The reason why I chose to come to IIM, Calcutta for this EPDSMMS is that the time has started to change now. The pedagogy has been excellent. Not only have we been exposed to the basic concepts of marketing but also to the case studies & methodology of learning in group studies and environment which is very conducive for the knowledge sharing as well as the peer learning. Also, the latest topics which are right now going digital and social have also been covered very well.

The pedagogy of EPDSMMS is definitely awesome. I was happy to see that we got to learn a little bit more than what was mentioned in the course. The best modules were “Influencer Marketing” and the “Social Listening”. I strongly recommend this course to all the people who are planning to get started with digital marketing. Even the people who’re having working experience like me; they should definitely look into this course because it will give you an innovative edge.

I scanned a lot of courses but I froze upon EPDSMMS because this was exactly something what I needed. It a good mix off campus module and online module. The way it was structured; the campus module-online module-campus module really suited us. We had access to the best of the Literature, best of the technology, best of the cases which are very much required in our field of digital marketing. We had very good access to industry oriented lectures and speakers who actually gave us the real world insights about how to establish things from scratch; this was a key takeaway.

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'.

EPSM 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.

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).

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. Going through this on eprogramme has been an overall enriching experience over and above the valuable certification. The course design comprising literature, case studies, exams and project was as exhaustive as any; and IIM-C's deep rooted heritage and excellence in academics was a significant value add.
