IIM Nagpur started its journey in 2015 and has already made a mark in academic fraternity. In 2021, IIMN has made some giant strides to leverage its expertise in delivering quality management education, by designing and launching two new degree-granting programmes and various domain specific online certification programmes.
The current businesses demand reskilling and upskilling. As a part of its vision and mission, IIMN launched the MBA for Working Professionals programme, now known as Executive MBA with an objective to reach out to executives and working professionals in various sectors across public and private organizations. These mid- to senior-level executives, who are probably on the cusp of assuming leadership and key decision-making positions in their organizations, and who missed out on formal management education earlier, would benefit the most from this programme.
The Executive MBA programme aims to provide flexibility for the participants through sessions primarily scheduled on weekends. This will help the participants to manage their hectic schedule during weekdays and provide them opportunity to attend the sessions during weekends.
The courses in the program is taken by the experienced faculties of IIM Nagpur and many visiting faculties from industry and academia. The participants will gain immensely from the experienced faculties teaching in the program.
Management education is also about peer learning. The design of the program makes it suitable for participants from different backgrounds, industries and occupations. This will help the participants to learn different perspective of business decisions and also to develop their professional network.
While the overall course work and academic requirements will be rigorous, the journey and experience of these two years will surely be rewarding and enriching for the participants. This will open doors of new opportunities and new vistas for the working professionals to not only excel in their existing organizations, but also explore new roles and sectors, as they look to pivot their careers to greater heights.
