Mumbai : The Indian Institute of Management Calcutta (IIM Calcutta), ranked as the #3 best B-School in India (NIRF, 2022) and #1 as per Business Today ranking (2021), has announced the launch of the 15th batch of the Executive Programme in Global Business Management with Emeritus. Aiming to upskill Indian professionals for a high-growth career in global business management, this career-defining 1-year programme will empower learners to develop future-ready business skills and globalise their business careers. This programme is ideal for mid-career professionals transitioning to global management roles of international businesses or keen on tapping global opportunities for their companies, as well as senior professionals and evolving business leaders looking for a fresh perspective on strategies to expand and successfully manage global operations.

As per a Deloitte report (2022), 60% of the executives report that strong leadership behaviour is critical to achieving future preparedness in business. As businesses and customers grow globally in today’s interconnected world, organisational expectations, needs, and demands are changing faster than ever before. The changing business demands require new-age managers and leaders who can think globally and act strategically. Thus, transforming into a global business leader requires having advanced strategic business acumen, innovative thinking, technological agility, and leadership capabilities.

Taught by distinguished IIM Calcutta faculty, the Executive Programme in Global Business Management has enabled scores of alumni through its earlier fourteen batches to gain strong strategic, cross-functional, and business decision-making skills in today’s interconnected, global business landscape. On his learning experience, a past participant said, “I gained lots of insights about Global Business Management, which will help me build my career prospect in a better way. I learned lots of managerial skills, which are essential for being an international manager. I feel graced to be associated with great faculties and excellent batch mates. I enjoyed learning a lot with IIM Calcutta and will cherish these memories forever”. Upon successful completion, participants will receive a certificate of completion from IIM Calcutta and the prestigious IIM Calcutta Executive Education Alumni Status.

Commenting on the launch of the 15th batch of the programme, Prof. Ramya T. Venkateswaran, Associate Professor, Strategic Management and Prof. V. K.

IIM Calcutta has taught and mentored close to 850+ past participants from various sectors, functions, and experiences — ranging mainly from 6 to 15+ years across the 14 batches of this programme”.

Mohan Kannegal, CEO, India and APAC, Emeritus, said, “According to GMAC’s Corporate Recruiters Survey 2021, the top three skills that will see higher demand in the next five years are managing strategy and innovation, decision-making processes, and leadership. In a rapidly changing global business landscape coupled with technology-led disruption, upskilling is indispensable for business success. With insights from leading IIM Calcutta faculty and distilling hundreds of leading global best practices across industries, the Executive Programme in Global Business Management will transform learners into influential global business leaders and catalysts for business integration, improved responsiveness, and sustainable transformation in an international context”.
