8 Reasons Why Executive Management Programmes Are Advantegous

 Executive Management Programmes are part-time in nature and are usually of between 12 and 24 months length, depending on the coverage. The programmes are targeted at students with extensive work experience. The instruction is a mix of online and on-campus lectures and may include experiential and project work as well.

There are several advantages in the Executive Management Programme structure:

Focused learning: 

Executive programmes usually offer tailored coverage for specific objectives since students have extensive experience, which gives them a clear idea about what they want out of a course. This helps to make the curriculum relevant to those objectives.

Learn and earn:

Experienced executives have a large opportunity cost to pay in addition to the course fee if they take up a full-time programme. The structure of the executive programmes is such that most instruction takes place on weekends and the on-campus portion is kept to a minimum. This means that students can continue to earn while learning.

Opportunity for Applied Learning:

Since students are studying while working, they have a unique opportunity of being able to immediately apply management concepts in their roles. Not only does this help them understand academic concepts better but it also enhances their value in their workplace.

Rich peer Learning Opportunities:

The cohort of an executive programme is itself a source of learning since students come from reputed organisations with rich work experience of their own.


Focused and experienced students can put to use the peer group interactions for furthering their careers by expanding their professional networks.

Soft Skills Training:

Beyond technical skills, which students already possess through their job roles, the executive programmes focus on relevant soft skills like communication, team work, presentations, etc. These are essential skills in any modern organisation today.

Positioning for Leadership:

Business leaders are expected to be generalists who can analyse business issues from multiple perspectives – financial, operational, human, commercial, etc. The executive programmes specifically focus on building strategic thinking, team work, leadership skills, and business acumenthrough established frameworks, all of which are essential for a business leader.

Facilitating Career Shifts:

For students aspiring for a change in industry or domain, executive programmes offer the needed credentials. Completion of the programme makes it much easier to make a lateral shift into a new area.
