Skills you will learn

As a graduate of the PGDM programme, you will develop:

  • Communication skills: Ability to communicate in a business context with confidence, bringing in a considered and well-articulated point of view.
  • Strategic thinking: Capacity to think strategically about a company, its business position, how it can gain sustainable competitive advantage, and how its strategy can be implemented and executed successfully.
  • Leadership skills: Ability to reflect on one’s leadership potential, internalise constraints, and future directions for a richer and more meaningful professional career.
  • Problem-solving skills: Finding solutions to complex problems, taking into account different viewpoints, and always keeping the organisational goal in mind.

This programme provides direct instruction from SPJIMR's distinguished faculty, who teach the on-campus programmes. Your learning experience will include live sessions with faculty and industry experts, videos explaining key concepts, and interactive work sessions.

You can learn at your own pace, and the programme offers flexible scheduling to accommodate work commitments. You'll also have three optional on-campus immersions at the SPJIMR Mumbai campus, scheduled for March 2024, September 2024, and March 2025.

The programme offers opportunities for leadership development through the Development of Corporate Citizenship initiative, which includes working with NGOs. Peer learning is also a key part of the programme, with flexible interactive sessions scheduled on Sunday morning or Tuesday evening. You'll have guidance and support from the SPJIMR faculty and programme office throughout the two-year programme.
