The Faculty Development Programme (FDP) is a four-month, residential programme, specially designed for faculty members of management education and training institutes. The first FDP was offered in 1979. Since then, it has been continuously modified and re-structured to address emerging developmental needs of management educators. The 35th FDP will be conducted from June 10 to September 28, 2013. The FDP Alumni network has 664 members, including 80 anagement teachers from Nepal, Bangladesh, Maldives, Sri Lanka, Bhutan and Ethiopia. These members have been contributing significantly to the improvement of the quality of management education.
What can the participants expect?
The programme simply aims at developing the pedagogical and research skills of the participants. A package of compulsory courses enhances teaching and research capabilities, and a set of elective courses improve the knowledge of the participants in areas of their interest.

“Learn to Teach and Teach to Learn” this is what we have really got from the FDP at IIMA. A clear programme structure, rich content, demanding faculty and ongoing communication with participants is what has made this program an unparalleled experience for each of us. In fact this is what seems to be institutionalised at IIMA in all its programs. The FDP benefits the entire student and teaching community; so I would like to call it not just institution building but also nation building”
