"For me, PGPX is the watershed that changed the course of my professional life – from a civil servant to an executive in private sector to an entrepreneur. Without PGPX midwifing it, this transformation would have been impossible. I'm ever grateful to IIMA and to the program"

"One year of PGPX completely transformed my career. The course carefully knits together all aspects of business and general management, enabling you to inter-link strategy, corporate finance, marketing and a lot more. These are all very essential components of business decision-making. My view has widened and become holistic now. I changed from a supply chain professional to a strategy and market development manager and I couldn't have done justice to my new role without PGPX."

"With almost 15 years of prior managerial experience already, my objective was to build a theoretical foundation to experiential learnings, and build strategic skills & perspective. The program is intensive with an international perspective, the Case method is very effective, faculty are world-class, and learning's are of a very high level. One of the unplanned benefits of the program has been that my business intuition has become more well developed, thereby enhancing the skill of anticipating events which can impact business."

"The Social sector in India is undergoing a transition from traditional organizations run by gut and feel-good, to more evidence-based and systematic organisations. Being part of the sector at this point of inflection, I joined the PGPX program to gain knowledge in the fields of Operations, Finance, Economics among others; hone my skills in data interpretation and analysis, and essentially complement my on-ground sector experience in the field of education. The program gave me exactly what I had wanted, if not more. I was exposed to wonderful fellow-learners, inspiring professors, interesting courses and took back the enviable tag of an IIMA alumnus."
Megha Srinivasan, PGPX 2017-18

"The special services motto ‘Men apart, every man an emperor’ could well be used to describe the participants and faculty at PGPX. It was a treat to study with and to be taught by some of the most brilliant, experienced and diverse minds in the country - in fact, the whole world. The famous IIM-A rigor, pedagogy and the tough grind of a year ensures that the end product is a quality Swiss watch which needs no advertising. The PGPX program is a positive life changing experience."
