Post Graduate Program in Management - Flex

The PGPM Flex is a rigorous, fully mentored holistic executive - weekend MBA program with classroom learning on alternate weekends which takes the work experience of the participants into consideration and facilitates their understanding of the interaction between the various functional areas of a business system. The program provides a cross-industry peer environment inside the classroom for synergistic learning with top faculty from the Great Lakes faculty pool and visiting faculty from industry and academia. Like the one year full-time PGPM program, PGPM Flex also emphasizes on skill development, teamwork, inclusivity principles and value-based management. These add on to the program-long schedule of group and executive coaching, 360-degree assessments and team activities, and a fully-mentored 6-credit dissertation work throughout the second year, designed to unleash the leadership potential in the participants and transform them into “Business Ready Managers”.
