Managerial Communication-Presentation Skills (CGMG1008)

Term 1 Credits: 2
Faculty: Prof. Neetu Ganapathy

Course Objective

Business professionals spend nearly 70% of their time communicating. Thus, the
ability to communicate effectively is the most important skill that a manager should
possess. This course is aimed at helping would-be managers to hone their
presentation skills. This course will provide you with the ability to create and deliver
effective presentations.


Students entering the PGDM program are expected to have a certain degree of
proficiency in English and hence this course will not teach the English language or
the use of grammar.


This course will be taught using a combination of lectures, case discussions, videos
and role plays. You will be taken through various exercises to help improve your
ability to articulate your thoughts and thereby improve your business presentation
skills. Your presentations will be recorded and critiqued, allowing you to understand
the areas for improvement.
