  • IIM Nagpur, in association with The Second Wind (TSW), an initiative by Times Professional Learning, has announced four Post Graduate programmes for which admissions are now open. These programmes, which are of about one-year duration, include – Post Graduate Certificate Programme in Operations Management (PGCPOM), Senior Management Programme (SMP), Post Graduate Certificate Programme in General Management (GMP), and Post Graduate Certificate Programme in Strategic Management (PGCSM). These comprehensive programmes offer learners the benefit of IIM Nagpur’s academic excellence and an intricately designed curriculum, to develop a set of in-demand skills and accelerate the learner’s career trajectory.

    All four programmes will be a blend of online and in-campus modules at IIM Nagpur. The pedagogy includes a judicious mix of lectures, case discussions, project work, term papers, assignments, etc. The curriculum will be delivered by IIM Nagpur’s top-ranked faculty. TSW brings forth these programmes, enabling professionals to earn the prestigious certificate from IIM Nagpur while still being able to work.  

    Commenting on the same, Dr. Bhimaraya Metri, Director, IIM Nagpur, said, “With the pandemic impacting every industry and sector in seismic ways, there has never been a more important moment to broaden access to rigorous, engaging, and flexible training for today’s and tomorrow’s leaders. We are thrilled to begin this partnership with The Second Wind, building to expand the reach of our traditional programmes, with the unique added component of flexibility.”

    Commenting on the programmes, Mr. Anish Srikrishna, CEO, Times Professional Learning, said, “The Second Wind is excited about our strategic partnership with IIM Nagpur to power these online certificate programmes with them. They are an esteemed and student-centred university with a strong commitment to quality, flexibility, and innovation in higher education. At TSW, we strive to deliver purposeful online programmes that deliver career-relevant skills and I have no doubt the PGCPOM, SMP, GMP and PGCSM programmes will do just that.”

    “IIM Nagpur’s unwavering focus on pioneering exceptional industry partnerships to lead the way in providing real-world experiences prepares our programme participants for life – bringing ‘corporates into classrooms’ to hone relevantly skilled talent for the ever-evolving world of business. IIM Nagpur is one of the first premier institutions in the country to seamlessly make the shift from physical to online over the past year. IIM Nagpur is well-equipped to conduct Executive Education Programmes (EEPs) for executives from public and private sector undertakings. Keeping the New Education Policy (NEP) 2020, digitalisation, and lifelong learning in mind, IIM Nagpur has launched online certificate programmes for skilling, reskilling, and upskilling the executives in highly specialised areas of management.
