With an ever-changing, increasingly connected and competitive world, business managers need to constantly update their knowledge and professional capabilities in all areas affecting their business and career, sometimes even in issues such as work-life balance! In doing so, managers and business leaders ideally need to reach out to experts outside their own organizations. 
SDMIMD with its 23 years of providing quality management education offers the ideal solution by organizing Management Development Programs (MDPs) spanning different streams of management such as General Management, Human Resources, Organizational Behavior, Marketing, Finance, Operations Management, Information Systems, Strategic Management and Industrial Relations. These MDPs are designed keeping in view the ever changing demands on business/professional executives. Each of these MDPs is aimed at providing the participants with new thinking, new tools, new techniques, new knowledge and skills, besides inculcating an innovative and creative approach to problem solving. Read More >
