IIM Kozhikode Executive Management Development Programme in Project Management
A project is a unique, transient endeavour, undertaken to achieve planned objectives, which could be defined in terms of outputs, outcomes or benefits. A project is deemed to be a success if it achieves predetermined objectives within an agreed timescale and budget.
Project management, then, is the application of knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to project activities to meet the project requirements. A project management professional needs a wide range of skills; often technical skills, and certainly people management skills and good business awareness.
The Project Management programme is offered as an eMDP (executive Management Development Programme) by Indian Institute of Management Kozhikode (IIM-K) delivered via an online Interactive Learning platform and broadcast directly to the participant’s device (Desktop/Laptop/Tablet/Smartphone)
Regardless of industry type and size, it is essential for companies to leverage project management capability into a competitive advantage. The non-repetitive, irreversible nature of projects and the huge capital investments involved, makes the knowledge of scientific and advanced project management skills mission-critical. This programme is designed to impart necessary skills in managing large projects in different domains ranging from Construction to IT.
