The Robert Bosch Kolleg (RK) - Germany and Indian Institute of Management - Bengaluru collaborated for the RK General Management (RKGM) program which was a first of its kind. It is a General Management program aimed at top level executives in Bosch.

This program has been extremely successful in Germany as a quick way to fill in the knowledge gap. It not only provides the knowledge on conceptual framework but is blended with learnings in the form of processes, methods and practices followed at Bosch. It covers various topics to enhance knowledge on Business Environment, Functional Knowledge, Individual and Organisational Competencies and to bring about a Strategic Perspective.

The management gets an updated empowered knowledge bank loaded with fresh management inputs which can deliver results with better efficiency and freeing their time from small decision making process and counter verification of the process to the last end. This program intends to provide executives with necessary exposure to current trends in Management and support them in better handling of professional demands in a globalised, matrix environment, and also help increase networking among managers at high levels across Bosch entities in India.
