Business success in India today is increasingly contingent on events and processes that happen across the globe, as can be seen to a great extent in the financial markets, leading businesses sectors such as IT, ITeS, BPO etc, as well as core economy events such as Indian corporate acquisitions in steel, and aluminum, and overseas firms' multi-billion dollar acquisitions in the pharma and telecom sectors. The impending globalization of the organized retail sector, with both Indian and overseas players operating at global levels of operational excellence and scale, along with the agricultural sector opening up vide WTO ultimately, will indeed be the tipping point in the Indian economy's globalization. There will be no looking back, and firms operating in India will need to compete with firms which are global in reach and expertise with the competition being similar both in Indian and overseas markets. With the increasingly globalised nature and context of business which operate in the Indian economy, a contemporary business requirement across sectors is the need for managers who have exposure and skills that span diverse cultures. Dealing with these challenges requires an expanded horizon of management thinking and leadership which can be achieved through continuous improvement and up gradation of capabilities, skills and changes in mindset.
The NOIDA Campus mission states, in part, its dedication to the "continuing excellence of professional managers and entrepreneurs, by providing a foundation of learning, personal growth and social responsibility to adapt to the changing business realities and prepare them for the challenges of contemporary management careers...". The distinctive positioning of Noida Campus as a leader in executive education is to be accomplished through long term executive education programs.
In pursuance of the above mission, the third, full time, one-year residential executive programme would be launched in April 2010 at the Indian Institute of Management Lucknow (NOIDA). The International Programme in Management for Executives, is designed for mid/senior level professionals, to prepare them for leadership roles. The programme is designed to develop business education that is grounded in the Indian and international business environment. It aims at accelerating understanding of business at functional and strategic levels to prepare students to manage enterprises engaged in global business. The curriculum would focus on a strategic understanding of business, rooted in practical skill development through action learning projects and industry interface. A core component of the programme is an international module of 3- 4 weeks at one of our partner institutes located in Europe / East Asia which will provide students the opportunity for an international learning experience to equip them with the knowledge and perspective relevant to current global business issues. The programme would be rigorous and rewarding. It would provide an opportunity for personal development and professional growth through inquiry and insight in an interactive learning environment. Noida being the hub of commercial and industrial activity, the locational advantage of the IIM Lucknow at Noida would also extend to the learning process where industry related assignments form an integral part of the course curriculum. The delivery would be oriented towards best practices, an integrated strategic perspective, project work and constant engagement with industry.
The Corporate Resource Centre of the Institute would facilitate in providing placement services for non-sponsored students.
On successful completion of the course, students would be awarded the Post Graduate Diploma in Management for Executives.
