The two-year, full-time, residential Post Graduate Programme, leading up to a Post Graduate Diploma in Management, designed to equip students to take on leadership roles in an increasingly complex and dynamic global scenario.
The PGP lasts six trimesters, spread over two years, with a summer project between the two years. As an autonomous Central Educational Institution of the Department of Higher Education, Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India, IIMB awards graduating PGP students with a Post Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM), equivalent to an MBA degree.
The programme lays the foundation for conceptual and analytical reasoning, and gives the students an insight into the dynamics of the business environment. It revolves around the principle that world-class business leaders are not mass-produced; they are nurtured and developed with personalised care and attention in small teams, and in a practical, application-oriented, user-friendly environment. Hence, admissions to this programme stand at around 400.
