He further added, “As the program would run from the temporary facilities at Punjab Institute of Technology till the new campus infrastructure is established on 60 acres of land near Manawala, there would be some challenges that students and faculty have to face, which is understood when a program runs from a temporary facilities in the initial years.” 

When it comes to learning and curriculum, however, the IIM Kozhikode faculty has gladly agreed to take the additional responsibility of teaching the group of students at Amritsar. “We have been receiving great support from the IIM Kozhikode faculty and academic groups who are identifying faculty resource for this new Institute.
