We have an extensive International Students Exchange Network. Nearly 40% of our PGP students spend a term at a partner school every year. Those who are not on the Exchange Programme benefit through interaction with a large cohort of overseas students who spend a term here, every year.
Courses while on Exchange
Students who go on exchange in Term V need to take the full course load at their respective universities, taking only postgraduate-level courses that amount to not less than 120 contact hours over the exchange term. You may take credit for a maximum of 30 additional contact hours beyond 120, provided the course is approved by the Office of International Affairs (OIA) at IIMB. Thus, you must earn 12-15 credits while on exchange. PGPBA students can go on exchange to universities/institutes that offer Analytics courses as part of their curriculum at the postgraduate level.
A student not getting a pass grade in a course, while on exchange, will not earn any credit from it.
- Credits for courses, in each partner university, will be released by the OIA.
- Those who fail to earn the required credits from the Exchange Programme will be asked to make up for the deficit by taking additional coursework at IIMB in the sixth term of the same year or in the next academic year, and will not be awarded a degree until they complete the academic requirements. The deficit from the Exchange Programme cannot be more than three credits. Registering for such additional coursework is subject to meeting the requirements of the minimum and maximum credits in a term.
- No absence will be granted to students on the Exchange Programme who leave before the close of the previous term OR arrive late for the following term. Students whose exchange term ends later than the start of the sixth term at IIMB can register, with prior permission, within a maximum of one week from the start of the sixth term. This leeway is available only if their university term or examinations run during the first week of the sixth term. However, even with prior permission, no attendance waiver will be granted for the days missed, and fines for late registration will apply.
