Programme for Management Development (PMD) focuses on equipping forward looking managers with leadership skills that are critical for personal growth and for growing others in the organization.

Knowing that middle level managers are the link between the formulation of strategy and its execution, the program is designed to challenge the professionals to open their minds and find new, creative solutions to business problems
