IIM-B students who have taken up the PGP (Post Graduate Programme in Management) no longer need to worry about attendance; neither do they need to undergo a summer internship with a corporate house. Instead the management institute prefers if the students explore entrepreneurship, work for an NGO or take up a research project under a professor. Further, individual instructors will now decide if there should be a cap on attendance; and if so, what should the cap be. Interestingly, before this change was implemented, students with less than 75 per cent attendance would lose one grade point.
