As the Human Resource Development Ministry has invited suggestions on the draft Indian Institute of Management bill, nearly 400 MBA students from IIMs have petitioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi urging that the bill be amended to ensure that the Masters in Business Administration (MBA) degree at IIMs is awarded to one-year courses only and Masters in Business Management (MBM) degree is awarded only to two-year PG programmes.

Students from leading IIMs such as IIM Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Calcutta, Indore and Lucknow, have signed an online petition to Modi and HRD Minister Smriti Irani “asking for changes in the upcoming IIM bill to ensure that the MBA degree at IIMs is awarded to one-year courses and MBM degree is awarded to two-year PG programmes, in sync with the global accreditation awarded to these courses by Association of MBAs.”

Nearly 412 students have already signed the petition.
