Sunstone Business School is the pioneer in Problem-based Learning in India and offers PGPM program to Experienced Working Professionals in India and Internationally.
Sunstone Business School (www.sunstone.in) has announced that it has now created the first of its kind revolution in management education by providing an option for working professionals to complete the program in three levels over a period of 12-18 months.
The PGPM program has now been broken down to three levels
Level 1 – Foundations of Management : 4-6 months
Level 2 – Growth Strategies : 4-6 months
Level 3 – Shareholder Value : 4-6 months
This structure now allows flexibility to the mid-career professional to learn as they have time availability and apply that learning in their current roles to further their career.
While Level 1 focusses on learning and applying the basic business disciplines, Level 2 equips the professional for getting ready for a career of their choice around business delivery management, product management or sales and business development. Level 3 helps the professional build CXO level perspective and become a master strategist.
“Sunstone PGPM is an intense program and completing it with the job in a year has been a challenge for a lot of students. The level structure allows students to go step by step and commit only for few months at a time”- says Rajul Garg, Director, Sunstone Business School. This is the latest in innovations from Sunstone after launching India’s first problem based learning pedagogy in business education more than three years back, and enrolling ~150 students this year.
Dinesh Singh, Director, Student Experience mentions “We receive several requests where students don’t want to go through a full-fledged MBA but understand foundations of business and get an edge in their career. Level 1 addresses this need and also provides an option to complete the PGPM later”.
Sunstone Business School has started admissions for the Level 1 batch that starts in January 2014. With the new structure, it plans to enroll ~300 students in Level 1 next year.
