Highlight Story

For those executives who can't afford to take two years off for an MBA but still want the coveted IIM tag on their resumes, there is now a snappier alternative. Some of these prestigious institutes have begun offering short-duration courses that can help executives upgrade their managerial skills – coached by the best of the best. The duration of some these programmes is as short as three days and aimed at accentuating skills in a particular area of specialisation for executives with at least two years experience.

IIM Ahmedabad is currently inviting applications for two such programmes – managing IT projects and enhancing sales-force performance. These will commence in the last week of February and company-sponsored nominations will be accepted till February 8.

IIM Lucknow’s Noida Campus is offering a six-month course in advanced sales and marketing skills for executives with two years’ experience in this field.

This is an online-cum-campus programme stretching across 78 hours of study. Of these, 24 hours will be spent on campus in Noida. Selection will be based on an aptitude test as well as an assessment of the candidate’s background and motivation.

This month, IIM Bangalore is offering a short programme on management skills required in film and television. Industry luminaries, including Aamir Khan, will lead discussions as part of the course.

Another advantage of these courses is that they are light on the pocket – all of them have fee structures ranging between Rs 50,000 and Rs 80,000.
