The one-year full-time residential program is meant for Executives with more than five years of professional experience. It provides mid-career professionals with the ideal platform to augment their existing skill to aid them in the race for senior and top management roles in the industry.
The class, according to IIMC, comprises an eclectic mix of youth and experience. The Institute holds learning beyond the classroom as an important facet. “While case discussions enrich the practical experience of unraveling real-life business puzzles, informal discussions on varied topics from thoughtfully chosen adjunct readings broaden individual perspectives,” it says.
The immersion program helps future business leaders hone their skills while tackling real-world challenges. Individuals also make time to participate in business case competitions, branding exercises and self-interest career advancement clubs.
