The programme is offered on a face-to-face mode at its classrooms in Kochi campus. The learning experience in this programme is also enriched through its diverse participant profile in terms of industry and functional experiences. The peer interactions enables richer in-class and out of class experiences. The programme design, class timings and course structure are made keeping in mind the personal, professional and career progression challenges faced by such professionals. The programme is designed and delivered in such a manner that it sharpens managerial skills, deepens industry insights, and develops richer perspectives. The program follows a pedagogy that blends experiential and participative learning modes like simulations, business case studies and project work along with traditional lecture modes. Case study forms a major part of the curriculum, helping the participants to analyze real life experiences in the class room and helps them grapple with exactly the same kind of situations, decisions and dilemmas managers confront during their daily work routines. The academic performance of a participant in each course is assessed through a mix of components such as Assignments, Quizzes, Class Participation, Project Work, End-Term Examination and any other component as suitably decided by the Instructor. The participants will have access to IIMK Library at Kochi as well as e-library in Kozhikode. They are enrolled to a Learning Management Portal to facilitate off the class learning.
