The Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS), Mumbai – a premier institution known for fostering academic excellence in social work, and Bala Vikasa – a highly reputed non-profit organization with over 40 years of sustainable community development experience, have partnered together to offer two unique Executive Post Graduate Diploma (EPGD) programs in Innovative Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Social Entrepreneurship for the first time in Telangana.
With CSR and Social Entrepreneurship emerging as effective and viable models for development, a new space is being created for dynamic leaders to offer innovative solutions in these respective domains. However, there is a dearth of competent and trained professionals especially in the CSR sector, a field that is growing exponentially due to the CSR mandate by the Government of India.
These executive education programs are set to equip working professionals with strong theoretical frameworks and useful practical insights to help them emerge as strong leaders in these emerging domains.
These weekend academic programs will be taught over a period of 18 months at the newly inaugurated Bala Vikasa International Center, a state-of-the-art training and incubation facility located in a 20-acre scenic campus near the ORR at Keesara, Hyderabad. For the convenience of the students, some of the modules are going to be conducted at its training facility in the city.
Graduates from any discipline with over 3 years of work experience looking to enhance their career prospects in these fields are set to benefit greatly. Admissions are currently in progress for the April intake.
