“With its array of eminent and adept Professors from various fields, PGPM Flex offers what every aspiring candidate would look for in a Management Program – a sound curriculum, flexible schedule and great networking. We not only get to understand the underlying idea behind each concept but are also able to apply it in real-life scenarios depending on the time and effort one invests on the learning. I personally see benefit in the class-takeaways, the diverse network of people with whom I get to interact since these help me think beyond my horizon. The greatest benefit is the flexibility it offers - one gets to continue building the career too because of its meaningfully spaced weekend schedule.”

"PGPM Flex has truly been a turning point experience in my life. With the classes every alternate weekend, it has provided the flexibility and yet has the rigor of a full time Programme. Taught by some of the best faculty from around the world, the intricacies in business management couldn't have been put any simpler. The pre-reads and case analysis not only helped me view business situations from different perspective, but also pushed me to over-deliver due to high expectations from the faculty. The resulting stress has only made me stronger and tougher to handle similar such demands of the business environment. It has been an intense emotional journey, providing a perfect platform to develop both intellectual and inter-relationship skills. One also gets an opportunity to meet exceptional people who will stand by ones side throughout the challenges of the program."

"Having recently completed the PGPM Flex, I can say with immense pride and satisfaction that I have truly been enriched with knowledge from the Programme. I must also mention that in terms of curriculum or in terms of the faculty handling the courses, there has absolutely been no disparity between the full time and the weekend Programmes… Finally, a healthy peer group from a wide gamut of industries with varying years of experience make this Programme a truly must do for any working professional who aspires to get a meaningful MBA education.

"Joining PGPM Flex was one of the best decisions of my life. It helped me to peruse an excellent management education along with my professional aspirations. The specialty of PGPM Flex is that it is very similar to the flagship one year PGPM program with same faculty, curriculum and course credits…..

“Our classroom discussions exposed many different perspectives; I learned as much from the discussions as from the written material. Beyond the content, I learned a lot just from the way the professors taught, from their style of leadership and of coaching and teaching— things we all have to do as leaders. The biggest merit of this program was the classroom diversity. Our group had people from multiple domains. The big mix made it interesting and fun. Through this mind-opening experience, I believe I am now a broader thinker, more open to new ideas and think out of the box. Yes, I made my company to diversify from an Automobile into an Aerospace company, which I am heading right now. ”

“Until PGPM Flex happened, I was purely an Oral & Maxillofacial surgeon specializing in facial deformities correction, with not a clue on capital management and market analysis. The renowned faculty at Great Lakes combined with the pedagogic learning has moulded me into a smarter professional with the ability to analyze business options and make informed decisions on my entrepreneurial ventures, also enhancing my personal psychograph in the process.”
