Faculty Testimonials


“An enthusiastic group of experienced executives who travel ‘miles’ to reach our campus on weekends and yet show no signs of weariness in the classroom. PGPEM participants bring in their diverse backgrounds and enormous experience to bear upon their studies. They have an unusual ability to gel as a group and work on interesting themes with quality results, as I could discover from my association with them. The interesting work they do at IIMB , I am told, has yielded dividends in their workplace. I have always enjoyed teaching and interacting with them.”

“The PGPEM is unique. The participants of the programme join to acquire management knowledge out of their own choice, and not due to peer or family pressure. This has a huge impact on the character of the programme and the learning experience. Participants learn in the classroom, and also learn by sharing their own experiences. Even as they learn from me, I learn so much from them about the industry happenings and trends during my interactions. Having been associated with the PGPEM for long, and being aware of the success of the alumni of this programme, I wholeheartedly recommend it for any mid-career professional who aspires to join the top management ranks.”

“I find the PGPEM students to have diversified interests in terms of the skills and concepts that they want to learn. More importantly, if properly facilitated they are able to bring some interesting aspects from their workplace into the classroom discussion, which invariably add richness to the discussions. Teaching PGPEM is always a pleasure for me as I deal with students who bring maturity and seriousness with them.”

- B Mahadevan


“I found the class to be always motivated and well-prepared despite having to manage pressing work commitments during the week and I found the observations of the class to be extremely perceptive. Teaching the class has been a unique learning experience for me as an instructor as well. A remarkable feature that encapsulated the continuing enthusiasm of the students was the engagement of the class on the issues raised during the sessions, long after the session was over.”
