The newly created PGDBA-WE (Post Graduate Diploma in Business Administration for Working Executives) degree at IIM Udaipur, a prestigious IIM is known for its global accreditation and rankings, has attracted a lot of attention. A twenty-months Post Graduate Diploma in Business Administration program is available for working executives with at least of three years of full-time post-qualification work experience. The curriculum provides two 1-week on-campus modules in addition to weekend online lectures. The program, which seeks to give professionals a strong foundation and in-depth understanding of business management, is taught by IIM Udaipur’s top-notch faculty members. In addition to performance, candidates were chosen based on their GMAT, GRE, CAT, or IIM Udaipur exam scores. Before switching to an online format, IIMU offered the course on-campus. This shift was made in response to demand from students who wanted the ease of taking the course from wherever they were.
The curriculum provides both optional course opportunities and a solid foundation in management fundamentals. A case-based learning strategy is used in the classroom sessions, encouraging students to actively engage in their learning by bringing real-life events into the setting. The case approach is supplemented with seminars, simulations, games, role-plays, guest lecturers, and group activities. While refining their interpersonal and communication skills, participants are forced to adapt, negotiate, and solve difficulties.
The training is open with corporate funding, but it has been well received by businesses encouraging their staff to apply.
Prof. Janat Shah, Director IIM Udaipur, welcomed the class for their first 1-week on-campus module, which coincided with the start of the program, and said, “Through research, we have strived to generate knowledge and managerial potential. We have received recognition as one of the top research institutions in the nation, and by 2030, we hope to be mentioned in the UT Dallas rankings, where there are currently no Indian Institutes. Our endeavour to offer high-quality executive education conveniently delivered online will enable professionals to stay current and advance their careers. We are also focused on transformative education. We incorporated digital very early on into every one of our programmes, which is now clearly relevant to the urgent demand of the sector.
“I am happy to address the professionals who have embraced this chance to reskill themselves,” stated Arun Krishnan, The Director of human resources at Diageo, in his speech on this occasion. I advise you to constantly prioritise the experience over the result, be modest, inquiring, and curious, and avoid feeling intimidated, overwhelmed, or overconfident in any situation. The goal with the appropriate abilities, knowledge, and attitude, including learning agility, people agility, change mastery, outcome agility, and self-aware agility, should be our main priority. I hope you have the greatest possible time and that you enjoy the ongoing learning process.
The course also attempts to assist students in discovering their own distinctive identities, purposes, visions, and goals. Participants will get a Post Graduate Diploma in Business Administration for Working Executives from IIM Udaipur after completing all programme requirements, including those pertaining to the exams.
