Visakhapatnam is the crucible of intellect, innovation and industry, entrepreneurship, and enterprise. That the city is base to several large, medium, and small companies (public and private) in the core sector, energy, financial services, infrastructure, IT, pharma etc. exemplifies this fact.
For these city-based organizations to continue to succeed in competition and excel in delivering value to their stakeholders through their products and/or services, it's important that their human resources are up to date with new knowledge and skill sets to address challenges in the current business context.
The PGPEx (Post Graduate Program for Experienced-Professionals) of IIM Visakhapatnam (an Institution of National Importance under the IIM Act 2017) addresses precisely this felt-need. The curated Program contributes to the development of professional managers, entrepreneurs, and stewards of existing and emerging enterprises in the private, public, and social sectors by providing them with management education of global quality. The content-rich curriculum and learner-centric pedagogy help the Program-participants successfully build on their system skills, soft skills and social skills.
With classes scheduled conveniently in the evenings and over weekends, the Program, offers an ideal 'learn while you earn' opportunity to professionals based in and around Visakhapatnam.
“Welcome Aboard” is our call to all the aspirants with ambition to lead as game-changers and change-makers in their organizations!
