Other programmes

SPJIMR has entered into collaboration with many corporate entities, academic organisations and non-profits to offer specialised programmes, seminars, workshops and symposiums. The process of course design and deployment is done in collaboration with the industry. For example, in 2003, it rolled out a course on service management by incorporating feedback and guest faculty support from GE, while in 2007, it partnered with Patni Computer Systems to create specialised courses in the area of supply chain management.

In 2004, SPJIMR partnered with Virginia Tech on a two-year programme titled PGDSM- MIT, which led to a master’s degree in Information Technology from Virginia Tech and Post Graduate Diploma in Systems Management from SPJIMR. The course was later discontinued, since AICTE did not approve this campus-sharing model . The same year, it partnered with Motilal Oswal Securities to conduct a course on equity research. Also in 2004, the institute launched a six-month diploma programme, Women and Political Governance, aimed at educating women who plan to join politics. The course was jointly created by the Times Foundation, Women’s Movement for Peace and Prosperity (WMPP) and SPJIMR.

In 2007, SPJIMR signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Standard Chartered bank to introduce a special training programme on corporate banking for graduates through Bhavan’s Centre for Inter Disciplinary Studies (BCIDS).

In 2010, the York University’s Schulich School of Business launched a new masters of business administration (MBA) program at SPJIMR.
