Register Now

CII Smart Manager Programme for graduates of all disciplines, is aimed at empowering students and professionals to lead by helping them with high quality, practical and ready-to-use management competencies sought by corporates while making hiring decisions.

Unlike traditional learning programmes which limit themselves to theoretical concept knowledge but offer very little in terms of job readiness, CII Smart Manager Programme offers ten core competencies that can be classified into business acumen and people skills that are critical for everyday corporate dynamics.

Employers across sectors and geographies need high quality, employable graduates who have good problem-solving skills, communication skills, analytical skills and who have the ability to work in teams. CII Smart Manager Programme aims to instill such skills in graduates to fill the gap between industry requirement and academic output and produce a well-trained, disciplined work force which is in sync with the ever-changing demands of the corporate world. The programme is a viable alternative to internships, which even when available do not always provide key managerial skills to graduates.

With measurable learning outcomes, the CII Smart Manager Programme will prove to be a key differentiator and help in better campus placements. The programme has inbuilt continuous assessments across modules and provides a Skill-Competency report for better role fitment.

The job relevant programme is taught through self-paced learning content through extensive use of digital media and can be accessed on mobile phone (Android/iOS) as well as on laptops – digital learning content, interactive lectures, simulations, curated videos, case studies via webinars, live projects & feedback.
