SDM Institute for Management Development (SDMIMD)
Shri Dharmasthala Manjunatheshwara Institute for Management Development (SDMIMD), a premier B School located in Mysuru, was established in 1993 to provide quality management education based on a firm foundation of Indian values and ethics.
SDMIMD’s flagship offering is a two-year, full-time, residential Post Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM) program approved by AICTE and accredited by the NBA. The program has also been recognized as equivalent to MBA by the Association of Indian Universities.
The other programs run by the Institute are:
1. One-year AICTE approved PG Certificate in Management (PGCM)
2. Ph.D. in Management (University of Mysore)
SDMIMD’s PGDM Program is accredited by ACBSP (Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs), USA; and EFMD (European Foundation for Management Development), thus becoming the first Institute in India to get the dual accreditation of ACBSP and EFMD – EPAS. SDMIMD continues to be the only school that has EPAS (now this is called EFMD accredited). The Institute is also now a Member of AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business), bringing it on a contact base with leading B Schools of the world.
SDMIMD is only the second school in the country to be assessed for comprehensive impact assessment and awarded BSIS (Business School Impact System) certification by EFMD. To strengthen the PGDM program and provide students & faculty with international exposure, the Institute has partnered with over fifteen universities across the globe.
The picturesque campus located at the foot of Chamundi Hills is an amalgamation of modern infrastructure and classic architecture. The campus has won several architectural and landscape awards and provides an atmosphere conducive to the germination of managerial intellect.
The students of SDMIMD are much sought after by the industry for their intellectual capability and values & ethos. The 100% placement validates this that the Institute has been achieving consistently.
