ggd sd society chandigarh

With a legacy of four and a half decades of phenomenal success in the field of education, the GGDSD College Society has now started a unique Business School.

As the world is moving towards becoming a ‘global village’, the most emerging challenges will require a global approach. Competent leaders are required to manage and address global issues. Keeping in view the changing educational scenario and driven by the core values of commitment, trustworthiness, innovation and concern for society and environment, GGDSD Society has launched an independent institute offering relevant management education.

Located in the heart of Chandigarh, an educational hub, our institution will shape the future by working in close proximity with industries, institutions and communities.

Avaluable team comprising of highly acclaimed academicians, experienced technocrats from the corporate world, eminent entrepreneurs and former members of Judiciary, Legislature and Bureaucracy have joined hands to lead the project. All for the labour of love!

The Institution envisioned by the Society is a centre of excellence for Management Education andis entirely different from the run-of- the-mill management institutes.
