Course programme

The objective of the PGDCM Programme is to create business professionals who would know how to apply ICT (Information and Communication Technology) in making a difference in business and economy. The programme is an outcome of the felt need for weaving a general management programme around ICT to develop a business curriculum that would train managers for an increasingly global and information rich future.

The programme covers the following spheres of learning: (a) understanding different domains of organizations and related functional areas of management; (b) understanding the role of ICT in Management; (c) understanding of ICT enabled enterprise systems; and (d) understanding tools and methodologies of business analytics with the aim of using data creatively for better decision making.

In the revised course structure effective from academic year 2008-09, all compulsory courses get over in the first year. The list of compulsory courses is developed around the following five Building Blocks: (i) understanding the basics of disciplines and functions of business management; (ii) understanding human and organization behavior; (iii) understanding the environment and society; (iv) knowing ICT tools well; and (v) knowing application areas of ICT. The core curriculum develops essential skills and knowledge in the areas of economics, organisation behaviour, finance and accounting, management control, marketing, human resource management, information systems and quantitative methods.

In the second year, the students choose electives from functional and ICT-related areas. In addition, they also complete a year long industry/research project on an ICT-related topic. An ICT-related course or topic is one that either dwells on an ICT or discusses usage of ICT in one or more functional area.


In the context of increasingly complex and dynamic business situations, a major challenge in any organization is the efficient and effective management of its processes and products/services. Managing processes and products involves design, production and delivery at a low cost while maintaining high quality and customer satisfaction. Operations Management focuses on these managerial issues that are very critical to the success of any type of organization. Presently, the major thrust areas are Supply Chain Management, Project Management, Service Management, New Product Development, Operations Strategy and Quality Management.

Quantitative tools and techniques are critical facilitators in managerial decision making. In this pursuit, fields like operations research, mathematics and statistics play a very critical role. Inputs received from courses in these fields help the students in assimilating the managerial concepts they receive in courses offered by other functional areas like Finance, Marketing and Behavioral Sciences, among others, in addition to Operations Management.

The faculty members of the group are involved in state-of-the-art research in various areas of operations management and quantitative methods. The group offers several elective courses focusing on recent trends in operations management and quantitative techniques. It also has a strong presence in consulting and in offering management development and in-company training programmes.
