Course Details

  • Mode: Full time
  • Duration: 1.5 Years

This Post Graduate Program in Digital Governance and Management (PGP-DGM) leading to the award of Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree was launched by the Indian Institute of Management Visakhapatnam (IIMV), an institution of national importance, under the aegis of the National e-Governance Division (NeGD), Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY), Govt. of India (GOI). The second batch of the Program (2020-22) is scheduled to commence on 14    September    2020 (Monday), for which, reporting and registration at IIMV campus will also be held on the same day. 

The Program is of 18-month duration, spread over 4 terms of 4.5 months each. It is a blended-learning model with a judicious combination of traditional and virtual class-room modes. This is in tune with the importance and rising trend of such (on-line) programs being offered by educational institutions nationally and internationally. Blended-mode of course-delivery addresses the constraints of working professionals in having to be away from work for extended durations of time, typically necessitated by fully on-campus, residential programs. 

The Program is designed for an immersive and active learning experience for participants. The selected candidates will be required to complete the 'Domestic component' as well as the 'International component' of about 2 weeks at an international institution/university.
In addition, participants would be required to carry out a Capstone Project of practical importance, with potential for implementation in the Digital Governance & Management space.
