A famous saying of “You will never win if you never begin” holds true for our new batch of Executive participants who began their one year journey with such conviction and optimism. Designed for mid-career professionals, this programme inaugurated in 2009 is ideal to equip high performing managers with a holistic and cross-functional exposure to all aspects of management.

The 3rd batch of the EBMP comprises 29 participants from Indo-German member companies like BASF India, Batliboi, Beckman Coulter, Bosch, HDFC Ergo, Kuebler Automation, Larsen & Toubro Infotech, MAN Turbo, Norddeutsche Landesbank, New Multifab Engineers, Rittal, Siemens, Sauer Danfoss and Seepex India with an average of 10 years of work experience. They have come from diverse functional areas and departments of their organizations like Accounts & Finance, Administration, Corporate Communications, Design & Development, Information Technology, International Relations, Operations, Packaging, Quality Assurance, Sales & Marketing and Technical Services.

The inaugural ceremony of the EBMP on 14th July, 2012 commenced at 10 am with the welcome address by Ms. Radhieka Mehta, Director IGTC. She welcomed the participants and expressed that given the rich and diverse work experience of the participants, experience-sharing is one of the highlights of the programme with each batch offering unique learning contexts. The lamp of knowledge was lit to mark the auspicious beginning. Thereafter each participant briefly introduced themselves and expressed their enthusiasm to share and learn as much as they could. Participants were handed over a welcome kit at the training centre which incorporated some valuable reading material for the candidates on HBR’s 10 Must Reads – The Essentials and a book named Finance sense which would be extremely useful to them in their course.

This was followed by an inaugural address by Dr. Naik who emphasized the fact that this one year curriculum will facilitate greater depth in the learning process and accelerate their career graph in the corporate world.
