Now You Can Get a Certificate from IIMB and IIT

Policy Indications

In a movement to open up the boundaries for working professionals, the Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore (IIMB) and the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Madras, have collaborated to offer a certificate programme in technology and management.

Though the programme will not be considered equivalent to MBA or BTech, the officials say that it will cover most of the core courses. "It is aimed at giving young students and working professionals with two-five years of experience an understanding of the recent developments in technology and management. It will be useful for those unable to take two years off for a regular in-campus programme," said PD Jose, programme director, and faculty in the strategy area at IIM Bangalore. 

The programme will be of 10 months duration. It will have 10 courses in management and engineering disciplines and 12 campus-connect sessions in each institute over three modules, delivered by the faculty. Once the course is completed successfully, the student will get a certificate.

Registrations have opened in March, and enrollments will begin soon after.
