2012 Executive Post Graduate Programme in Management (EPGP)

Understanding and implenting global pratices

no barriers...


the epgp experience at iim indore

The hunger for knowledge knows no barriers. An insatiable process that begins at the womb and continues through life. The EPGP batch at IIM Indore is made up of professionals drawn from diverse corporate corridors. But there’s one attribute that binds them together: the hunger for oven-fresh professional skills. It’s this appetite for learning that has made them challenge the boundaries and reinvigorate their skill set. The EPGP Programme at IIM Indore is designed to meet the quest to know beyond what is known. It is custom made for professionals who want to top their existing skill set in a chosen professional stream with knowledge in other areas that expands their perspective. The one-year programme is rigorous in its design and implementation. The emphasis is to arm the participants with not just deep strategic understanding but also the ability to implement those strategies successfully. The programme draws on material that’s proven best anywhere in the world of business studies and marries itself to real life scenarios. This two-pronged approach

sharpens critical thinking of the participants, forcing them to find their way through newer and newer variations of theoretical models and practical roadblocks. The programme prepares the participants to be far more valuable than great managers. It pushes them to be proactive thinkers and leaders before anything else. Through exposure to all the pillars that support today’s corporate architecture, it provides the participants with an intellectual discipline that doesn’t only respond when a problem shows up but is at work all the time – making deductions, identifying patterns, creating frameworks. The programme focuses on the human side of business as well. Modules on ethics, culture, philosophy, behaviour etc. teach an enriched and participative managerial style that marks the way forward for today’s businesses and business professionals.

the centre of intellect at the crest of excellence

Empowering management education in central India, IIM Indore has proven itself as a leader in the field of management and governance. The numerous achievements of the young institute can be attributed to a drive for excellence, focus on innovation and strong relationships with the industry & local community. The EPGP offers the participants a nurturing so intense that it stimulates in each individual a focused thought process and a passion to excel. The rigour and urgency in every minute of the programme transforms the participants into business leaders who can manage and remodel complex business situations. Brimming with confidence yet personifying humility, every participant practices teamwork and openness to reason. With disciplined persistence the participants scale new tasks as they ready themselves for challenging business roles.

a message from the director’s desk

I am pleased to introduce the third batch of EPGP participants of IIM Indore. IIM Indore was established in 1996 by Government of India in collaboration with Government of Madhya Pradesh. Over a period of time, it has gained the reputation of the fastest growing IIM in the country. We have launched our one year full time Executive Post Graduate Program (EPGP) in 2009. The third batch of this program would be graduating in July 2012. The EPGP program at IIM Indore is aimed at young men and women who have specific work experience of five years and are looking for better career opportunities by formally training them with a rigorous professional management education. In order to ensure quality orientation and adequate interaction from the participants, we have restricted the batch size to 45. Apart from the academic rigour that is provided by IIM Indore, the EPGP participants also benefit immensely by a six week international exposure at Katz Graduate School of Business in University of Pittsburgh, USA. They use this opportunity to interact with the practicing community in the US context. The selectivity of candidates by IIM Indore, the academic rigour in the design of the program and the precision in its delivery with a collaboration aimed to provide a global focus would surely enable these participants to be outstanding managers in the challenging environments. The fact that they have significant work experience would be an added advantage for them in adopting the culture and the context of the organizations in which they would seek to work. As in the past, I am sure you will take advantage of the rich and varied talent pool available in IIM Indore for the professional needs of your organization.

a word

from the programme chair I have immense pleasure in presenting to you the 2011-12 batch of the Executive Post Graduate Programme (EPGP) at IIM Indore. One avowed objective of the programme is to attract talent from various industries and the profile of these participants fulfills the goal. They come from industries as different as FMCG, IT & ITES, power, manufacturing, automobile, finance, media and advertising, telecommunication, pharmaceutical & healthcare and biotech to name just a few. All of them have had impressive professional trajectories owing to their stints with leading companies. As EPGP aims to provide incremental knowledge to a pool of working managers, the pedagogy leans towards deductive, execution-centric thinking without losing focus on theoretical principles. The curriculum is not only rigorous, in-depth and practical but it has also been aligned to the needs of the industry. It instills into the participants the analytical and decision-making skills essential for effective leadership in a dynamic business environment. In step with its goals, the programme approach is far more dimensional. It involves discussions on the newer threads in management curriculum like philosophy, culture, ethics and leadership in addition to the necessary business areas of strategy, finance, marketing, economics, human resource etc. A module at the Katz Business School under the University of Pittsburgh helps the participants turn their professional horizon truly global. I am sure when the participants of this batch go out in the industry they will bring immense value to any organisation. Their experience in an environment that fuels original thinking will help them in providing unique directions to corporations. Their stint in a system that places unrelenting emphasis on academic excellence will make them resilient. I am sure that this bunch will add immense value to the human resource pool of leading edge organisations.
