The Fellow Programme in Management (FPM) is the doctoral programme of IIMA. FPM admits students who have a strong academic background, are highly motivated and who have the intellectual curiosity to undertake original research. The doctoral programme prepares students for a career in academia or research positions in industry.

Candidates can apply to the following Areas of high levels of specialization: (1) Business Policy, (2) Economics, (3) Finance & Accounting, (4) Food & Agribusiness, (5) Human Resource Management, (6) Information Systems, (7) Innovation and Management in Education, (8) Marketing, (9) Organizational Behaviour, (10) Production and Quantitative Methods, and (11) Public Systems. Students spend generally a little over four years that includes two years of rigorous course work. From the First term onwards students take advanced doctoral level courses in the Area of high levels of specialization along with some recommended Post Graduate Programme (PGP) courses which provides a general management overview and develop basic skills for analyzing managerial problems. After completing the course work, students have to pass an Area Comprehensive Examination to demonstrate that they have reached a level of proficiency in the Area of high levels of specialization. Subsequently, students work on their doctoral dissertations. These dissertations are expected to make original contributions to an Area of management or to one of management's source disciplines.

Students admitted to the programme receive a comprehensive fellowship that covers all costs and in addition provides a modest living allowance. IIMA has excellent facilities in computing, library, and faculty resources. IIMA faculty members publish actively in scholarly journals and consult with industry and government within the country and outside. Case writing and related research are actively pursued by faculty and students.
