Armed forces are one of our most valuable work forces that contribute their highest level of services to the nation. The officers are believed to be highly oriented towards their task. They are self-disciplined, highly enthusiastic, and courageous. They possess high level of leadership ability, and also indulge in the job at hand with highest level of motivation. It is clear that in this technology savvy era, only knowledge-based employment is possible, and generalized experience will not be of help. Hence, we have designed a challenging learning experience that focuses on International Business Management. IIM Indore is delighted to be part of the ambitious Certificate Programme in International Business Management for Defence Officers under Directorate General Resettlement.
