Why PGDM from NSB?
Indian energy sector has been witnessing a rapid pace of changes in terms of regulatory reforms, innovative initiatives and technological developments. With the emergence of digital technology, the landscape of energy sector is poised to see a massive change.
NTPC, the largest power generator in the country and a Maharatna company has been making immense contribution by way of sustainable power generation in the country. It has also been sharing its experiences for the sectoral development.
Recognizing the fact that human capital is the key value differentiator for the success of any economic and business activity, NTPC formed “NTPC Education and Research Society” – NEARS, in the year 2014 with the aim to nurture the human capital for the entire energy sector.
Under the aegis of NEARS, NTPC School of Business (NSB) has been set up and it started first batch of Post Graduate Diploma in Management – Executive (PGDM-E) program (15 months full-time residential AICTE approved course) in 2015. All the related sectoral organizations welcomed this step of NTPC Limited and sent their sponsored candidates for joining this course. The candidates from Coal India, BHEL, NLC, Tata Power, NHPC etc. have consistently been became the part of different PGDM(E) batches. In year 2017, taking another leap in industry-academia tie-up, the industry leader NTPC and academic leader IIMA joined hands together. IIMA started providing faculty and curriculum support to NSB.
Moving further in its pursuit towards excellence, this year, NSB has got approval to start a new full time two-year PGDM (Energy Management) program from AICTE. The course curriculum of the program is designed by IIMA and significant part of the course will be delivered by IIMA faculty members. The remaining would be delivered through NSB’s pool of expert faculty and experienced professionals who possess a blend of contemporary industry exposure as well as academic excellence.
The program is designed by IIMA which has highly interactive approach to teaching. The pedagogy will be a blend of lectures, discussions, case-studies, seminars, group exercises and projects with particular emphasis on the case-study method.
Therefore, the program is best suited to the candidates who wish to pursue their career in the power and energy domain. The key benefits of the program is to prepare students for critical analysis and application of skills to real business situations, to learn the combination of the fundamentals of the management with domain/industry expertise and practical insights through internship and field visits.
