Additional Chief Secretary

With Pandit Deendayal Petroleum University, we envisioned the creation


of a world-class university. To be one of the front-runners in imparting
education in the fields of management, energy & infrastructure,
humanities, engineering and liberal arts. And I am exuberant to announce
that Pandit Deendayal Petroleum University (PDPU) is now one of the
leading international universities of India. In a short span of seven years,
PDPU has reached a crucial juncture when a major transformation is taking
place in the world economy. PDPU now is old enough to create young
professionals who impart significant contributions to the economic and
the social landscape of India.
Today the corporate world seeks a generation of young people who are not
only academically sound, but are also capable to think innovatively. I feel
proud to see the holistic education system of PDPU successfully bringing
the best out of the students.
Id like to reiterate my whole-hearted support for PDPU and wish them all
the very best for their future endeavors and accomplishments.
All the Best!

Energy & Petrochemicals Department, Government of Gujarat


I feel a great sense of privilege in presenting the class of 2015 to you.
We at the school take pride in creating a set of management graduates
who can dynamically adapt to an ever changing business environment.
We are confident that the exposure imparted to them on campus will be
functionally relevant in the corporate world. As professionals who can lend
value, these young graduates have also been indoctrinated with humility
and integrity as priceless personality attributes.
The two year journey as I see it has been a truly transformational one. It has
been engaging, rigorous, collaborative and has presented a global frame of
reference for the students to internalize and apply to the evolving world of
management. Fine tuning these theories and cases as a generalized view
to all the corporate sectors imbibing the major domains of management
has been a niche and intense experience. These are the learning which our
young graduates extend to you.
I once again welcome you to our campus and hope you will find a set of
students rewired and ready to meet your expectations.

School of Petroleum Management, Pandit Deendayal Petroleum University

Pandit Deendayal Petroleum University


India needs to pay focused attention to industrial development and solving
problems of growing demand-supply gap in order to sustain both economic
development and rate of growth as envisaged in our development plan.
This is a challenge before all stakeholders and corporate stalwarts.
School of Petroleum Management (SPM) of Pandit Deendayal Petroleum
University has taken a bold step by accepting the challenge to produce
skilled manpower for the industry with highest level of competency, with its
pioneer batch of Energy and Infrastructure Management and the General
Management batch as well.
We need to produce manpower for the country, which is relevant and
employable. SPM has taken many steps in this direction by inviting all
stakeholders in formulating curriculum and syllabus, associating experts
from industry in Boards of Studies and arranging expert-lectures and
case studies, involving MBA students in solving real life problems of the
industry and many more. The continuous student-faculty interaction is one
of the major elements of pedagogy, by which students learn to exercise
their analytical aptitude resulting in innovative solutions of problems. We,
at SPM, are committed to produce relevant and socially useful manpower
required in the current business scenario. I am sure, our highly energetic
and intellectual students will find place to show their potential and worth
in relevant sectors of the industry.
I wish all our students a challenging and bright career ahead.

School of Petroleum Management (SPM) was established in the year 2006 to cater managerial
manpower requirements of oil and gas sector and has soon expanded to serve the larger Energy
and Infrastructure sector. With the formation of the Pandit Deendayal Petroleum University
(PDPU) in 2007 the Institute became a constituent body, today popularly known as SPM-PDPU.
The current batch of 2013-15 consists of two distinct programmes, the well established MBA
in Energy & Infrastructure and a newly introduced General Management MBA programme
offering specialization options to students in all important functional management area, viz;
Marketing, Finance, Operations and Human Resource Management.
The six batches of students that have graduated from SPM have got good placements.
The industry recognizes MBA Graduates of SPM as most suitable to fulfill their manpower
requirements. We at SPM recognize that a professional programme in management at
postgraduate level must equip students with clear concepts in every functional area of
management. Understanding of business and associated issues, and exposure to industry
practices are equally important for a successful managerial career. Studying the summer
internship projects (SIP) and the companies that took our students for SIPs is strongly
indicative that while domain specialization remains important we have been able to cater to
production, services and consulting organizations. Further, we have also been successful in
attracting a variety of Business and Industry organizations right from Financial Institutions,
Distribution Companies and Production & Operations establishments.
The curriculum at SPM is carefully designed and delivered to impart conceptual knowledge,
provide in-depth understanding of industry and enhance soft skill capabilities. Full-time
residential requirements and two years of engaging co-curricular and extra-curricular activities
also add value to the personality development of our students. Our dedicated team of full-time
faculty members are actively engaged in case writing, research and publication and takes deep
interest in shaping-up the young minds. We are fortunate to receive great support from the
industry. Experienced senior executives from industry always help us in our MBA admission
process, designing of curriculum, course development, teaching, research and case writing.
World class academic and physical infrastructure facilities on our campus provide a backbone
to creating a healthy and convenient learning environment for teachers and students.
Aspirants of a good management education in the fastest growing economy in India either in
Energy and Infrastructure sector or in other aspects of business management, consider SPMPDPU very seriously as an option.
We at SPM promise a robust infrastructure, engaging activities, invigorating environment and
award winning curriculum to make our MBAs one notch superior to whatever competition
that exists. Allow me to present my 59 students of MBA General Management 2013-15 batch
seeking your support in their final placement aspirations for a lucrative, fulfilling and rewarding
career with an opportunity to continue their learning beyond SPM.

pursue Dissertation, he/she has to take up extra elective courses worth of 6 credits to complete the required number of
Credits for the degree.

