Post Graduate Programme for Experienced Professionals
Our Global Immersion Programme would give PGPXP students the opportunity to travel to major business centers around the world to learn prevalent best practices globally. During these immersions, students would team up with their classmates, professors and influential business leaders to engage in collaborative learning experiences, gain an international perspective, interact with local industry leaders and also sample a taste of the local culture.
Mannheim, Germany : Is a city in the southwestern part of Germany, the third-largest in the German state of Baden-Wurttemberg after Stuttgart and Karlsruhe. This city is home to Daimler, John Deere, Caterpillar, ABB, IBM, Roche, Reckitt Benckiser, Unilever, Siemens etc. German corporates, many of them family-owned, look to the long term. Avoiding stock market myopia, they plough profits back into their businesses – which is why investment amounts to almost a fifth of GDP. This, in turn, together with superb vocational training, helps explain Germany’s legendary productivity. Over a power-packed week, PGPXP executives would undergo specific modules like – ‘Doing Business in Germany’, ‘Innovation Management in Germany’, ‘Cross cultural management’ with industry visits to leading German companies.

The International Field Trip for all students reading for the PGDM is a mandatory part of their curriculum. Led by faculty members, a field trip involves travel to a target region or country between terms. This will enable the students to immerse themselves in the macro business culture and also give them the opportunity to interact directly with business professionals, entrepreneurs, academicians and government policy-makers.
For the 2018-2020 academic session, we have finalized field trips to the city state of Singapore. This hands-on module will prove to be of interest to the students who would be eager to learn more about the Singaporean ‘Tiger’ Economy.
City state of Singapore : Singapore sports the world’s seventh largest GDP per capita and more than one in six households have US $1 million in cash savings. In the past decade alone, the number of Singaporeans running their own business has doubled, giving the city-state the world’s second most entrepreneurs-per-capita, behind only the U.S backed by an enviable Public Governance structure. Given Singapore’s history, it does raise an important question for the PGDM Students – ‘What permitted this island nation to so rapidly become the leading Asian hub for innovation, technology and entrepreneurship?’. Over a quarter of Singaporeans between 35 and 44 say they have plans to commercialise their organic ideas. As these young people achieve success, and a generation of Singaporean Mark Zuckerbergs and Larry Pages inspire the public imagination, Singapore’s burgeoning culture of entrepreneurship––augmented by geographical advantage, and decades of careful government planning in the making––will only continue to surpass expectations. Something we would want our PGDM to better understand and imbibe.
