IPMX Chairperson MESSAGE

The pandemic has revealed that the global business environment which was already fast-paced has now become unfamiliar as well. This unprecedented time has increasingly changed the role of leadership in organizations and put it under a spotlight, drawing importance towards transformational leadership and integrated decision making. On this front, our flagship one-year full time MBA program at IIM Lucknow – IPMX,has consistently delivered thought leaders since its inception in 2008.

Over a year into this global pandemic, a phase which caused a paradigm shift in the way we deliver education, online learning has become the panacea for learning and supporting our students’ wellbeing. Despite such challenging times, I am extremely proud of the unflinching and unwavering resolute of our students, faculty and management,which enabled us to seamlessly switch over to the hybrid mode of imparting knowledge. This has been achieved, without compromising on the quality of delivery as well as learning.

It gives me immense pleasure to introduce the 14th batch of IPMX who has passed through a rigorous admission process,which puts emphasis on selecting the individuals who will inspire those around them, during and beyond the program.

After 13 years of fruitful industry partnership, we look forward to another exciting year. I am extremely confident that our students of the class of 2021-2022, like in our earlier batches, will go on to add significant value to the society and organizations.
