“The measure of intelligence is the ability to change”
Prof. Archana Shukla
Director, IIM Lucknow
As the world is finally emerging from the throes of 2019 pandemic and it’s after effects, things are starting to get back on track. In this process, the depths of reinvention that we as a society went through in the way we live, work, research, study, or do business is a moment of reckoning. These turbulent times have taught us that we have to constantly adapt and evolve ourselves in order to stay relevant in this frenetically disruptive world.
IIM Lucknow, since its inception, has always kept this theme of continual improvement in its ambit and aimed for giving to the world forward-thinking and agile leaders. In line with this thought, the International Programme in Management for Executives (IPMX) was conceived. Carrying forward this legacy, we are delighted to introduce you to the brilliant participants of IPMX 15. Our bright and highly driven Class of 2023 consists of a rare combination of students from a variety of industries and functional domains, holding rich and transformative experiences.
At this moment, it is also crucial for us at IIM Lucknow to reflect on our IPMX alumni who’ve made undeniable impact in the society by being change agents and leaders in their respective domains. We are extremely proud of them and we continue to be their trusted partners in their roads less travelled.
With this, I am delighted to welcome you all to the placement season 2022-23.

“Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known”
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.
The global pandemic led to a paradigm shift in the way we deliver education. Online learning became 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 for our previous batch. This was achieved, without compromising on the quality of delivery, as well as learning.
The world now seems to have emerged out of this crisis and we have also bounced back to full time classroom learning. It gives me immense pleasure to introduce to you the 15th batch of IPMX who have passed a rigorous admission process that puts emphasis on selecting the individuals who can inspire those around them, during as well as beyond the program.
After 14 years of fruitful industry partnership, we look forward to another exciting year. I am extremely confident that our students of the class of 2022-2023, like in our earlier batches, would go on to add significant value to the society and organizations.
I am happy to welcome you to the IPMX placement process for the year 2022-23.

IPMX is a confluence of exceptional talent and great pedagogy. The one year full-time program makes no compromise on learning- both academic as well as experiential and shapes you in more ways than one. Today, I can delve into deep conversations with colleagues from Finance to Marketing to Technology; something that would not have been possible without going through the rigour of IPMX. As an alumnus as well as a recruiter from the program, I can promise you that candidates will exceed your expectations.
The process of learning at IPMX for me was transformative, intensely challenging and simply fun. It not only built a comprehensive layer of business knowledge but also provided inter-cohort learning at an unprecedented level. The deeply knowledgeable professors had such a robust grasp on the subjects that it made me appreciate all domains in a business in a much more intimate manner. This tight knit program is very adept in helping you grow and peer-learn from a cohort of expert professionals. Undergoing such a transformative program has helped me build multiple skills that have come handy time and again in making valuable business decisions and solving complex challenges. I’d be remiss if I don’t appreciate the value addition IPMX has brought in my career.
The IPMX programme continues to reinvent itself to meet the desires of both the industry and its students. At IPMX, I was among stellar cohorts and we were supported by an excellent faculty, engaged in both teaching and research. The practical oriented case studies at IPMX still holds me in good stead at resolving opposing views, prioritising objectives and arriving at difficult decisions despite limited data. The programme has instilled in me a strong rational predisposition while facilitating an understanding of global concerns, equipping me for success in the long term.

The intricately designed curriculum and the world-class faculty leaves no stone unturned to transform the students and impart world class practical knowledge that can be applied in real-world scenarios.
IPMX helped me kindle an aptitude to perceive the global business challenges in a holistic sense. The diversity of the student-alumni network, a cross-learning environment, experienced cohort, industry leading faculty, international immersion program, global & entrepreneurial culture and the very beauty of the Noida campus were some of the reasons that motivated me to join this program at IIM-L. It gave me a chance to not only leverage learnings from my previous experience as a marine engineering officer but also helped me learn valuable skills/ pedigree to contribute at the corporate level. This benchmark program caters to the needs of the specific and domain-rich roles in the industry, building proficient leaders along the way.
IPMX has been a rewarding journey . The one year is encapsulated to provide the best of classroom learning and an elevated experiential learning via a very diverse and driven cohort . The international experience puts you on the world map for exploring and learning practical use cases from a different perspective for the same set of work that you learn and do back home .

IPMX is a truly transformative journey, one that not only gives wings to vision, but also shapes that vision using past examples as case studies and discussing alternate possibilities. Yes, it is a rigorous programme and it does take every bit of effort, but it is also full of enriching & exciting experiences that will stay with you for life!

IPMX is a carefully curated programme to repurpose one for new challenges and avenues. It equipped me with skills in areas that were alien to me due to my prior work experience in the Indian Army. Joining this course was one of the best decisions, and I thank my Gurus of IIM Lucknow for being patient with me in my learning process.
