Course Highlights

Post Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM)

The Two years full time PGDM programme prepares students to assume leadership roles. The curriculum is continuously evolving with a supporting pedagogy in sync with the changing needs and aspirations of the corporate sector. The programme is approved by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), Ministry of HRD, Government of India, New Delhi. The programme offers dual specialization.

The first three academic terms focus on course work. The remaining 3 terms provide students with an opportunity to pursue study in fields of their special interests.
