Training, based on the German Dual System of practical and theoretical learning, has been one of the key roles and services of the German Chambers of Industry and Commerce abroad. To extend this service to member companies in India and to provide them with a common management training platform, the IGCC established the Indo-German Training Centre (IGTC), Mumbai in 1991, Chennai in 2005 and Bangalore in 2008.
The Indo-German Training Centres are centrally located in the heart of the city, which makes them easily accessible for the student community and enables close collaboration with the local organisations. They are fully air-conditioned, wi-fi enabled training facilities. Spacious classrooms, equipped with audio visual aids provide the right ambience for the faculty and the students to nurture their teaching-learning process. A well-equipped in-house library provides the necessary knowledge resources. All the IGTCs share a common vision under the aegis of the Chamber and conduct the following programmes:
Flagship 18-months, full-time programme based on the famed German Dual System to nurture future management trainees for German and other IGCC member companies.
One-year programme conducted on alternate weekends to equip middle management executives of member companies with a holistic, cross-functional exposure to all aspects of management.
Open Training Programmes and Customized Management Development Programmes based on the training needs of the member companies.
The training is intended to improve the performance and effectiveness of the employees by highlighting real-time cross-cultural business scenarios backed by research and facts.
