36th Faculty Development Programme in Management
A Programme for Management Teachers
June 09 – September 27, 2014
INDIAN INSTITUTE OF MANAGEMENT, AHMEDABAD, INDIA
The Faculty Development Programme (FDP) of the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad, India (IIMA) aims at the professional development of faculty members of institutions of management education. The first FDP was offered in 1979. Over the years, the FDP has developed a strong reputation for excellence in the professional development of management educators. IIMA is now pleased to announce its 36th Faculty Development Programme, which will be offered from June 09 to September 27, 2014.
The major focus of the FDP is on upgrading the teaching, training, and research skills of management teachers—especially those teachers who have not had an opportunity to acquaint themselves with recent developments in teaching and research methods. The programme enables participants to develop competence in general management education as well as in management research and pedagogy.
The FDP is designed for management teachers and researchers working in management schools, universities, colleges and professional institutes which teach management and allied subjects like economics, statistics, computer applications, commerce, banking, sociology and labour relations.
Participants should have post-graduate level teaching experience in management or research experience of at least two years. Preference will be given to participants less than 45 years of age. Past experience indicates that participants in the early stages of their teaching or research careers benefit most. Since the FDP is offered in the English language, participants are expected to be fluent in English. Considerations for selecting participants include teaching and/or research experience, level of preparedness for the programme as indicated by educational qualifications, and statements of purpose and anticipated benefits to sponsors (see the application form).
The programme is structured around the following components:
1. Courses in the area of general management (Introductory and Integrative)
2. Management discipline-related courses (e.g., Understanding Organizational Behaviour, Economics, and Information Technology for Management)
3. Courses in functional areas of management (e.g., Accounting and Finance, Human Resources, Marketing, and Operations)
4. Academic skill-related courses (e.g., Research Methods, Statistical Analysis, Communication for Management Teachers, Case Method in Management Education)
The programme fee including tuition fees, cost of course materials, IIMA alumni fee, lodging and boarding, and limited medical insurance for hospitalization in case of emergency, is Rs. 1,67,500 (Rupees One lakh and sixty seven thousand five hundred only) for participants from India, Nepal and Bhutan. Electricity charges for accommodation are to be borne by the participants on the basis of actual consumption; the fee for participants from other countries and non-resident Indians is US$ 3,000.
