Post Graduate Programme in Sustainable Management stresses upon the philosophy that businesses are embedded in society and cannot be separated from it, and therefore aims to develop management professionals with a holistic perspective on economic, social and environmental issues. In addition to offering general management courses, PGPSM’s curriculum stands out in management education by means of offering specialized courses on systems thinking, social entrepreneurship, externalities, lifecycle management, stakeholder management, and public policy.

Objectives of the Programme

Postgraduate Programme in Sustainable Management (PGPSM) has been designed to enable the students to:

  • Understand societal development from multiple perspectives
  • Acquire knowledge and skills in functional areas of business management
  • Actively participate in the growing world-wide debate on the purposes and responsibilities of business
  • Become informed, self-aware and socially and environmentally responsible individuals, contributing to social change
  • Challenge the status quo and suggest new and innovative opportunities for businesses to grow without compromising social and environmental responsibilities.

Why Sustainable Management

Businesses today are increasingly being driven by sustainability concerns. Results of surveys conducted by many leading consulting and media houses such as Forbes and Fortune indicate that no business can survive in the future without incorporating sustainability principles and practices in its operations. However, this is easier said than done. Herein lies the role of Sustainable Management.

While in the past, ‘sustainability’ as a term was often associated and limited to environmental and social concerns, a hard realization has set-in in the recent years that businesses cannot separate themselves from society and environment. An unstable social and environmental ecology will inadvertently hurt the profit bottom line of business by making the conduct of business expenses. Hence, the only way to deal with the threat of negative environmental and sociological impact of business is to convert them into opportunities for improvements and excellence.

The PGPSM enables future managers to understand the ever-evolving and interactive nature of these sustainability challenges and come up with integrated, holistic solutions.
