Executive Programme in Global Business Management (EPGBM)
The context of business in today’s world is unavoidably global. Every product or service has some element of globalization that has touched it at some stage or the other, so much so that it is often challenging to identify a “purely domestic” product or service that does not rely on some input of a global nature. Globalization refers to the broad phenomenon wherein not only are national economies across the world merging into an interdependent and integrated global economic system through a decline in cross-border barriers to trade, but also to the phenomenon of shrinking distances in respect of languages, cultures and timezones through improvements in technology and transportation. No manager in today’s business context can afford to remain oblivious to this undeniable reality.
The Executive Programme in Global Business Management is designed to impart both knowledge and skills that enable managers to equip themselves to become successful in the global business arena. The 14th edition of this successful program is a significantly revamped version presented by IIM Calcutta. The program has been redesigned to keep up with the latest content in global business management courses worldwide, while also addressing contemporary issues in the Indian business context. The revised program is much shorter and redesigned to maintain a crisp focus on global business strategies, global business management concepts, and skills for cultivating a global mindset in the organization for business integration and improved responsiveness.
Managers of multinational companies currently working in the Indian space as well as Indian companies looking to expand their business globally would find this program relevant. Early to middle level managers who are beginning to encounter the challenges of globalization in their individual roles, teams and businesses, and seeking conceptual understanding, illustrative cases, and practical frameworks that can be applied for solutions to some grappling issues will find this program highly educative.
The EPGBM is a management programme offered by IIM Calcutta in the online education domain, but is distinct from a general management program as it first builds the foundations of general management in all disciplines through an introductory module, and is then followed by three highly focused modules on global business strategies, global management concepts and skill-building towards cultivating a global mindset among its participants. In addition, a special module by a subject matter expert is envisaged.
Managers from MNCs currently working in Indian space as well as those working in Indian companies looking to expand their business globally, including their export departments, are expected to find this particularly suitable. The program addresses issues pertaining to globalization at the business, team and individual levels.
The EPGBM is in its 14th edition and has been significantly revamped to meet the needs of the current day global context in a very focused manner and be on par with the best of international programmes on global business management.
The Program is best suited for working professionals with a minimum of 2 years of experience. Early to mid-career professionals in particular would benefit from the program.
