SDMIMD collaboration with TCS on Academic Enhancement

SDMIMD has entered into a 5-year agreement with TCS iON for supplementary study for the entire PGDM students.  The partnership envisages corporate professional inputs for 8 select courses followed by an internship in an area of relevance to management.  SDMIMD students will also be able to undergo TCS’s reputed National Qualifier Test (NQT).  Students will get a joint certificate issued by SDMIMD and TCS iON certifying the supplementary study undergone
The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the Educational Partnership was exchanged by Dr. N.R. Parasuraman, Director, SDMIMD and Sri. Ravindra Kembhavi, Head Sales and Chief Education Evangelist, TCSiON, in the presence of Dr. D. Veerendra Heggade, Chairman, SDMIMD, on Friday, December 17, 2021.  
In his address, Dr. D. Veerendra Heggade expressed the view that the timing of this arrangement with TCS is very appropriate. In its growth phase, SDMIMD can make use of the expertise and strengths of TCS and work towards development of overall managerial awareness and exposure to our students. Another laudable feature of the initiative is that this facility is open to all our students starting from this year. This means that regardless of their intended specializations, they will stand to gain the practical touch from TCS. Coupled with their existing use of our Dharmasthala ethos and practices, the results are bound to be of great value to the corporate and business community.   Dr Heggade stressed that in this era when the content of higher education curriculum and teaching methods are matters of wide debate, practical exposures and value-added support from corporate bodies will always be welcome. TCS is a world-renowned organization with a high quality of professional practices. Students must seize this great opportunity being given to them and work hard to make themselves rounded individuals.
In his address, Mr. Ravindra Kembhavi, Head Sales and Chief Education Evangelist, TCSiON stated that this program focuses on bringing industry experts which is going to add value. He urged students to ask more questions and get involved as more questions give more energy. The learning helps students to understand the expectations of the corporate world.
