Evaluation Process

The evaluation process at IGTC is two-fold - encompassing theoretical assessment in every subject in each phase at the Training Centre and practical appraisal by the Training Company after every two-month stint. It is multidimensional and on-going throughout the programme. Examinations may be written, oral, case studies, project assessments - or a combination of all these, and the phase-end evaluations are deemed as final.


Certification

On successful completion of the flagship 18-month programme, the IGTC student obtains certification:

  • Post Graduate Programme in Business Administration certified by the Indo-German Chamber of Commerce (IGCC).

General Management Curriculum

Our Post Graduate Programme in Business Administration is anchored in the fundamentals of a general management curriculum that is structured to take students through the complete spectrum of business education. Beginning with the basic courses on how to give winning presentations, or how a database works, it moves on to foundation courses such as statistics, economics and organizational behaviour. Students are then introduced to the major functional areas of business - marketing, accounting, operations, human resources, finance, international business - and ultimately progress toward in-depth study of these areas, both independently and in synergy with each other.

As an institution that provides holistic management education, faculty are encouraged to adopt diverse pedagogic approaches to enhance the learning experience. Lectures, presentations, individual and group assignments, case studies and business simulations are used as teaching tools. Faculty engage students to build knowledge, create understanding in core business principles, nurture sound thinking by providing challenges and opportunities to explore and take risks. They don’t just lecture – they share information, elicit responses, spur dialogue, and encourage ideas to compete and people to collaborate.

Practical Training @ Companies

In close cooperation with each collaborating company, IGTC facilitates the three stints (in total six months) of practical training in world-class German and Indian organizations. Training is customized according to the company’s post-training absorption requirements in various functional areas - Marketing, Finance and Controlling, Purchase, Logistics and Supply Chain, Production Planning, Human Resources, Strategy, Corporate Communication - to name a few. This enables the company to critically examine and judge the student's capabilities, potential and suitability for their specific needs before committing employment. They acquire trained human resources, who are in tune with the practical reality of the organization and hence, hands-on from Day 1 of employment.

Students, in turn, learn to work responsibly on the live projects assigned by the company and gain lateral exposure to diverse functional areas of business management. Under an umbrella of unstinted corporate support and industry mentors, they gain the opportunity to personally develop themselves, apply their classroom learning to industry projects and become practical solution providers in the corporate arena.

Academic Faculty

The world-class faculty at IGTC personify what it means to be theoretically grounded and practically relevant, by connecting strong academic theories in the classroom to real-world examples and problems facing managers in the business world.

With intelligence and energy, these multidisciplinary trainers excel at communicating their passion for their respective fields.

FAQs for PGPBA Students

The PGPBA at IGTC is a unique business administration programme that facilitates a close interlocking of academic course work and on-the-job training into one learning system. The model functions in close collaboration with IGCC member companies.

The greatest advantage of the IGTC programme is its ability to give a prospective student an exposure to the real corporate world through the stints of hands-on practical training. It focuses on practical managerial skills and intends to instil exceptionally high levels of applied skills in the students – skills useful to them as practising professionals.

On the pure academic front, the programme’s strength lies in its general management curriculum and the quality of academic faculty drawn from some of the best business schools in the vicinity as well as from industry. Given the small batch size, there is a significant amount of personalized attention and emphasis on soft skills, which fosters the right attitude, knowledge, and team spirit, along with interpersonal and communication skills to meet the needs of today's dynamic global business scenario. The inclusion of German language as a part of the curriculum makes the students desirable for several organizations engaging in business with Germany and Europe.

The IGTC programme is, thus, a strong stepping stone to mid-sized or large German multinational organizations, as the companies believe in this participative model, enjoy their involvement and take pride in playing a role toward nurturing young professionals. In its own modest manner, the IGTC programme is a success story of the much sort-after industry-academia model.

The course is split into 4 theoretical ‘phases’, wherein the trainees study a general management curriculum, encompassing the complete spectrum of business education – marketing, finance, operations, HR, IT and strategy. This theoretical learning is interspersed with on-the-job practical training in an assigned collaborating company, wherein the trainees work on live, closely monitored and stringently evaluated projects to apply and assimilate their knowledge. The training stints further teach the trainees to appreciate the variety of social relationships that exist in organisations and to cope with the demands of corporate lives. During the time spent in working with the assigned training company and being mentored by their business managers, the trainees develop their personal skill-set as well as gain an induction to the company’s structure, which in many cases facilitates final recruitment.

Students undergo a comprehensive General Management curriculum under the tutelage of world-class faculty from academia and industry which make them competent for any functional area of management.

IGTC is the only model wherein the corporates are both, a destination for the students and a full partner in their education. They are involved at every stage of the programme - in the selection process, curriculum design and development, practical training and mentoring, and final recruitment.

On an average, around 20 - 25 companies participate in the programme in Mumbai, while approximately 15 - 20 companies participate in Chennai, Bangalore and Kolkata. There are always sufficient organizations to give the students on-the-job, practical training.
A student is allocated to their training company depending upon his/her career interests, requirements of the companies in terms of graduation qualification, and prior work experience (if any). The IGTC administration facilitates this entire process and strives to get a suitable match between the participating companies and the applicants.
Collaborating companies for the practical training and final recruitment vary for the different IGTCs.

The placement process is initiated by the training companies being given the first preference to recruit their respective trainees. The company assesses the trainee’s overall work performance through the three stints of practical training, his or her career interests and job profiles available within the organization to find a suitable employment opportunity. In many cases, this proves to be a win-win for both, as the company gains a hands-on employee already well-oriented to the organization, while the student gains a stable career. In cases, wherein the training process does not culminate into a meaningful placement, the students are assisted with the process of applying for recruitment to various other organizations within the vast Indo-German Chamber of Commerce network.

Every year, the Indo-German Chamber of Commerce awards the Best Performing Student of the Indo-German Training Centres with the Dr. Günter Krüger Award for Excellence. This award sponsors the student’s return airfare to Germany with an objective to give him/her an opportunity to further learn the German language. If possible, IGTC organises a further practical training stint at the German operations of the student’s training company.

The Training Centres (Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore, Kolkata) are fully air-conditioned, wi-fi enabled, modern training facilities. Compact classrooms, equipped with audio visual aids provide the right ambience for the faculty and the students to nurture their teaching-learning process. A well-equipped in-house library, along with memberships to the British Council Library in Chennai, Bangalore and Kolkata and Indian Merchants' Chamber Library in Mumbai provide the necessary knowledge resources.

A small study group at IGTC creates a personalized learning environment for the students. A cumulative strength of 140 trainees per batch is admitted across four centres (50 in Mumbai, 30 each in Chennai, Bangalore and Kolkata).

The programme is a non-residential programme. However, it is intensive and demands up to almost 12 – 14 hours daily during the theoretical and practical training phases.

Stage II is a round of personal interviews with participating member organizations that would like to select an IGTC trainee. Companies assess the applicant not only on parameters such as personal presentation, communication skills, conceptual clarity, leadership, initiative and creativity and lateral thinking, but also keeping in mind, his/her Employability Factor and the Company-Trainee Match. Hence, there is a critical involvement of the collaborating companies in the admission process.
