Post-Graduate Diploma in Management (Law)
India’s first-ever PGDM program exclusively focusing on
‘legal & regulatory’ expertise in infrastructure management
PGDM (Law) programme is an AICTE-approved two-year full-time specialized and unique programme for fresh graduates / practitioners who are passionate about pursuing a career in ‘Legal & regulatory’ expertise in infrastructure management.
The program will be offered as interdisciplinary blend of business functions, infrastructure models and legal and regulatory aspects. We will, besides providing managerial skills in core subjects, equip the students with legal expertise required for management of different businesses.
Law and Business are more interconnected than ever. With fast-paced growth of infrastructure sector and given the fact that the sector operates in a regulated environment, complexities and their magnitude have become multifold. Many a times, it is increasingly difficult for corporate managers to take judicious decisions in business under circumstances often fraught with complex legal environment. On the other hand, law practitioners advising the corporate managers find it challenging to align their counsel with the business needs and constraints. This leads us to believe that the industry captains need a business manager’s perspective for growth as well as a lawyer’s eye for detail.
The course trains students in legal and regulatory aspects of infrastructure business. Areas like PPP framework, bidding and tendering for infrastructure projects, long-term supply and service agreements, dispute resolution mechanism, international and comparative laws etc. Business law is a course relevant to all management professionals as they need to be well-versed with the basics of Business Law. The course covers both theoretical and practical parts of legal practice in the business sector. It is aimed at imparting skills in protecting business and commercial transactions legally. This course imparting dual expertise in law as well as management enhances ability of individual’s quotient to become a successful corporate managers phenomenally.
As the infrastructure sector is growing at fast pace, there are major complexities in preparing PPP agreements, long-term contracts, long-term supply & service agreements, preparing tender documents, handling contract management as well as arbitration and legal proceedings and understanding of international law, IPR laws, regulatory affairs, etc.
PGDM (Law) aims to equip the students, whether they aspire for leadership in business and know the value of legal expertise, or whether they are primarily interested in career in law but seek a solid understanding of infrastructure business models and management functions; from both domestic and global perspectives.
Distinguished faculty from academia and law practitioners from industry will steer the program through lectures, presentations, and contemporary simulation based interactive case studies to facilitate application oriented practical implementation of theories and concepts.
Students will be engaged in discussions based on pre-circulated published papers, case studies, case laws and small case-lets with complex problems drawn from critical issues faced by industries. Students will also be exposed to management films and lectures from renowned professors and world class consultants / practitioners. Some of the classes will be conducted in workshop mode for bringing in application orientation.
Students will also be benefitted by working on assigned projects and collective / shared learning from writing papers and short presentations on assigned projects covering the course content. Summer Internship Program and Apprenticeship Program are also integral part of the learning process.
The Legal and Regulatory aspects involving business operations in infrastructure sectors needs focus. The emphasis is to apply the art of management as infrastructure demands rational allocation of substantial resources to achieve public good through value creating initiatives.
The approach is 3 tiered:
- Erect the 3 pillars of Economics & Finance, People & Communication and Operations & Strategy
- Understand the commonalities and peculiarities of infrastructure sectors through its business operations
- Build the legal and regulatory moat around the sectors
Teaching Law in this manner provides the managerial approach to address complex regulatory issues in infrastructure sectors.
Under Economics & Finance, the learning begins with the concepts in micro and macroeconomics. The focus then shifts to certain common aspects of infrastructure policies (IPR, ID, PPP). The student is then introduced to peculiarities of a sector, say Real estate (the business, the practices, the special themes like that of Urban Infra). The financial concepts, as part of the larger economic understanding, is covered through the courses on accounting and finance. This equips the student to understand financial statements and the allocation of resources in uncertain environment.
Under People & Communication, the learning is focused on competencies, aptitudes, organizational complexities, personality issues and managing biases and conflicts. Communication learnings are necessary prerequisite to face clients, courtrooms and situations demanding persuasion and negotiation.
Under Operations & Strategy, the student learns tools and approaches to manage physical aspects of infrastructure businesses. Through operations management, logistics and supply chain management and tools like six sigma, the student absorbs the complexities of various infrastructure processes. He also learns the basic statistical, computational skills.
With this exposure and with freedom to look at more sectors (e.g. Energy or Transportation) and certain advanced functional topics (e.g. M&A or Digital Strategy), the student learns the regulatory provisions and its applications in the areas of interpretation, implementation, arbitration /litigation modes.
