Post-Graduate Programme in Management

The two year full-time Post Graduate Programme in Management (PGPM), which was launched in 1994, is the flagship programme of MDI. The Programme is designed to develop professional managers ready to work at responsible positions in a global environment.

Objectives

MDI’s PGPM is designed to nurture students and help them build and enhance their managerial competence. The meticulously structured programme helps students:

  • Understand the social, economic, political, technological and ecological environment of modern society and its characteristic values
  • Become effective leaders, who can achieve results beyond expectations and transform organizations
  • Think out of the box, so that they come out with innovative answers, create alternative solutions, and develop entrepreneurial skills
  • Imbibe values of integrity, justice and fairness so that they promote and maintain high ethical standards in management
  • Develop a global mindset so that as future managers they can meet the challenges from international competition

 

Post Graduate Programme in Human Resource Management (PGP-HRM)

Fierce competition and the need for continuous change have created a critical role for HR professionals in business organizations. MDI offers a unique PGP-HRM programme to develop HR professionals with well-rounded business perspective.

Objectives 

PGP-HRM attempts to groom holistic business managers with:

  • Capability to manage uncertainty & complexity
  • Sensitivity to people, potential and their needs: Local and Global
  • Capability to create innovation in people practices
  • Capability to manage diversity in thought and action
  • Capability to network among peers and industry thought leaders
  • Global mindset with flexibility and resilience

 

Post Graduate Programme in International Management (PGP-IM)

The primary objective of the PGP-IM is to provide students with the ability to look at this bigger picture and the associated dynamics. This programme prepares managers and future leaders to develop a global mindset so as to enable to appreciate global economic, political, legal and cultural realities, build networks across geographies, and live and work across cultures.

In the latter half of the last decade, possibly for the first time after the Great Depression, the world at large and its economies of varying proportions came to terms with their vulnerabilities to economic forces. Globalization, competition, greed, irrational fear – you name it and it has been arraigned as the cause. It’s a no brainer that managers of today need to be equipped with contextual abilities and skills to perform effectively across markets that span vast geographies. Also, imperceptibly but surely, terms such as competition, market share grab and profit maximization are yielding to co-opetition, maximization of collective value and sustainability.

Regardless of the size of a company, the scale of operations, or the industry, globalization is no longer an option but a strategic imperative. Opportunely, the complexion of internalization in India has moved beyond mere imports and exports or the entry of foreign companies into the Indian markets. Indian companies are a force to reckon with in the international arena.

The Post Graduate Programme in International Management, launched by MDI in 2006, was the first of its kind in India. The programme is currently offered under an arrangement with European School of Management (ESCP Europe), which has been ranked 4 for the Master in Management worldwide and 12 for ESCP Europe. MDI is looking to add to the list of partnerships in order to afford its students greater choice of place of study.

The PGP-IM is a programme delivered partly in India (MDI) and partly in Europe (ESCP Europe campuses). The first phase of the programme is delivered at the MDI campus in Gurgaon, while the second phase is currently delivered in Europe at the Paris, Berlin, Madrid, Warsaw, London & Torino campuses (English Track). The students have an option to earn another degree offered by the partner institute on completion of a minimum number of credits and fulfillment of other conditions.

At the end of the on-campus part of the programme, the students carry out industry internships, predominantly in Europe. Living and working overseas make the students understand and appreciate other cultures and develop global mindsets.
