Set to commence on 11 April 2023, the FDP at IIMA is designed to equip and upskill management educators from India and abroad with techniques of management research and pedagogy. The programme incorporates training in pedagogical techniques including but not restricted to Case Method of Teaching, Case Writing and training in classroom effectiveness. It also covers aspects of carrying out management research including Qualitative and Quantitative Research Methods, Statistical Data Analysis, Multivariate Analytical Techniques and aspects of formulation of research problems and journal publication process. In the process, participants get an opportunity to learn and experiment with a diverse range of pedagogical techniques and gain familiarity with modern tools and techniques of carrying out effective and impactful research.
The programme also includes multiple guest sessions by IIMA faculty members on diverse range of topics which complements and broadens the learning derived from the aforementioned courses.
At the end of the programme, participants are given a certificate.
To enrol into the programme, participants should have an experience of at least two years in post-graduate level teaching or research. Since the medium of communication is English, participants are expected to be fluent in written and spoken English language. Considerations for selecting participants include teaching and/or research experience, level of preparedness for the programme as indicated by educational qualifications and statements of purpose and anticipated benefits to sponsors. As there are limited seats in the programme, the FDP Committee at IIMA will review applications and may conduct telephonic interviews where required to decide suitability for acceptance of candidates into the programme. All details of the admission process are available on the official media.
