Hughes broadband satellite based education platform to be used by IIM-Cal

BANGALORE: Indian Institute of Management (IIM) - Calcutta has announced that it would offer three new courses on the DiRECWAY Global Education platform catering to working professionals and entrepreneurs looking at enhancing their management skills.

The DirecWay Global Education platform is a broadband satellite based education and training service for students, executives and corporates from Hughes Escorts Communications Limited (HECL). The programs will commence from August first week and are priced at Rs. 71,250, Rs. 60,000 and Rs. 38,000 respectively.

The one-year program will be beamed across 48 classrooms in 32 cities in India. This will effectively allow IIM Calcutta to reach a wider set of audiences across the country. The programs are tailored keeping in mind the limitations of working professionals with respect to time and flexibility of attending classes in the evenings. The work experience required for all the 3 programs is between 5 to 10 yrs, stated an official release.

We have successfully leveraged our expertise in satellite communications to create this application and the tie-up with Indian Institute of Management, Calcutta is an endorsement for the reliability, and relevance of the DiRECWAY Global Education platform."
