The Post Graduate Certificate in General Management (PGCGM) aims at developing competence in theoretical foundations of management, and simultaneously, seeks to inculcate a broad-based understanding of how the theories of management should be applied to managerial problems. The course is developed in consultation with different academic groups within IIMC and offers a holistic understanding of management practice. Designed as a part-time program and delivered through the direct-to-device mode, PGCGM provides learners the opportunity to develop applied competencies in general management with minimal impact on their work schedule and professional commitments.
The duration of the course is one year. Three hour sessions over the online platform will be held twice a week. The course includes three campus modules for which learners are required to come to IIM Calcutta campus at Kolkata thrice during the span of one year for face-to-face sessions.
The duration of the three campus modules are 5 days, 9 days and 5 days respectively. Participation in the campus modules is a mandatory requirement for the successful completion of the course. All examinations will be held during the campus visits.
