Young business professionals in India received a boost to their existing education. In a joint move Pearson of India and the National University of Singapore (NUS) Business School played a vital role in launching the Emerging Leaders Management Acceleration Program (ELMAP), a blended executive program for the benefit of the young brigade.
The program comes with an affordable fee structure which offers to converge into India business skills and superior content from NUS for in-depth understanding of various functional areas of management and leadership.
“We are aiming at those working professionals who want to study in India but at the same time want the touch of global skill set and knowledge, said Varun Dhamija, Director, Pearson Professional Programs in an exclusive chat with BW Education.
Working professionals with 2 to 10 years of work experience, who wish to make an impact in cross-functional teams or coordinate with multiple business functions, would benefit most from the six-month part-time weekend course.
IT IS A JOINT EFFORT BY PEARSON INDIA AND NUS BUSINESS SCHOOL
“With this specially customised program tools will be developed to study and solve business problems for emerging leaders, effectively lead individuals, groups, and organizations, and ultimately rise to the next level in their enterprises,” Varun added.
The program will arm participants with the basics of leadership, business strategy, marketing and sales management, big data, service operations, supply chain management, business innovation and finance analytics.
Dr. Vishal Narayan, Program Director, NUS Business School said, “In the present increasing competitive business scenario, skilled professionals are required to possess a range of different skills to get into the shoes of leadership. These professionals should be apt towards offering broad cross-functional perspectives and possess the qualities of problem solving.”
The direct-to-desktop ‘live-online’ classroom sessions with NUS Business School faculty members can be consumed by students from anywhere.
