Chairperson's message

Greetings from the Executive Education team of IIMA.

At IIMA, we see Executive Education as one of our core activities that is emblematic for our symbiotic existence with the corporate world. Our programmes act as a bridge between IIMA and the corporate world as they are meant for working executives who have a strong desire to learn, improve, and think differently and would like to keep themselves abreast of the latest concepts, ideas, tools, and techniques in general management as well as in different functional areas.

We have truly strong and dedicated faculty teams to deliver these programmes. Each faculty member brings a wealth of intellectual horsepower and scholarship to the executive education process and has his/her own unique style. Needless to add, the faculty members would have high expectations from you in terms of preparedness for the class, quality of participation, and desire to learn and apply.

At IIMA, you will have a unique experience of learning through the case method pedagogy. In the case method approach, you learn as much through discussions with your peers as from the instructors. Since cases are based on specific organizational situations with specific information on people, places, timing, and other relevant factual descriptions, you would need to figure out how to analyse the situation, what to infer, and what actions to take. While experiencing this process, you would start realizing the importance of bringing others perspectives into the analysis of a situation.

Besides Open Enrollment Programmes (OEPs), we also conduct Customized Enrolment Programmes (CEPs) for companies specifically tailored to suit their requirements.The training modules for these programmes are designed in close association with our clients to ensure value added delivery.

During your stay, you will have access to our library which is considered to be one of the best in the country. We also have a very well equipped gymnasium with modern amenities which you can use during your stay. The stay and board facilities at our guest houses (International Management Development Centre and Kasturbhai Lalbhai Management Development Centre) have been consistently rated as excellent by the participants and we are continuously improving them.

On behalf of the ExEd Committee, I appreciate your interest in our ExEd and look forward to address your professional needs relating to enhancing your competencies.

Best wishes.
