The three-year, part-time, postgraduate diploma programme for working executives and business owners culminates in a Postgraduate Diploma in Management approved by AICTE. The programme imparts the rigor of a full time programme through 900 plus hours of class room interaction, but spread over 3 academic years to accommodate the time constraints of a working executive or an entrepreneur. It allows working executives and business owners, who are willing to stretch out a bit, to acquire the highest quality management education whilst continuing with their current work.
The programme has unique advantages for the participants. The design of this programme inherently facilitates two-way learning. While participating in the programme the participants get many opportunities to apply the conceptual insights gained in the classroom to their workplace on a regular basis. The participants also get multiple opportunities to share their work/marketplace experiences thereby enriching classroom learning and advancing value-added discussions amongst peers. The two-way interaction on a real-time basis, over an extended period of time, would greatly help in better understanding the management concepts whilst honing practical application aspects of the concepts learnt in the classroom.. The program also attempts to balance the work-life pressures and classroom-learning rigor for participants by scheduling the class timings during late evenings and weekends, thereby providing breaks between terms, and reducing academic work-load during financial year endings.
The programme has been designed with the twin objectives of:
1-Imparting the highest quality of management education to the participants
2-Developing a general management perspective for the participants
To achieve these twin objectives, the programme has been designed for:
1- Application of classroom learning in work/marketplace and special projects
2-Peer learning through sharing of experiences in an academic setting
3- Addressing a few general concerns of participants for balancing the work and education, while scheduling classes and terms.
