PGDM-HRM Course Structure

The PGDM-HR is divided into six trimesters spread over two years of the Program. During the first three terms of the first year, all students study courses related to Human Resource Management with few elementary courses related to other disciplines like Marketing, Operation Management, Information System Management and Finance. It also covers courses related use of management techniques in business, business communication, basics of people management processes, use of HR tools and measurement , communication for persuasion and negotiation etc.

Students are required to do a project on issues of societal relevance by the end of first year. Students would take up an internship at the end of third trimester and would appear for the Strategic Human Resource Management Certified Professionals (SHRM-CP) certification in the beginning of second year. In the second year, students can opt for courses on Marketing, Operation Management, Information System Management, Strategy and Finance, with a focus on how these impact HR in a company and how HR can add value to these areas to become a true business partner. Few advanced courses on Human Resource Management would also be offered in second year.
