Message from Chairperson


B Srirangacharyulu
Chairperson - PGP

Welcome to the fourth batch of the two-year Post Graduate Programme in Management at the Indian Institute of Management Visakhapatnam.

Designated as a mentor school for IIM Visakhapatnam by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, IIM Bangalore has been providing guidance to IIMV for the past three years by sharing its best practices and resources. We offer a holistic and transformative learning experience which will enable you to become a good person, make informed choices about your careers, and deal with various challenges that you will encounter in your journey towards self-development and professional excellence.

As someone just about to enter the portals of IIMV, I am sure you have many questions about the Institute and academics. The purpose of this Handbook is to answer those questions. You are required to thoroughly go through this Handbook and be familiar with our processes and systems. Should you need clarifications, do not hesitate to let me or the PGP Office know.

At IIMV, we are three years old. We have excellent infrastructure; and we are backed by IIMB’s excellence in management education. We now attract the brightest students. While contemporary curriculum keeps the programme contextually relevant, innovative pedagogies are adopted to stimulate your learning. In addition to the eleven faculty members of IIMV, there are other faculty who come from either IIMB or are invited selectively from outside IIMB. They are more than willing to constructively challenge and mentor the students on various issues including academics and personality. The campus has the most conducive infrastructure like library, students’ lounge and meeting rooms for group interaction, Wi-Fi, and state-of-the-art classrooms. I am sure you will make the best use of this opportunity to develop your own personality and professional career.

Life at IIMV is interesting and challenging. There are student clubs which channelize your energies into self-development, extra-curricular learning, and social service.

You are encouraged to provide feedback on how the quality of the programme can be continuously improved. Open houses are held at periodic intervals where students, faculty and academic administration discuss matters of mutual interest.

I wish you well as you commence your journey. A journey towards your future leadership roles that are socially relevant and are based on strong principles.
