Post Graduate Programme for Executives is a unique 15-month dual degree programme in Global Supply Chain Management, started at IIM Udaipur in the year 2013 in collaboration with Purdue University, USA. With general management orientation and emphasis on international exposure, this residential programme is ideal for mid-level managers looking at making a career in the Global supply chain industry.

The first year of placements for the One Year Full Time Post Graduate Programme in Management for Executives (PGPX) saw serious interest and participation from a very diverse group of recruiters. The spectrum of recruiters covered sectors including Management Consulting, Information Technology, Analytics and Logistics offering a wide variety of roles spanning across Consulting, Operations, Analytics, Government Advisory, Product Management, Process Optimization and Strategy. This year’s placement process saw a lot of interest from recruiters such as Accenture, daVizta India Pvt. Ltd., Dell International Services, Ernst & Young, Manhattan Associates, MindTree Ltd., Mu Sigma Business Solutions, Snowman Logistics etc. Manhattan Associates was the largest recruiter, hiring a total of 5 students from campus. The highest domestic offer on campus, was made by daVIZta India Pvt. Ltd.

It was heartening to see the confidence and trust that the Industry exhibited in the programme that was in its first year. The entire hiring was in the lateral domain and the supply chain depth coupled with the international exposure of the candidates landed them in fairly senior positions.
