IIM Kozhikode invites applications for the PG Programme in Liberal Studies and Management.
Management education draws heavily from scientific methods of fact-finding in controlled environments. In reality, business is often done in environments in which judgments are made with messy, incomplete, and incoherent data. The scientific method of teaching and learning alone is not sufficient for preparing future managers. There is a dire need for an alternative form of management education.
In line with the vision to innovate and excel in business education, Indian Institute of Management Kozhikode is introducing an innovative Post Graduate Programme in Liberal Studies & Management (PGP-LSM). It is a two-year full-time Masters level program designed to integrate and equip participants to pursue careers in managerial roles in marketing, human resource management, media, social enterprise, hospitality, healthcare or in other people facing roles. These are the roles that require a holistic perspective and ‘Diversity of thoughts’ which PGP-LSM aims to develop.
PGP-LSM is a unique offering, with the primary objective to prepare future managers by enabling them to acquire emotional, cultural, and creative intelligence.
PGP-LSM is a two year six term programme that provides in-depth coverage in terms of lessons from liberal studies and core management principles in the first year followed by advanced courses and electives in the second year.
It also has a module on International and Rural immersion that the participants need to engage with in term IV (second year). Master’s thesis in term VI (second year) is another unique feature of the course.
