Course Overview

General Management is an executive role within an organisation with overall responsibility for the organisations’ growth and profitability. The General Management role involves overseeing multiple, if not most, functional roles within the organisation and presupposes an understanding and working knowledge of all key functional roles. Any working executive aspiring to be a part of an organisation’s general management, must be equipped with cross-functional competencies and management skills across all business functions like marketing & sales, finance & accounting, operations, logistics, human resources, etc.

Due to COVID-19, Government has advised against all kinds of public gathering till further notice. For us, safety of our learners is important and hence the programme will be delivered over Direct-to-Device platform i.e. (D2D) where you can access online interactive lectures which will get delivered on your desktop/laptop/mobile. Once the situation improves, the programme shall then be delivered at our designated Centres

Also note that all campus visits shall be conducted once the Government lifts the travel ban and permits the reopening of educational institutes. Candidates will be given appropriate time to plan their travel and itinerary.
