Course programme

The Post Graduate Programme consists of a core curriculum (compulsory credit courses and compulsory non-credit courses), a summer internship (compulsory industry training between first and second year) and elective courses (optional courses in the second year).

The core curriculum of PGDM develops essential skills and knowledge in the areas of economics, organisation and behaviour, finance and accounting, management control, marketing, human resource management, information systems and quantitative methods.

After successfully completing the first year requirements, the students undertake summer training of up to ten weeks at the managerial level. Students analyse and offer solutions to specific managerial problems under the guidance of a faculty member as well as a manager in the host company.

Second year students structure their studies to suit their aptitude and interest. They usually develop one or two major areas of expertise by selecting courses from the 60 to 80 electives that the Institute typically offers. Students willing to delve deeper into a topic that is not covered by the elective courses can do a term paper under faculty supervision.

The method of instruction varies. Case studies, lectures, group and individual exercises, class projects, student presentations, simulation games etc., are used in different courses. Many courses bring in industry experts to integrate classroom learning with industry practice.

Economics is a basic discipline in the study of management. There are three compulsory courses in Economics: Macroeconomics, Microeconomics and Indian Economics. These courses deal with the working of the economic system as a whole, with special reference to the Indian situation, as also the functioning of individual microeconomic agents under different types of market structures like competition, monopoly, oligopoly etc. The objective is to give grounding in the basic tools of economic analysis, their application and the institutional specificities of the Indian economic scene.

The optional courses offer some degree of specialization in areas such as Economics of Development, International Economics, Economic Business Policy, Econometric Methods, The Economics of Human Resources, Globalization and Developing Countries, etc.
