The program will start from June 9, 2014. This time it will be the 36th rendition of the programme. The refurbished programme starts on 9th June and will end on September 27th, 2014.
Keeping in mind the need for building certain skills in management faculty of the country, the course has made modifications in the existing content. The programme has been strengthened by a significant increase in inputs in research methodology.
The refurbished FDP will now provide an increased specialized course work in three primary areas of management, namely; Finance, Marketing and Organization Behaviour and Industrial Relations.
These will be in an addition to the available basic general management module that emulates the core content of the erstwhile FDP. These enhancements have been made based on inputs provided by various constituents during IIMA’s recently concluded series of interactions with its external stakeholders.
Last date for receiving application for the programme is May 06, 2014. Participants should have post-graduate level teaching experience or industrial/research experience of at least two years. Preference will be given to participants aged less than 45 years. Since the FDP is being offered in the English language, participants are expected to be fluent in English and good in communication. Candidates will be selected for the programme on the basis of teaching and/or research experience, level of preparedness for the programme as indicated by educational qualifications, and statements of purpose and anticipated benefits to sponsors.
The key objective of the programme is to upgrade the teaching, training, and research skills of management teachers. Till now a total of 703 faculty members have completed their FDP at IIM-A. Programme attracted number of participants from other countries such as Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Maldives, Ethiopia and Sri Lanka.
