SDMIMD plans to consolidate the gains of accreditation in the following ways:

  • The value-based strategic thrust as envisaged in the Vision and Mission statements of the Institute, are sought to be built upon.
  • The outcome management and rubrics in the flagship program are sought to be revised and refined to keep in line with changing needs.
  • While the extent and quality of research has already come in for appreciation, the institute takes steps to have more corporate-based research to take care of decision-making capabilities.
  • The thrust on improved corporatisation will continue, with more programs and online offerings.
  1. All Dimensional Learning

Summer Internship Project at SDMIMD Mysore is designed to provide the PGDM student with an opportunity to work and gain first-hand exposure to the environment, work culture and processes that prevail in real-life organizations. Based on the learning of the first three terms of the program, the student is equipped with the conceptual skills, but lacks the experience of putting this learning into practice. SIP provides the intern an opportunity of learning and decision-making.

SDMIMD requires that every student undergoes such an experiential learning process at the end of the first year of the PGDM program. The Placement Cell will help the students in finding suitable summer projects and will also provide necessary guidance in completing their assignment. Students may be allowed to source a SIP on their own provided the project details meet the requirement of the Institute. In such a case, the concerned organization should provide a written communication to the Institute before a specified date confirming the project.