ADMISSION
SPM uses CAT (Common Admission Test, conducted by IIMs) score as an input for the admission process. Then it
uses group discussion and personal interview process to select the most deserving candidates for its programme.
The minimum eligibility criteria for admission to the programme is a Bachelors Degree with at least 50% marks or
equivalent CGPA).

Pedagogy
Case Studies

Human Resources

Teaching learning process at SPM mostly focuses on


Case Study method that includes dynamic process of
exchanging perspectives, countering and defending points
and building ideas that improve students understanding
and exposure to decision making process in the complex
business environment. The case studies are chosen
from different industries to start with and then gradually
focused on business aspects of all relevant sectors, as the
programme progresses.

Competent and dedicated professionals are the most


vital resource for any educational institution. SPM has
invested considerable efforts and resources to attract
an excellent group of human resources to further its
objectives.

Group Projects
Working with talented and accomplished peers provides
a unique opportunity for accelerated professional and
personal growth. Group projects, a major component
of most courses, help students to not only learn the
intended concepts and skills but also to develop and refine
skills in working in diverse groups. The groups are formed
from pools of varied disciplines, backgrounds, corporate
experience and career orientations to leverage on the
enormous diversity in perspectives. The projects are
designed in such a manner that the entire class benefits
with coverage of multifarious aspects of all the sectors
with no overlapping and duplication.

Beyond the Classroom


SPM offers a dynamic campus with outstanding study,
research and computer facilities. It also offers students
extraordinary opportunities for professional growth
through participation in various cultural and academic
clubs that organize field trips, academic seminars, cultural
programs, debates, discussions and other public services
like blood donation etc. Domain specific workshops are
also organized periodically to strengthen teaching learning
process.

Summer Internship
Summer Internship is a major component of the learning
process at SPM. At the end of third trimester, all students
are required to undergo summer internship of 8 weeks
with manufacturing companies, financial institutions, IT
and infrastructure majors, management consultancies,
FMCG companies, Media Organizations and others. On
successful completion of the training, a student is required
to make a presentation and submit a written report for
evaluation. The formal assessment and feedback of
the industry guides are also taken into consideration for
overall evaluation of summer projects.

Industrial Visits
As John Ruskin had once said The entire object of true
education, is to make people not merely do the right thing,
but to enjoy right things; not merely industrious, but to
love industry; not merely learned, but to love knowledge.
We at SPM believe that knowledge is incomplete without
the practical dimensions of the industry. To impart
an exposure of the challenges that are faced in the
industry, Industrial visit is used as a pedagogy wherein
the students tour the industries pan varied sectors.
It broadens their perspective across all the fields of
operations, marketing, finance and HR. This enhances
their knowledge by discussion and brainstorming with the
industry fraternity.

OTHER
INITIATIVES
BY
SPM STUDENTS
Being just another brick in the wall is an ideology that no
student at SPM believes in. Thus, efforts are made to go beyond
the expectations and do something for a greater good. The
students of SPM have taken various social initiatives such
as organizing a Blood Donation Camp in association with
Confederation of Indian Industry-Young Indians (CII-YI) saving
hundreds and thousands of lives. Also Raising Fund of an amount
equivalent to Rs.16000 from all the students that was utilized to
purchase a water boiler for children of a local school was a noble

STUDENTS
CLUBS

Clubs promise a unique melting pot of ideas, values, experiences, joy


rides, friendly terrains, grit, inspiration, and leadership and above all a
tremendous learning opportunity for all. Presentations on different
topics, Guest sessions, Debates, Discussion Forums, Quizzes, News
Crunches are a few activities that these clubs perform regularly. The
underlying philosophy of the clubs is to use students spare time
for personal growth. It not only helps in gaining knowledge but also
sharpens the communication skills.

Club MARCOM
Club MARCOM is the MARketing and COMmunications club of SPM. In this
competitive business scenario, marketing of products and values has become
a necessity. The corporate world is run by brands and not just by products/
services. Marketing, these days, is as important for business to business
(B2B), as it is for the business to customer (B2C) segment. At MARCOM, we
understand this and try to awaken the marketer in each of us through various
activities such as presentations, Adwise/Admad- the ad making competitions,
jargons, interactive discussions, GDs, book reviews etc. These activities also
help in developing the communication skills and out of the box thinking,
much needed to survive in the world of marketing. It is here that the students
of SPM learn the concepts of marketing in the various segments be it B2B,
B2C and C2C; and hence, making the students of SPM practical enough to be
challenged anywhere.

