Business Management Program for Defence Officers:  6 months program in Campus

The Indian armed forces constitute one of our most valuable workforces. The uniformed officers, irrespective of their skills and level, contribute their highest level of services to the safety and security of our great nation. The officers/veterans are professional, disciplined, and enthusiastic leaders. Today’s business organizations are under constant pressure due to the VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous) landscape continuously reshaped by digital transformation. The ability of officers/veterans to navigate through the VUCA landscape with maturity and calmness and bring the best solutions, their creative and logical thinking, meticulous planning, and dynamic decision-making are the most sought-after skillsets by corporates. The experience the officers/veterans possess is sufficient to obtain business organization opportunities, but a formal certificate course in business management will be an added advantage.

The business management course has been developed to provide a challenging learning experience that focuses on real-world problems, and solutions. It offers new information and tools to address corporate challenges. The program will concentrate on all functional aspects of management, including general management, the economics of business, organizational behavior and human capital management, marketing management, financial management and accounting, operations management, strategic management, design thinking, innovation, and entrepreneurship. This program serves as a platform for our veterans to reorient themselves to their new professional roles in the business world. Not just that, this course will also help aspiring entrepreneurs understand how to manage their own businesses.
