Prof. M Chandrasekhar
Director, IIM Visakhapatnam

It is a matter of pride and privilege for IIM Visakhapatnam to have launched a customized and first-of-its-kind Post-Graduate Program in Digital Governance and Management in 2019. The Program is launched under the aegis of the National e-Governance Division (NeGD), Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology (MeitY), Govt. of India (GoI). We are now entering the second year of the Program and are ready to welcome the next batch of participants.

In today's times, government, business and society function in a continuum. Digitalization integrates all the stakeholders such as citizens & customers; principals & associates; suppliers & service-providers in a single-value chain. Such connectedness promotes economy of resource-use, efficiency of outputs and effectiveness of outcomes.

It is with this ethos that Digital India, the flagship program of MeitY, has been catalysing the delivery of improved products and services in vital areas such as Health & Nutrition; Education & Skill Development; Agriculture & Water Resources; Financial Inclusion; Smart Cities & Infrastructure; and Smart Mobility & Transportation. Innovative applications using digital technologies are moving to the centre-stage in these sectors.

For the benefits of digitalization to expand in scale and scope, it is important to build internal capacities in the government and industry, so that the functionaries at strategic as well as operational levels are equipped with necessary knowledge and skills, for ensuring success of programs and projects from conceptualization to commissioning. The Program on offer addresses this felt need.

As an institution of national importance, IIM Visakhapatnam would position a high-quality MBA program, calibrated to the current context with customized content and conducive to impactful learning outcomes.

Graduates from the Program would be able to make a constructive contribution towards the digitalization efforts in their work domains gaining greater traction, in pervasiveness and profundity. 


Prof. Neena Pandey
Program Chair (PGPDGM), IIM Visakhapatnam

With the successful launch of Post Graduate Program in Digital Governance and Management (PGP-DGM) in 2019, IIMV is excited to move ahead in its journey to welcome the second batch of the Program leading to a degree of Master of Business Administration (MBA), under the aegis of the National e-Governance Division, Ministry of Electronics and IT, Government of India.

With the advent of digital technologies, businesses and government alike have placed immense faith in the value these technologies bring towards achieving their goal. While organizations are looking to ‘transform’ them using these technologies, the Government of India, with the launch of Digital India, is actively pushing their usage to attain efficient and effective delivery of products and services. Robust implementation of these technologies demands a thorough understanding of the nuances of digital governance by its functionaries. We, at IIMV, envisage the PGP-DGM program to address this aspect of capacity building.

The carefully curated courses of the Program, along with the international exposure, ensure that the professionals are more than adequately equipped and empowered with knowledge and skill sets to help achieve the dream of New India based on digitalization. The Program envisions significant value that this capacity building program will add to the businesses, government, and society at large through efficient handling of mission-mode e-Governance initiatives.
Students for the Program will be selected through a rigorous admission process.

The Program would be representative of the intellectual rigor of IIMV. The design of the Program is borne out of a vigorous debate among the domain experts from the government, public, and private sector organizations. As a result, the Program is unique and ‘first-in-class’ in India.
As the Chairperson of the Program, I am truly convinced that graduates of the PGP-DGM will add tremendous value to their organizations and further contribute to the development of the nation.
