Restart: Initiative for women with a career break

Women often take a break from their careers due to family responsibilities, and many of them aspire to resume their professional journeys. These individuals are talented managers who can add significant value to organisations. At SPJIMR, we are committed to providing them with the same opportunities as any other candidate towards building a managerial career. With this objective, we have launched the Restart initiative for women with a career break. This initiative reflects SPJIMR’s commitment to diversity and inclusion.

For the admitted participants with a career break, the Restart initiative provides an immersive bridging module. The module is conducted on campus and is tailored to meet the unique requirements of returning women. After completing the bridging module, the participants join the PGPM cohort, where they have the opportunity to study with a peer group of experienced professionals from diverse functional backgrounds and build a strong professional network.
