Director's Message

The School of Petroleum Management (SPM) admits every year a select group of students for undergoing training in areas such as Energy & Infrastructure Management and General Management with specialisation in Marketing, Finance, Human Resources Management and Operations Management. While Energy & Infrastructure stream of students mainly cater to the most vital energy sector, other highly significant sectors such as IT and Banking & Finance also find them most appropriate for employment for their Energy & Infrastructure verticals. The General Management students are trained mainly for employment across the sector in all functional areas of Management.

At SPM, the exposure of students to the world of Management through rigorous classroom training by our highly qualified faculty is supplemented with regular sessions from experts from business and industry. As a matter of fact SPM firmly believes in regular sessions by management practitioners as an essential part of good management education and training. In addition, recurring management conclaves, seminars, conferences and occasional special lectures enrich the knowledge base of students at the School. Students at SPM have opportunities to listen and learn from experts from abroad who are invited to the University from time to time. Fulltime residential requirements and two years of engaging co-curricular and extra-curricular activities also add value to the personality development of our students.

Teaching pedagogy at SPM emphasizes, in addition to lectures, case studies, student presentations, student-research, seminars and other modern methods of education and training in management. Long term industry immersion is attempted through summer internship of 8 weeks’ duration in highly reputed organisations. We are also in the initial process of planning for an optional short duration of stay for students in one of the reputed universities abroad as part of their education programme at SPM. In short, SPM attempts to develop highly trained managers to meet the present as well as the future requirements of the management profession in business and industry.
