Jamshedpur : Xavier School of Management ( XLRI) has announced admission to the Postgraduate Diploma in Management (PGDM) for Working Executives & Business Owners for the batch 2017 to 2020. This Three-Year Part-Time Weekend Program, approved by AICTE, imparts the rigor of a full-time programme through 900 + hours of class room interactions.
Spreading over three academic years, the programme has been designed to accommodate working professionals to pursue the course without hindering their professional engagements. The program has been designed with a rich mix of core courses, elective courses, and dissertations to provide a holistic approach to both practical and conceptual aspects of management domains. Further, the course structures and choice of pedagogical approaches provide multiple opportunities for peer learning and application of knowledge to real-life business situations.
“The programme allows working professionals, who are willing to stretch out a bit, to acquire the highest quality management education while continuing with their current work. It has been exclusively designed to facilitate two-way learning; thus, while participating in the programme, the students can get many opportunities to apply the conceptual insights gained in the classroom to their respective workplace on a day-to-day basis,” said Fr. E Abraham S.J., Director of XLRI.
The classes are to be held at XLRI Campus, Jamshedpur on the weekends to accommodate the time constraints of students who are working professionals. The classes will be scheduled to start from 12:00 Noon on Saturday and end by 16:15 hours on Sunday to allow students from outside Jamshedpur to attend the program. The virtual classroom sessions shall be delivered over a direct-to-desktop mode and shall normally be around 25% of the total sessions for core courses only.
