At SPJIMR- PGPM, Student committees are formed to encourage the concept of "Learning by Doing". In these committees, the participants may freely experiment with ideas and learn to work effectively to develop:
- 'Team skills' and 'collaboration' without compromising on individual interests.
- Learn human relations, 'interpersonal skills' and 'self management' in order to ‘get things done’ in an organization.
- Learn the biggest tool for success - 'influencing without power'. The participants will work with their peer group over whom they have no power or authority and 'get work done'.