Club OPERE SHONZU

Club HR

The objective of Opere-Shonzu club is to make students realize


the importance of operations management in all domains
of industry. Students take initiative every week and enrich
themselves with various topics not only concentrated on hard
core operations but also operations management associated
with sales, finance, HR etc domains. The club also aims at
discussing about the latest tools and software used in industry
for optimizing the operations. At large such activities help
students to integrate the academics with real time operations
going on in the industry.

The HR club is the youngest club at SPM, hardly a year old. It


comprises of HR student members from the junior as well as
senior batch to involve all the students and make them think
from different perspectives by placing practical illustrations.

Club COGNIVIDS

Chai Ki Tapri pe Sessions

It is a well known fact that the human mind understands


and retains the most if something is conveyed in the form of
audio + video, ergo, we have Club Cognivids - the movies /
documentaries club of SPM. It is the youngest club of SPM. The
objective behind starting this club is to inculcate a documentary
culture in the students. Every week, the trailers of three
documentaries are shown to the students and a winning entry is
decided through polling. This winning entry is then showcased
in the club. After the documentary is over, an interactive
discussion on the same is conducted. These documentaries
help the students to broaden the horizons of their knowledge
and develop a better thought process. Once in a while, a
movie is also showcased in the club to take some load off from
everyones mind

A conversation between a student and a faculty at SPM led to


the beginning of this club. The aim of this club is to make the
students more aware of the latest happenings in the world
and making them more connected to the real world and hence
lessening the difference between an SPMite and Graduate from
some other B-School.

Club ENERGY
Energy Club is an initiative by students to add a new flavour, a new theme and
to capture the pulse of the campus. It gives an extra edge to understand, learn
and share knowledge on a common platform. This translates to enhance the
students intellect for their managerial domain from their peers and industry
experts.

Club FINNACLE
FINNACLE is a knowledge sharing platform which gives opportunity to cope
up with the constantly evolving world of Finance. Weekly activities such as
Debates, Quizzes, Guest Sessions and Presentations help expand the horizon
in the world of Finance. The conceptual clarity is achieved by the interactive
discussions among the students. News crunching sessions helps gaining
insight to the latest developments in the markets. With this the students
are able to withstand the circumstances of the bear market and ace the bull
market.

The HR club started as an initiative to give a boost to the HR


activities in the college. The main motive of the HR club is to
spearhead activities that could remove the traditional myths
surrounding HR as a function and to create awareness regarding
the importance of HR function in the current business scenario.
It facilitates the functioning of the Centre of Excellence for HR.
It provides a platform to the student community to understand
and enhance their knowledge in this field by getting associated
with the faculty, participating in events and contributing through
articles.

The session includes a class discussion on current affairs, latest


trends in the sector and market as a whole etc. The topic to
be discussed is decided a week in advance and a very healthy,
learning and fruitfuldiscussion takes place. Quite a few sessions
have taken place but the knowledge acquired is immense. The
session has 2-3 people who will be hosting the event so that it
goes in a smooth way.

Empanelment Committee

Placement Committee

The team focuses on building a two way relationship between


university and industry. It attempts to bring companies and
students at a platform where they can optimally use the
resources. It thrives in creating an enthralling relationship for
both the communities.

Following the words by Lawrence Bossidy I am convinced


that nothing we do is more important than hiring and
developing people. At the end of the day you bet on people,
not on strategies., the placement committee at SPM helps
in finding the best fit for your organization. The committee in
co-ordination with HR personnel helps the students in honing
their skills and preparing them for the future endeavors. They
maintain a close liaison with the potential employers.

An institution plays a vital role in building the career of an individual. At SPM, I have discovered my potential to

SPM educational program that helped me in establishing myself in this competitive environment. At SPM, apart

Naleen Saurav

Company: KPMG
Profile: Senior Consultant
Batch: PGP07
My two years at SPM were vital in helping me understand the dynamics of the oil and gas sector specifically and
energy scenario overall. I joined KPMG Advisory Services from campus and have been working here since last five
years. I have been able to leverage my learning to a large scale in my day to day role as a consultant.
In current dynamic economic scenario which is experiencing new challenges every day, role of manager has
become far more critical in foreseeing market dynamics and taking proactive steps for creation of shareholder
value. E&I was started seven years back & the alumni have received good response from industry, SPM has taken
a good initiative by starting General Management expecting the same response from the industry as general
management would be able to cater all different domains rather than just Energy & Infrastructure.

Ajeet Gupta
Entrepreneur
Batch: PGP09

The current is SPMs first non-domain specific batch, but this batch will always have an edge over any other
General Management batch of other well known colleges. Simply because they have been enlightened about
Energy sector indirectly as it was not part of their course, this young batch has special ability to look at matters
of corporate world with a dual perspective. Energy is as indispensable matter for any successful and growing
industry, so this batch along with its specialized knowledge can help non Energy industry to think ahead of the
obvious.

Tushar Shah

expectations and scale heights in organizations setting higher benchmark for upcoming batches.
