Post Graduate Diploma in Management (Part-Time) programme consists of nine Trimesters. The first four trimesters primarily focus on basic courses to build a foundation of knowledge and skills required for more specialized study in various functional areas, to be pursued in the second year (fifth and sixth trimester) and third year (seventh, eighth and ninth trimesters) of the programme, during which electives will be offered to enable the participants to pursue in depth learning in the area of their specialization. The range of elective courses has been carefully planned to meet the needs of students, society, and the prospective employers.
In the sixth, seventh, eighth and ninth trimesters, the students have to opt for eight electives in addition to the six compulsory courses. The electives cover two functional areas in management which would equip the graduates with multiple functional skills.
Besides, each student undertakes a project study under the guidance of a faculty member during the third year with the aim of gaining an insight into actual corporate realities by studying a business problem or a situation and work out solutions by applying concepts and analytical tools learnt during the programme.
The project study is undertaken by the students from the beginning of seventh trimester and the final submission is at the end of ninth trimester.
The 'End Term Project' is carried out by the 3 year students wherein they are required to submit a report containing their research and findings, in support of candidature for the professional qualification.
