Leadership Talks Series

These encounters take place throughout the year, and the guest speakers cover both technical and soft skills in their seminars. Not only do these workshops foster a strong and fruitful partnership between academics and industry, but they also provide students the opportunity to hear from industry pioneers about market trends and operational issues.

International Immersion

Top management positions increasingly go to global citizens – people who have experienced life overseas and can therefore understand diverse business cultures and environments. Leveraging cultural diversity as a competitive advantage cannot be overlooked in today’s globalized business landscape. The 11th batch of IPMX spent one full term at ESCP, London. This month-long campus module adds a new dimension to the learning that the IPMX students gain through the course. It enables students to appreciate, accept and adapt to diverse business and cultural environments.

Industrial Visits

The IPMX student experience emphasizes learning outside of the classroom as well. Seminars, workshops, and industry trips, both in India and abroad, are used to accomplish this. This gives students a significant opportunity to meet with business partners and gain a hands-on understanding of how the corporate system works across diverse economies.
