The full time Fellow Programme in Management (FPM) at IMI Kolkata has been designed to cater to the scholarly needs of the faculty members, researchers and executives willing to pursue rigorous research work at doctoral level on a full time basis. The FPM programme is aimed at giving prospective scholars an academic space to challenge the conventional wisdom and encourage them to extend horizons of current thought into a new realm of knowledge and understanding. The FPM 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.

IMI Kolkata offers ample opportunities for advanced study and research. The primary focus of the programme is to prepare qualified candidates for academic careers in research, teaching and consultancy. The programme includes intensive formal courses as well as individually pursued self- study or seminar courses on special topics. The research scholars are expected to work closely with the Institute’s well-known faculty, both inside and outside the classroom.
