Experiences shared by Exchange Students and International Faculty about MDI and India

In company Management Development Programmes (MDPs)

The Institute conducts specially designed executive development programmes for executive trainees, junior, middle and senior level managers of different organisations. Such programmes involve extensive study of the client organisation, preparation of specific teaching materials and cases towards the development of a customised course design to suit the needs of each organisation. The programmes, which are of short as well as long duration, attempt to upgrade the skills of participants and also to help the organisation in developing a culture conducive to organisational excellence. MDI has strategic alliances with business organisations, such as Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited, Industrial Finance Corporation of India Ltd., Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited, Larsen & Toubro Ltd., NTPC, KRIBHCO, etc. to help them upgrade the skills of their managers, develop cases based on these organisations and conduct applied research.

Advanced Management Programme

MDI's Advanced Management Programme (AMP) was launched in 1996 to prepare Top Managers of Indian Organisations, for the rapidly-changing Business World of tomorrow. The focus is on examining strategic issues - both functional as well as cross-functional - that leaders need to deal with in their quest for creating successful, globalised organisations. The AMP aims at providing a rare opportunity for top managers to reflect, introspect and examine the objectives and strategies that are critical to their organisations.

The AMP is a four-week program, of which the first two weeks are conducted at the MDI campus, and the next two weeks are held at leading International Business Schools in Europe. In the first two weeks, participants are provided with key inputs on the latest developments in major functional areas, cross-functional areas, strategic management etc. These sessions are conducted by experienced MDI faculty and are further enriched by guest faculty comprising of CEOs, policy makers, senior bureaucrats, and other well-known experts and practitioners.

The two-week Overseas Learning Program (OLP) is designed to help participants acquire international perspectives, and understand best practices and cross cultural issues in managing globalised businesses. As part of this OLP, the participants usually visit leading Business Schools in Europe, such as ESCP EAP European School of Management, Paris, and the Vienna University of Economics and Business Administration

Armed Forces Programme

The Indian Armed Forces represent a large group of well groomed and highly motivated people who are accustomed to work in a system that expects them to set high individual standards and high achievement targets. Officers from the armed forces are known to be self-reliant, innovative, resourceful and highly adaptable and are endowed with courage, motivation, education, selflessness and honesty. They lead and inspire the men working under them to perform extraordinary tasks in impossible situations and under tiring circumstances.

The service officers have the requisite skills backed with discipline and a focused approach to lead a productive life. Those who aspire for a magnificent career in the corporate world need to reorient their skills, attitudes and attributes to manage and capitalize on their inherent potential and experience for value creation.
