The Institute has taken an excellent step in developing a pipeline of women leaders for future. According to the research conducted by the Institute, most of the women drop out in the mid of the career before attaining higher positions. The MPW course is targeted to meet the needs of women who want to continue their career. The course will make the women take up the challenges in the current competitive scenario.
The programme was launched on September 1, 2016, by Mr. Deepak Parekh, Chairperson of the SPJIMR Governing Council. He is also the Chairperson of HDFC.
