Chairperson's Message

Welcome to PGPX

To fulfill the unmet need of experienced managers, Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad (IIMA) launched the one-year full time residential programme in management in 2006. The programme aims for developing executives to accelerate their career path and assume leadership roles.

Business environment has been changing rapidly globally. This general management programme enables practicing executives respond effectively to those changes. The customized segments of the programme ensure that the students are more than adequately equipped and empowered with knowledge and skill sets to attain leadership positions and add value to their organizations through complex situations.

Students for this programme are selected through a rigorous internationally conducted admission process. The current fourteenth-batch of students carries an average GMAT score of around 702. The average experience of the batch is more than 8.5 years in a variety of sectors. The class represents a diverse range of industries including Academics and Education, Aerospace and Aviation , Agriculture, Consulting and Professional Services, Defence and Security, Energy and Power, Financial Services, FMCG, Food & Food Processing, Govt. Service and Public Sector Enterprise, Healthcare, Infrastructure, IT & IT Services, Manufacturing, Media and Entertainment, NGO, Retail, Shipping and Telecom and many others. The profile of the students on this programme is one of the best in the world.

The programme is globally known for intellectual rigor of IIMA. The design of the programme based on a vigorous debate among the industry leaders from public and private sector organizations and a fifteen member strong IIMA faculty, is quite unique in the world. It is no surprise that programme is consistently rated among top-5 in the world by Financial Times for career progress.

The batches that have graduated have been welcomed by corporate houses in need of management talent at senior levels – from senior managers and consultants to general managers and CXOs. This reinforces our original belief that a programme was needed to add value to growing organizations all across the world at the middle and senior management levels.

As Chairperson of the programme, I am more than convinced that graduates of the PGPX will add tremendous value to the organizations that they choose to go to and contribute for the development of the nation.
