Course programme

PGPX is a full time residential programme for executives with substantial work experience leading to a One Year Post-Graduate Diploma in Management for Executives.

The design of PGPX is built on the Institute's well established experience of designing and running postgraduate management programmes for exceptionally bright students and a wide range of executive education programmes for practicing managers from many countries. It takes into account the substantial and varied experience the selected executives bring to the classroom.

The objective of the programme is to develop bright, enthusiastic, and aspirational executives into management leaders and change agents in the global arena.

The programme has a general management focus, with emphasis on managing across borders and cultures. It has an international project (called International Immersion) besides teaching content drawn from many countries.

The programme is open to executives of all nationalities.

PGPX Structure

Programme Segments: PGPX has six segments:
(i) Induction
(ii) Building Blocks
(iii) Preparing for Top Management
(iv) International Immersion
(v) Electives
(vi) Capstone


This segment enables the student to
(i) get familiar with the infrastructure, services, co curricular and extra curricular
activities at IIMA.
(ii) tune into the programme content and IIMA system of learning.
(iii) understand the self while making the transition to the PGPX and the future.
This is spread over three and a half days.
Building Blocks: This segment crystallizes and enhances the basic conceptual and analytical
knowledge of the student for managerial effectiveness. This has nineteen courses,
offered by nine Areas, spread over 260 sessions. (1 session = 75 minutes)
Preparing for Top Management: This segment prepares the student for leadership and
change agent roles in a top management context. This has twelve courses, spread over 145
International Immersion: This segment provides international exposure to the student
with a view to
(i) working effectively in an environment different from their "home culture."
(ii) understanding macro-economic underpinnings, and strengths and weaknesses of the
host country from a business perspective.
This is equivalent to 90 sessions.
