Fellowship Studies

IIM-Calcutta programmes

Indian Institute of Management, Calcutta is inviting applications from candidates with proven academic backgrounds, who have the intellect, interest, and ingenuity to pursue doctoral studies in management sciences and related disciplines.
Last date of receipt of application:  January 24, 2012
Eligibility: An applicant to the Fellow Programme is required to have: either a Masters degree in any discipline with at least 55% marks (or equivalent professional qualification) and a three-year Bachelor’s degree with at least 50% marks in the aggregate; or a first class Bachelor’s degree in Engineering (i.e., with at least 60% marks in the aggregate or an equivalent grade point average). In addition, applicants must have obtained a minimum of 50% marks in the aggregate in either the Secondary or the Higher Secondary Examination of a Board (or equivalent).

Admission test: Of the twelve areas of specialisation in the Fellow Programme , an applicant can apply to at most two areas. (S)he needs to have taken the Common Admission Test (CAT) or, depending on chosen specialisation(s), alternative test(s) in lieu of the CAT.

Application forms are to be downloaded from the IIMC website: http://www.iimcal.ac.in/programs/FPM/. If an applicant is unable to download the Form, (s)he can get the Forms physically collected from: The Fellow Programme Office, IIM Calcutta, Diamond Harbour Road, Kolkata 700104.

Completed application form(s) must be submitted along with an application fee of Rs.300. This fee should be paid by a crossed demand draft for Rs. 300 payable to “Indian Institute of Management Calcutta” on a bank in Kolkata. An SC/ST/OBC applicant need not pay the application fee as long (s)he sends an attested photocopy of his/her SC/ST/OBC certificate.

When applying to two areas of specialisation, an applicant is required to submit two separate application forms, complete in all respects, one for each area of specialisation. However, a single payment of the application fee of Rs. 300 will suffice for each applicant, as long as (s)he submits the two application forms at the same time (e.g., in the same mailing).

For each area of specialisation applied for, two letters of recommendation (in the prescribed format) are required. Blank forms for recommendation letters, and instructions on how to return them, are contained in the application forms.

Certified Documents: Provide attested copies of transcripts of Academic Records/Mark Sheets/ GMAT/GATE/GRE/UGC-JRF test scores. Attestation may be done by a Faculty Member of a College/University/IIM, by a Member of a Legislative Assembly, or by a Gazetted Officer. A “key” to a transcript’s letter grade system should be included wherever necessary.
