Director’s Message

It gives me great pleasure to greet you all at the start of the new academic year.

SDMIMD plans to consolidate the gains of accreditation in the following ways:

  • The value-based strategic thrust as envisaged in the Vision and Mission statements of the Institute, are sought to be built upon.
  • The outcome management and rubrics in the flagship program are sought to be revised and refined to keep in line with changing needs.
  • While the extent and quality of research has already come in for appreciation, we are taking steps to have more corporate-based research to take care of decision-making capabilities.
  • The thrust on improved corporatisation will continue, with more programs and online offerings.
  • We look forward to your continued support to the Institute and its activities.

With best wishes,

Dr. N. R. Parasuraman
