Teaching Programs

The main thrust of training is to imbibe a sense of strategic outlook to management problems in the students. The emphasis, therefore, is on management as an integrated process and requires the students to develop a global view of economic, technological, cultural and political environment of the business.

The Institute offers five major teaching programs namely Post Graduate Program in Management (PGDM), Post Graduate Diploma in Computer Aided Management (PGDCM), Post Graduate Program for Executives (PGPEX), Post Graduate Diploma in Business Management (PGDBM) and Fellow Program in Management (FPM).

The PGDM Program is designed to meet the challenges of rapid changes in our society. Students are continually exposed to scenarios that demand structuring of unstructured problems and proposing solutions to complex situations. In 1994, the two-year full-time PGDCM was started, which fulfils the demand for global business managers, by reorienting management education to keep pace with the changing needs of the world. It is a distinctive program with special emphasis on Information Technology (IT) and its application to business. This three year PGDBM is an evening program, also launched in 1994, to offer working executives the opportunity to gain insights into various facets of management. The FPM offers an opportunity for full-time advanced study and research at doctoral level in management and related areas.
