Indian Institute of Management Lucknow, Noida Campus
International Programme in Management for Executives (IPMX) 2018-19


Business success in India today is increasingly contingent on events and processes that take place across the globe. Firms operating in India need to compete with firms which are global in reach and expertise. With increasing globalisation of the nature and context of businesses operating in India, business managers require skills and orientation and that equip them to manage businesses across borders. Dealing with these challenges requires an expanded horizon of management thinking and leadership which can be achieved only through continuous improvement and upgrading of capabilities, skills and changes in mindset.
