IIM Jammu launched its two-year Executive MBA program (blended mode) for working professionals. The program is highly useful to the participants who due to some reasons were unable to complete their Master’s program and are now eagerly interested to complete their MBAs without leaving their professions. Working executives from industry, corporates, government organizations, armed/paramilitary forces, NGOs, and entrepreneurs with a minimum work experience of three years are eligible to apply.
To ease the learning process for them, the program would be blending with on-campus and online learning modules spread over six terms in two years. The first year focuses on the foundation courses, and the second year will have the advanced courses. In each of the program trimesters, the participants will have one week of campus visits to discuss and experience the classroom learning module, and the rest of the module will be completed in online mode. It will help the participants to be empowered with the knowledge, skill, attitude, flexibility, and the ability for lifelong learning, to develop their careers to their fullest potentials.
During the launched of the Executive MBA program, Prof. B S Sahay, Director, IIM Jammu invited the aspirants to be a part of the rigorous program. He said, “Rapidly emerging Indian economy is making its way to become Atma Nirbhar in the near future by embracing the updated versions of technology”. This is making transformational shifts in the existing working patterns of the business houses. Further, due to the global disruptions (pandemics, changing economic and geo-political relations) the business professionals have to reinvent and adapt to the changing circumstances in order to prove their relevance. IIM Jammu’s Executive Master of Business Management (EMBA) aims at this. IIM Jammu as an institution of national importance has started its journey by launching its flagship program of MBA in 2016. In 2020, IIM Jammu started the Ph.D. program for management. In 2021, IIM Jammu expanded its learning horizon by starting the 5-Year Integrated Program in Management. Now, IIM Jammu plans to contribute to career building of working executives by starting its two-year program Executive Master of Business Management (EMBA) in blended mode. Keeping in mind the business executives who are at their early or mid-career levels, the program is cautiously designed to operate in the blended mode by incorporating the on-campus and online learning modules.”
One of the key characteristics of the program is its exposure to global/rural environments through its one-week immersion program. This one-week immersion program will take place after the successful completion of the first year of EMBA. The global immersion will expose the participants to the unique learning methods followed by the international partners of IIM Jammu, whereas the rural immersion will be immersing the participants with the knowledge and working cultures of rural India. In addition, the program has added features in the form of the dissertation under the expert mentorship of IIM Jammu faculty, which will be spread over the last two terms. This will be providing the real-life applications of the concepts discussed during the class interactions. After the successful completion of the program, the participant will be a proud alumnus of IIM Jammu.
