Message from the Desk of Dean (Executive Education)

Welcome to IIM Calcutta Executive Education!

IIM Calcutta has been a pioneer in the field of executive education, particularly in the space of technology-driven executive education in the online mode both through state-of-the-art studio classrooms across the length and breadth of the country as well as abroad and in the direct-to-device (D2D) format. Over the past two decades or so, the portfolio of our Executive Education has grown enormously to cater to the diverse needs of working professionals. During 2023-24, we had around 7500 participants enrolled in various programmes offered by the Institute.  

At IIMC Executive Education, we attempt to calibrate our programmes to the changing dynamics of national and global economies. We continuously respond to societal needs by offering new programmes in the fields of general management as well as cutting-edge functional and niche areas. The central pillar of our programmes is the high-quality academic resources of our faculty and reputed practitioners from the world of business. Our pedagogic methods take on board the work experiences of the participants, and our teaching modules are designed to enhance participant-centred learning.  

The IIM Calcutta Executive Education has also made significant contributions to the capacity-building initiatives of the Government of India and various state governments through conducting multiple programmes such as the “Nurturing Future Leadership Programme” for Centrally-Funded Higher Educational Institutions, Project Management, Water Management, Defence Procurement, Public Service Management, to mention a few.

Over the years, these programmes have benefitted thousands of participants in achieving their professional goals and fulfilling their aspirations. They are now the proud alumni of IIMC Executive Education. A visit to our Management Development Centre (MDC) at IIM Calcutta is in itself a memorable event for our participants as they experience the serene campus life with its bountiful flora and fauna.   

I welcome you once again and encourage you to see for yourself if one of our programmes suits your management development expectations.

Enjoy Learning!
