The Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Calcutta has launched a new Post Graduate Certificate in General Management programme (PGCGM) for working executives.PGCGM is a part-time programme and delivered through the direct-to- device mode. It will provides participants the opportunity to develop applied competencies in general management with minimal impact on their work schedule and professional commitments.
The programme, developed in conjunction with the different academic groups at IIM Calcutta, offers a holistic understanding of the practice of management.
"The demand among young working professionals for having access to state-of-the-art general management education from a premier institute like IIM Calcutta from the convenience of their home or office without having to leave their jobs has hitherto remained under-served. To fulfill this expectation IIM Calcutta has conceived this innovative PGCGM programme aimed at working executives having two to five years' experience," Prof Uttam Kumar Sarkar, Dean, New Initiatives and External Affairs, IIM Calcutta said.
There are various online platforms available for students where they can learn the nooks and crannies of management as well such as Coursera, Stanford University, Study.com and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), to name a few. These platforms enable students to enroll in various management programmes online with the added advantage of getting a certificate as most of these online platforms have affiliation with some or the other university for their courses.
