The German Dual Education System is one of the cornerstones of the successful brand Made in Germany due to which a small nation of only 80 million people is able to be the world champion in exports for six consecutive years.

The model fosters joint educational responsibility between the training centre and collaborating companies, which creates the most unique combination and synergy between learning and working. It also leads to a constant modernizing of the curricula and guarantees an up-to-date learning that follows the developments of the economy.

The system is widely practiced in Germany for over 350 officially-recognized training occupations. It is also adopted in several European countries, notably Austria, Switzerland, Netherlands and France, and for some years now in China, India and other countries in Asia.

"Opportunities for a nation to be dominant on the global map come once in a lifetime. Now is the time for India and the route to achieving the potential is through its young professionals. In the emerging scenario, IGTC is in a unique position. The dual system of training, which is very successfully practiced in Germany, can now be applied in India. Unlike other management schools, only IGTC has the true ability to train young managers both on theory as well as practical experience with the excellent faculty support, your dedicated leadership and the involvement of German companies." Mr. Prasad Chandran, Chairman and Managing Director, BASF Group in India

At Bosch, we have IGTC students working in HR, Accounts, Sales, Controlling, Finance, Purchase, Marketing and that says it all. Our experience with IGTC students has been extremely positive. They have lived up to the potential displayed during training phases. The internship stints also lead to the development of a close and strong bond with the organization. They give the students a clear practical edge at work because theoretical inputs get correlated to actual projects, thereby speeding up the learning curve when they get on to their jobs. Above all, they have good work ethics coupled with a lot of energy and do not come with their heads in the clouds. This is a distinct advantage.? Mr. A. Krishna, Senior Vice-President, Human Resources, Bosch Ltd.

The IGTC post-graduate management programme which adopts the renowned German Dual System of Education is distinctive and unparalleled in India. This business school with which I have been associated for a decade, is a unique model that brilliantly integrates management theory and practice. With the support of all German Companies in India and globally, besides other corporates, it embodies the famed German discipline, academic rigor, pragmatism and lists an enviable faculty. This school will scale greater heights to come, because it provides aspirants with contemporary desirable learning content and employability. I wish the school every success in its future endeavours.? Mr. Sydney Prabhu, Director - Academic and Corporate Boards, Academic Advisor and Faculty at IGTC

IGTC is the best thing that happened to me in my life, the dual system of education blends theoretical knowledge and management skills quite successfully. It has helped me to create new business opportunities, revitalise brands and 'raise the bar' in three top MNCs: BOSCH, Black & Decker and Sony over the last 10 years in varied industries in both B2C and B2B channels. I use my training in my job everyday to deliver exemplary work and I am proud to be an IGTC-ian." Magesh Srinivasan, Regional Sales & Marketing Manager (Middle East /Africa / Dubai), Sony Professional Solutions MEA (Alumni Batch 1998 - 2000)
