Why PML SD Business School Founded

One fine evening in 2016, three doyens of education in India were looking back with pride at the 40+ years legacy of SD College society, GGDSD. Six finest institutions in commerce and other streams had been imparting value based education to countless students. These students were routinely taking admission in IIMs, XLRI, FMS, and other top-notch colleges of India and abroad.

An insight occurred that there was a need for a different B-School. Apart from few top-ranked colleges, others were just cluttering the MBA landscape. Industry was pained – 75% of MBAs and PGDMs were not industry ready. Most of them simply jumped companies, without any stability value paradigm. The teaching they received was not relevant for today’s corporate needs. Most B-schools were limited to fancy glass fascia infrastructure with low standards of pedagogy and weak industry interface.

The dream to build PML SD Business School was ignited. Pandit Mohan Lal Sharma had been a steady source of inspiration for all of them – he being an accomplished academician, administrator and policy maker for benefits towards Indian society. It was decided to continually ingrain his deep convictions and sense of character for PML SD Business School students.

Welcome for a refreshing management skills learning journey of two years.
