It is deemed as an autonomous university that offers multiple programs related to management and technology, to the interested and capable students. The institute has earned AACSB accreditation and is consistently ranked among the best business schools of India. Apart from the main IMT campus at Ghaziabad, there are 3 more IMT campuses situated at Dubai, Hyderabad and Nagpur respectively.

IMT offers multiple programs at the postgraduate level suiting students with all kinds of backgrounds and requirements. Here in this short article will provide you with a brief overview of all the PGDM courses offered at this institute.

This is a 2 year full time residential program in business management which is AACSB accredited, AICTE approved and is considered equivalent to an MBA degree.

Post Graduate Diploma in Management, Dual Country Program (PGDM DCP)

This is a 2 year full time dual country residential program in business management that is AACSB accredited and AICTE approved. It has been created keeping in mind the fact that IMT graduates are increasingly assuming international level roles, wherein they are expected to work alongside and perform amongst people of all nationalities. The conventional MBA/PGDM programs aren’t able to equip students with the required cross-cultural skills and exposure, to perform in such environments.

This is where IMT’s Dual Country Program proves to be of great help. Rather than offering only short-term international exchange to the students, this program enables them to have a year-long intensive international exposure. The students are not just acquainted with the global way of living, but are able to work in an extremely dynamic marketplace and a multicultural environment. They not just learn but master the ropes of the International business environments. The program has been strategically anchored around the Dubai (UAE) region, which is widely considered the hub for top rated service businesses.

The students spend the first year of the program in Dubai, with regular beyond-the-classroom engagements. They are encouraged as well as provided various opportunities to complete their summer internship assignments in the Middle East only, after the completion of the first year.

Post Graduate Diploma in Management, Executive (PGDM Executive)

This is a 15 month long full-time accelerated residential MBA program targeted at experienced and high-performing executives. It is AACSB accredited and AICTE approved. The aim of this program is to groom experienced executives who can assume general management roles with service focus and international orientation.

The course curriculum is very contemporary in nature comprising of 6 phases – Foundation, Functional, Internationalization, Customization, Integration and Dissertation. One can specialize in areas like Supply Chain Management, Operations, Human Resources, Information Management and Marketing Analytics. The program follows the philosophy ‘Knowing by Doing’ and hence its architecture is outcome-centered, implemented through various simulations, workshops, experiential learning social emergence, field projects and courses.

The students get a global perspective through close associations with leading business schools of the world. The program includes a 4 to 6 week long Global Career Accelerator (GCA) at one of the European partners of the institute.

Post Graduate Diploma in Management, Part Time (PGDM Part Time)

A 3 year part-time MBA program, this one is targeted at working professionals who are keen on making a jump in their careers, but would like to pursue MBA without the need of parting with their job. Like the other PGDM programs offered by the institute, PGDM Part Time is also AACSB accredited and AICTE approved.

It’s important to note here that this is not a correspondence or a long-distance program as there are regular weekly classroom interactions held at the IMT Ghaziabad campus. Apart from the working executives, it’s a fairly useful course for professionals and entrepreneurs too. PGDM Part Time of IMT is aimed at imparting communication, conceptual, management and business skills in the students, with a focus on developing future business leaders. Counted amongst the oldest MBA programs for working professionals in the Delhi NCR region, it’s also the only such AACSB accredited program for working professionals in the area.
