IIM Nagpur today announced the launch of its MBA for Working Professionals program (MBA-WP). The programme will provide mid-career professionals with a management degree with the opportunity to advance their careers. The courses will be taught by IIM Nagpur faculty members, visiting faculty, and eminent industry and academic experts.
The programme aims to provide the batch participants with good peer networking and learning opportunities. The programme plans to attract and welcome a diverse set of professionals from various industries like public sector organizations, and entrepreneurs.
According to Dr. Bhimaraya Metri, Director of IIM Nagpur,“This MBA-WP program has been designed specially keeping the needs of working professionals in mind. Professionals from Nagpur and the nearby regions will be benefited from this programme. This initiative will produce expert management professionals and leaders of tomorrow in the Vidarbha region.”
The MBA-WP will begin at the Nagpur campus in September/October 2021 and will be available at the IIM Nagpur Pune campus by the end of the year. Classes will be held in person on weekday evenings or weekends. However, due to the current pandemic and government restrictions, the programme may have to be conducted online.
Filling out an application form, an entrance examination (IIM Nagpur Aptitude Test – IIMNAT), and a personal interview will all be part of the MBA-WP admissions process. Applications for MBA-WP admission to the Nagpur campus have already begun. Candidates interested in applying should visit the IIM Nagpur website
