If we teach today’s students as we taught yesterday’s, we rob them of tomorrow. -John Dewey.

Welcome to the PSG Family of institutions of which PSGIM is a valuable member!!Let there be charity, so that other people can share my family’s prosperity” were the inspiring words from Shri P. S. Govindaswamy Naidu who laid the foundation for one of the most respected charitable trusts in the country, Nine years before an independent India emerged, this thought-seed was planted to further the cause of education and the first polytechnic was started under the aegis of the trust. That was the beginning and the acorn today is a magnificent oak tree of excellence in learning.Joy shared is joy doubled, but knowledge shared is knowledge trebled. This has been the PSG Group’s enduring philosophy.PSG IM in its earliest avatar was a department and a part of the PSG Institute of Technology. Its genesis was in 1971 and later it metamorphosed into a full-fledged institute in 1994, spurred by the onset of the liberalization of the Indian Economy. The 50+ year pedigree makes it one of the pioneering management institutes in Southern India. Active collaborations with IIFT, Alliance Francaise and University of Toledo, Hof University, Germany have put the institute in the forefront of management education today.
