Socially Relevant Project

All the first year students are required to undertake a project titled Socially Relevant Project (SRP) in the third term. This course is a compulsory TWO CREDIT requirement for completion of PGDM program.
The Objectives of SRP are to:

  1. Sensitize students to Social Issues
  2. Instil and develop ethics, social responsibility and philanthropy – values which the SDM Trust is reputed for
  3. Expose students to non- corporate organizations, government departments, NGOs to help them understand the application of management concepts and principles to social issues
  4. To serve like a curtain raiser to students who might consider Social Entrepreneurship as a career option

Summer Internship Project

The SIP is a 3 credit course and is designed to provide the PGDM student with an opportunity to work and gain first-hand exposure to the environment, work culture and processes that prevail in real-life organizations. Based on the learning of the first three terms of the program, the student is equipped with the conceptual skills, but lacks the experience of putting this learning into practice. SIP provides the intern an opportunity of learning and decision-making.

SDMIMD requires that every student undergoes such an experiential learning process at the end of the first year of the PGDM program. The SIP duration is 6 to 8 weeks during the months of April and May. The Placement Cell will help the students in finding suitable summer projects and will also provide necessary guidance in completing their assignment. Students may be allowed to source a SIP on their own provided the project details meet the requirement of the Institute. In such a case, the concerned organization should provide a written communication to the Institute before a specified date confirming the project.
