Course programme

PGP-PMP is a One-Year Post Graduate Programme in Public Management and Policy from the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad. PGP-PMP is in a sense a unique cross disciplinary academic programme, because it effectively blends the features of an executive MBA programme with the knowledge and skill domains of a public policy and management programme. It is a full-time residential programme with a sharp focus on public policy formulation and implementation, financial regulation, infrastructure development, and public enterprise management. It has been designed to sharpen skills and to broaden the perspective of civil servants; managers of government, public enterprises, and NGO's; and executives of private sector firms engaged in public management. The programme has an international exchange / attachment component and is expected to prepare the participants to take on challenging public management and policy assignments in the new globalized world. At the end of the programme, placement services are provided to non-sponsored participants.

PGP-PMP has about 800 contact or equivalent hours of engagement. The programme has three modules - a core management (CM) module that would be equivalent to a similar module in any leading international one-year executive management programme, a core public management and policy (CPMP) module, and electives leading to concentration in a number of areas. In addition, an international attachment/exchange module would provide the necessary exposure to working at senior levels in public policy and management. The years of experience of IIMA in research and consulting for governments, regulatory bodies, and the public sector are being brought to bear upon to offer this unique executive programme. The programme's core management module is similar to the 'building blocks' of the Post-Graduate Programme in Management for Executives (PGPX) of the Institute.
