Post Graduate Programme in Human Resource Management (PGP-HRM)
Fierce competition and the need for continuous change have created a critical role for HR professionals in business organizations. MDI offers a unique PGP-HRM programme to develop HR professionals with well-rounded business perspective.
PGP-HRM attempts to groom holistic business managers with:
- Capability to manage uncertainty & complexity
- Sensitivity to people, potential and their needs: Local and Global
- Capability to create innovation in people practices
- Capability to manage diversity in thought and action
- Capability to network among peers and industry thought leaders
- Global mindset with flexibility and resilience
The PGP-HRM programme is designed and reviewed by faculty members and continuously draws from the contemporary business developments, and ensures a rich academia-industry blend.
The programme is spread over six terms, of three months each. The first four terms are devoted to core courses encompassing various managerial functions, essential for HR managers to develop into future business partners. The remaining terms focus on inputs in HR and OB through a rich offering of electives from HRM/OB/Strategy/Finance/ areas. Students have the opportunity of interacting with internal faculty mentors and industry guest faculty who facilitate their leadership, change management and networking competencies.
Pedagogy is ‘learning centric’ and not ‘teaching centric’. It is interactive and participative involving fieldwork, case studies, business games, role-plays, simulation exercises, group discussions, experiential exercises, film reviews, application of concepts and structured and unstructured group work and hands-on projects with the industry. Eminent Business and HR professionals, consultants interact with the students besides the faculty from eminent International business schools.
The evaluation system in the PGP-HRM has been designed to foster healthy competition among the students. Students are tested on their ability to understand concepts, acquire behavioural tools, techniques and skills. Application skills are tested through case studies and live projects in organizations. Close to 20 percent of the course is taught by industry practitioners. The evaluation is done by the faculty on a continuous basis. In each course students are awarded a letter grade. The weighted average for all the courses taken by a student in the entire programme would constitute his/her Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA).
On successful completion of the programme requirements, a student is awarded a Post-Graduate Diploma in Human Resource Management, which has the approval of the All India Council for Technical Education, Government of India and is recognized by the Association of Indian Universities (AIU) as equivalent to an MBA degree awarded by an Indian University.
