The programme sensitizes the participants to the contemporary concerns facing the Government and the Corporate Sector, as also the country as a whole

This programme has factored in the inputs that would capture the latest approach of the Government to enter into various ventures with private partners. This has thrown open new vistas of challenge for the private corporate sector and requires the private corporate sector to understand and appreciate the business environment on different footings. Accordingly, the understanding of fiscal and financial functioning of the Government would be of great significance for the executives of corporate sector in meeting the challenges of corporate financial management.

The programme addresses the key issues in Public Financial Management. It has been designed with care to capture the myriad issues that impact governance and the corresponding delivery by the public authorities.

The Programme is therefore, designed to facilitate capacity development in the Government as well as in the corporate sector to meet the emerging economic and social aspirations.

The effective delivery of the programme requires proper appreciation of ‘Applied Information Technology’ by all participants.
