Management education draws heavily from scientific methods of fact-finding in controlled environments. In reality, business is often done in environments in which judgments are made with messy, incomplete, and incoherent data. The scientific method of teaching and learning alone is not sufficient for preparing future managers. There is a dire need for an alternative form of management education.
In line with the vision to innovate and excel in business education, Indian Institute of Management Kozhikode is introducing an innovative Post Graduate Programme in Liberal Studies & Management (PGP-LSM). It is a two-year full-time Masters level program designed to integrate and equip participants to pursue careers in managerial roles in marketing, human resource management, media, social enterprise, hospitality, healthcare or in other people facing roles. These are the roles that require a holistic perspective and ‘Diversity of thoughts’ which PGP-LSM aims to develop.
PGP-LSM is a unique offering, with the primary objective to prepare future managers by enabling them to acquire emotional, cultural, and creative intelligence.
