PGDM General

The Two Year Full-Time Post Graduate Diploma in Management programme consists of six trimesters. The course structure has been designed to ensure that the management graduates of LBSIM develop a judicious blend of strategic thinking, tactical implementation, specialized knowledge and general management skills. In the three trimesters during the first year, the focus is primarily on basic courses, to build a foundation of conceptual and analytical skills, required for pursuing specialized study in various functional areas, in the second year of the programme. The students have to take 21 core courses along with a Personal & Interpersonal Effectiveness Lab and undertake Summer Training at the end of the year. The students may also have the opportunity to take a foreign language as an optional course during the first year or second year.

In the second year, during the fourth, fifth and sixth trimesters, the students have to opt for 13 electives in addition to the two compulsory courses. This enables them to pursue in–depth and rigorous learning in the areas of their specialization. The electives cover a minimum of two functional areas, which equip the LBSIM graduates to sharpen their multiple functional skills.The participant will also choose an elective from the General Management area in fifth and sixth trimester. Besides, each student undertakes a project study under the guidance of a faculty member during the second year, with the aim of gaining an insight into actual corporate realities by studying a business problem or a situation. The students from the beginning of fourth trimester undertake the project study and the final submission is at the end of fifth trimester.

Program Overview

Summer Training

Each student is required to undertake summer training in a company of repute for the duration of 8-10 weeks as part of course curriculum after the third trimester examination. They also need to undertake a project assignment with the company. This project training provides an opportunity to the students to have a first-hand practical exposure, and allows them to relate the conceptual and analytical skills acquired in classroom to actual managerial practices. The Institute, faculty, as well as the expert from the organization where these projects are carried out, evaluate various projects undertaken by the students.

End-Term Project

The 'End-Term Project' is carried out by the 2ndyear students wherein they are required to submit a report containing their research and findings.

Program Structure

Course curriculum for the Post Graduate Diploma in Management is reviewed and updated every year, particularly for its content, pedagogy, evaluation parameters, and readings. To keep pace with the changing environment, each course undergoes a three-stage updating process. To begin with, the instructor concerned reviews his/her course vis-à-vis the same/similar course/s offered by other benchmarked institutions in the country and abroad and updates the course/s keeping his/her own updated academic and industry insight in mind. In the second stage, instructors discuss the course/s in their respective area meetings and update the same in accordance with the suggestions of the group. In the third and final stage, all the courses are presented for discussion in the Faculty Council. The Council along with invited industry experts, reputed alumni, and representatives from prominent recruiters deliberate on each and every course presented there and suggests changes, if needed. Integration of the total package as well as stakeholder expectation is main concern of the Council. Based on the above outlined review process, updated course contents for the academic year 2017-2019 is presented in this document.
