There have been discussions to increase the number of seats in the Post-Graduate Program (PGP) offered at the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad (IIM-A). A proposal has been sent by the institute to the ministry of human resource development (MHRD) to get approval for the increase in intake.
The premier institute has also asked for funding from the HRD ministry. Currently, the PGP course offered by IIM-A intakes nearly 400 students. The plans of increasing the capacity have been approved by officials of the institute but no further details have been shared.
Ashish Nanda, Director of IIM-A informed that a proposal was sent to the HRD ministry some time ago regarding the same. He also said that currently, they are not focusing on the number and dates but the implementation.
He also added that their primary objective is to increase the intake of the program and ensuring that they have all the resources to accommodate the expansion.
