If you're a student in India, at some stage you must have thought about attending a B-school. No points to guess the first choice - IIM. According to various B-school rankings, IIM Lucknow is the fourth prestigious IIM in the country. Incidentally, it is the first among IIMs to set up a satellite campus exclusively for Executive Education at NOIDA in Delhi NCR region. This is because unfortunately, not everybody has the luxury to pursue a full-time Masters program. Reasons could be plenty, ranging from family pressure to financial constraints, to unwillingness to quit a decent paying job for a full-time study sabbatical. And yet, many believe that higher education is imperative to take the next leap in your career. With the changing times, prestigious B-schools such as IIM L have realized the need to design courses suited to the needs of working professionals as well.
Since 1984, IIM L has given the country brilliant business leaders. With a legacy of more than 25 years, the institute has made quite a name for itself in the top ten B-schools leagues. The Second Wind, an initiative by The Times Group, the oldest media conglomerate in India, boasting of a rich legacy of over 180 years offers working professionals to leapfrog their career to the next level by offering Executive programs in association with other premier institutes in the country.
IIM Lucknow, in association with The Second Wind, offers students the privilege to learn while they earn through their Executive Program in Advanced General Management (AGMP). AGMP is one-year the blended programme designed especially for entry-level executives with the aim to establish the business management foundation through a 360-degree view of business, its operating environment, and its functional management. The Advanced General Management Program is an exclusive programme that guides executives to hone their business management skills and capabilities.
The transformation aspect of this programme is strongly rooted in all key business functions; Marketing Management, Financial Analysis & Reporting, Operations Management, Human Resource Management, Supply Chain Management, Strategic Management, Organisational Behaviour, Information Technology and Information Management Systems. The programme focuses on Action Learning Projects and Peer to Peer to learning cohorts to understand the similar business challenges and exchange of ideas and perspectives.

Graduates in any discipline with at least 50% aggregate marks from a recognized university and a minimum of 3 years of professional work experience post completion of graduation is eligible to enroll for the program.
The 1-year programme is delivered in blended mode via live virtual interactive classes at the TSW center that offers state-of-the-art infrastructure and an optimal learning environment and classroom lectures for a week within the IIM Lucknow campus.
