PGDM(Finance) is a two-year full-time programme spread over six trimesters. During the first year, the focus is primarily on building a strong foundation of conceptual and analytical skills required for advanced and specialized courses in finance pursued in the second year. In all, students study 22 courses covering Economics, Human Relations, Quantitative Techniques, Financial & Cost Accounting, Corporate Finance, Information Technology, besides a Personal and Interpersonal Effectiveness Lab.

In the second year, students have to opt for six electives in addition to ten compulsory courses. This enables the students to pursue an in-depth learning in the area of their specialization. The electives cover a variety of relevant areas, such as Treasury Management, Investment Management, Risk Management, and Strategic Accounting & Control. Besides these courses, each student is also required to undertake a Research Project under the guidance of a faculty member with the aim of gaining an insight into the actual corporate realities by studying a business problem in depth. Students take up the project study at the beginning of the fourth trimester and submit the dissertation thesis towards the end of the fifth trimester.

Summer Internship:

Each student is required to undertake summer training in a company of repute for the duration of 8-10 weeks as a part of course curriculum just after the third trimester examinations. This project training provides an opportunity to the students to have a first hand practical exposure and familiarize them to relate the conceptual and analytical skills acquired in classroom to actual managerial practices. The project is evaluated by the faculty members of the institute and the experts from organisations where the project was carried out. If the evaluation falls below the expectation level, the student is not promoted to the second year.
