Leadership for a brighter tomorrow
Institute of Energy Management and Research
Prospectus for Two-Year Full Time
Post-Graduate Program in Management
The Energy sector in India is undergoing unprecedented investment and growth. The
private sector has become an integral part of this hitherto public sector dominated industry.
The Power sector has become one of the preferred destinations for investors, with several
multi-billion dollar IPOs in 2009. Dozens of companies have announced projects worth
billions of dollars. Along with the large investments in conventional energy sources,
emerging areas like alternative energy, energy efficiency, environmental management and
smart technologies needed for sustainable development have become key considerations
for corporate management and policy makers.
To tackle these challenges and realize the growth promised by these investments, there
is need for tens of thousands of highly competent managers. However, there has not
been a commensurate investment in developing human resources and management talent
to deliver on these growth plans. Further, there is an urgent need to engage even the
existing managers from the sector with the different facets of sustainable development.
