February 2022 has been often called the month of twos. One could call is serendipity that IGTC had 2 Executive Business Management Programme batches being inaugurated in this month. A never-before phenomenon.

Dual Education and Training has been a forte of the Indo-German Chamber of Commerce for over three decades now. However, the last few years have undoubtedly seen a thrust in its extremely powerful and transformational Executive Business Management Programme (EBMP) for middle level managers. From a city-specific programme in Mumbai and Pune on alternate weekends, this has grown to a national programme in a quarterly block format and the response has been overwhelming.

The 8th Pune EBMP witnessed a euphoria as the course was inaugurated on Saturday 9th February 2022 at a new location; the Taj Vivanta Hinjewadi. The 50 seats were filled across 25 diverse organizations sponsoring their high potential talent for an in-person, classroom learning experience: completely breaking away from the fatigue of the online world! With a cumulative experience of 8,550 months and an average work experience of 14 years, the newly born IGTCians are sure to keep the veteran faculty, quite literally, on their feet for the entire course and thankfully not behind the screen!

Managers belong to the following organizations; A Raymond Fasteners, Axa Business Services, Behr Hella Thermocontrol India, Bosch Chassis Systems, Bosch Limited, Brose India Automotive Systems, DesignTech Systems, EDAG Production Solutions, Ethosh India, Ford Motor Private Limited, HUF India, Jacobs, Knorr-Bremse Technology Centre, Kongsberg Automotive Technology Center, Kuebler Automation, Mahindra and Mahindra, Minda Industries, MTU India, Renata Precisions, Škoda Auto Volkswagen India, Tata Elxsi, Vulkan Technologies, Wirtgen India, Wuerth Industrial Services and Ziehl-Abegg India.

The 2nd Quarterly Block EBMP was inaugurated a week later, on Saturday 19th February 2022. Unexpectedly but excitingly, 20 managers from diverse states such as Haryana, Karnataka, Kerela, Tamil Nadu and Telangana flew down to Mumbai and arrived at IGTC to attend the first block of nine days incorporating modules on Economics for Managers, Financial Management and Management Accounting, Marketing Management and Emerging Leadership. They belong to the organizations; Basell Polyolefins India, Decimal Point Analytics, DHL Logistics, Lavazza India, Lorch Welding Products, Sartorius Stedim India, SMS India and Voith Turbo. 

Both batches were warmly welcomed and inducted into the programme at their respective venues by Radhieka Mehta, Director IGTC and the IGTC team. Although the month was extremely hectic and demanding, it was gratifying to see 100% attendance in class thus bidding adieu to the online and hybrid world, to see new friendships emerge during the coffee breaks, to see books being borrowed again from the library and to hear the genuine applause and followership for the faculty at the end of the day!

Given this trust and faith by the participating managers and their organizations, IGCC stands committed to delivering excellence in management training and recreating the ‘phenomenal’ IGTC experience.
