IIM Bangalore Re-brands PGSEM as PGPEM
IIM Bangalore Re-brands PGSEM as PGPEM: The two-year weekend program at IIM Bangalore, earlier known as “The Post Graduate Program in Software Enterprises Management (PGSEM)” has now been re-branded as the Post Graduate Program in Enterprise Management (PGPEM).
The new program PGPEM, is also a weekend program and focuses on the constantly evolving needs of industry, the contemporary challenges of practising managers in rapidly growing industries and the unique dimensions of emerging markets.
It’s a welcome change on part of IIM Bangalore, because like the previous program, PGPEM will be open not just for executives working in the IT industry, but most importantly it will also be open to executives from other industries as well, provided they meet the admission criteria of the program.
The PGPEM has been redesigned with inputs from the current students of PGSEM, the alumni of PGSEM and IIM Bangalore, and the senior executives from the corporate sector as well.
The eligibility criteria for the PGPEM program are as follows:
The applicant must hold a Bachelor’s Degree of any of the Universities incorporated by an Act of the Central or State legislature in India or other educational institutions established by an Act of Parliament or declared to be deemed as a University under section 3 UGC Act, 1956, or possess an equivalent qualification recognized by the Ministry of HRD, Government of India. The Bachelor’s Degree or equivalent qualification obtained by the candidate must entail a minimum of three years of education after completing higher secondary schooling (10+2) or equivalent. Diploma holders cannot apply to this program unless they also possess a Bachelor’s degree.
