The Indian Institute of Management Calcutta (IIM-C) on Monday announced a year-long executive course in international business in Delhi. The course is specifically designed to help students acquire knowledge and skill to work in international companies. 'The executive programme in international business is a course which helps keep pace with today's requirement where globalisation, Internet and hyper competition has dramatically re-shaped the markets and has changed the way business is being done. Today, one has to keep pace with the customers requirement and has to bring in services and products as per global standards,' said an IIM-C official.
Unlike the grilling tests which one has to go through to get admission into an IIM, the eligibility criterion for this programme is 50 % marks in graduation and three-years work experience. The programme will see maximum use of technology. It will consist of a judicious blend of lectures by two senior faculty members of IIM-C, Anjan Raichaudhary and Prafulla Agnihotri, real life access to case studies, live corporate examples, general discussions and assignments. 'There will also be regular evaluation processes and at the end of the 12-month course, the students will get a certificate from IIM-C,' added the official. The last date for application to this course is May 15 and the course fee is INR 206,000.
