Message from Chairperson


Prof. Vinay Ramani 
Chairperson - PGP

Welcome to the fifth batch of the two year Post Graduate Programme in Management (PGP), leading to the degree of Master of Business Administration at the Indian Institute of Management, Visakhapatnam (IIMV). At the outset, let me congratulate you for taking the decision of joining IIMV. Given that we are a relatively young institute, I am sure that this decision may not have been an easy one to make. As an institute of national importance, we take immense pride in our academics and strive to offer you nothing less than the best quality of education. So let me assure you that your decision of joining IIMV is indeed well taken.

The academic activities at IIMV are steered by full time faculty members who have doctoral degrees from reputed institutes in India and abroad. The institute staff and academic associates support the faculty in the smooth running of the academic programme. We are also ably supported by visiting faculty members and practitioners from across the country.

The academic curriculum at IIMV is thoughtfully designed to include core courses in the first year across all the foundational and functional areas. These courses give students insights into the various areas and channel their interests in their second year when elective courses are offered. The details regarding the number of credits to be completed in the first and second year courses are clearly mentioned in this Handbook. You are required to go through the Handbook completely in order to familiarize yourself with our systems and processes. While academics is the centrepiece of the two year PGP, you are also urged to participate in various co-curricular activities organized by the different student clubs to gain a holistic learning experience.

AIIMV is currently housed in the vibrant campus of Andhra University. Our self-sufficient facility includes modern classrooms with excellent acoustics, Wi-Fi connectivity all across the academic building, and a well-stocked and functional library.

I wish you the best as you commence your two year academic journey at IIMV. I hope that these two years become one of the most fruitful learning experiences for you. If you have any questions regarding the programme, please do not hesitate to contact me or the PGP Office.

With Best Wishes,
