Post Graduate Program in Management - Flex

PGPM Flex is aimed at ambitious, goal-oriented, career-focused working professionals with typically 2 to 10 years of work experience, on the lookout for their career progression. The program allows executives to pursue a world class management program while providing them the flexibility of continuing their work and helps them leverage the classroom learning in their professional roles. You could be a support staff in IT, PR, Admissions, Payrolls, Merchandising, etc. You could also be an entrepreneur who has inherited the family business or a start-up. Likewise, you could be a professional such as a lawyer, doctor, model, actor, architect, or a teacher. You could be self-sponsored or company-sponsored from private or public sector organizations.

The PGPM Flex is a rigorous, fully mentored holistic 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”.
