Indian Institute of Management Kozhikode (IIMK) recently launched its two year executive post graduate programme in management (EPGP) (accredited by AMBA) and a one-year executive post graduate certificate in general management (EPGCGM) in partnership with Hughes Communications for 2013-2015. These programmes targets more than 60 cities including Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Kolkata, Pune, Chennai and Hyderabad through Interactive Onsite Learning (IOL) platform of Hughes Global Education.
IIMK also offers executive post graduate certificate (1 year program) in Strategic Management, Operations Management, Finance Management, Marketing Management, Information Technology Management, and Human Resource Management.
"This course is designed to provide a thorough understanding of specialized management functions and thus enable students to advance in their careers by way of promotions and better jobs in areas of their interest and is similar to the residential PGP program," Says Prof. Debashis Chatterjee, Director, IIMK.
Classes are regularly conducted through two-way Audio & Video communication (teleclassroom) with streaming facilities that provides a virtual classroom learning environment. The platform offers interactivity similar to a live classroom session, where a student sitting in any part of the country, at any given point in time, can interact freely with the professor, raise questions, queries, etc. making the interaction as spontaneous and natural as in a regular classroom. These programmes have two modules; the participants attend classes by logging in to any of the 300 plus high bandwidth networked classrooms that are present in the country and the other component, called in-campus module is conducted at IIMK campus at Kozhikode.
"This only one of its kind program has been designed to meet the requirement of executives who are moving towards strategic decision making roles in the organizations. The focus is on imparting lessons through courseware that includes real life case-studies and practical sessions to ensure that students emerge as skilled professionals, armed with the necessary tools and knowledge to manage brands in the digital-age," says Shantanu Moitra, Business Head, Hughes Education.
Hughes Global Education has partnered with Hughes since 2002 and has more than 25,000 students adopt its platform across 155 classrooms in 75 cities.
