So What is a trimester?
Trimester refers to one term of study in IPM. I am sure you must have heard about the semester system that most of the colleges follow. So, a semester is when you divide the yearly course load in 2 equal half calling every half a trimester. In contrast, a trimester is. When you divide the yearly courseload into three equal parts. Most of the B-schools in India follow a trimester system instead of a semester. Each year has 3 terms, so overall IPM has 5 x 3=15 terms.
It’s been exactly a year and three months since I first walked into my IIM Indore classroom. In my second year and an online mode, there are several things that I miss dearly.
Cultural and sports activities, which are a much-needed distraction from the rigour of classroom studies, are my favourite things to happen in the college other than the two fests.
The IPM is divided into a 3+2 structure, i.e. first three years of undergrad and then two years of the flagship MBA program.
