The courses are conducted through an Interactive Learning platform, where participants attend the class from designated classroom centres located at the major cities in India, and the In-Campus programmes that are conducted at the IIM- Kozhikode campus. IIM Kozhikode was the first IIM who took the initiative to launch a 2 year PGP program on Virtual Platform. The "e" in ePGP represents its an Executive program delivered on virtual platform. It was a risk to laucnh the PRIME program of IIM Kozhikode on Virtual Platform. But IIM Kozhikode has taken into consideration the same level of rigour, content, efforts for this program.
