IIM looks forward to Supernumerary seats for attracting foreign students

After the pandemic hit the world, while every sector is going through a rejuvenating and reopening phase, the education sector is all set to sail the same boat; academicians believe enrolling a higher number of international students can help improvise Indian B-schools performance in terms of global rankings as this initiative will bring more emphasis on things like Internationalization, foreign faculty, global lookout and students.
India has not succeeded yet to be figured among top global places for study abroad. It has always been a matter of challenge to attract international students to Indian institutions for education. As a solution to this challenge, few of the centers of the Indian Institute of Management (IIMs) have come up with redundant seats in many of the courses especially for foreign student’s admissions. Concerning which recently, IIM Kozhikode announced 50 supernumerary seats for international students for their three full-time MBA programs: Post Graduate Program (PGP) MBA (20 seats), PGP in Finance (20 seats) and PGP in Liberal Studies and Management (10 seats). IIM Ahmedabad was among the first few institutes to launch supernumerary seats in two-year MBA courses.
