Comprehensive course analysis
Who should attend
The programme is designed for the first-time managers, with 4-7 years of post-qualification experience, driven by a keen desire to learn, understand and apply the principles of management. Engineers and managers, in a technical role, aspiring to step into a techno-commercial role or taking up an entrepreneurial venture will benefit from the programme.
Participants should have a bachelor’s degree in Engineering/ Science/ Commerce / Arts. Work experience of at least 4 years will be preferred. Given the long duration nature of the programme, organisational sponsorship is encouraged but it is not a must.
This being an online programme, participants must be equipped with the requisite level of Internet connectivity, on a 3 GB daily plan. You will be required to turn your video on when attending live, online webinars. Computers must be of ecent vintage and must have the latest version of MS-Office installed in it. We recommend laptop models with 8 GB RAM and at least 50 GB of free storage. From time to time, we will suggest installing software packages, most of which are free and open source. We strongly recommend using personal laptops that meet the specifications, without having to worry about restrictions on office issued laptops.
