In the context of current global business scenario where innovation is the key, IMT Ghaziabad, a B-school has remodelled its PGDM-Executive Programme. The step is taken to introduce an extraordinary, high performing curriculum and create a pull factor for the industry to hire students from the executive programme on a large scale.
It is an international immersion programme that would require the students to spend two weeks at various partner institutes in Europe. IMT’s rebranded executive programme meets the needs of future business leaders and creates valuable learning that drives performance in today’s competitive business environment.
Dr. V. Panduranga Rao, Group Advisor, IMT said, “The initiatives have led to an increase in the overall educational value especially in the context of industry ready candidates that is being discussed all around.” The institute is focusing on the industry-academia interface, bridging the gap between the technical and practical knowledge.
Highlighting the need for remodelling the entire Executive Programme, Dr. Sandeep Puri said, “The major reason for this change was the feedback given by industry specialists that students need to be more industry oriented. To address this issue, IMT has brought certain key changes in its PGDM-Executive Programme, which includes the introduction of five courses sponsored by the industry itself in place of having just a few industry sessions.” This leads to better engagement of the industry with the students and thereby facilitates meaningful alliances.
Dr. Khurana, Head of Admissions, IMT said, “IMT’s PGDM- Executive Programme is a 15-month programme, which includes three months of industrial training and is specifically meant for students who have at least three years of work experience. With the rebranding of the programme, IMT intends to offer unique opportunities and customised curriculum to magnify the impact of its Executive Programme and create solutions on how to respond to the unique needs of today’s dynamic business culture.”
