If you’ve been on a career break for 2 years or more, you’ll agree that the BEST way to stay in the game is to stay abreast of industry trends. With Indian businesses looking at women as a crucial, untapped resource, you are undoubtedly in the right place at the right time to upskill and return to the corporate world!

So, if you are looking for a program structured to bring you up-to-speed after a career break, at an institution with outstanding credentials across industries, The Postgraduate Management Programme for Women (PGMPW) by SP Jain Institute of Management and Research (SPJIMR) is tailor-made for YOU.


SPJIMR - The Foundation

SP Jain Institute of Management and Research - an innovative and socially sensitive institution - has taken up the task of reintegrating women returning after a career break into the corporate leadership pipeline.

The PGMPW is a platform through which the institution seeks to help women relaunch their careers.


The Purpose of the PGMPW at SPJIMR

The Indian family paradox leads to women taking a career break from their jobs in the formal sector. Subsequently, extrinsic and intrinsic factors inhibit their return to corporate careers. The PGMPW program is a platform for women to relaunch their careers.

Dr. Ashita Aggarwal, Chairperson, PGMPW says, “The PGMPW is a powerful tool to overcome any difference to professional success that can arise out of time away from the professional world”.

What is the PGMPW?

The Postgraduate Management Programme for Women is an accelerated management programme for women returning to their professional paths after a break.

What’s in it for YOU?

Corporate Engagement – an important element in recharting your career path – is the most important takeaway from this program.

And here’s how it works:

  • Industry Mentorship Programme: Each participant is mentored by an industry professional for the duration of the course.
  • Leadership Lecture Series: Interaction with industry leaders
  • Business Impact Project in Design Thinking

The bonus: Placement assistance upon successful completion of the PGMPW.
