After working in manufacturing industry for 8 years, I was confident enough to take the next step towards my leadership journey when I joined this course. It was a complete transformation for me as this course not only taught me leadership and management skills but also the core technical skills required for manufacturing industry. .
PGPEX-VLFM evolved me with multi dimensional skills and provided me with a platform to interact with like-minded peers, intellectuals and eminent persons of Industry. Really, PGPEX-VLFM is more about leadership with a purpose than mere a management domain expertise.
In this competitive and fast evolving environment, one require equivalent skill set for both technology and management. VLFM course provides required tools techniques for exploiting the technology with management. The course is designed in a manner that one gets opportunity of interaction with one of the India’s premier institutes i.e. NITIE and IIT-Delhi.
I had been exploring various platforms for programs that meet my expectations. PGP ex VLFM checks all boxes of expectations. And apart from that experiential learning is key attribute. This holistic approach of learning has helped me in multiple ways till date. I appeared innovative and efficient on many fronts. Journey of being visionary leader has started just now .I am sure reflections and learning's will help during professional career.
The peer to peer learning pedagogy of this program has helped candidates to acquire knowledge of the different industries from all the participant of the batch. Candidates of this program were exposed to the areas of Strategy, Marketing, Project Management, Data Analytics, Supply chain, IOT has opened the plethora of opportunities.
The one year of PGPEX VLFM program provides a blend of experimental and live industrial approach to create future leaders that strives to drive the next gen Digital manufacturing. Most of the learning is derived from case studies, knowledge sharing with peers, international trek and live industrial projects. This program not only brings about a change in thought process from small m to big M but also provides a vision to construct new horizons.
PGPEX-VLFM equipped me with multi-dimensional skills and provided with a platform to interact with like-minded peers, intellectuals and eminent persons of Industry.VLFM takes a total approach to self-development. More than the classroom teaching, I learned a lot outside the classroom, from faculty, staff, Industry experts, Drona-Talks and my fellow students as well.
Attending NITIE & IIT Delhi through PGPEx VLFM program has shaped me into an independent and tenacious individual. The Professor has challenged our academic and professional abilities during the course which results in enhancing our conceptual, interpersonal and technical skills.
IIT Delhi and NITIE Mumbai gave me the opportunity to explore and learn the various aspects of business as well as enhance the technical knowledge. Both the institute focus on providing the best of the theoretical world and when combined with the CII Gurukul sessions it's a plethora of learning and experience to absorb. The Drona lecture series is a excellent mode of learning from the industry leaders.
The best thing about VLFM was incredibly supportive Professors and the curriculum which is based on real world problems and its resolution with simulations. I have learnt so many modern topics such as ML, IOT, Supply Chain Analytics etc. . I believe I am more confident in myself and my professional abilities now.
The joint PG Diploma program for executives designed for achieving excellence in manufacturing management is a unique program having flavours of management and technology. The program has been developed by considering the Bloom’s Taxonomy and inputs from industrial leaders and academicians having a vast experience in the field. The curriculum not only includes processes, systems, management using conventional tools but also with modern computational tools like AI and ML. After the approval of Senate of IIT Delhi in 2020, starting with this batch, this programme will run as a Joint Diploma programme between IIT Delhi and NITIE and candidates will be able to receive a joint diploma certificate. The programme was earlier offered under the Continuing Education Programme mode at IIT Delhi. The last three batches of students graduated have developed unmatched skills in the area and their placements have been a testimony to this fact. I believe that the future students in the program will immensely benefit from this programme given the modern curricula being followed and the pedagogical styles of both the institutions. I wish all success to the program and my best wishes to the candidates.

Since its inception, it has been on the forefront in delivering to the needs of the industry and has constantly evolved to tackle complex challenges of the industry through a thriving industry academia interaction. I am pleased to introduce you to a very unique program that blends technology and management education in the right proportion to nurture the aspiring professionals to become the next generation game changers of the manufacturing and its associated sectors. Post Graduate Program for Executives – Visionary Leadership for Manufacturing (PGPEX –VLFM) is a one year full time residential Post Graduate Program for mid and senior level managers launched by NITIE in collaboration with IIT Delhi. The program attracts professionals from diverse engineering backgrounds enabling them to gain a cross–functional outlook and develop their aptitude, attitude and determination to succeed at the highest level. Participants of this course will obtain proficiency in the latest tools and techniques used for enhancing and improving Industrial productivity. The uniqueness of this program lies in the amalgamation of “Breakthrough Management” and “Five Step Discovery Process” envisaged by Padmashri Prof. Shoji Shiba along with NITIE’s trademark management approach and latest technological advancements in the manufacturing domains from the stalwarts of IIT Delhi.
Thus this program will help in the development of multiple competencies in students and will help them carve a unique identity of their own to fit the techno–managerial roles and establish themselves as assets to organizations they work for as they strive for triple bottom line.
