TAPMI kicks off PGDM programmes with 482 students

The batch has an average CAT score of 90 percentile; women students constitute 38 per cent

A total of 482 students joined the latest batch of PGDM (post-graduate diploma in management) programmes of TA Pai Management Institute (TAPMI) at the Manipal campus.

Students from 26 States have joined with an average CAT score of 90 percentile. Women students constitute 38 per cent of the current batch.

The PGDM batches include the 37th batch of PGDM, sixth batch of PGDM (Banking and Financial Services), second batch of PGDM (Human Resources), and the first batch of PGDM (Marketing and Sales Management).

Madhu Veeraraghavan, Director, TAPMI, said that the induction exemplifies TAPMI’s approach, as some of the institution’s most notable alumni connect with the students to orient them to the latest and emerging trends in industry. This is the first step towards creating future-ready business leaders, he said.

TAPMI alumni Rima S Naware, Director (HR) of Inventivo India, and Priyanka Neogi, Vice-President (Digital Transformation Projects) of Kotak Mahindra Bank, shared their corporate experiences on the occasion.

The new batch will attend a week-long induction, which includes programmes such as meditation by the Art of Living, professional courtesies and socialising, etiquette, and yoga.
