Executive Education Programs is the term used for programmes at graduate-level business schools that aim to give classes for Executives and other senior managers or entrepreneurs.
Executive education prepares executives for new levels of leadership in their careers and within their organizations. If one looks around the management education and training landscape in India, the big trend is the rise of executive education. NMIMS as one of the premier B Schools have been established to cater to the rising demand of training of executives, in addition to fresh graduates that enroll into Full Time MBA. The enrolment numbers at executive education programmes are on a rise. Presently, there are more than 2500 executives undergoing various executive education programs.
In today’s chaotic business environment, participation in an executive education program has to be more than an opportunity to gain or improve a particular skill set. That is why the NMIMS Executive Education experience focuses on preparing the participants to harness their ingenuity and drive in order to reshape their organization and create a more dynamic, enriching tomorrow. Change is constant and unpredictable in today’s global business landscape. The effects in the marketplace can be either positive or unsettling, and it takes agile, flexible leadership to navigate these uncharted waters. The programs demand a great deal from both the faculty who create and deliver the courses and the business professionals who take them.
Executive education programmes meant for working professionals are classified on the basis of duration and delivery mode. The programs are delivered either on-campus or off campus. Also the duration of executive education programmes can vary from just a few days to even three years. But the common thread remains – these programmes are meant for executives who want to learn new skills and move up the hierarchy.
