Hughes Global Education India and XLRI, Jamshedpur Collaborate to Launch Direct to Desktop Executive Development Management Programmes for Working Professionals

Hughes Global Education India Ltd. (HGEIL), the education business Subsidiary of Hughes Communication India Ltd (HCIL) and XLRI- Xavier School of Management, one of India’s premier B-Schools have joined hands to launch ‘Direct to Desktop’ Executive Development Programmes for working professionals and self-employed.

Currently only two short duration e-MDP courses are being offered under this Direct to Desktop (D2D) programme - Executive Development Programs in Human Resources Development (EDPHRD) and Executive Development Program in Strategic Management (EDPSM).

The Executive Development Programs in Human Resources Development (EDPHRD) Programme aims at providing basic knowledge and better understanding of HRD theory and practices for HR/HRD professionals and line managers who are associated with HRD activities in their respective organizations. The last date of application for the course is 31st January, 2017.

The Executive Development Program in Strategic Management (EDPSM) Programme intends to explicate the role of industry analysis, innovation focus and resource based thinking in strategizing for growth. Many leaders and managers implicitly use the resource based logic in making strategic decisions. The last date of application for the course is 27th February, 2017.

The fees for both the courses amount to Rs. 77,000 + taxes payable in two installments.

Prof. Ram Kumar Kakani, Associate Dean (VIL), XLRI commented, “XLRI’s Virtual Interactive Learning Programmes have been designed for Working Executives to upgrade their business acumen, hone their managerial skills that would add value to them personally as well as professionally in their careers without leaving their jobs, cities and families. HGEIL is one of our existing technical partners. By leveraging the complimentary capabilities of each other, we look forward to successfully delivering high quality Programs to working professionals.”

A spokesperson from Hughes Global Education India Ltd. (HGEIL) commented, “Direct to Desktop study has now-a-days been quite familiar in the education industry. It has eased the trouble of travelling to a specific study center. Students can now attend class sitting at their home on their PC/Laptop using broadband connection. Live classroom sessions enable the students to interact with the faculty and peers. HGEIL’s collaboration with XLRI will help us offer this proposition to the appropriate learners.”
