New Offer from Indian School of Business

The Indian School of Business (ISB) has launched a Post-Graduate Programme in Management for Senior Executives (PGPMAX). The programme incorporates best practices and knowledge from Kellogg School of Management and The Wharton School.

It will be offered part-time over a period of 15 months and is specifically designed for industry executives with an average work experience of 15 years.

These executives are high-performing employees who are being groomed by their organisations to move into leadership roles. Announcing the programme, Ajit Rangnekar, Dean, ISB said: “Eight years after the successful launch of the one-year programme, the ISB is now launching PGPMAX.

Consistent feedback from the industry leaders over the years revealed the NEED for developing a leadership pipeline, and this has been the driving force for us to create this ambitious programme.”

PGPMAX is intended for executives who have excelled in functional domains such as finance, marketing, sales, operations, healthcare, information technology, and customer service and are now aspiring to move into general management positions.

The part-time model of the programme supports these executives to pursue a post-graduate programme in management equivalent in rigour and content to an EMBA without having to leave their jobs.

The programme design also ensures that location will not be a constraint for participants. They will participate in classroom sessions of six days every six weeks, over the 15-month duration.

PGPMAX will have faculty from top B-schools and industry experts from around the world bringing in latest business practices that can be applied immediately by these executives in their respective organisations. The PGPMAX also includes an international immersion as a part of the course.

During the immersion, participants will attend classes at Kellogg School of Management and The Wharton School, visit companies abroad and meet international industry leaders.

Through the immersion programme, participants will get to enhance their global sensitivities and reinforce their understanding of global business practices in different countries.

Applicants must have a bachelor’s degree and minimum of 10 years of full-time work experience. They will be evaluated on the following parameters: quality of work experience, evidence of professional success, business leadership potential and analytical and communication skills. The programme will commence from June 2010 onwards at the ISB campus at Hyderabad.
