The Institute

IIPM Bengaluru was established in November 1993 by the Ministry of Commerce & Industry (MoC&I), Government of India, as an autonomous educational institute of higher learning. During the initial years, the institute closely worked with the plantation industry and Commodity Boards of India (CBI) for the development of the Agri-plantation sector. IIPM conducted industry need-based short-duration capacity building and training programs for the stakeholders of the Agri-plantation sector that included planters, corporate managers, executive members of planter associations, small and medium entrepreneurs, officials, and scientists of the CBI, Ministries of Government of India, and officials of the State Development departments.

To meet the demand of the fresh graduates for customized academic programs in the Agri-plantation sector, IIPM introduced a 15-month PG program on Agribusiness and Plantation Management in that academic year 2000-2001 for new entrants in the plantation sector, which was later converted into a 24-month AICTE-approved Post Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM) in Agribusiness and Plantations Management (PGDM-ABPM). Since then, it has introduced two other PGDM programs: (a) Food Processing and Business Management (PGDM-FPBM), and (b) Agricultural Exports and Business Management (PGDM-AEBM). The institute also offers Fellow Program in Management (FPM) aimed to develop accomplished and ethical researchers in the field of agribusiness, plantation, food and allied areas.
