Great Lakes launches program for working profesionals

EduShine Academic Search

Great Lakes Institute of Management, Chennai, has announced the launch of PGWPM—a postgraduate Working Professional Programme in Management. The programme will have the same academic rigour that is currently being offered to the institute’s core residential PGPM students. Only the time frame for the new course promises to be different. The course will be spread over 52 alternate weekends, making it an eightterm, two-year course.

Professor S. Sriram, the executive director, Great Lakes, said, “We are approached by people who want to pursue management education without quitting Jobs. This is our response to such a need.”

Though the programme is primarily intended for professionals based in Chennai, the institute predicts that aspirants will soon travel from other cities for the course.
