Frequently Asked Questions

  • MBA (WE) is a post graduate program in management offered by IIM Shillong for working executives who desire to upskill their managerial talent and knowledge with minimal disruption in their professional activities.

  • On successful completion of all course requirements, IIM Shillong will award the participants a masters’ degree titled Master of Business Administration (Working Executive).

  • It is offered exclusively during weekends (Saturdays and Sundays) at IIM Shillong Guwahati Center. There are three campus immersion modules (6 + 5 + 2 = 13 days) that happens at IIM Shillong main campus. All sessions are broadcasted live for facilitating online participation from anywhere in the world.

  • Participants can choose to attend sessions either in-person at IIM Shillong Guwahati Centre (or IIM Shillong campus during campus immersion) or they can join online from anywhere in the world for live interactions with the class. Participants also have the flexibility to switch and choose between in-class or online mode during any module of their choice.

  • Classrooms are equipped with world-class IT infrastructure for facilitating live interactions. These include multiple webcams and mics with faculty and other in-class participants. Participants joining online are displayed in a dedicated large screen and just as other in-class participants they are encouraged to engage and interact in live class-room discussions.

  • MBAWE participants joining over online mode attend live sessions along with the rest of the participants attending in-person at IIM Shillong Guwahati Center (or IIM Shillong main campus) for all sessions. i.e. the mode of delivery and capturing is synchronous, and there are mandatory attendance requirements. Whereas, in a purely online/distance mode program, content is shared over relevant platforms where participants capture it asynchronously at their preference. Synchronous mode of delivery is advantageous in having live interactions with faculty and other colleagues and also experiencing the classroom atmosphere.

  • In order to facilitate uninterrupted online interactions, IIM Shillong charges a nominal fee of Rs. 6000 per module for those participants who wish to attend sessions online for any particular module.

  • Candidates who choose to exit after core courses are eligible for a certificate in ‘Executive Program in General Management'. These candidates can later join back within a span of five years for the elective courses to complete and earn MBAWE degree. However, those candidates who wish to get the ‘EPGM’ certificate need to pay applicable GST on their course fee.

  • Participants completing MBAWE degree need not pay any additional taxes. However, participants exiting after the core courses with EPGM certificate need to pay taxes (GST) on the fee paid till module 7.

  • Yes

  • A Bachelors’ degree or equivalent with a minimum three years’ experience is mandatory for joining MBA (WE) program. Specific cut-off criteria and other details can be found in the admissions page.

  • The course design and content of MBA (WE) largely emulates the regular MBA programs offered at IIM Shillong. The same faculty teach all MBA programs. While other MBA programs of IIM Shillong are residential, MBA (WE) program is a non-residential program offered only during weekends for working executives who want to pursue both education and work at the same time.

  • As the program mandate is to develop skills and knowledge of executives who are already working in their respective organizations, IIM Shillong do not provide placement support for MBA (WE) participants.

  • Participants are mandated to visit IIM Shillong for (any) two among the three campus immersion modules. The relaxation to skip one module is kept to accommodate situational circumstances, and we strongly recommend each participant to attend all the three modules. Not many would want to miss out the opportunity to interact with the larger student and faculty community at IIM Shillong, and we look forward to hosting the entire batch for all the three modules.

  • Textbooks will be provided in hard-copies for candidates opting for contact classes at IIM Shillong Guwahati Center. For others, e-book version of the same textbooks will be made available. All other study material (including cases, readings, articles, notes, simulations, etc.) will be made available online for all participants at IIM Shillong LMS platform (Moodle).
