All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) is planning to introduce new five year flexible dual degree and integrated courses in management. Starting from academic year 2012–13, the students will be able to join the undergraduate courses, after completing class XII.
Once through with the three year undergraduate course, they can then study for another year, get applied management credit and join the industry. After their stint with the industry, students can rejoin the course — study for another year — and obtain a masters degree in applied management. The five–year course will have a common entrance test at first year.
