Why pursue Executive Management Programmes?

We live in a competitive world, wherein business dynamics is continually changing. To survive in this VUCA (volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity) world, one needs to be ever-ready to face the hurdles on one’s way. Not only survival in this competitive scenario is getting increasingly difficult, but definitions of job-fitments are also changing swiftly. Hence, it becomes increasingly important that one is equipped with relevant knowledge and is familiar with the technical know-how to face business challenges.

After working for a certain number of years in the same sector, a kind of stagnation sets in among professionals. Professionals feel stuck in the positions they are holding on their career graph. To move ahead, either in terms of corporate ranks or to gain an edge over others, they realize the need for further study to upskill themselves through these Executive Management Programmes. Pursuing Executive Management Programmes is the way forward to gain such expertise. Unlike many other programmes, theoretical knowledge is beautifully gelled with pragmatic industry scenarios, enhancing participant’s critical and strategic thinking skills.

MDI Gurgaon offers two Executive Management Programmes, namely Post Graduate Diploma in Management – Executive Management Programme (3-year Part-Time Programme) and Post Graduate Diploma in Management - National Management Programme (15-month Full Time Executive Programme) for working executives. These programmes not only impart knowledge on subjects but also refine and strengthen soft skills like leadership skills, communication competencies, adaptability to new situations, and understanding self.

During this unprecedented period of time, a lot of overhaul has been done globally and India is not an exception to it. We at MDI Gurgaon, to cope up with the changing time, have taken a leap forward and implemented plethora of techonological changes.

Various technological advancement undertaken during Covid Pandemic:

  • The online classes were conducted through Google Meet, Google Classroom and MS-Teams, Zoom platforms. Online reading material, ebooks, case studies, and VPN services of the library were provided to students.
  • Multiple Trainings were also conducted for students by the experts to make them aware and adept to embrace online platforms.
  • The online classes were made more interactive by providing Smart class (Impartus platform) sessions to students for Qualitative/Quantitative courses.
  • Further, online exams are being conducted in association with Cocubes (Aon), wherein the students are provided with individual credentials to login and appear in the exam.

To keep up with the quality and rigor of the programme, the course outlines, and teaching methodologies/pedagogy were updated as per the need of the current times. Undergoing the rigor of executive programmes at MDI, not only professionals benefit but also profit the organizations, they work for by their fresh perspectives. These programmes provide opportunities to establish new networks through personal contacts and associations in B-school, which prove to be fruitful for one’s future endeavors and also pave a lucrative way for career advancements.

“Time spent at MDI for EMP was indeed very rewarding. The entire perspective changed, started looking at issues in a much more holistic way and working out the solutions more efficiently and effectively. The course provided necessary width and depth of knowledge besides tools for implementation. And most importantly a diverse group of fellow participants, who have continued as family since then”.

“The EMP program at MDI was a boon for me after 12 years of corporate life. The finance professional in me with CA and ICWA got to appreciate the whole gamut of business functions. The MDI rigour and knowledge imparting mechanism does a lot of good. I got rewarded for the 3 years of work by graduating to leadership positions from executive positions. I recommend it to everyone who aspires to get into leadership roles”.

“I was privileged to be a participant of NMP IV (1991-92). The exposure, after a good period in the industry, helped me to develop a holistic perspective to managing business and subsequent evolution to leadership roles. Developing the ability to gain a holistic perspective to managing, is becoming ever more important in a world of great uncertainties and super specialization. NMP helps one to develop that perspective and evolve to leadership roles”.

Over time, the programme has evolved into the Consortium Executive Management Programme (Consortium Executive MBA) in partnership with ESCP-EUROPE. The programme is recognized by AICTE and is accredited by AMBA, the Association of MBAs (UK). It focuses on developing leaders who will excel in the rapidly changing business environment, become agents of change and be charged with a customer centric orientation.
