Executive Post Graduate Programme in Management (EPGP)

The Executive Post Graduate Programme in Management (EPGP) is an intensive one-year residential program of IIM Indore. Specially designed to enhance knowledge, skills and capabilities essential for managing and leading organizations, the programme combines skill building with exploration of good management practices. In addition to a comprehensive functional core module, there are elective courses aligned with the industry concentration identified for the programme such as Analytics, BFSI, e-Commerce etc.

The EPGP is designed keeping in mind the following value propositions:

(a) The courses should leverage the experience of the participants.
(b) The courses should be aligned with the industry concentration being identified for EPGP.
(c) The core courses should provide a general management perspective at an elevated pitch compared to the PGP program.

Programme details
The EPGP is structured to prepare executives for transformational leadership positions. During the intense one-year programme, they will work towards developing a deeper understanding of various facets of management and hone their managerial skills. The programme is spread over five academic terms in IIM Indore campus and one International Immersion term abroad. The first three terms (mostly composed of core courses) focus on laying the foundation for the specialisation through a bundle of electives offered in the other terms. The last two terms are mostly electives and other experiential learning. An international module provides an opportunity to develop an understanding of the global business environment and an ability to operate in a multicultural environment.
