The portal acts as the initial point of contact for individuals planning to engage in a rigorous and top-notch learning experience to train and develop and upgrade. It provides a comprehensive range of courses in Data Science, Finance, Leadership, Human Resources, and Information Systems. The online certification programmes will be conducted for a span of four to six weeks. Course modules have been deliberately crafted to instruct students in real-world problems in the business sector. The choice between synchronous or live programmes and asynchronous or self-paced programmes is available to students enrolling in these courses. Swayam and Coursera, two online education sites, both offer these courses.
Online@IIMA is a significant milestone in IIMA’s mission since it makes its faculty's knowledge available to a larger group of aspirants throughout the world. According to Bharat Bhasker, director of IIMA, this would not only enable the talent pool to upskill and become proficient more quickly, but it will also remove the geographical barrier to excellent educational opportunities. Everyone who chooses to engage in the online certification programmes will receive the same revolutionary educational experience for which IIMA is renowned. According to Pradyumana Khokle, dean of programmes at IIMA, this one gateway enables the candidates to conveniently access all of the resources of IIMA in one platform and offers a pleasurable learning experience.
In the future, IIMA will also roll out a "Learning Path" module that attempts to advise students on how to switch to or advance their skills in a certain discipline. This "path" will be created with the assistance, guidance, and supervision of faculty members and will be customized for every student.
