The PGDM program at IFMR is not an end in itself, but a means to an end. It is a degree designed to give you the ability to develop your career to its fullest potential, at an accelerated pace. From the powerful life experience at IFMR, the three main value propositions you will get are : Skills, Network, and a Brand you can be proud of.
These include the “hard skills” of economics, finance and accounting, marketing, operations, human resource management, and strategic management as well as the “soft skills ” of leadership, teamwork, ethics, and communication that are so critical for effective management. The students at IFMR acquire these skills inside and outside the classroom. Since the programme attracts people from different parts of the country and cultures, the program leverages these differences and translates them into learning opportunities.
IFMR boasts of passionate teachers who drive the Institute’s mission. Our faculty hold Ph.Ds from top universities in the US and from IIMs/IITs and other leading universities in India, and are devoted to research and teaching. Our students get the fullest benefit of learning from such highly qualified and committed faculty.
The programme offers access to a network with students, alumni, faculty, business and community leaders. Placement is the prime facilitating network at IFMR. This network can be very useful when beginning a job search, developing a career path, building business relationships in your current career, or pursuing expertise outside your current field.
Networking does not have to be a separate pursuit from academic study or even from recreational activities. Choose the networking events you attend carefully, go with a goal in mind and try to demonstrate your interest. At IFMR, we have several activities throughout the year to choose from to get active in.
IFMR is a recognised brand that signifies management and leadership training. The strength of a school’s brand is based on the programme’s history, its ability to provide students with technical skills and opportunities for personal growth, and the reach of its alumni and industry network.
Our students go through a meticulous two month summer internship in some of India’s leading companies. We also offer several scholarships to meritorious students to nurture talent.
Welcome to the learning experience at IFMR!
