IBS Kolkata offers two year PGPM Program, which is designed to impart managerial skills in students and equip them with appropriate knowledge so that they are able to have a global view of the organization, and look at organizational issues from a holistic perspective, irrespective of their specialization in a particular functional area.
The courses offered in the program are practice-oriented with emphasis placed on application of principles, tools and concepts to address the challenges and problems faced by today’s organizations. These courses are carefully designed to facilitate learning in managerial decision making in the context of organizational strategy. Students are encouraged to critically evaluate decision situations and use rigorous analysis in arriving at a particular decision. At the same time, the ethical implications of their decisions are also urged to be considered. The program is aimed at deepening the understanding of the key functional areas and strategic dimensions of management, and equipping future professionals with the latest tools and techniques.
One of the unique features of the program offered at IBS Kolkata is the 14 weeks Summer Internship Project (SIP) that our students have to undergo at the end of Semester II. This extended duration makes the SIP more than an academic project, and students can make a real contribution to the organization. The students get an exposure to the working of an organization for a reasonable duration, which allows them to understand the nuances of corporate working. SIP is a vehicle for introducing students to real-life situation, which cannot be simulated in the classroom and requires the students to undergo the rigor of professional environment both in form and substance. It exposes them to technical skills and helps them to acquire social skills by drawing them onto contact with real professionals.
