3. How is the EPGP different from the PGP?

The course structure of EPGP is customized to the needs of the working executives. However, it borrows some of the major courses from the PGP / ePGP curricula. For example, courses such as Global Business, Leadership and Corporate Accountability are specific to EPGP programme and are not offered as compulsory courses to PGP. The courses are structured to address the requirements of working executives but at the same time save them from a full time commitment by way of a sabbatical or quit their current jobs. The programme is built on the premise that the participants can extend the classroom learning and insights for their professional and career advantage.

PGP is a fulltime resident program based in the Kozhikode campus where as EPGP is for those working professionals who are looking forward to pursue management education to advance in their profession by enhancing their skill sets and capabilities.

4. How is the ePGP different from the EPGP at Kochi Campus?

ePGP is offered through a satellite technology enabled interactive class room whereas EPGP at Kochi Campus is offered as a class room based program. The programme is meant for a similar target audience facing significantly different constraints in pursuing management education. ePGP classes could be attended through interactive technology enabled class room sessions near to their location at different cities across India. EPGP at Kochi Campus is conducted at class rooms at Kochi campus and hence is meant for those residing / employed in and around Kochi or could reach Kochi at least by overnight journey. The advantage of EPGP at Kochi is that it provides the participant with a full learning experience that any class room based education would provide without a residential commitment.

5. Where are the classes conducted?

The classes are conducted at the Kochi Campus of IIMK based in Infopark Kakkanad.

6. What are the cohorts available in EPGP at Kochi?


Batch Day Time
Evening Batch: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 6:45 pm to 9:30 pm
Week end Batch: Saturday 4:00 pm to 9:45 pm


7. Why the cohort is scheduled on Saturdays and Sundays ?

The evening batch is ideally suited for working executives residing in and around Kochi. This is for those executives who can manage to spare their evening time for learning at our campus. For those participants, who are away and cannot reach us on a daily basis, the week-end cohort should be ideal. They could conveniently reach on Saturday by 4:00 PM and could leave after 4:00 PM on Sunday.

8. Is it possible to change between cohorts during the programme?

Normally change between cohorts is not allowed but may be allowed based on specific approval in each case considering professional / employment reasons.

9. What is the experience and profile of participants in the current batch?

Though the minimum requirement for application is three years after graduation, the current set of participants has a rich experience across diverse industries such as IT, Manufacturing, Banking, Hospitality, Agribusiness, Medicine, etc. The average experience for the current batch of participants is around 7 years.
