Rajiv Gandhi Indian Institute of Management Shillong (IIM Shillong) announces a unique Sino-Indian International Post Graduate Programme for Executive in International Business with a Global Focus - an intensive one year post-graduate programme designed to enhance skills and capabilities essential for responsible positions for senior management at the global level.  

Salient Features:·       
  • Study Abroad for 6 months·       
  • Global Internship and Training·       
  • Foreign Language Lab (FLL) for six languages·      
  • Integrated Eastern and Western management approach through Equilibrium Thinking (ET), First Discipline (FD), Potential Performance Programming (PPP), and outdoor workshops in exotic locations in north east and south India.·      
  • Moulding global managers through Mystique Management and Mind Mapping (4Ms) principles·
  • Diploma jointly awarded by IIM Shillong and Ocean University of China (OUC), Qingdao·

 Distinctive Features of the Programme :-
Thought, Action and Leadership form the key drivers for the PGPEx course. This translates into distinctive features offered in this course.

Leading and Managing Global Organizations :-

Participants of this programme will develop leadership and managerial skills that are critical to effective global managers. They will also explore the impact of cultural differences on personal and organizational effectiveness by imparting the knowledge from 4Ms (Mystique Management and Mind Mapping) and FD framework.

Fusion of Western and Eastern Management Philosophies :-

The West has taught us how to organize efficiently using technological innovations like information technology and biotechnology in a market economy. The east however advocates a holistic approach with respect to human happiness through a balanced view of environmental protection and distribution of purchasing power to avoid the disaster implied in the Western model. We should certainly work towards higher standards of living with a drastic reduction of people living below the poverty line. But at the same time we may not strive to catch up worth the standard of living in Europe of America since that is unlikely to be sustainable due to environmental degradation. By following this principle, participants of PGPEx will learn to align operations strategy with overall business strategy, with emphasis on process analysis and supply chain management. They will learn concepts and tools needed to design, plan, drive and control service and manufacturing operations in a global economy during the course of the study while undertaking projects in the enabling company.

Innovative Content :

Adding a few global courses to an existing MBA curriculum isn’t enough to establish leadership in global business education. That’s why we designed PGPEx from scratch, with equal input from Indian and Chinese management with global outlook under Asian management philosophy. The PGPEx curriculum incorporates best business practices and issues affecting each world region with focus on India and China. No culture or perspective dominates, which provides the participants with a broad and balanced worldview.  Each participant will learn to analyze problems, think strategically, and build great organizations. Plus, they will develop leadership skills, with emphasis on working with multicultural global teams.

Focus on Emerging Markets:-

Emerging markets are at the core of the PGPEx, with intensive study and analysis of the context of a country achieved through experiential study tours in the BRICS countries. This is based on the conviction that growth in the future will come from the emerging economies, which require special focus and understanding.

Access to IIM Shillong Resources:-

The advantage of doing a course at IIM Shillong lies in having access all the e-resources of the Institute including knowledge management center and virtual lab.


With diversity as a stated objective, the composition of the PGPEx batch will ensure a group of participants with wide-ranging skills, backgrounds, global exposures and international project experiences, such that learning  through global  peer group exchange and knowledge sharing is likely to be  one of the most beneficial aspects of this programme.

Global by Design:

Core courses were designed by key faculty members from Sino Indian business schools. They worked together to incorporate perspectives and best practices from region in the EMEs. Participants of PGPEx will learn to analyze problems, think strategically, and build global organizations. Plus, they will develop teaming skills and cultural awareness required for global career success.
