The course is unique in another way.
Inspite of it being of 1 yr duration, it has full emphasis on experiential learning. There are 2 industrial tours arranged as a part of course requirement. One gets to know the field situations both in INDIA and JAPAN. The course also has a compulsory 8 week summer internship, unlike any other 1 yr course. :angel:

Another important factor for the next year PGPEX VLM batch is their alignment with regular PGP course timing, starting in April etc at IIM Calcutta.

This will go a long way in better summer internships and extraordinary job opportunities. This year there were some 110 companies on campus...

The good part is that you get the best of worlds, IIM Management prowess and IIT grounding in latest technology, Supply Chain Concepts etc.....its been a good ride for the last year batch and my batch too. All from Tier I management school in India... cannot ask for more.

More over the faculty comes from Japan etc and the students get to see best of companies like Toyota, Honda, Sharp etc at Japan. Thats perhaps one of the biggest benefits and Differentiators.

Another factor which has been a big motivator in my case has been the Cost benefit part.... the course costs you around 9 lakhs overall, including everything... and you end up with at par and better jobs that any other PGPEX....where you will end up spending 20L plus...
