moved to its new campus in January 2003 and the number of programs increased manifold with this step. The training activity is expected to witness further growth with the latest 64 room executive hostel and the construction of a modern 200 bed management development complex. The Institute today is a leader in Faculty Development Programmes (FDP), conducting the largest number of programmes (18) totalling 20 weeks in 2008-09, and is the major QIP (Quality Improvement Programme) Centre of the All Indian Council of Technical Education, in the field of management education.

IIMK is also one of the few Centres for Development of Digital Libraries in the world and is a country leader. A prominent achievement which comes to the limelight is the establishment of an Incubation Centre for Excellence, in collaboration with the Government of Kerala to help the Scheduled Castes/tribes students overcome their deficiencies in communication, personality etc. Incidentally, IIMK is one of the few management institutes in the country who have filled full quota of SC/ST candidates in its Postgraduate Programme on regular basis with sound track record in job placement. With a highly qualified and experienced faculty, and backed by a large number of committed adjunct and visiting faculty from Industry and other leading management institutes including foreign universities, academics is always a high priority.

The Institute has a strong International Exchange Programme for students and faculty with several leading Management Institutes in EU and ASEAN countries like SDA, Bacconi, Jonkoping, Sweden, Copenhagen Business School, Denmark, ESCAP-EAP, France; University of Queensland, Austria, Victoria University of Wellington and so on. An active member of the Strategic Management Forum, IIMK lays stress on organizing Seminar/Conferences and conducts management programs for teachers. Leading Management Institutions like IIM Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Calcutta, Indore and Lucknow alongwith MDI, Gurgaon, XLRI, Jamshedpur and IIFT, New Delhi join hands to conduct week long faculty development programme on various subjects in the field of Strategic Management.

To begin with, there are no changes in the admission criteria, when compared with last year's criteria

The admission process for the PGP program comprises of following stages.

  • Shortlisting candidates for WAT/GD/PI round.
  • Final Selection of candidates post WAT/GD/PI round

During the first stage, initially a pool of candidates who satisfy the following minimum CAT 2017 percentiles and SSC/HSC percentages are considered.

Among the pool of candidates who meet the above mentioned percentiles, a list of candidates who would be called for attending Written ability test (WAT) and Personal Interview rounds is generated using the following parameters.

Components Maximum Weight

Class XII Marks

Graduation Marks

Work Experience

5.00%

Academic/Gender Diversity Factor

One point to be noted here is that IIM Kozhikode has given 75 marks out of 100 marks to CAT performance of a candidate, while only 25 marks are assigned to the other parameters. This goes on to show that performing well in CAT 2017 would go a long way in securing a WATGD/PI call from this premier B-school.

The following are the weightages that would be considered during the final selection of candidates

Component Maximum Weight

Personal Interview

45.00%

CAT

To conclude, one important observation about this year's selection process is that the total weightage for parameters which are controllable (CAT, WAT and PI) in the final selection stage has been kept at a whopping 95%. This ensures that the applicants, who do not have a good academic profile or work experience can still aspire to join IIM Kozhikode by preparing well for CAT 2017, WAT and PI rounds.
