A ten-day induction programme was conducted for PGDM batch 2017-19 from 12th to 24th June 2017. The event commenced with inducting the students in the management culture. In this program apart from highlighting the importance of ‘Business Management’ in the world economy the students were also made aware about the institute rules, regulations and code of conduct. Further, the students were also guided about the way they are expected to conduct themselves, study and appear in the examination etc. The program aimed at giving a proper orientation to the newly joined students about the course, management discipline and the future prospects in addition to the methodology of learning to lead a successful life.

The induction program focused on learning the intricacies of various functional areas in management through games. On the 3rd day of the event “Management Maaza” was organized which was full of various management games, videos and activities. This helped the students to gel with each other.
