IFMR’s full-time PGDM programme provides quality management education with a strong foundation in Finance. This intensive 2-year AICTE approved programme is now into its 16th year, and has clearly met the expectations of its various stake-holders.

IFMR offers 22 core and approximately 55 elective courses during the two-year programme, spanning 8 disciplines. Unique specialisations offered include Financial Engineering, Banking, Financial Services & Insurance (BFSI), and Data Sciences (i.e. Business Analytics).

An ever increasing base of corporates come to IFMR regularly to recruit students from the PGDM programme. We have a 100% placement record since the inception of the programme.


In the first year, the students get a good grounding across all management disciplines. They then undergo a rigorous two-month summer internship in an organisation. In the second year, the specialisation streams available are Finance, Marketing, IT & Operations, HR, and Financial Engineering, with additional specialisations in Banking Financial Services and Insurance (BFSI) and Data Sciences (i.e. Business Analytics). These are offered jointly with the support of the industry professionals in curriculum design and delivery.

The Finance, IT and Operations streams prepare students to work as Analysts, Consultants, and Managers for IT, Banking and Financial Services.

Human Resources and Marketing students find attractive opportunities in the corporate and banking sectors.

The Financial Engineering specialisation prepares students for a career in investment banking, securities trading, quantitative modelling, risk management, financial consulting, and applied research.
