The Executive-Fellow Program in Management (E-FPM) is the part-time doctoral program of the International Management Institute (IMI). The program has been designed to provide a holistic and enabling research eco-system for Working executives and Academicians who seek to achieve the scholarly award. The program structure focuses on preparing the candidates, through a rigorous and well-crafted path that helps them achieve excellence in career trajectories such as academics, research & consultancy assignments, as well as research and analytics based corporate roles. The program mix involves critical core courses, in-depth and research based courses related to the domain interest of the candidate, individually pursued self-study courses and at the core lies the topic-of-individual-interest, that ultimately leads to the candidate’s thesis. more
