IIM Udaipur recently launched the Post Graduate Diploma in Business Administration for Working Executives or PGDBA-WE program. It is a 20-month PG degree in Business Administration suitable for working executives, who have at least three years of full-time post-qualification work experience.
Taught by faculties of IIM Udaipur, the course aims to help professionals improve their performance and career growth by laying a solid foundation and deep understanding of business management, the institute claims. The program offers weekend classes in an online format and two 1-week modules on campus.
The selection was determined by scores obtained in GMAT, GRE or CAT or in the survey conducted by IIM Udaipur, as well as performance in a personal interview. The curriculum lays a strong foundation in management basics and electives, the institute says. The classroom sessions use a case-based learning approach, bringing real-life situations into the classroom and encouraging students to actively participate in their learning process.
The course includes seminars, simulations, games, role plays, guest lectures and group activities. Participants must adapt, negotiate and solve problems while sharpening their interpersonal and communication skills.
