Economic liberalization in the post-1977 period shifted the emphasis of entrepreneurship from centralized government control to decentralized market oriented private enterprise. The success of small and large-scale production and commerce in domestic and international trade settings is dependent on efficient management. In this transitional period from planning to market oriented entrepreneurship, and from centralized government control to decentralized market oriented private enterprise, the Postgraduate Diploma in Business Management (m-learning) (PGDBM-ml) provides key training that equips students for these challenges. With the success of small and large-scale production and commerce, from agricultural predominance to industrialization, from satisfying domestic demand to capturing international trading spheres, firms are facing an intense problem in recruiting efficient, knowledgeable and farsighted management staff. Recognizing the need for a changing and competitive world of enterprise, such firms are demanding better qualified executives who are able to deal effectively, not only with day-to-day routine work, but also to make a significant contribution to the corporate planning strategies of the country.

The Postgraduate Diploma in Business Management (m-learning) will attempt to bridge the gap between the academic knowledge gained during the first degree/Diploma and the management needs in the currently competitive business arena. Undergraduates who have performed well in their degree courses will now be given the opportunity to improve their practical skills. Since this course incorporates management related subjects, it will improve their competitiveness in the labour market.

Undergraduates, whose horizon was limited to the public sector, a currently shrinking domain, will now be trained to face the demands of a competitive business environment with confidence. They will be equipped with the skills of analysis, presentation and decision making necessary to succeed in securing attractive employment opportunities and in becoming skillful managers who are assets to their employers.

The PGDBM-ml is a valuable qualification as it fulfills the expectations of employers in the organized private sector who demand qualifications and training beyond a first degree/Diploma.

The objectives of the programme are as follows:

  • To provide the opportunity for graduates with little or no work experience, to pursue a course of study in business management acceptable to the job market.
  • To impart to students a critical awareness of the most up-to-date theoretical and practical knowledge in management and related disciplines and to develop their faculties to use such knowledge in practical problem-oriented situations.
  • To inculcate in the students the skills and the professional competence that will enable them to effectively play managerial roles in competitive situations.
  • To improve the capabilities of the students to proceed towards higher levels of training in Business Management which would involve research.
