The association between Bosch in India and Indo-German Training Centre (IGTC) runs deep, for 25 years, since its inception. With over 70 alumni of IGTC in Bosch, over a period of time, there are a lot of success stories of managerial and leadership positions being held by their former students.
The IGTC programme has evolved over the years by taking valuable inputs from their partner organizations. Hence, the curricula and the pattern of the course has always been industry relevant. The rigorous internships of students with the organizations help them understand various functional aspects and the entire industry life cycle on the whole. Bosch Group has been a proud partner in aiding this process, by selecting interns every year and ensuring cross functional projects for their learning. Many of these interns and the other IGTC students, have year on year proved their capabilities, and have become a part of the Bosch family as our employees.
IGTC has provided a strong platform for an Industry– Academia interaction. While various industry guest lectures ensure that the students are up to date with the evolving corporate world, IGTC also serves as a forum for industry personas to continuously engage in learning from academia. The Executive Business Management Programme (EBMP) helps young professionals from Bosch to sharpen their managerial prowess and go back to the classroom for advanced skill development. This success of the EBMP partnership is evident from the increasing applicants from within Bosch year on year
One of the admirable interventions of IGTC would be their continuous efforts in bringing multiple German MNCs together on similar topics, for sharing Industry Best Practices. These platforms (like HR Forum) have also served as a brainstorming session for the industry on the whole, to discuss and tackle common issues and roadblocks.
Many such distinguishing practices of IGTC with their partner organizations have helped in creating an environment which fosters continuous learning and healthy growth for the students as well as the industry. On this joyous occasion of their Silver Jubilee, Bosch thanks IGTC for their knowledgeable contribution to the industry platform and wishes them continued success in their years ahead!
