IIM-K to Open Satellite Campus in Kochi

Already a leader in the field by offering the internationally accredited Executive Management Education Programme, the Indian Institute of Management, Kozhikode (IIM-K) will open a satellite campus in Kochi to make greater strides.

This is coming up on the Infopark premises at Kakkanad,  and it will focus on executive education as the demand for it is on the rise. IIM-K is the only premier institution of its class in the country offering such an executive management programme.

Expected to become functional by October, the campus will offer full-time and part-time MBA programmes for middle- and senior-level executives. The Kochi satellite campus will offer several short-term management development programmes, besides a one-year executive MBA programme and a two-year part-time management programme.

The executive education programmes offered by the world’s leading universities and business schools, including Harvard Business School and the Stanford Graduate School of Business, has been in great demand despite the worldwide economic slowdown in recent years. Companies are spending millions of rupees on executive education as they seek to build up the skills of their employees, particularly at the managerial level.

Executive education is considered an intelligent investment as the employees, after acquiring new skill sets in leadership and management, will help the company benefit from a well-trained and highly motivated management team.
