Tailor-made programs for the working professionals

  • These tailor-made programs are generally of short duration (3 to 5 Days) delivered by eminent speakers of that field.

  • Emeritus Prof. P K Jain from Department of Management Studies at IIT Delhi was the esteemed speaker of the workshop.


  • Subsequently, we organized a 5-days training programme on “Corrosion Control” in which 56 executives from various industries such as IOCL, GACL, GNFC, OPaL, Deepak Nitrite, BASF, GSFC, GHCL etc. participated. The training was imparted by 3- eminent resource persons namely Dr. V.S. Raja, Institute Chair Professor, IIT- Bombay, Dr. Elyaperumal Kailasanathan, Retd. Scientist of Department of Atomic Energy, GOI & Dr. Anil Bhardwaj, Former GM & Head of Material & Corrosion Section at Institute of Engineering & Ocean Technology, ONGC, Mumbai.

Business related training programs for potential young entrepreneurs


  • A swiftly evolving business landscape requires an equally dynamic workforce. One- dimensional skill sets are no longer the norm, and increasingly not an option. To fulfill the need, MDC will conceptualize training programs in areas like communication, critical thinking, finance, leadership, negotiation and problem- solving on need basis.
