The Institute has given a special focus on Management Development Programs (MDPs) and continuous learning since its inception. Over the years the Institute has positioned itself as an interface between the academia and industry through programs it organises for different stakeholders across the nation.
The objective of the MDP programs is to specially design and deliver short-duration quality programs for the working executives of Indian industry, education, and government sectors, in order to equip them with the advanced knowledge and skills in the evolving realities of business and management practices and applications; and also in facilitating their personal contribution to the future success of their organizations. These MDPs furnish the executives a chance to refresh and rejuvenate their knowledge and to reacquaint themselves with present-day thinking and to gain insights and self-enrichment. The participants get chance to familiarize themselves with the latest tools, techniques and skills spanning different streams of management such as Education Management, General Management, Human Resources, Finance,Information Systems, Marketing, Operations Management, Strategic Management and Sustainable Development
A majority of these programs are held in the campus of IIM-Shillong, while a few of them are designed to be held at prominent cities in the country. The programs conducted at IIM-Shillong are residential. The participants are either housed at the MDP residence located in the campus or in the best arranged accommodation in nearby hotels and guest houses. The cool, calm, tranquil, academic ambience of the campus and its lush green hill-top surroundings are highly conducive for study and learning. Round-the-clock internet facility is available on campus through high-speed bandwidth. The Internet connections provide opportunities for the participants to stay connected not only with their near and dear, but also with the business world at large.
The Institute accepts requests from organizations for conducting customized training programs for their executives at different levels, and offers unique programs to suit the business and developmental needs of client organizations. Standard modules from regular MDPs are also combined and adapted, wherever necessary, to suit the requirements of client organizations. Usually companies contact the faculty directly or the Director requesting specific programs to be offered for them.
The duration of these programs ranges from two days to six months depending upon the variety, magnitude and complexity of topics covered. The In-company Programs (ICP) are conducted at the Institute as well as in the premises of the client organizations.
