PGDM-BE Programme | Learning Model & Program Structure

EDI’s PGDM-BE offers an exceptional learning model to make it easier for students to understand the crux of entrepreneurship.

The programme is designed to develop a strong base for entrepreneurial and management skills. These critical tools will help the participants face any challenge in their career.

EDI places a strong emphasis on entrepreneurship as a means to creating value for organizations and the development of leadership competencies. The methodology adopted at EDI varies according to various subject’s objectives and the skills, attitudes and behavioural patterns to be fostered. Though classroom theory is important for acquiring management knowledge but there is no substitute for practice in order to ingrain the entrepreneurial decision making skills. To this end, the pedagogy includes case study discussions, simulation games, teamwork, tutorials and role-play exercises, among other activities. The students are given opportunities to interact, challenge points of view and discuss business situations on an academic platform. One of our key strengths is the degree of personalized mentor provided to each participant.

The course is offered through six trimesters over the two years period. The course offers induction module, core courses, electives, audited courses, seminar courses, independent study and projects apart from summer internship at the end of Ist year.
