The One-year Full-Time Executive Post Graduate Programme in Management (EPGP) at IIMB is a specially designed, rigorous academic programme that transforms highly accomplished individuals with significant domain expertise into high-performing, impactful leaders.

The full-time Executive Post Graduate Programme in Management (EPGP) is an intensive one-year residential MBA programme created specifically for professionals with a remarkable track record and 5 to 12 years of work experience in a wide range of industries. The EPGP provides students with the same solid foundation in key management concepts and disciplines as a two-year MBA, with similar rigor, range of electives, and grading criteria. A key advantage of the EPGP is that the coursework builds on the diverse and extensive work experience of the students. In today’s volatile and competitive economic environment, companies face an increasing need for skilled mid-level and senior executives who have the vision and potential to attain top leadership positions. While deep functional and operational expertise is a prerequisite for such executives, their success is also contingent on their ability to perceive and analyze a situation from multiple perspectives and take timely and effective action.

The current cohort houses Chartered Accountants, fashion designers, Army veterans, a Commandant from CRPF, sailors from Merchant Navy, Aeronautical engineers, Bankers, engineers from Oil & Gas, Sales Leaders, engineers from the IT industry, and many more vibrant profiles.

The programme attracts students from diverse backgrounds, which adds to the richness of the learning environment. Over the years, EPGP graduates have gone on to very successful careers in the corporate sector as well as entrepreneurs. The high global ranking of the EPGP among the top MBA programmes by Financial Times and other agencies is a recognition of the high quality of the curriculum, faculty, and students. The EPGP batch of 2022-23 is a group of very talented individuals who have come through a rigorous selection process, and I am confident that they will go on to positively contribute to, and create value for, their organizations.
