With a heavy emphasis on bridging the gap between industry and academia, St. Kabir Institute of Professional Studies has been approaching Management education in India, differently. The B School, which carries the legacy of over three decades, has been raising the bar for PGDM by involving industry experts in every phase of its course delivery. From designing the curriculum to rigorous industry interfaces with PGDM students, St. Kabir Institute of Professional Studies’ AICTE approved two years full-time management program with dual specialization is drawing a lot of attention in Gujarat- from academicians and industrialists alike.
SKIPS, Ahmedabad has remained committed to offering high end, high quality, and value-driven management education to students- making it gradually evolve as one of the top PGDM schools in Gujarat.

They aid students participating in a wide range of cultural and sporting activities besides ones like the Book and Movie clubs. Moreover, they are also the setting for events of the Industry Interaction Forum, which aims to offer students the required corporate exposure.
One of the objectives of the B Schools is to create industry ready professionals at the end of the program. That’s why SKIPS’s courses in Marketing / Digital Marketing, Finance, Human Resources, Operations, International Business and Information Technology are designed with industry inputs. The faculty team, many of whom have vast industry experience, deliver the courses using new age teaching pedagogy like case studies, group discussions, simulated exercises, workshops, role plays etc, to build a strong foundation for future management professionals.

Through initiatives like Employability Enhancement Program and Profile Enhancement Support, they are equipped to face the challenges of the industry. Internships with top organizations ensure that they have firsthand corporate experience.
