The Executive General Management Programme (EGMP) is a part-time certificate programme designed for functional managers aspiring to move into a general management role and fast-track managers who have recently moved into a general management role, to develop core business skills and competencies, which would equip them to handle issues involving cross-functional areas.
The EGMP brings together participants from diverse backgrounds, skills and experience, thereby enabling peer learning. The eminent faculty of IIMB handles the curriculum. The EGMP participants involve themselves actively in case studies and discussions, role-play, games, etc. They benefit immensely through continuous learning and networking with peers from different backgrounds, during and after the programme.
