About FPM Programme:
Fellow Programme in Management (FPM) is a full-time residential doctoral programme of IIMs offered in various specialized areas of research in management related subjects. IIMs see the Fellow Programme as a crucial source of management researchers and faculty resources of top quality both to the academic institutions including IIMs and to the industry, business, government and society. Indian Institute of Management Kozhikode (IIMK) started its FPM in the year 2007-08 with the aim of developing top quality researchers, consultants, management experts and faculty resources in the country.
Why you should seriously consider IIMK's FPM as a career option?
Fellows of IIMs are sought after for teaching positions in management institutions, for top research positions in corporates, and for consultancy and advisory roles. Through its rigorous academic inputs, the Fellowship Programme imparts unique skills and research aptitude required for management teachers and consultants that are not offered by other doctoral programmes. Our doctoral programme incorporates the strengths of similar programmes in other IIMs and also introduces certain innovative features of its own.
