IIM Kozhikode to introduce 60 Woman Only Seats

In response to the decreasing numbers of female applicants for MBA courses in the top business schools of India, IIM Kozhikode is all set to take a new initiative. The institute is planning to introduce 60 seats reserved for only female candidates in the full-time postgraduate programme (PGP) in management.

 IIM Kozhikode to introduce 60 Woman Only Seats The additional seats will be introduced with a supernumerary module and the no seats will be reduced from the current number of seats available in the course. The Additional seats will be added to the current seats and will not affect admissions of other categories. The initiative was taken post witnessing the success of the concept in IITs, which resulted in increased enrolment of female students into the institute this year. For IIT's the Ministry of Human and Resource Development (MHRD) has mandated to increase the enrolment of female candidate's by 20 per cent before 2020 for IIMs no such circular has been given yet.

The Institute on its selection procedure for these extra seats have said that the common selection procedure of female candidate for the supernumerary seats will be same as for the other seats and candidate must have to appear for CAT followed by Interview, however, the exact criteria to fill these seats are still in its formation and development stage.

In the year 2019 IIM Kozhikode has initiated a similar programme and introduced 27% seats for the woman which by the year 2013 has resulted in 54% enrollment of female candidates into the institute. This can be considered as one of the highest rated enrolment in any of the IIMs.

Looking at the numbers of woman enrolled in the top business schools of India the ratio is decreasing and presently only 27% of female candidates are enrolled in various courses of IIM Kozhikode collectively. The situation in other IIMs are not any better and it is being considered that the initiative will help to improve the scenario.
