Projects are a fundamental part of every company's business plan. India needs more than 70 lakh project managers in the next ten years, and the potential talent gap puts at risk US$23.4 billion in GDP from 2017-27*. To address this need for skilled project managers, IIM Calcutta's Advanced Programme in Strategic Project Management aims to equip mid and senior executives with the ability to plan and effectively manage projects in their organisations.
