The two-year course was started in 2017 for working executives and entrepreneurs who prefer to work and simultaneously pursue a long duration management programme. The ePGP’s end semester examinations and introductory sessions of the subsequent semesters are held at regular intervals. Both the batches, entering into semester IV and semester II respectively, are currently in the campus.

The flexibility of the programme attracts professionals from diverse backgrounds, such as automobile, financial services, banking, power, e-commerce, healthcare and IT. The students have an average work/entrepreneurship experience of 10 years. They study in a collaborative learning environment enabled by Virtual Interactive Learning Platform (VILP) technology.
