SPJIMR Redesigns Development Management Programme For Post Covid World

After 11 years of learning and observing the recent impact of Covid on society, the Post Graduate Programme in Development Management (PGPDM) has been redesigned with a greater emphasis on wise innovation and change management for sustainable development

Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan’s S.P. Jain Institute of Management and Research (SPJIMR) has revamped its pioneering Post Graduate Programme in Development Management, (PGPDM) that began in 2011, and commenced the admissions process for the 20th cohort of the programme. 

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 programme 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. 

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. Programme participants become part of SPJIMR’s global alumni and become members of a larger sustainable social innovation community that is nurtured by SPJIMR’s Centre for Innovation in Sustainable Development.

The admissions process 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 07, 2022.
