Curriculum, Pedagogy & Assessment

The PGP-DM has evolved in tune with the dynamic needs of the social sector and the response of the ecosystem to the program and its graduates in the previous years.The present curriculum reflects contemporary thought in management education as advocated by Srikant Datar, David Garvin and Patrick Cullen who proposed that a right balance between the skills of knowing, doing and being is essential in management.

Nurturing a vibrant ecosystem

ISDM students are mentored by a select group of experienced professionals holding senior leadership positions across industries and domains. These interactions are centred on making sound professional choices, providing sustained guidance, and enhancing the students’ experience throughout the course at ISDM and beyond.

Realising India is a critical component of the PGP DM. This is a two-week field component unlike the rest of the program which is classroom-based. This district immersion provides students with an opportunity to understand society and institutions in a district and experience the current reality.
