Soon exceedingly regarded Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) will take its understudies straightforwardly into their PhD programs.
As indicated by sources, this thought which was proposed by IIM Bangalore is probably going to get a gesture by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD).
‘A gathering in regards to this was held a week ago by the MHRD and felt that remarkable understudies who have finished four years of graduation with an exceptional CGPA of 8 ought to be specifically admitted to PhD by the IIMs. The span for the course would be four years,’ sources said.
In any case, the choice will be taken in regards to this in the wake of counseling with UGC and AICTE. .
The proposition made by a portion of the IIMs was that B schools ought to be permitted to concede understudies straightforwardly to doctoral projects once they graduate, the way the Indian Institutes of Technology, IITs are permitted to do.
G Raghuram, Director, IIM-Bangalore said to TNIE, ‘We as of now concede such possibility to our individual projects, which are identical to PhD,’ he said. Be that as it may, the IIMB currently can’t give them a PhD degree.
At first, the 20 IIMs should stick to the University Grants Commission, UGC’s standards on the honor of PhD degrees. According to UGC’s guidelines and controls, just hopefuls with a Master’s qualification are qualified to seek after a PhD.
Sources in the HRD say that it is thinking about the endorsement in the wake of taking a gander at the PhD programs offered by some IITs, which are enabled to grant degrees and are likewise foundations of national significance.
It must be noticed that Under the IIM Act, 2017, IIMs too have been permitted to grant degrees.
In any case, the MHRD has likewise noticed that IIT-Delhi, for instance, has endorsed a base day and age of three years for PhD for people having a degree other than a Masters or identical. ‘For understudies with a four-year graduation, the base term would be three years. The length for finishing PhD for those having a Masters certificate is two years so comparable tenets must be trailed by IIMs,’ an authority said.
