Course programme

The Exec-PGP programme provides executives with an opportunity to earn a Postgraduate Diploma in Business Management without interrupting their career. The curriculum is similar to that of the BM programme and it is recognized by AICTE and is equivalent to an MBA.

The participants spend about 165 days in Campus in thirty months to complete the course requirements. They are expected to do additional work as carry-home projects and assignments. The mix of participants, which includes entrepreneurs and executives from various functional areas, provides an enabling environment for learning. The Institute awards the Postgraduate Diploma in Business Management to participants who successfully complete all the requirements of this programme.

Academic Programme

The Exec-PGP is organized in 8 visits across thirty months. Participants are expected to stay on campus for about 20 days in a term. This period is announced to the participants in advance so that they can arrange for their leave of absence from their respective organizations. During this period of their stay on campus they are required to be available full time as there will be intensive classroom sessions and discussions.


The curriculum for the Exec-PGP consists of 41 courses including 23 core (compulsory), 16 elective courses of 3 credits each and a dissertation equivalent of 2 courses totaling 123 credits. The course outlines, study material and assignments are given to the participants before the term begins. Participants are expected to come prepared to class with the readings given before. When the participants leave the campus, they are given course outlines, study materials, and assignments for the next term. While away from the campus, participants are expected to work at least 3 hours per day on the course work and should be well conversant with the study material. With such structuring of classes, participants get a proper spread for absorbing and assimilating various inputs provided in these courses.
