The design of this programme and its structure has been finalized after discussing with many professionals, management teachers, bureaucrats and captains of industry. The 2 year programme has four semesters with internship of ten weeks in April, May and June after the end of the second semester.
Mr. Jayesh Ranjan, IAS, Principal Secretary, IT &C and Industries, Government of Telangana is the Chairman of our Advisory Board for the Programme. The programme enjoys significant support in the Hyderabad industry circles and benefits from the large network of ASCI.
ASCI has World class facilities to conduct the PGDM programme. A separate high-end computer simulation lab with adequate software has been created to enable the students to work on simulation, Big Data and Artificial intelligence.
The programme also focuses on imparting practical skills and aims to make behavioural changes through non-credit courses like digital marketing, public speaking, personal effectiveness coaching, mathematical modeling and other such market relevant topics which are often times missing in the curriculum of other B-schools. The programme also benefits from the location of ASCI which is in the heart of the Hyderabad City, a thriving metropolis with a growing IT, Pharma and ITES industry.
Many top executives of the local industry regularly interact with the students and deliver lectures to them, further enriching the course and making the students market ready. The students are also encouraged to conduct seminars and conferences on issues of current interests which helps them in developing managerial and leadership qualities. Regular industry exposure visits are organized for the students, so that they may gain from real life exposure.
The Programme is truly enriching with a lot of learning opportunities. The daylong schedule typically begins at 0930 hrs and goes on up to 1730 hrs. The Programme is therefore rigorous in terms of schedule. Accordingly, students are expected to put in long hours of work.
A gamut of sports and games activities are available for students like Chess, Tennis, Table Tennis, Badminton, Carroms, etc., Students are encouraged to use the on-campus gym facilities.
