IGNOU Institute for Competency Advancement of Teachers (i-CAT) offers admission in post graduate diploma in higher education management (PGDHEM) programme. The centres are in Cochin and Guwahati. The Programme is useful for academics, academic administrators, people in managerial/ leadership positions at higher education institutions, civil servants etc. who have long been confined to academic positions and most often they have to learn the issues of management of higher education on the job itself. IGNOU has conceptualised a new method suitable for higher education professionals, through this programme. The idea is to provide learning and capacity building of higher education professional managers with the skills necessary to be successful in the new working ethos and also to impart managerial skills of higher educational institutional management, in terms of campus building/infrastructural resource management, resource generation, financial management, personnel management (faculty quality upgradation, motivation, human relations, general administration) and technology management in Higher Education.
