Message from Program Director
What a person with some work experience would do if (s)he wants to build a career by pursuing management education without leaving the current job? Obviously, one would look for an executive management education program that suits one’s convenience on the one hand and work pressure on the other. For such aspiring young executives, eight years ago, Great Lakes had launched this PGPM Flex programme.
This AMBA-accredited programme is in line with our flagship one-year full-time Post Graduate Programme in Management (PGPM) on a flexible mode wherein participants – while being on their job – attend classes on alternate weekends for two years. For the convenience of the participants, we have created state-of-the-art awesome classrooms at our City Office in Prince Infocity, Rajiv Gandhi Salai (OMR).
Recently, the curriculum is benchmarked against the best within the country and abroad. Cutting edge courses such as Business Analytics, Strategic Cost & Profitability Management, Design Thinking & Innovation, and Business Strategy Simulation form part of the core curriculum besides offering various elective courses in three major specializations: Finance, Marketing and Operations.
With six batches successfully graduated, we do have a strong and committed alumni base of over 220. Many alumni, post their graduation, progressed so well in their careers, and some of them are elevated to the position of Business Heads, Chief Operating Officers, Chief Executive Officers and the like. Having gained knowledge and business acumen, a few of them have become successful entrepreneurs as well.
Now, we are opening our admissions for Batch 9 (2018-20) and planning to commence the session in August 2018. We welcome you all to Great Lakes to fulfil your aspirations and move ahead in your careers.
Best Wishes. S Elankumaran
Director – PGPM
