Only top performers can endure at MDI

Management Development Institute (MDI), established in 1973 in Gurgaon, has distinguished itself as one of the reputed names offering business and management courses in the country. Consistently ranked among the top 10 private business schools in India, MDI has created a name for itself on the basis of its rigorous curriculum, learned faculty, excellent infrastructure, placement record and international exposure.

Admissions to the Post Graduate Programme in Management (PGPM) at MDI depends on the CAT score and details filled in the application form, following which the candidates are shortlisted for the Group Discussion and Personal Interviews.

MDI has the distinction of being the first internationally accredited Indian B-school, accredited to Association of MBAs (AMBA) in 2006 and SAQS in 2005. It prides itself in the quality that it offers to students, who themselves have to come through a challenging admission process. Students at MDI are handpicked from the pool of the brightest minds that the country has to offer. Strict criteria and a stringent admission process ensures that only the best enter the school.

The curriculum of the PGPM is designed to develop students’ skills to apply management theories and concepts to live problems of business and industry. The students are expected to absorb and engage with lectures, seminars, live projects, group discussions, assignments, business games, outbound based experiential learning activities, educational excursions, role plays, simulation exercises, field visits and many more. To cope up with such a challenging curriculum, students have to push themselves to the hilt and remain focused. It requires dedicated sincerity and hard work on the part of the students to fulfil the demands of the course.

The bright minds who endure and excel at MDI get to partake of the superior facilities that MDI offers- state of art classrooms, computer centre, library, recreational facilities and so on. Students also get an opportunity to spend a term abroad, to broaden their perspective and open their eyes to international practices. At the same time, MDI hosts international students from various parts of the world, which enriches the academic environment and benefits its own students.

Given the standing that MDI has in the market, it attracts the best names as far as placements are concerned. For the batch of 2014-16, the entire batch of 333 students found placement across various functions- Sales & Marketing (36%), General Management & Strategy (25%), Finance (23%), IT/ITES (9%) and Others (4%).
