SP Jain Institute of Management and Research (SPJIMR), one of India’s premier business schools, has introduced a post graduate management programme exclusively for women who are looking to get back to work after a break.

Women who take a break from their jobs, for whatever reasons, often find it difficult to come back into the corporate leadership pipeline. 

The primary reason for this is the lack of proper upskilling options available to women that help them bridge the knowledge gap that could appear in the years away from work.

With more companies now looking at women leadership as a crucial part of diverse teams within the organisation, it’s important to have management programmes that help bring women up to speed and join the corporate workforce.

This is why the Post Graduate Management Programme for Women at SPJIMR is the right choice for women looking to get back to work.

As a platform for women to relaunch their careers, the SPJIMR programme works with the backing of a globally-recognised institution and partnerships with various corporate organisations.

Details of the Post Graduate Management Programme for Women:

  • 11-month full time programme with residential option
  • Foundation module on Economics, Statistics and Accounting
  • Module 1 — General management across all domains
  • Module 2 — Specialisation in Information Management, Marketing, Finance, Human Resource Management, and Operations and Supply Chain
  • Module 3 — Integration across various functional areas
  • Corporate internships
  • Emphasis on leadership skills through Personal Growth Lab, Leadership Lab, Science of Spirituality and Individual coaching with ICF certified coaches
