Building administrative capabilities

The Assessment and Development of Managerial and Administrative Potential (ADMAP) is a unique immersive experience pioneered by SPJIMR. It enables participants to develop their administrative capabilities and management skills experientially. A mandatory 2.5-credit course, it instils in the participants core principles of self-learning and self-management through the prism of doing, observing, reflecting and recording.

ADMAP groups the participants into different committees. Each committee actively manages a range of the institute’s core administrative activities, including admissions, placements, industry engagements, cultural fests and events. Each committee is assigned a faculty-in-charge to guide the participants and help them derive management lessons from their experiences.

Participants get hands-on training and in-depth insights into various aspects of management. This experiential approach to management education helps participants evolve into well-rounded leaders, entrepreneurs, and managers of tomorrow who can get things done efficaciously in a rapidly changing and disruptive business environment.
