EPGDIBS offers a perfect recipe for mid-career professionals, aspiring to head their respective value chain. The top class faculty, who often are part of GOI International trade delegation, gives a global perspective of business fundamentals through VSAT mode & case-studies with periodic campus sessions. Being a part of an Alumni network, spread across the global corporates improves professional connects. Overall, it was a very satisfying exposure.

Kartikay Malhotra

Sr. Programme Manager
Samsung Digital Academy

According to me, one-year EPGDIBS is equivalent to second-year of MBA, and that EPGDIBS is for industry veterans who wish to complete the course work quickly by studying at breakneck speed. After studying at IIFT, my superiors saw a transformational change in me, and made me in-charge of a multi-crore prestigious CSR programme. But more than that, I developed a tremendous professional network, and friendships that would last for a lifetime.
