After a recent SC ruling this April that recognises Transgenders as ‘third gender’, MICA has decided to include Transgenders in its application process, for its next academic year.
To begin with, MICA
will be applying this decision to its 3 major residential programmes,
the Post Graduate Diploma in Management-Communications (PGDM-C), the Post Graduate Certificate Programme in Crafting Creative Communications (PGCP-CCC) and the Fellow Programme in Management-Communications (FPM-C). Its online programmes will soon follow suit. Nonetheless, the admissions will still be based on merit.
Expressing MICA’s take on the same, Dr. Nagesh Rao, President and Director at MICA, said, “MICA extends a warm welcome to transgenders interested in applying for our programmes. We believe their presence on campus will add to the dynamic diversity of our student profile and thus enrich the exposure and knowledge exchange on campus. We will be glad to add more members to the MICA family!”.
Having flagged off its application process for the 2015-17 PGDM-C batch, offering 180 seats in total, MICA will be considering online applications till January 18, 2015.
Established in 1991, MICA is the first residential institute in the country and perhaps in the Asia-Pacific region, dedicated to creating Leadership in Strategic Marketing and Communication.
Its spirit lies in its grasping of contemporariness, addressing the needs of an ever-changing environment. The MICA brand assures effective delivery of Strategic Marketing and Communication solutions to the industry, government and community.
Today, it is the alma mater of professionals serving in leadership positions in some of the best known companies in India and the world, in marketing, brand management, research & analytics, advertising, media, digital and other strategic marketing and communication-driven businesses.
