The Indian Institute of Management Indore launched its flagship Post Graduate Programme in Management (PGP) in Mumbai on Monday.
PGP is a two-year regular and fulltime academic (non-residential) programme being offered by IIM Indore at Mumbai. Upon successful completion, the candidates will get Post Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM) from IIM Indore (India) which is recognised by Association of Indian Universities (AIU) as equivalent to MBA degree of an Indian University.
The programme aims to groom participants into competent professional managers with a capacity to learn and adapt to national and international environment.
The two-year PGP is covered in six terms and the programme at Mumbai is similar to that at IIM Indore. The candidates admitted for PGP at Mumbai are required to complete the programme at Mumbai only.
To give PGP Mumbai participants a feel of campus life, they would visit IIM Indore campus for a term of three months in their last term.
During this campus immersion, the participants would take some elective courses along with the PGP students of IIM Indore.
While inaugurating the programme chairman IIM Indore K V Kamath gave an inspirational address and talked about the exciting future that awaits the participants.
At the same time, he observed that young leaders in an interconnected world must be sensitive to the priorities that need to be in focus for India's potential to be translated into reality.
