This program is designed with a deep thought process & its focus was not “read & reproduce” but making ourselves more competitive. The program director & the faculties allocated to this program had all the real & impressive practical experience which made the subject more acceptable to us in its theoretical form. It was real fun when we sat in a virtual class room.

I would like to share my experience and value proposition of EPGDIB V-SAT 2010-11" Before I started I had lot of apprehension about EPGDIB VSAT course from IIFT that after carrying 12 years of Finance Experience and qualifications like CA, CWA,Diploma in Business Finance - ICFAI, IFRS certification from London, whether I should pursue this course and whether this will help me in further honing my professional skills to Management cadre. After joining and rigorous study with lot of interactive sessions at classrooms and on lunch table with my batchmates, it gave immense confidence and perspective not only for Management but at CEO level kind of skills you need to have, to run your operations successfully.Precisely, this course is helping me in achieving my professional dreams'.

If you are caught up in your career & not in a position to take a break for upgrading your skills, this programme from IIMK is a God sent gift for you!!


The rigour & the tone for this program is set even before the course starts, from the entrance exam, which is followed up with the best in class course content & the best of the faculty. What impressed me the most was the alignment of the course to our professional work experiences & the effort gone into integrating what we do at work and what we learn in the class - a clear advantage for working executives. This course clearly reorients one's ways of looking at things professionally and pushes one to look at the big picture without losing sight of the small one(s). On the course delivery front, Hughes certainly deserves a "hats off" for making the virtual class rooms as good as the real one - from the ambience of the HGE centre, the quality of the hardware & accessories to the quality of transmission live from the IIMK campus to across the country!

Kudos to the Hughes Global Education team!

The overall course - EPHRM, was designed and co-ordinated perfectly. In all there were 6 modules, covering core HRM topics as well as strategy, general management and a final integration module at campus. The delivery mechanism at Hughes was near flawless and going through this one year program has been an overall enriching experience, over and above the valuable certification. The course design comprising literature, case studies, exams and project was as ehaustive as any; and IIM-C's deep rooted heritage and excellence in academics was a significant value add.

Hughes Begumpet Centre in Hyderabad was excellent in terms of both technical and administrative support. There were negligible technical glitches and the staff were always ready on hand to sort any small issues that did come up. The ambience, lighting and air conditioning was indeed conducive to the learning experience.

The staff at Begumpet Hyderabad were ever friendly and helpful; with timely SMS updates and and always open to suggestions. Technical services was near faultless and kudos to the team for maintaining quality.
