Dear Young Management Aspirant,
Welcome to Thiagarajar School of Management, Madurai-TSM-one of India’s oldest institutions for aspiring young managers. Established way back in 1962 by the well-known philanthropist-industrialist the Late Shri Karumuttu Thiagarajar Chettiar and carefully nurtured by the Late Shri Manikam Ramaswami, TSM carries with it a rich legacy rooted in quality, relevance, cost-effectiveness and integrity.
TSM currently offers high quality two-year full-time management programmes in two streams-the MBA programme affiliated to the Madurai Kamaraj University and the MBA equivalent Post-Graduate Diploma Programme (PGDM) approved by the All India Council of Technical Education, the Government of India apex body overseeing technical education in India. The PGDM programme has certain additional features vis-à-vis its MBA, including a slightly longer duration and certain additional academic courses in view of the inherent programme flexibility.
The TSM programmes are fully residential. Nestled in a “green” campus in the temple city of Madurai in Tamil Nadu, TSM is the home of nearly 500 students across the two programmes. TSM management programmes offer a rich blend of rigorous, quality academic inputs by highly qualified academics and cutting edge management practices and applications by experienced professionals from the Industry. And more importantly TSM seeks to go beyond the academics to groom the young aspirants who enter our portals into confident and socially-sensitive, role-ready professionals through a variety of transformational courses in communications, leadership, social awareness, ethics and inclusive development.
