Executive PGDM in Business Analytics.


EPGDM Business Analytics batch at IFIM’s 20th Convocation Ceremony 2016




Admissions Open for June 2017 batch

Program Duration : 15 Months

Intake : 60 seats

A specially delineated program for working executives, from all management bands, intended to equip them with:

  • Relevant theoretical and practical knowledge to implement Business Analytics solutions in their respective organisations.
  • Imparting skills to help them move up the professional ladder.

Program Fee

  • Education Loans and Group/Corporate Packages are also available.

Program Background

While the curiosity in analytics and resulting benefits are growing day by day, some organizations are tested by the unpredictability and disruption that business environment can create. To overcome this, organizations must follow an approach of revealing the insight in their data to drive business decisions. For this to happen, one needs Business, Analytical, Organizational and Technological knowledge, which is the focus of the program.

Digital data availability has increased tremendously over a period of time with implementation of enterprise applications like ERP, SCM, CRM and Electronic Payment System apart from Electronic Governance initiated by Govt. organizations at Center & State level. However, there is an acute shortage of professionally trained personnel at middle & senior management level who understand the potential of Big Data Analytics, who can translate analysis outcome and integrate it with overall business strategy of the organization.

For successful implementation and roll out of analytics at organization level, many aspects apart from just technical play a major role. Some of them are proper KPIs to measure the success of business intelligence, organization structure to support its rollout, cultural changes required and integration of business intelligence strategy with overall business strategy.

Program Highlights

  • AICTE approved 15-months Executive Post Graduate Diploma in Management (Executive PGDM).
  • Curriculum designed and delivered by a blend of highly qualified and experienced faculty from IFIM and industry experts.
  • Hybrid model of course delivery via facility of live streaming of lectures and classroom teaching with access to recorded sessions.
  • Hands-on-experience of working with relevant software from IBM, OpenSource and Microsoft.
  • Convenience of weekend classes (Saturdays and alternate Sundays).
