PGDM Executive

Overview

The PGDM Executive is a full-time AICTE approved 18-month programme in the nature of an accelerated MBA designed specifically for high-performing professionals with work experience.

Sessions for the program will be conducted mainly using physical classroom based sessions with very few virtual classroom based sessions. This structure allows students to meet their requirements of continuing education of the highest quality while continuing in their current employment/business.

With the rich opportunities for interaction with renowned faculty, peers, and industry experts, the program allows students many opportunities to apply the conceptual insights gained in the classroom to their respective workplace on a day-to-day basis. The students also get multiple opportunities to share their work/marketplace experiences thereby enriching classroom learning and fostering meaningful, value-added discussions amongst peers.

In addition to the application opportunities provided in individual courses, the two field work based projects provide ample scope to apply the knowledge gained during the program to real-life business settings and decisions. Students are also given multiple opportunities to understand the real-life applications and relevance of the knowledge gained in different courses through in-built evaluation mechanisms such as projects, assignments, case study based assignment cum presentations, etc.
