IIM Udaipur has recently launched a Postgraduate Diploma in Business Administration for Working Executives or PGDBA-WE program. This is a 20-month PG degree course in business administration suitable for working executives, who have at least three years of full-time post-qualification work experience.
The course is taught by the faculties of IIM Udaipur and aims to help professionals improve their performance and career growth by establishing a solid foundation and in-depth understanding of business management, the institute claims. The program offers weekend classes in an online format and two week-long on-campus modules.
Selection was defined by scores obtained in the GMAT, GRE or CAT or the examination conducted by IIM Udaipur, as well as performance in a personal interview. The program lays a solid foundation in management fundamentals along with elective course options, the institute says. Classroom sessions use a case-based approach to learning, which brings real-life situations into the classroom and encourages students to be active participants in their learning.
The course will include seminars, simulations, games, role-playing, guest lectures and group activities. Participants must adapt, negotiate and solve problems while honing their interpersonal and communication skills.
Professor Janat Shah, Director IIM Udaipur, said: “Through research, we have sought to create managerial knowledge and talent. We have been recognized as one of the top research institutes in the country and our goal is to be in the UT Dallas rankings by 2030 where no Indian institute is currently listed. We are also focused on transformational education and our initiative to provide high quality online and easily delivered executive education would help professionals not only stay current but also enrich their careers. We made digital a cornerstone of all our programs early on and this finds particular relevance to the pressing need of the industry.
Arun Krishnan, Director of Human Resources at Diageo, said: “I am happy to address the professionals who have taken this opportunity to retrain. I suggest you always focus on the experience rather than the outcome, be humble, inquisitive, inquisitive, and not be scared, overwhelmed, or overconfident about anything. Think through the goal with the right set of tools, skills, and mindset. We should focus on agility, including learning agility, people agility, change agility, outcome agility, and self-awareness agility. I wish you all the best and enjoy this continuous journey of learning.
