Administrative Staff College of India (ASCI), Hyderabad, has planned to launch a globally recognised and internationally-accredited dual degree Executive MBA programme for the benefit of practicing managers. The new capacity-enhancement initiative is likely to be launched from October and includes a month-long study in Europe.
The distinctive feature of the programme is that participants need to attend classes only for 15 weeks (including 4 weeks in Ljubljana, Slovenia) spread over a period of 18 months, so that the work schedules of neither the individuals nor their sponsoring institutions are disturbed in any significant way. The focus of the course is on participants analysing in depth their organization specific challenges and opportunities and coming up with pragmatic strategies and practical solutions, it said.
ASCI is an independent, autonomous and self-supporting public purpose institution. It was established in 1956 at the initiative of the Government and the corporate sector. ASCI believe that progressive and proactive companies could leverage on this programme as an enabling platform for enhancing the competencies and capacities of its human resources.
