IIM-Udaipur announces free online management courses

Jaipur, May 6 (IANS) IIM-Udaipur has announced 18 management courses free of cost on its online learning platform Coursera to ensure uninterrupted learning during the nationwide lockdown for its batch of 2019-21.

The courses are offered as elective and voluntary under domains such as Operations, HR, Marketing, Finance, Analytics, etc.

The coronavirus scare had disrupted educational institutes'' functioning, delayed internships of students, and disturbed the academic calendars of B-Schools.

Against this backdrop, Indian Institute of Management-Udaipur has taken the lead in demonstrating the B-School''s strong faculty-driven culture, ensuring students continue their learning.

IIM-U Director Prof Janat Shah said: "Across the world, education systems were not prepared for the impact of COVID-19. Even though this pandemic has caught us off guard, institutions are trying their best to adapt to online learning. At IIM-U, we are setting up infrastructure and processes to move to online learning temporarily. Our faculty are offering short courses on FINTECH, Blockchain, and Strategic Digital Transformation, amongst others, using online platform as mode of education delivery. This initiative will help students utilize their free time more productively."

Addressing the class of 2021, Prof Sandhya Bhatia, Chairperson, Programmes Committee, IIMU, said: "Our efforts are towards establishing holistic continuum academia in times of coronavirus, and ensure that the managers of tomorrow don''t suffer today. IIM-U is looking forward to contribute to our students'' learning objectives. We are offering this opportunity in addition to the regular classes that are planned for the second year."

The Institute said that students could pick one offered course/bundle of courses from the set of credit courses.

The successful completion of that offered course/bundle of courses will make the student eligible for two credits of the second-year course requirement.

Students could substitute the selected course with an IIM-U elective course offering two credits. However, if they wish, students are allowed to take more than the minimum required credits.

In addition, courses are being offered on Supply Chain Management, Marketing, Analytics, Channel Management, Financial Markets, Investment Strategy, People Analytics, New Technologies for Business Leaders, Digital Product Management, and Fundamentals of Project Management.

Besides, the B-school is offering credit-less voluntary courses, some of which would be facilitated by senior faculties such as Institute Director, depending on the count. The course structure was designed to support students'' career requirements.
