Executives in India can now choose from newly minted online training opportunities designed to advance their knowledge and careers while they continue to work. Three programs were recently launched, two by the Indian Institute of Management (IIM) and one by XLRI Jamshedpur, delivered over the unique Hughes Interactive Onsite Learning Platform from Hughes Global Education India Limited (HGEIL).
First offered in April 2015, the IIM Rohtak program is designed for experienced executives, entrepreneurs and professionals, looking to enhance managerial knowledge and skills. Executives may choose either a two-year Post Graduate Diploma or a one-year Post Graduate Certificate in a specific subject area. In June, IIM Calcutta launched its program which equips managers and professionals with the skills and perspectives required to lead their organizations in liberalized and deregulated business environments. Also launched in June, the XLRI Jamshedpur program is for working executives seeking a Postgraduate Certificate in Human Resource Management (PGCHRM) and Postgraduate Certificate in Business Management (PGCBM).
Each program is structured to minimize disruption in the workplace while ensuring the high standards and rigor expected by these respected institutes. The Hughes platform provides live, interactive capabilities where participants in any part of the country can discuss questions directly with faculty members, without geographical constraints.
Prof. P Rameshan, Director, IIM Rohtak said, “With the launch of our first Interactive Distance Learning Program, the ePGDM, we have taken another significant step towards our goal of being a global learning center. The Hughes Interactive Onsite platform gives us the technological support to reach students at far-off locations enabling them to benefit from the academic prowess of IIM Rohtak.” In a short span of time, the IIM has become a major management learning center in India, with an excellent corporate relations program and innovative initiatives, especially supporting women.
Of the XLRI Jamshedpur program, Prof. Ashis K Pani, Associate Dean of the VIL program said, “We are happy to see a large number of candidates taking advantage of this advanced online learning technology. Candidates all across the country can now benefit from industry-recognized certification coming from a renowned institute like XLRI.”
To date, more than 25,000 students have utilized the Hughes Interactive Onsite Learning platform in 100 classrooms in 50 cities spread across the country, participating in courses by leading academic partner institutes to improve their skills and move up the career ladder within their organizations.
