The Case Study Method
Pioneered by Harvard University, IIMA was the first institution in India to adopt the Case Study Method. Over time, this has transformed into one of its strengths. Since 1967, almost 3,000 cases as well as 500 monographs have been written by faculty members. This method engrosses you in a thought-provoking and interactive process of recognising pertinent issues and utilising practical solutions to overcome organisational and leadership challenges, effectively transitioning between theory and practice in order for you to reach a relevant state of praxis.
IIMs are considered India’s premier national institutes providing quality education in management and research. IIMs primarily offer post graduate, doctoral and executive education programmes. The flagship programme of IIMs is the two-year post-graduate programme. These two-year programmes are residential in nature.

It is a computer-based exam and a candidate has to register and apply following due process to take this exam conducted once a year.
