Main programs at the Institute
Our institutes offer the highly sought-after Post Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM), Post Graduate Diploma in Management-Marketing (PGDM-Marketing), Post Graduate Diploma in Management-Retail (PGDM-Retail) and Master of Management Studies (MMS) programs. Across these programs, students are not only encouraged to think academically, but also as leaders and responsible contributors to the society. Our curriculum is based on learning in practice illustrated by field projects, case studies and off-summer projects. Although individual development is paramount, the spirit of team work is equally cherished as an ideal. Students are expected to work in teams for their projects, case study presentations and also as committee members of various student led activities that help them uncover their latent talent. We groom students through the vehicle of these programs and aspire to raise socially responsible business professionals.
