Institute of Public Enterprise


IPE At a Glance
The Institute of Public Enterprise (IPE) was established in 1964 for the study of issues and policies relating to public enterprises (PEs). Shri.S.S Khera, ICS, the then Cabinet Secretary, Government of India, had conceived the idea of a research institution that would undertake a systematic and sustained study of issues relevant to the formulation of policies towards public enterprises. In the early sixties, when PEs were designed as the principal instrument to serve the social and economic objectives of development, Shri. Khera felt that there was need for an institute which would collect relevant information and documents on PEs, study specific issues and undertake consultancy and training exclusively for PEs. Dr.V.V. Ramanadham, the then Professor and Head of the Department of Commerce, Osmania University, translated Shri Khera’s concept into a reality that is IPE, with the active support and guidance provided by the late Dr. D. S Reddy, then Vice-Chancellor, Osmania University as an autonomous, non-profit society at the initiative of the then Cabinet Secretary to the Government of India, Shri S.S.Khera, ICS, and late Dr.D.S.Reddy, Vice-Chancellor of Osmania University. The Indian Council of Social Science Research (ICSSR), Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India, recognized the Institute as a ‘Centre of Excellence’ in social science research in 1976. The Institute is partly funded by the ICSSR and the Government of Andhra Pradesh.
The Institute is located in a picturesque greenwood area at Hyderabad in Osmania University Campus. Over the last 40 years, the Institute has widened the area of its work. Starting with research, the Institute soon found itself having to undertake consultancy for PEs and responding to the training needs of the executives of PEs and various educational programmes.

The Institute became a pioneer in the field of computerization, assisting the Government of Andhra Pradesh and several other states in formulation of computerization policy, developing software for PEs and public systems, and on the use of computers as a decision support system.

The educational programmes of the Institute have their basic foundation in the various research, training and consultancy activities undertaken by the Institute for public and private organizations/industries over the last four decades. The programmes are the natural extension of the educational activities of the Institute from the short term management education to the long-term one and have lead to vertical integration of the research function. The insights into management education began in 1981 with the commencement of a 3-year part time MBA (PE) programme for practicing managers. In the year 1995, the Institute started a two-year full time Post Graduate Diploma in Business Management (PGDBM), recognized as equivalent to MBA by the Association of Indian Universities (AIU), to provide skilled human resources to meet the requirements of the Industry. Consolidating on the experience and to meet the needs of the industry, the Institute commenced two-year full time Post Graduate Diploma in Management – Retail and Marketing (PGDM-RM) in 2007, Post Graduate Diploma in Management – Banking, Insurance and Financial Services(PGDM-BIF) in 2008, Post Gradue Diploma in Management – International Business (PGDM-IB) and Post Graduate Diploma in Management – Bio-Technology (PGDM-BT) in 2009. Institution also started Executive PGDM in 2009. These courses are recognized by AICTE. These insights have led to the creation of a niche for itself in the conduct of the PGDBM course. IPE’s long association with the Indian industry has been responsible for its pre-eminent position in the area of management education.

A Word from Placement Co-ordinator – 2011 Recruitments at a Glance

A Word from Placement Coordinator…..
It gives me immense pleasure to present, for the ninth successive year, Annual Placement Activity Report for the Class of 2013.

Apart from organizing the Nurturing camp to fine tune the student’s disposition in terms of conceptual clarity etc, we have also undertaken the mentoring activity in a big way with the full support of the management in general and faculty in particular.

As usual right from the conceptualization of cover design, printing of brochure, distribution etc students were involved, apart from taking their assistance in the recruitment process. The placement season of 2013 at IPE saw 300 students (117 from PGDM, 41 from PGDM –RM , 78 from PGDM-BIF, 55 from PGDM-IB, 05 from PGDM-BT & 4 from Exe-PGDM) participating in the process.

As a result of all the above, 118 companies have participated in the placement process, either by visiting our campus / by calling the students to their offices.

The Star recruiters for this year are Mecon Ltd., Oracle India, Berkadia, Berger Paints, VSP-RINL, Cognizant, Deloitte, Kotak Securities, Mahindra Satya, etc.

We deputed faculty to visit to places like Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore, New Delhi, as a part of our continued exercise to create an image and to extend the outreach of our students and as a result new companies like Kent Ro Systems, eClerx Services Ltd., Sresta Natural Bio Products etc visited IPE for Campus Recruitment.

Some of the other focused activities undertaken by the Placement Committee are:
• Career counseling by the faculty and the trained professionals in different functional areas
• Personality development program for the students to hone up their interview skills
• Arranging alumni meet wherein our alumni not only shared their experiences vis –a-vis the realities of the corporate life but also enlightened their juniors on the growing expectation of the corporate world.

Having presented a brief report of the Placement Activity for the Class of 2013 I will be failing in my duty if I don’t acknowledge the support and guidance received from my colleagues both from academic and non-academic. Firstly, I would like to place on the top of the record the help and guidance extended by our beloved Director Prof. R K Mishra, who never spares an effort on his part either in guiding us or in lending us the required help. Secondly, all the Course Coordinators, my other senior colleagues who were not only critical in reviewing our work but were never found wanting when it came to extending all the required cooperation and support, but for which we in the placement committee would not have been able to do a good job.

Next, I would like to thank my colleagues from the Placement Committee who were extremely cooperative with their suggestions / views. I also thank my other faculty colleagues for sparing some of their valuable time and visiting the companies/ or for taking part in conducting Mock Interviews / Group Discussions etc. I also wish to thank Mr. Satyam N Kandula, Sr.A O (Admn), Mr Goverdhan, AO, and other officers & staff members for their timely support to make the placement operations a success.

I also take this opportunity to thank all my faculty colleagues, Associate Placement Committee Members [Mr Vivek & Mr Mahesh] and the non-academic staff for their continued support and unstinted cooperation. Last but not the least I do like to thank my colleague from the Placement Divison Ms Shailaja HV for her sincere and dedicated efforts, first for assisting us in the placement process and then in bringing out this Annul Placement Activity Report in a presentable manner.

Before I conclude, let me also thank the Members of the Student’s Placement Committee who did a commendable job in handling the tedious activity by taking time off their rigorous schedule. My appreciation to Mr.G Omana Kuttan for assisting us throughout the year in the Placement activity with a smile always on his face.
We in the Placement Committee would love to hear from our colleagues of any suggestions to improve the placement activity report in particular and placement activity in general.
Wishing all of us for a rejuvenated placement activity for the Class of 2013 and assuring you the best of the services in Placements at all the time, I remain.
