Indian Institute of Management, Lucknow launched its “Fellowship Programme in Management” in 2000-01. It is a 17 year old program that is designed to develop high quality academicians, researchers and management thinkers. It provides an unique opportunity for inter-disciplinary education and research in management.
The FPM program consists of two components: The coursework exposes scholars to a variety of core and elective MBA as well as Fellow level area-specific courses and provides exhaustive training in research methodology. A team of faculty, chaired by a principal supervisor, supervises the second component of independent research. The program, with its ample financial support, facilitates FPM scholars to present and participate in national and international conferences and doctoral consortiums. In addition, a rich tradition of internal seminars provides a perfect learning platform for FPM scholars.
