It gives me immense pleasure to welcome you all to MDI Murshidabad (MDIM). With an intention to impart quality management education, nurture talent, and groom them to become visionary leaders and game changers, the MDI Society had established its second campus at Murshidabad in West Bengal in 2014. After the laying of the foundation stone in October 2010, the building and infrastructure were launched by the then President of India, Shri Pranab Mukherjee in August 2014, with the simultaneous commencement of its flagship academic program, the Post Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM), which is recognized by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), New Delhi.
Since inception, MDI Murshidabad has been committed to achieving academic excellence and turning out quality managers and global leaders. Spread over 10 acres, the campus takes pride not only in terms of its state-of-the-art infrastructure and expert faculty, but also in terms of covering several milestones in cognate domains, including organizing MDPs, industrial visits, business symposia, corporate events, etc. in which our students and faculty members have played pivotal roles.
MDI Murshidabad has hosted several events organized by student driven clubs and committees. Notable among these are Vicarana and Budget Xpress, both annual events. Others are, Brandify 2.0, FinQuest, SigMa’16, TRiVIa’16, tHRust 1.0 and HrUdbhav, which are organized by the subject specific Clubs. Gender Sensitization Programs, and others, along with Quizzes, Case studies and other management competitions, are among the variety of regular events in the campus. Our students have also shown their talent by participating and winning accolades in competitions held at other renowned B-schools in the country.
It has always been the endeavor of the Institute to strengthen the core faculty. Presently, we have a good mix of young, dynamic and experienced faculty members, who double up as institution builders and student mentors. While faculty from MDI Gurgaon (MDIG) regularly take classes at Murshidabad, our students also get the opportunity to interact with specialized faculty from other top institutions in the region like, IIM Calcutta, ISI Calcutta, Jadavpur University, Calcutta University, IIFT, etc. Distinguished personalities across India in the field of academics, industry, business, government, culture and international relations, pay frequent visits to MDIM to address and interact with the students.
On academic progression, our campus is now actively mentored by MDI Gurgaon. Besides the process of admissions being jointly conducted, a full term of 3 months is spent by students of Murshidabad at the Gurgaon campus. Classes between two campuses are carried out through Video conferencing facility.
In the domain of Placements for its students, the Murshidabad campus in spite of its recent beginnings, is particular that prominent organizations across India (e.g. IDBI, RBI, IFCI, Usha Martin, Exide, Standard Chartered, Pepsico, KPMG, Tata Steel, Adani Group, Linde, among others), offer both Summer Internship and Final employment to them, thereby proving their ready industry worthiness. It is extremely gratifying to note that our first two batches have been placed in organizations like ICICI, Reliance Retail, SBI Life, Tata Teleservices, Euromonitor International, IPSOS, Uflex, Niaggro, Eperium, Businessworld, TIL, Home Credit etc. to name a few.
I feel proud to share with you that on the 24th August 2016 during the 1st Convocation, all the students of our 1st PGDM batch were conferred their Diploma in Management by the Hon’ble President of India, Shri Pranab Mukherjee. We have celebrated the 2nd Convocation on 3rd September 2017 as well, where all the students of our 2nd PGDM batch were conferred their Diplomas and Medals by the Chief Executive of the recently established Bandhan Bank, Mr. Chandra Shekhar Ghosh.
