Virtual Learning Programmes for Executives (VLPE) Programme Coordinator

Upskilling is a mandatory requirement in the prevailing industry environment to progress further. Considering the fact that many working executives might not have the privilege of leaving the job for higher studies, VLPE (Virtual Learning Programme for Executives) comes as a solution in this scenario. VLPE offers Post Graduate Certificate programmes in various domains through technology platforms as IIM Indore has tied up with the technology partners to offer such programmes. The academic activities
of these programmes are fully owned and managed by IIM Indore while platform is managed by the technology partners.

We offer General Management programme s as well as specialized programmes for the executives based on their profiles and requirements. For example, Post Graduate Certificate Programme in Management (PGCPM) is designed for participants with less experience i.e. new entrants in the industry while Executive Post Graduate Programme in Management (EPGCPM) is designed for the participants having at least 5 years of experience. Domain-specific programme s are also being offered such as Post Graduate Certificate Programme in Finance (PGCPF) and Post Graduate Certificate Programme in Investment banking (PGCPIB). All the programme s offered through VLPE possess the academic rigor and quality as expected from a premier institute like IIM Indore. With the advent of many technologies, it is possible to design and deliver such kinds of e-learning programme s without compromising the learning outcomes. All the programme s are offered in synchronous mode to ensure the live interaction with the faculty member during the class. Participants can also reach out to faculty members through various channels after the class as well for clarifying their doubts. We are offering programmes in many modes like D2D (Direct to Device) and studio-based programmes based on the requirements of different kinds of participants. With these programmes, we aim to equip the participants to become successful professionals that can lead with confidence, stimulate performance at all levels, and contribute more value as a member of any organization.

Please do reach out to us for further information. Looking forward to be a partner in your progress.
