Graduate Management Admission CouncilPGPEX (Post Graduate Programme for Executives) is IIM Calcutta's One Year Full Time Residential Programme meant for Executives with more than five years of professional experience. IIM Calcutta is the first management institute in the country to be Triple Crowned – to be accredited by AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS, i.e., accredited by all the three major accreditation agencies in the world for management education. Only 5 other business schools in Asia and 73 business schools around the world are currently ‘Triple Accredited’.

It provides mid-career professionals the ideal platform to augment their existing skill sets as they endeavour to armour themselves for senior and top management roles in the industry.

The management programme since its inception in 2006, has spawned alumni who have demonstrated excellence in the leadership positions that they have occupied in their organizations.

The Class comprises an eclectic mix of youth and experience. Under the able guidance of the country’s leading management faculty, a passion for continuous learning synergizes with experiences from diverse backgrounds to create an enriching learning environment.

Learning beyond the classroom is an equally important facet. While case discussions enrich the practical experience of unraveling real life business puzzles, informal discussions on varied topics from thoughtfully chosen adjunct readings broaden individual perspectives. The immersion programme helps future business leaders hone their skills while tackling real world challenges. Individuals also make time to participate in business case competitions, branding exercises and self-interest career advancement clubs.

It is this heady mix of fervour, idealism, experience and moderating values that catalyses the transformation of experienced professionals into dynamic ethical leaders. This indeed is the true objective of the PGPEX management programme.
