IIM Kozhikode is planning to set up a satellite campus at Kochi, primarily focusing on executive education. With an internationally-accredited executive management education programme, the proposed campus will expand offerings of the institute in this space by starting full-time and part-time programmes targeted at middle and senior level executives.

The satellite campus will be initially housed within Infopark and will focus primarily on executive education — both long term and short term as well as specialised courses for executives of the IT sector. Initial offerings will include a one-year executive MBA programme as well as two-year part-time programmes in addition to a large number of short duration management development programmes. By positioning its satellite campus focusing on executive education in Kochi, IIM Kozhikode is planning to support the growth and development of business and industry in the region. The initial facility inside Infopark is expected to be functional by October 2012 and the offerings will start before the end of 2012.
