As we know, IIMA has a history of willfully skirting reservation provisions in the doctoral program. But now it is accepted that it is now time to make amends. IIMA is a public institution, and its actions in the PhD program violate the institute’s implicit social compact. Rumours added that the argument that IIMA’s doctoral program is a super-speciality program is just as misleading.
