Message From The Chairperson


Competition was never so tough, aspirations were never so high, and time never seemed so less. In this fast-paced world, everyone wants everything, that too the best, and at their convenience.

This is also the time of digitisation. From the world of brick and mortar, we have moved to the digital platform.

ePGP marks IIMA’s foray into online education leading to a “PG Diploma”.  ePGP is a hybrid programme, with online lessons and classroom teaching in IIMA campus. ePGP has been designed to cater to entrepreneurs and professionals who wish to enrich themselves and enhance their skills, so as to take their career and organisations to the next level.

Apart from attending online classes in various cities, participants have the flexibility of completing the two-year course in three years.

In this endeavour, we are being supported by Hughes Global Education, a pioneer in Interactive Onsite Learning (IOL). ePGP uses satellite-based technology through IOL platform and other hybrid methodologies like classroom-based instruction, continuous evaluation and mentored project work.

IIMA welcomes you to join ePGP and soak in the new-age learning experience where knowledge, empowered by technology, marches ahead.
