The ISB Post Graduate Programme in Management for Senior Executives (PGPMAX)


PGPMAX or the Post Graduate Programme in Management for Senior Executives is equivalent to a global executive MBA program and is designed for senior executives with over 10-25 years of work experience. This part time, 15-month program is designed to help the career advancement of experienced managers, middle and senior management executives, and business owners/entrepreneurs, to groom them professionally, for global leadership roles. The program is delivered by senior faculty members, with extensive industry and teaching experience, from ISB and the global top 20 business schools. The core objective of this program curriculum is leadership development.

With a view to facilitating global exposure and globally-oriented learning, the PGPMAX includes international immersions – two weeks in the US and one week in China. The program ensures substantial in-class learning by engaging the involvement of a diverse mix of dynamic individuals, including C-level Executives, Directors, Country Heads and Business Owners. The participants then get a full ISB alumni status that allows them to network and interact with successful people associated with the ISB brand, from all around the world.

This program is unique in the design of the delivery model. With a balanced curriculum consisting of theory and practical application modules, the program is amply supplemented with case studies, group work, discussions, class lectures and simulations. The classes are held for one week every sixth week and participants cover 24 courses in the 15-month period. Even though this is not a placement-oriented program, career opportunities are abundant when the network of alumni and peers is activated.
