Kirloskar Institute of Advanced Management Studies is a participative learning institute that functions on the belief that everyone has a potential and worth. Counted amidst the top MBA colleges in Maharashtra and Karnataka, KIAMS boosts state-of-the-art campuses at Pune and Harihar. This year, the institute enters the 16th year of Management Education to train bright young minds in high quality management education that meets the managerial leadership needs of the country. The PGDM is a two-year fully residential Programme in a modern and contemporary learning environment with top-of-the-line facilities.
KIAMS has adopted a scientific and proven approach to management education. While the orientation and core courses, that are common to all students, build a strong base, the institute offers electives and Summer Internships to build in-depth knowledge of advanced skills in chosen elective subjects for entry level proficiency in industry. KIAMS offers 85 courses in the PGDM programme, made up of 31 core courses (including Summer Internship) and 54 elective courses. In addition, seminar courses are offered in topics of contemporary relevance. Believing a student can take charge of her own potential, the institute allows the students in second year the opportunity to customise the programme to meet their personal requirements. With such a wide choice students may wish to focus on a particular area such as finance, marketing or human resource management, or decide on a fairly broad mix of general topics. Students use the electives as an opportunity to develop their ideas and implement them by taking up live projects for companies. This gives them hands-on experience.
KIAMS has strong Industry linkages that it leverages for placements, summer training, MDPs and so on. A strong faculty base and alliance with educators and educational institutions makes KIAMS academically sound and versatile. The portals of KIAMS are open to Graduates (at least a three year bachelor's degree from a recognized university) in any discipline. In fact, KIAMS supports the deserving students with academic strengths and this year is making Spot Offers to applicants who have secured 60% in academics throughout (10th,12th and Graduation) and >=70%ile in CAT/XAT/CMAT. Selection at KIAMS is scientific and takes into account individual capacities, as shares Dr Gopal Iyengar, Director KIAMS, "Each individual has a potential which can find a niche in Management. If you are not the CAT's whiskers in quantitative methods, you can empathise your way to the pinnacle of HR. Translated into action, our selection process looks at the student holistically. If the aspirant reveals some potential that can be deployed in the vast area of management, s/he is welcome to the KIAMS education process."
