This two-year programme has a minimal or zero effect on work-life balance. The programme has been designed based on the flagship in campus post-graduate programme of IIM Raipur. This programme would include an eclectic mix of case-based methods of teaching, simulations, problem-solving exercises, assignments, role play, and in-class discussions among the participants. Since classes are delivered in a synchronized mode, recording shall not be available to the participants. Only in case of medical emergencies or work-related assignments, approval shall be given on case-to-case basis to provide the session recordings.

The program will help professionals gain a general management orientation that coupled with participants’ functional expertise would facilitate them to assume larger roles. Participants will gain valuable insights as faculty members share cutting-edge management concepts, global industry trends, business practices, and their own practical knowledge to classroom.
In order to add a flavor of campus life, the programme has been blended with ten days of campus visit, divided into five days each term. Due to the current scenario, campus visits are uncertain and like to postpone, depending completely on the situation of global pandemic.
