About us
Shri Dharmasthala Manjunatheshwara Institute for Management Development (SDMIMD), a premier Bschool located in Mysore, was established in 1993 with the objective of providing quality management education based on a firm foundation of Indian values and ethics.
SDMIMD is promoted by Shri Dharmasthala Manjunatheshwara Educational Trust, a much admired non-profit educational trust that runs over 40 recognized educational institutions in Karnataka, including Engineering, Medical, Dental, Ayurveda and Naturopathy colleges. Under the able leadership of our Chairman, Dr.D.Veerendra Heggade, the trust has played an active role in empowering people and bettering the lives of communities in Southern Karnataka. 
SDMIMD's flagship offering is a two year, full time, residential Post Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM) program which is approved by AICTE and accredited by NBA. The program has also been recognized as equivalent to MBA by Association of Indian Universities.
SDMIMD’s PGDM Program is accredited by ACBSP (Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs), USA. and by EFMD (European Foundation for Management Development), thus becoming the first institute in India to get the dual accreditation of ACBSP and EFMD - EPAS. These accreditations have propelled SDMIMD to be among the top global Business Schools and have enabled the students to learn in an environment that is process and outcome enabled and globally oriented.
The Institute has been rated A**(A Double Star) by Credit Rating Information Services of India Limited (CRISIL) and Brickwork Ratings at the National level. The rating brings the Institute on par with many leading B-Schools in the country.
With the intention of strengthening the PGDM program and providing students and faculty with international exposure, the Institute has tie-ups with several foreign universities for academic collaboration.
SDMIMD has entered into an agreement with TCS ION for launch of online courses through the latter’s platform. In the initial year, these courses will be primarily intended for corporate executives and university students wishing to learn management subjects.
SDMIMD is located in a picturesque campus at the foot of Chamundi Hills in the heritage city of Mysuru in Karnataka,140 kilometers from Bangalore. The campus is an amalgamation of modern infrastructure with classic architecture where the indoors and outdoors blend seamlessly. Green courtyards, tree lined avenues and the chirping of birds welcome every visitor to the verdant environs. The campus has won several architectural and landscape awards, and provides an atmosphere conducive for the germination of managerial intellect.
The campus is enabled with contemporary learning and IT infrastructure. As a fully residentail B-School, the campus provides a tranquil and invigorating environment for living - be it the fully furnished single occupancy hostel room, student managed mess, well equipped gym and wellness centre etc.
