ISB to offer one-year programme on manufacturing sector
New Delhi: In line with the government’s ambitious ‘Make In India’ campaign, Indian School of Business (ISB) will soon launch a one-year programme in manufacturing and operations management.
The programme for working professionals would help them have a better understanding of global business opportunities in the manufacturing sector.
The premier B-school, having campuses in Mohali and Hyderabad, plans to start the course from May.
“Manufacturing and infrastructure are the two next big things for India and the new programme is ISB’s contribution to the Prime Minister’s ‘Make in India’ call.
“We aim to bring global best practices to India and contribute our bit to the movement,” Pradeep Singh, who is ISB’s Deputy Dean, told PTI.
Singh is also the CEO of the school’s Mohali campus.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led NDA government is working hard on the ‘Make In India’ campaign to make the country a global manufacturing hub.
The Certificate Programme in Manufacturing and Operations Management (CPMOM) is a joint initiative of Munjal Institute of Global Manufacturing and the Centre for Executive Education at ISB.
Mainly for mid-level professionals as well as entrepreneurs running small and medium enterprises, the course would be spread across six modules.
“CPMOM would help candidates to have a wholesome picture about the manufacturing sector and prepare them to face challenges in the long term,” ISB’s Ashok Mittal said.
Mittal is the faculty director for CPMOM.
