Family businesses play an important role in shaping the national economy and as per a Credit Suisse study; two out of every three listed companies in India are family-controlled, making India the country with the highest presence of family businesses in Asia. The huge potential to create employment coupled with their long-term vision enables the family firms make a unique contribution to the global economy as well as to society in general. In recent times, a number of traditional family run businesses have been able to transform their organizations through the adoption of contemporary management practices. This has resulted in enabling their stupendous growth and huge profits. Many of these traditionally proprietor-driven companies have become Board-driven and have been pioneering several exemplary practices in the area of business management.

Our aim at SIBM Pune is to create and nurture leaders who will forge ahead to create a vibrant future for family-owned businesses. Given that we have completed 36 years of creating business leaders for the future we would like to continue this tradition and train, add value and mentor the future leaders of India’s finest family companies.

Our Post Graduate Diploma of Family Business Programme launched in 2012 is a unique approach to ensure that family business owners learn to appreciate and integrate key issues such as adherence to systems, transparency of business processes, an analysis of best management and governance practices and family continuity and leadership acceptability challenges. This will help in delivering an extra edge to those family businesses which are gearing up to become more competitive. Our programme is spread over a period of one year across two semesters. It requires the participant to visit our Institute for just 5 days five times a year for on-campus classroom sessions and the remaining time can be used in applying the concepts learnt and discussed during the on-campus sessions for their businesses.

The key objective of our programme is to prepare the participant of the PGDFB programme for a leadership role in his/her family business and to be a powerful influence in the family run business. With the need for family businesses to play to their strengths in the global competitive arena, it is time now to apply a professional approach as well as equip yourself with a Post Graduate Diploma in Family Business!

The highlights of the programme are:

  • 5x5 approach: the 5x5 approach means that participants need to spend only 25 days on the campus (5 days during each of the 5 visits during the year). This gives them ample scope to focus on their business while continuing to pursue the PGDFB programme.
  • Interactive Sessions: During the visits to the campus, the sessions that will be offered will involve a mix of interactive discussions, case study analysis with a focus on contemporary business practices.
  • Project Based Learning: The project based learning approach will ensure that participants actually get to apply all the concepts learnt in the class in their real on-the-job situation. These projects will be decided in consultation with the faculty and the monitoring of the projects will be done by the faculty.
  • Mentoring: The faculty guides will continuously mentor the participants to ensure that the learning from the projects is well assimilated and truly enriching for participants.

  • Operate as an effective family business owner-manager
