Dear Viewer,

As you begin gathering details and updates of  Institute of Public Enterprise (IPE) through this website, you would be traversing through its journey of 55 years of the past and also come across the pulsating present and our ongoing efforts to achieve the vision set for IPE.

You would note that IPE is a legacy by itself. As a non-profit educational society established in 1964, IPE is committed to Education, Training, Research and Consultancy for business enterprises in the public and private sector.

Every milestone that you would notice is the result of our constant engagement and devotion to imparting quality management education that greatly draws inspiration from our research, experience in consulting and the link with the industry through management development programmes.

Our foray into management education began in 1981 with the commencement of a 3-year part time MBA (PE) programme for practising managers. The full time management education program started in 1995. Today, the Institute has well defined and carefully structured programmes in PGDM, PGDM-RM, PGDM- BIF, PGDM-IB, PGDM- HRM and Exe. PGDM. These programmes are not only AICTE recognized, but also have accreditations from the Association of Indian Universities (AIU) and have international SAQS recognition.

NBA for accreditation has also been obtained for select programmes. IPE’s achievements have been well noted by the Ministry of Human Resource Development in its National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) 2016 both at the state and the national levels. In the coming years, IPE would move up to obtain the accreditation from the European Foundation of Management (EFMD), Brussels. While IPE is adjudged as one of the top thirty best B-Schools in India, our aspirations to scale a higher footing (joining the bend of prominent B-Schools in Asia and around the globe) keep pushing the limits. IPE has distinguished itself in terms of governance. Shri K Madhava Rao, IAS (Retd), former Chief Secretary, Govt of AP, Director, Central Board of Reserve Bank of India and Member of Board for Financial Supervision of RBI is the President of the Institute.


With a strong faculty contingent who bring research expertise and industry experience in an ideal mix, IPE has carved a niche for itself in systematic and sustained study of issues relevant to the formulation implementation, review, monitoring and assessment of policies and programmes concerning public enterprises. IPE is recognized as a ‘Centre of Excellence’ for doctoral studies by the Indian Council of Social Science Research (ICSSR), Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India.

It has a strong research wing with a number of Ph.D. research scholars, sponsored both by ICSSR and IPE, working on topics of current interest. With eight centers of research established for research in thrust areas, there are also in-house research journals published by the Institute and by reputed publishers.

The Institute has conducted nearly 100 programs for IAS and IFS cadre covering more than 1600 civil servants. In addition, over 1000 Management Development Programmes have been organized for training more than 50,000 practising executives till now, and the training wing is active in enhancing our linkages and adding to our stakeholder base. We invite you to take a web tour of our plethora of activities to know more on our activities and updates in admissions, education programmes, research, training, consultancy, state-of the art infrastructure, library, hostels, student life, wide ranging linkages and many more! We also invite your feedback and look forward to constant interaction.
