The PGPM course consists of learning modules, adapted to current industry requirements, which are delivered by senior technology professionals in management roles. The Program provides detailed learning on matters like Financial Analysis, Organizational Management, Marketing and Product Management, Entrepreneurship, Business Strategy etc.
“Today it is not just the MNCs but also the Indian pure play companies in tech-centric industries that invest in hiring large number of MBAs. I firmly believe that Sunstone education allows better understanding and explanation of business issues of the IT industry. Without a broader knowledge of the business, an IT professional may not be able to contribute to decision making for the organization. So, our focus is to enhance the business, managerial and leadership capabilities of technology professionals so that they can contribute to business leadership of tech-centric organizations.” said, Garg.
