Structure & Curriculum

SPJIMR’s Part time Executive Management Programmes PGP-GM has been designed specifically for mid-level managers looking at moving towards career growth and leadership roles. The high degree of application-oriented learning and contextual customisation has enabled both participants and companies to reap rich dividends from the Programme. SPJIMR has been conducting Executive Management Programmes for close to 20 years. Participants of these programmes have been able to effect change and influence management practices in their organizations. With high level of industry recognition, a rich and customized programme content, a highly effective learning experience and a network of alumni who have done exceedingly well in their careers, Participants stand to gain a clear edge amongst their contemporaries. In addition, PGP-GM offers an AICTE approved diploma (PGDM-Executive Management Programme) and also has the highly acclaimed international accreditation from AMBA.

The class will be a mix of participants with a work experience of between 5 to 15 years, from a cross section of companies, industries, functions and roles.

Application exercises are assignments where the concepts studied in class are applied to a real-life situation in the organisation that a participant represents. Application exercises reinforce the learnings garnered in class and enable a participant to understand his / her organisation much better.
