The Post Graduate Program (PGP) in management is a two year, full time, residential program. During the two year of PGP the participant will receive academic inputs in two parts, namely, the compulsory package and the elective package. Distinct objectives will be served by each package. Largely, the compulsory package will be in the first year and the elective packages would be in the second year. All first year modules are compulsory. The input of the compulsory package is essential for all managers. The overlap between the compulsory package and the elective package will be minimal.
The compulsory package occupies 62 percent of the total curriculum, which includes several organization-based projects. The aim of the compulsory package is to provide the participant with the fundamental knowledge, skills and the techniques contextual understanding, and overall perspective necessary for general management. Compulsory coursework will provide broad training to participants that will help them in career flexibility and mobility.
It will also help them move towards general management positions where the challenges and the contributions may be the greatest. The mixture of compulsory and elective courses will help participants develop an in-depth understanding of the interrelationships crucial to the successful business management. This will enable them to be more effective in their jobs while being sensitive to the issues and challenges confronting people in other parts of the organization.
In the second year, participants will get deeper understanding of areas of their interest through a package of elective courses. Second year participants may choose to concentrate on particular topics or areas of their interest, if they wish. Since most of the participants are likely to start their careers in one of the functional areas, the specialization in the second year helps build the special skills required for those areas. Typical concentrations will be marketing, finance, strategy and international business, operations management, human resources management and information technology. There will also be a few compulsory courses so that the participants get more practical exposure.
