In order to create a pool of talent, Ministry of Power, in collaboration with USAID under the DRUM Project had developed a PGDM: Energy Management Programme in the power sector. The purpose of the programme is to select, train and develop the best talent available in our Power sector so that we can meet the challenges of developing and managing our power system in a manner that is second to none. The programme has 12 months of class room training which involve industry visits and another 3 months for project works which each individual will develop at his/her own work place. We also help in placements to the self-sponsored students through our very active placement cell.


In order to cope with the new realities and changing contour of the Energy sector in India, MDI 's PGP-Energy Management programme focuses on developing future leaders who

* Believe in leading change rather than managing change
* Integrate thoughts with action
* Create an impact and seek to make a difference wherever they go
* Are trained and developed as the best talent to meet the challenge of developing and managing the Energy sector in India
* Would be well-equipped with the salient features of functional areas of management
* Would share experiences on national and international best practices and innovations in community-based participative model
* Would be Facilitators for awareness, understanding and implementation of enactments relating to Power

Thus, the mission of the programme at MDI is to prepare global leaders who create, manage and effectively lead change in the energy sector. These leaders are expected to create winning institutions in the emerging corporate Olympiad. The Programme also sensitizes them on ethical issues.


Teaching is based on recent research materials and experience gathered from around the world. The pedagogy is highly interactive. It envisages substantial participation and action learning. Teaching methods include lectures, cases, seminars, group discussions, business games, role plays, simulations, exercises, structured and unstructured group work and field visits. The emphasis is on involving each participant to make learning participant-centric and help them relate the concepts, ideas and theories to their own experience. Consistent with recent advances in training technology, the programme integrates the use of latest IT and computing technologies with learning in different functional areas.


Substantial work is assigned to the participants in small groups. This provides an opportunity to examine a problem collectively and to learn from each other's experiences. The group learning activities can be broadly classified into two:

* Group assignments with presentations, and case analysis
* Group tasks-assignments that involve learning by doing


In order to have the first hand experience of the best practices in Energy sector in India, MDI organizes industry visits for the benefit of the participants.


Participants are evaluated on a continuous basis with quizzes, assignments, tests and examinations. There is a final examination at the end of each term. Course evaluation is in terms of letter grades. Participants are required to achieve a minimum cumulative grade point average in each term, as well as a minimum letter grade in each course. The overall performance in the programme would also include the evaluation of the project work / dissertation. The dissertation report has to be submitted at the end of the fifth term, otherwise the candidates will not be eligible to get the PGDM: Energy Management.


On successful completion of the programme requirements, a student is awarded a Post-Graduate Diploma in Management, PGDM (Energy Management), which has the approval of the All India Council for Technical Education, Government of India.
