Chairman's Message

Dr D Veerendra Heggade
Nearly 25 years back, when we conceived and set up the Management Institute in Mysore, we had very clear goals in our mind – to bring about quality management education with an emphasis on Indian values and ethics. Year after year, we have worked on our academic rigor and orientation in pursuit of this goal. It is heartening, therefore, to see that SDMIMD has lived up to our expectations and has been acclaimed as a leading management institute in the country. 
 
As we make plans for the New Year, we seek to introduce new and contemporary ways of grooming the budding leaders – exposure to real-life cases, live projects in leading companies, international exposure and candid rubrics for assessment. The fact that SDMIMD has been accepted as candidate for accreditation by two International agencies – ACBSP and EFMD (EPAS), has geared the system into full steam and the road to becoming a truly international center for learning is on.
 
Founded on the belief that ethical practices and universal values are the starting point for business excellence, the Institute has grown to set a bench mark in managerial education. Our growing number of recruiters, who return to the campus every year, bears testimony to the rigor, contemporary relevance, and pedagogical innovation that prevails in SDMIMD's beautiful, well-equipped campus, at the foot of Chamundi Hill in Mysore. 
 
Every year, we rededicate ourselves to our goals and objectives, and in these challenging times, we reaffirm our commitment to excellence.
 
With regards,

Dr. D. Veerendra Heggade
