Director's Message

Dr N R Parasuraman
It is with pride and pleasure that we present before you the new Institute brochure at the beginning of the academic year 2017-18.
 
The hallmark of the last year was the accreditation accorded by ACBSP and then by EFMD to our PGDM program. Even more pleasing is the fact that ours is the first program in the country to be accredited by EFMD (EPAS). We at SDMIMD deem it as recognitions for the pursuit of excellence and high academic rigor practiced over the years.
 
In 2016-17 we were able to further the practices in the last four years of having several conferences both within and outside the campus, a large number of corporate talks, greater number of international exchange exposure and greater focus on social responsibility. At present, SDMIMD has seven international exchange arrangements and it will be our endeavour to take this number to double digits during the current academic year.
 
Further, we seek to build upon the strengths of quality research, corporate lectures, corporate consultancy and international conferences to fulfil our commitment to being a teaching and research centre of excellence.
 
With the patronage and support of all our well-wishers, we are confident of great progress. Let me acknowledge the efforts of the faculty and staff in making sure that 2016-17 created several milestones and overall satisfaction to all stakeholders.
 
With best wishes,

Dr. N. R. Parasuraman
