Hyderabad: Institute of Energy Management and Research (IEMR), a first of its kind institute nurturing leadership talent for sustainable development of conventional and renewable energies launched its operations in Gurgaon today with 2 diploma courses.
A brainchild and initiative of experts and industry leaders, IEMR has been created to meet the growing shortage of skilled and knowledgeable managers in the rapidly evolving energy sector.
Dr. B.S.K. Naidu, Chairman, IEMR commented, “Energy is a sunrise sector in India and globally. In India, it contributes to 8% of the country’s GDP and has a tremendous growth ahead, needing thousands of qualified managers. IEMR has been set up with the vision to be the leading management institute focused on the energy sector in Asia. IEMR will become a center of excellence for research and knowledge creation and provide world-class management candidates with a deep appreciation for sustainability and green development to serve as future leaders in India and globally.”
IEMR offers a 2-year post graduate program in management and a 1-year executive post graduate program in management wherein the curriculum is a unique combination of general management education and energy-sector focused managerial knowledge. Candidates get a detailed overview of the critical aspects of the energy sector including green technologies and sustainable development. Further, they can choose one of four domain specializations in addition to functional specializations. The domain specializations are (a) Power (b) Renewable Energy (c) Sustainability and Environmental Management and (d) Oil and Gas.
Unlike traditional management programs offered at the leading business schools, IEMR’s programs and curricula are specifically designed by experienced professionals together with academics to be highly practical and to equip young managers with knowledge and skills that are needed to be productive and have impact immediately in their work-life post graduation.
