POSTGRADUATE MANAGEMENT PROGRAMME FOR WOMEN (PGMPW) - Accelerated management programme for women returning to professional career

SPJIMR, an innovative and socially sensitive institution, has taken up the task of reintegrating women returning after a career break into corporate leadership pipeline.
