Tata Motors and Symbiosis International (Deemed University) have launched a two-year management programme (EPGDBM).
The first batch of managers from various functions will undergo this comprehensive general management programme covering operations, finance, people management, supply chain and marketing among other subjects.
The focus is to sharpen managerial skills at multiple levels in the organisation. The partnership with Symbiosis will help provide avenues for collaborative research, content development and knowledge exchange between industry and academia.
Aligned with the Company’s strategic objective, the programme aims to develop talent and nurture the managerial skills of budding engineers and other professionals at Tata Motors.
The EPGDBM programme comprises four semesters spread over 24 months, where the programme pedagogy involves concepts learnt in the classroom and applied on a real-time project in diverse functional areas, across Tata Motors. Apart from honing their capabilities, this programme will go a long way in addressing the aspirations of these engineers to complete management education from a top-ranked institution.
Gajendra Chandel, chief human resources officer, Tata Motors, says’ “Today, the business landscape has become very dynamic and there is an increasing influence of disruptive technologies and social media in shaping our lives. Hence, it is important for us to prepare a future-ready workforce that is world class, strategic yet adaptive, has razor-sharp business sense and the innovativeness to lead the vibrant eco system in the marketplace.”
“This partnership with Symbiosis International (Deemed University) is a win-win opportunity that will help us push the boundaries of learning for our managers and help create a repository of case studies and related teaching capabilities. The combined force of industry and academia working together is a powerful engine for innovation and value creation, leading to higher economic growth. We are simultaneously gearing up to roll out more such collaborative tie-ups with academia to develop industry-ready resources,” he adds.
Recognising the scope to strengthen its talent base, this partnership will provide an opportunity to Tata Motors’ employees to further develop their management skills. It will help the Company build its functional expertise and provide developmental opportunities to its employees.
