Going by their job profiles, professions and experience, these students form a diverse group of experienced professionals. IIM-V launched the third batch of the two-year postgraduate programme for experienced professionals (PGPEx), leading to the award of the MBA degree of the IIM-V, on Saturday. The intake has crossed the 30-mark.According to IIM-V officials, the institute of national importance has become a go-to destination for the professionals, mostly in their mid-careers, to accelerate their career progression, hone skill sets/knowledge, and develop network, critical-thinking capacities and decision-making abilities through the executive MBA programme. As Visakhapatnam is endowed with several PSUs, premier organisations and private companies, IIM-V is witnessing hundreds of applications for the programme every year.
Additional secretary, union ministry of skill development & entrepreneurship, Juthika Patankar, who attended the virtual launch event as the chief guest, spoke on the theme of ‘great expectations’. “We need to create and enforce expectations in the community that the people are entitled to receive and get good services. As part of their corporate social responsibility work, the private sector companies and PSUs could actually think of conducting quality capacity building programmes to the government employees to enable them to join the dots. This can greatly refresh the views of government employees and would make them much more receptive to new innovations and activities of other organisations for better service delivery and implementation of programmes,” said Juthika Patankar.
Welcoming the third batch of experienced professionals, IIM-V director Prof M Chandrasekhar said that the participants will stand to benefit immensely from the unique strengths of the Institute in knowledge resources and infrastructure. “The Institute is known for its impactful learning outcomes, since it builds system skills, soft skills, and social skills in the cohort as a judicious amalgam to broaden their horizon and world-view. This is sure to reflect in their enhanced efficiency and effectiveness at their workplace,” said Prof Chandrasekhar.
Quoting American actor Will Rogers, Prof Chandrasekhar told the students that everybody is ignorant, only on different subjects. “It is the responsibility of the institute to make the students well-rounded professionals in the management domain,” said Prof Chandrasekhar.
