Fellowship Programme 2011 in Indian Institute of Management of Calcutta

About IIM:
The Indian Institute of Management Calcutta (IIMC) was established as the first national institute for Post-Graduate studies and Research in Management by the Government of India in November 1961 in collaboration with Alfred P. Sloan School of Management (MIT), the Government of West Bengal, The Ford Foundation and Indian industry. During its initial years, several prominent faculty formed part of its nucleus, including Paul Samuelson, Jagdish Sheth, J. K. Sengupta, among others.

The Fellow Programme of IIM Calcutta invites applications from candidates with proven academic backgrounds, who have the intellect, interest, and ingenuity to pursue doctoral studies in management sciences and related disciplines. Applicants must possess the ability, motivation, and discipline to sustain themselves in a rigorous doctoral programme for four-to-five years.

An applicant to the Fellow Programme is required to have: EITHER a Master’s 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, applicant 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). A final-year student appearing for the Bachelor’s degree examination in Engineering or Master’s degree examination in any discipline can also apply. Such a candidate, if selected, will be provisionally admitted provided (s)he completes all requirements for obtaining the degree before 30th June, 2011. Admission of the candidate will remain provisional until (s)he produces mark sheets proving that (s)he satisfies the eligibility criteria. The deadline for submitting the final year degree mark sheets is 31st December, 2011.

Admission Tests:
Of the twelve areas of specialization in the Fellow Programme (see table below), an applicant can apply to at most two areas. (S)he needs to have taken the Common Admission Test (CAT) or, depending on chosen specialization(s), alternative test(s) in lieu of the CAT as specified in the following table. Applicant is required to have taken the appropriate test(s) no earlier than 24th January, 2009, and the test score(s) should be valid on 24th January, 2011.

Application Process:
An applicant is required to submit a Fellow Programme (FP) Application Form 2011 for each area of specialization that (s)he applies for. Application forms are to be downloaded from the IIMC website: 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 specialization, an applicant is required to submit two separate application forms, complete in all respects, one for each area of specialization. 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 specialization 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. Applicant must ensure that a submitted Application Form is complete in all respects. Along with the Form, the applicant is required to submit the following “supporting documents”: 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. Research Summaries: Enclose summaries of your published or unpublished research work.

Interview Process:
Once all valid applications are in, a subset of candidates will be short-listed (on the basis of their Admission Test scores) for an interview process. All short-listed candidates will be called for personal interviews at the IIM Calcutta campus during late March/early April 2011. Domestic candidates will be reimbursed actual AC 3-tier return train fare by the shortest route. In a first round, candidates will be interviewed by faculty members in the area(s) of specialization to which the candidates have applied. Those who qualify in the first round will be subsequently interviewed by the faculty members of the Fellow Programme Committee, who will make the final selection decisions.

Deadline: January 24, 2011
