Chairman’s Message

ASCI is the oldest management institution in the country established by the government in collaboration with industry way back in 1956. In the last 62 years of our existence, we have made a mark in training civil servants and executives in industry through short term Management Development Programmes and through our Research and Consultancy assignments. Each year we conduct upwards of 200 Management Development Programmes and many of our Research and Consultancy assignments have resulted in policy development, institutional reforms and strategic realignments in government and industry. Our programmes are truly global in reach and relevance.

Last year, participants from 46 nationalities visited our campus for management development programmes. We have an alumni of more than 100,000 serving in various sectors and industry, many of whom are now CEOs and CMDs in large industry/ corporate bodies.

The PGDM programme is aimed at developing tomorrow’s leaders in industry. The two-year diploma programme, approved by AICTE, has been designed to meet the industry’s expectations from budding managers of the next generation. Many new areas are covered in the programme including Analytics, Big Data and Innovation Management. The programme will also allow students to take up dual specialization. ASCI has earned over the years a great deal of goodwill and networks in the industry and this programme will benefit from this.

ASCI faculty assigned for this programme are one of the best in imparting management education and they have a reputation of combining conceptual understanding and application to the real world. Industry experts will also be invited to share their understanding and insights with the students from time to time.

I invite you (students and working professionals) to apply for the Post Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM). I am confident that students, parents and industry at large will find the programme valuable and enriching.

Best wishes,
K. Padmanabhaiah IAS (Retd.)
