HOD’s Desk



It gives me immense pleasure to lead the PG department of Development Management. Our department is unique, like a prism reflecting the manifold shades of learning and co-curricular activities related to Social and Development Concerns.The Department has recorded consistent improvement in its academic, research and placement performance. It offers a range of innovatively designed programs whose curricula are constantly updated to meet and face the changing requirement of the Development field. The greatest asset of the department is its highly motivated and learned faculty.  Our students have been well accepted in their job profiles and have consistently exceeded expectations of the Society and the corporate world.It is also expected that our students will continue to pass-on the skills which they have developed during their stay at this department to whole of the world for a better society.
