The AIM two--year Post Graduate programme is one of the most unique and innovative PGDM programmes in the country. It has introduced courses and programmes which are now being emulated by many leading institutes of the country.
The highlights are
- Trimester system of education
AIM PGDM programme follows the trimester system, which is in line with the system followed in the IIMs like the ones at Ahmedabad, Calcutta or Bangalore. Such a system makes it possible to broaden the course contents and introduce more innovative and contemporary courses.
- Committed and dedicated band of full-time faculty
AIM has a very versatile set of fulltime faculty members, with substantial organisational experi- ence. They get regular opportunities to develop and upgrade themselves, by presenting papers in International Seminars, through interactions with industry personnel and leaders and by attending faculty development programmes. Some Faculty Members have presented paper in International Workshops held abroad.
- Strict adherence to a time-bound Academic Calendar
At the begin-ning of each academic year, each student is given a printed academic calendar where the dates of end term tests, mid term tests, holidays and any other student related activities are clearly specified. Students are required to strictly adhere to the calendar and plan their own schedules accordingly. This ensures course completion in time and make the students disciplined & time bound.
- Unfailing compliance to norms of the All India Council for Techni-cal Education (AICTE)
AIM is very conscious about complying with the AICTE norms, in terms of course content, contact sessions, programme structure and evaluation guidelines.
- Compulsory and comprehensive computer education
The institute has a fully functional Computer Laboratory with LAN and multimedia access. Computer literacy is a must in AIM. In addition, AIM is offering advanced programmes for interested students in Computer Based Man-agement. Students are allowed considerable freedom regarding access to the institutes' computer facilities along with Wi-Fi facilities.
- Strong inputs of case studies and other real life inputs
In line with the trends in the premier management institutes of the world, and keeping the background of the students in mind, AIM ensures an adequate balance between cases, lectures, assignments, field studies and project works for its students.
- Continuous stress on participants' self-development and improvement of their communications abilities
AIM believes that students of the NE require soft skills development so that they can compete with graduates of other leading management institutes. Accordingly, AIM spends considerable time and efforts in developing the communication and presentation skills of its students. The institute also takes help of external organizations in this regard. The students are required to organise events, attend mock interviews etc, so that their individual skills are developed. Written analysis and Communication (WAC) and Executive Effectiveness (EE) are two papers which are conducted round the year to emphasise on the skill requirements of the students.
- Continuous evaluation and feedback
In AIM, evaluation is done on a continuous basis. Apart from end-term examinations, the students are evaluated on the basis of their class performance, presentations, class assignments, quizes, projects etc. The students are given regular feed-back about their performances. Whenever required, necessary counsel-ing is also done.
- Inclusion of human values and ethics, exposure to Yogasana
AIM is one of the first institutes in India where values and ethics have been inte-grated to the learning process on a compulsory basis. The students are required to attend programmes on spirituality and Yoga at Vivekananda Kendra, Guwahati. They also do compulsory social works among the socially deprived section of the society. Ethics and non corporate management is a unique paper of the Institute.
- State-of-the-Art syllabus, which is continuously upgraded
The insti-tute constantly upgrades and modifies its syllabus. The institute interacts with leading management educators and industry leaders to find out industrial requirements and contemporary management trends. On the basis of information garnered, the institute revises its syllabus and teaching inputs to make its students “industry ready” by the time they graduate. Last year, a faculty team of IIM Calcutta renewed the AIM PGDM programme structure. Based on their suggestions, modifications have been made.
- Regular interactions with industry through industrial visits, guest lectures etc
To augment the learning process, the students are taken on industrial visits to local units like Jyothi Laboratories, Emami Ltd, Torsha Machines Ltd, NE Pure Drink Pvt. Ltd., Dharampal Satyapal Ltd, etc at Guwahati, Numaligarh Refinery Ltd at Numaligarh, along with Tata Steel, Tata Motors, Tinplate Industries, JUSCO, etc at Jamshedpur where they interact with field personnel to get realistic input into corporate lives. In addition to the above, the institute organizes a number of visits to the institutions located in and around Guwahati to appraise the students about the functioning of the institutions and development related issues confronting the North eastern region of India. Some of the institutions visited normally are Indian Institute of Bank Management (IIBM), Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Indian Institute of Entrepreneurship (IIE), North Eastern Development and Financial Institution (NEDFi). The institute also gets frequent guest speakers from industry, academia and bureaucracy to talk and interact with the students. Dr. P. Batlivala, ex-President of Motorola Incorporate; Prof. H.K.

- Heavy and continuous workloads with limited number of holidays
One thing, which students may dislike about the AIM, is its work pres-sure. From day one, the students are under pressure. The students are required to follow the academic calendar meticulously. The learning workload is very heavy and students have to come fully prepared to class. Students are expected to study at least four hours everyday. The institute has fewer holidays than others. Classes are often held on holidays.
- Networking with institutions and organizations of repute on global basis
The institute faculty regularly networks with their colleagues in other national and international institutes. International Film Maker; Prof. D. Datta Ray of Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata
