Indian Institute of Management Tiruchirappalli IIM

Course Details

Course Description

The programme comprises two types of courses – Core courses and Electives.

Core courses are compulsory and offered in the first five terms.
Electives are courses chosen by the students and these are offered in the next four terms.

A minimum of 10 students need to register for an elective to be offered. A student can register for a maximum of five electives in a term, subject to feasibility. IIMT may not allow a student to register for an elective wherever not feasible.


Students will be provided with outlines of courses that they have registered for. The course outlines may be made available in printed form and / or posted on the intranet / emailed. Every course outline provided to students will cover the following:

Objectives of the course
Pedagogy to be adopted
Pre-requisites if any (in case of elective courses)
Restrictions if any (in case of elective courses)
Session wise details of topics, required readings, additional readings and assignments
Scheme of evaluation and weightages


IIMT uses the concept of credit to define the weightage of a course in the curriculum. Courses are listed as one, two or three credit courses depending on the indicated workload for each course. The generally accepted thumb rule is that a three credit course involves about 100 hours of work, about 30% in the class room and the balance outside the class-in preparation and assignments. One and two credit courses would have a proportionately lesser workload. During the first five terms, a student will be required to do 51 credits of Core courses and 45 credits of Elective courses in the next four terms.


During the last three terms, all PGPBM students are required to work on an assignment in an organization for a minimum period of 12 weeks. Students are encouraged to take up specific assignments within their own work organizations. The PGPBM Committee will assign a Faculty Mentor for every student. The project will be evaluated by a panel constituted by the PGPBM Committee, and a "Satisfactory" rating on the evaluation is required to complete the programme. The Student will also be required to submit a written report to the PGPBM Office. If a student does not successfully complete the 12 week Industry Project, he/she will be given another chance to redo the project. The Award of the Diploma will be contingent upon the student successfully completing the requirements of the Project.


The evaluation procedure for PGPBM involves:

Course-wise evaluation
Overall assessment in the first five terms of PGPBM
Qualitative assessment of Industry Project (Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory Report)
Overall assessment in the entire PGPBM programme
The evaluation procedure will be similar to the PGP programme


From Terms 6 to 9, PGPBM students are required to take up 15 elective courses. The Institute would offer a varied range of electives from all areas. Students are free to take any elective course provided they meet the minimum subscription criteria that is set by the PGPBM Office. It is not mandatory to take up electives in one or two areas only. The Post Graduate Diploma in Business Management that the student would receive on successful completion of the programme, will not mention any specialization. However, the Grade Sheet that the student receives will list all the electives undertaken by the students along with their grades.

A bouquet of 50 to 60 electives are offered to PGPBM. The final list of electives that will get floated will depend on requirements such as minimum subscription criteria, and scheduling constraints. For instance, from a list of 47 electives that were floated for PGPBM First batch, 31 electives will be finally offered, based on student interests. The number and nature of the electives would vary from batch to batch depending on student preferences.
