Partnership offers Certification in General Management Programme at IIMB Campus
Bangalore, December 06, 2016: Indian Institute of Management Bangalore (IIMB) and Toulouse Business School (TBS) will launch the third edition of the partnership programme, on May 8, 2017 at the IIMB campus. This is a unique programme that offers its graduates a GMAE certificate (General Management Programme for Aerospace and Aviation Executives) from Indian Institute of Management Bangalore (IIMB) at the end of the first year and an MBA from the Toulouse Business School (TBS) at the end of the second. The course allies IIMB’s academic expertise in management and TBS’s aerospace competences. This unique combination of managerial and technical expertise also represents a step forward in the understanding of European and Indian markets.
The programme attracts a large number of applications, from a highly competent pool of aspirants from various sections of the aviation industry. A selection committee carries out a careful examination of each application packet. Selection to the programme is based on the candidate’s profile and its fit with the programme’s mission and objectives. The committee keeps in mind the requirement to ensure an adequate batch diversity in terms of background as well as experience.
The average work experience of the delegates is 15 years. They come from well-known national or international companies or institutions, such as the Indian Air Force, Air India, Indigo Airlines, Prime Aerospace Middle East, Airbus Group, Tata, Honeywell Technology Solutions, SpiceJet, and UTC Aerospace Systems, among others.
The GMAE participants attend international seminars and conferences, as well as study academic courses in classroom-based sessions with peer-to-peer learning. As a part of the curriculum, during Year 1, the GMAE participants have study trips to Toulouse (France) and Seattle (USA). During their study trip to Toulouse, they visit the final assembly line of the civil aviation aircraft manufacturer Airbus, the premises of ATR and meet the Aerospace Valley’s executives, a competitiveness cluster in the field of aeronautics, space and embedded systems.
A total of 45 participants from the GMAE Batch 1 are pursuing Year 2, Toulouse Business School’s Aerospace MBA, taught both at IIMB and at TBS, and will graduate in April 2017. The convocation ceremony will be held at the TBS France campus. A total of 48 participants from the GMAE Batch 2 are pursuing Year 1 of the programme and will graduate to Year 2 in May 2017.
The General Management Programme for Aerospace and Aviation Executives makes a valuable contribution to the Aerospace ecosystem where professionals, academics, researchers and students come together to share knowledge and experience and build a global network. That’s one of the many reasons why the programme attracts high-calibre students from all over the world eager to join the programme.
