IIM Raipur invites applications for admission to

  • Fellow/Doctoral Programme in Management
  • Executive Fellow Programme in Management

IIM Raipur’s doctoral programme aims to admit individuals with exceptional academic background, strong motivation and discipline, and potential to become excellent researchers at international level.

It is expected that research scholars will come from a variety of disciplines ranging from social sciences and humanities to physical sciences and engineering. Applicants are evaluated on their past academic achievements, motivation and preparation for the programme, letters of recommendation, scores on standard tests, and a personal interview with the faculty.

Executive Fellow Program in Management (EFPM) is a unique doctoral programme in management specifically designed for working professionals with more than 7 years of work experience in the industry.

With the rapid expansion of management education in India, it has become inevitable that top business schools cater to the need of the faculty by producing excellent researchers and academicians who have a strong practical experience of the corporate world. Management education will only be powerful and effective if the people with their real life experiences are brought to the academic forefront.

Executive EFPM at IIM Raipur is an attempt in that direction. The Programme is intended to bring industry and academia close to each other. By providing scholarly inputs to those who already have domain knowledge of their discipline, the programme will offer prospects of a full time/part time career within academia or in research positions outside the academia world.

Participants would be awarded the “Executive Fellow in Management of IIM Raipur” on successful completion of the Programme.


Candidates must possess one of the following qualifications to apply for IIM Raipur’s doctoral programme:

Master’s degree/ PGP from IIMs or its equivalent in any discipline, with at least 60 % marks or equivalent grade point average.


Professional qualifications like CA, ICWA or CS with at least 60 % marks or equivalent grade point average.

Those who are appearing for their final year examination in the current academic year may also apply. However, their admission to the programme will be provisional subject to their successful completion of all requirements for obtaining the relevant degree before 30th June, 2019.

*The percentage of marks obtained by the candidate would be calculated based on the practice as followed by the respective University/Institution. In case of grades / CGPA, the conversion to percentage of marks would be based on the procedure as certified by the respective University/ institution.

If any University/institution confirms that there is no scheme for converting CGPA into equivalent marks, the equivalence would be established by dividing the candidate’s CGPA by the maximum possible CGPA, and multiplying the result with 100.
