Executive Education : Transforming to Lead
It was a deliberate decision to begin the academic activities at IIMA with an Executive Education Programme (EEP). The first set of executive courses designed, developed, and offered by IIMA have now become popular as the 3-Tier Programmes (3TP)
. Since then, IIMA has been constantly adding to the list of EEPs. For the academic year June 2014 - May 2015, around 80 EEPs
have been planned including a few new programmes. This list includes the flagship EEPs such as:
- 3TP Emerging Leaders Programme
- 3TP Senior Leaders Programme
- 3TP for Top Management
- Transforming Small & Medium Enterprises
These EEPs known as General Management Programmes (GMPs)
are designed with the objective of providing insights into managerial concepts and techniques relevant for formulating and implementing strategies in functional areas and an overall perspective for decision-making by integrating functional and general management approaches.
Besides GMPs, the Institute’s EEPs offered as open enrolment programmes
are designed to address specialized needs in areas such as business policy, communication, finance and accounting, marketing, organizational behaviour, personnel and industrial relations, production and quantitative methods, computers and information systems, agriculture, public systems, health, and education. These EEPs enable participants to gain insights into managerial concepts and techniques for formulating and implementing strategies and enhance their overall perspective for effective managerial decision-making.
In response to the growing challenges of a globalized world, the Institute conducts long duration General Management Programme, Retail Management Programme, Strategic HRM Programme, and Strategic Supply Chain Management Programme for working executives based at Dubai.
At IIMA, it is a tradition to constantly update the course content, revise the course design, and experiment with innovative pedagogy. Around 100 full-time faculty
at IIMA continuously attempt to integrate research, teaching, and applied work. Pedagogical tools
create a participative learning environment. While the case method is the major tool, it is supplemented by group exercises, computer-based simulation games, lecture-cum-discussions, role plays, project work, and presentations by participants.
The response of the corporate, government, and non-government sectors to EEPs has been very encouraging. Over the years, around 53,000 managers
have benefited from more than 1560 EEPs conducted by IIMA.
