NEW DELHI: Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan’s SP Jain Institute of Management and Research (SPJIMR) has revamped its Post Graduate Programme in Development Management, (PGPDM). “After 11 years of learning and observing the recent impact of COVID on society, the programme has been redesigned with a greater emphasis on wise innovation and change management for sustainable development,” the institute said.

The 12-month executive management programme aims to develop innovative leaders for the social development sector that includes NGOs, foundations, the CSR function of corporate organisations, and social enterprises.

“With 19 cohorts over 11 years, the program has impacted 274 organisations across 21 states of India, with PGPDM alumni serving as founders, heads, trustees and directors of NGOs, and as social entrepreneurs, CSR managers, programme officers and social sector consultants,” SPJIMR said.

The programme was introduced in 2011 as Indian businesses were attempting to meet their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) goals and NGOs were trying to improve the effectiveness of their interventions, so as to successfully secure large grants and CSR funds.

The SPJIMR admissions process 2022 for the 20th cohort is underway and the last date for submitting applications is April 10, 2022, with the cohort commencing the programme on May 7, 2022.

The fees for corporate or international NGO sponsored candidates are Rs 3,00,000 and for self-sponsored or other NGO candidates is Rs1,50,000.

Briefing about the programme, the institute said, “The new delivery structure of the programme blends the efficiency of online learning with the networking and relationship building that comes through in-person interactions. The programme is modular and enables participants to continue working at their current organisations.”

The programme consists of 30 courses, delivered over six contact periods of two weeks each. The first and the last contacts are residences held on SPJIMR’s Mumbai campus, while the remaining four contacts are delivered online on weekends and weekday evenings.

What better place to develop passionate and competent leaders than at SPJIMR - the institution which pioneered socially responsible management education in India.”
