The Executive Fellow Programme in Management (EFPM) at IMI Kolkata has been designed to provide an opportunity to working individuals to equip themselves with powerful knowledge, tools and resources to tackle complicated business challenges of present times. The Programme focuses on preparing scholars for careers in the government, in industry and for careers in teaching and research in management studies and in related disciplines. The EFPM has been designed to effectively spread quality management education among practising managers and researchers, across all levels. The EFPM research scholars of IMI Kolkata are expected to undertake a rigorous multidisciplinary approach to offer original works of theoretical and application-oriented research with far reaching implications.

Duration Of The Programme

The Programme is of four years’ duration. However, this is extendable maximum up to 1 year in exceptional cases, subject to the consideration and approval by the IMI Kolkata research council. It consists of two phases. The first phase of the Programme involves course work for two years followed by a comprehensive examination (CE). The CE based on research scholar’s chosen area of interest will be taken after completion of the course work. The CE serves as a gateway to the dissertation as the means to ensure that research scholars have the background knowledge to do a doctoral dissertation. The second phase requires scholars to work on their thesis. This involves the preparation of thesis proposal, pursuing research on this proposal and finally an examination based on the thesis leading to FPM.

Eligibility Criteria

Minimum 5 years of relevant work experience working as a full–time teaching Academic or in the corporate sector in addition to Master’s Degree with First Class .
