Course programme

The emerging business scenario makes global and inter cultural working an imminent reality. There is a dire need for managers and future leaders with a global mindset - managers who can appreciate different cultures, who can build networks across geographies, and live and work across cultures.

MDI Gurgaon in 2006 launched a unique, first of its kind programme in India - the Post Graduate Programme in International Management (PGP-IM). This is one of the efforts made by MDI to develop managers with appropriate mindset and ability to work in global markets. The programme was launched in collaboration with European School of Management (ESCP-EAP), France. The unique dual degree programme is delivered partly in India (MDI) and partly in Europe (ESCP-EAP campuses). The first phase of the programme is delivered on MDI Campus, at Gurgaon. The second phase of the programme is delivered in Europe at the London, Paris & Turin campuses (English Track).

In Europe, students will not only get classroom learning opportunity, they will also get an opportunity to work there or in India on a paid internship basis. In addition, there will be scope to get placement in Europe. Living and working in Europe will enable students to understand and appreciate other cultures, hone their capabilities to work across cultures and develop global mindsets.


The key objectives of the programme are to groom global leaders with:-
  • Competencies to work across cultures.
  • Ability to work in unfamiliar markets.
  • Strong general management orientation.
  • Adequate grounding in various management functions.

There will be classroom teaching through case studies, simulations and role play. Direct exposure to workplace realities will be provided through consultancy assignments and internships in the corporate sector. An integrated batch of ESCP-EAP students and MDI students will go through the entire programme. Close interactions of this kind will develop understanding, appreciation and tolerance of differences across cultures and develop the skills to work globally.

Programme Structure

The programme is spread over six modules. The first three modules spread over 8 months would be delivered at MDI. The fourth module of 6 months duration would be held at ESCP-EAP Campus. Fifth module will constitute 4 to 6 months of internship in India/ Europe while the sixth module of 1 V2 months would consist of dissertation work. Module 1 and 2 focus on providing basic inputs in qualitative and quantitative domains and provide analytical as well as communication skills. In the 3rd and 4th modules the focus shifts to giving an International Management perspective to the students. The 5th and 6th modules are dedicated to providing in-company exposure in a global context.

ESCP-EAP (European School of Management) is Europe's top school, highly ranked (number 2) by the Financial Times. The school has five campuses in Paris, London, Madrid, Berlin and Torino. Cultural and social learning is actively encouraged, and this is possible with the rich variety of activities naturally on offer in a capital cf"

About ESCP-EAP 5 campuses in Europe

There really is something for everyone; be it exploring the historical sites of the Bastille, Buckingham Palace, the Plaza Mayor or the Brandenburg Gate, or discovering the endless shows, theatres, operas, festivals and impressive markets. Each city is the political, cultural, economic or financial capital of their native country. However, each campus offers its own unique characteristics, which enables MEB applicants to suit their individual preferences.


The Paris campus is conveniently located in the centre of the city. It is the largest of the five campuses and hosts the greatest number of faculty and students. The school s outstanding reputation and close relationships with leading French companies maximize internship and career prospects for students. With extensive campus facilities and over 50 active students clubs and associations, a strong sense of school spirit and community prevails.


In 2004 the campus in the UK moved to Hampstead, North-West London. With huge refurbishments undertaken, the new UK campus is able to offer students state-of-the art facilities, whilst being situated in a traditional Victorian building. The attractive lights of the city and the business community are only a tube rides away, whilst the fashionable area of Hampstead offers a broad cultural experience away from the hustle and bustle of inner city life..


The ESCP-EAP Berlin campus is located near one of the historical centre-pieces of Berlin. The Charlottenburg Castle, which is located in baroque gardens over looks the school's beautiful late 19th Century building, which has been recently upgraded with state-of-the-art facilities. Throughout the year there are events and conferences on the latest business issues. ESCP-EAP Berlin is a "wirtschaftswissenschaftliche Hochschule" with a degree-awarding charter.


Located in a residential suburb, the Madrid site is an ideal place for students to concentrate their efforts in bringing out with success such a demanding programme as the MEB. The environment of gardens and parks sets a scene oriented to hard work and personal reflection necessary for the development of managerial competencies. The close personal attention of the staff in Madrid provides an open and friendly environment for the best results in the program. Being located near the University quarter and close to the centre of Madrid also provides access to a student environment and all the necessary services.


The ESCP-EAP Italian campus is located in Torino in a beautiful building with state-of-the-art facilities. Torino is one of the main business centers of the Italian economy as well as a masterpiece of architecture and one of the favourite student cities in Italy. The Torino campus has strong relationships with a number of Italian and International companies, which participate to its governance. The local academic partner is the "Universita degli Studi di Torino" which awards the "Laurea Specialistica" degree.
