PG Programme in Infrastructure Management (PGPIM) 2009

Post Graduate Programme in Infrastructure Management (PGPIM)
PGPIM is a One-Year, full time, residential, Post Graduate Programme in Infrastructure Management.
PGPIM, a unique programme in Infrastructure Management, is being launched from September, 2009.

Many European Business Schools and some American Business Schools have been offering a One-Year full time Executive MBA Programme for over two decades now. Until recently, the Business Schools in India were offering only Two-Year MBA Programmes. However, in recent years, several reputed Indian Business Schools have also launched One-Year Post Graduate Programmes and many of these programmes are very well received by both participants as well as recruiters.

However, all One-Year programmes currently being offered by Indian Business Schools are essentially General Management Programmes. Some Business Schools offer One-Year programmes with specialization in either Ports & Shipping, or Oil & Gas, but no reputed foreign or Indian Business School offers full time One-Year Programme covering the entire spectrum of infrastructure and allied sectors. PGPIM aims at filling this gap.

The programme is meant for bright & young executives with significant work experience. The candidate should have
A Bachelor’s degree in any discipline
